Irish House

I love the ambiance of this place. The vibe is just great. I was introduced to this pub my by hubby. It had initially opened at Phoenix Mills, Lower Parel. At the time, I had a drink and ordered a portion of nachos. Wow – the quantity of the nachos was so much that, that was my dinner!

Irish House opened another outlet at Kala Ghoda a few months back. I went there recently. I love the  character that Irish House brings forth. Its warm, classy, chic, comfy, soothing, electrifying and relaxing – all at the same time. The outlet at Kala Ghoda has a larger space and like its Lower Parel counterpart, sports a huge screen. The music is fantastic – hats off to the DJ please.

As luck would have it, we reached there just before Happy Hours were ending. Buy 1 get 1 free. Ordered a Long Island Ice Tea.

Hmmm………..the drink was disappointing. Priced at Rs. 595, we’ve had better. To go with this, we ordered the Ultimate Cheese Combo.

This is a platter of 12 pieces of 3 types of cheesy delights. Starting from the closest to the farther-est, they rated themselves similarly. Closed to the sauce are the Jalapeno Poppers (which were the best), followed by Breaded Sharp Cheddar Cheese Ball (nice) and lastly the Mozzarella Sticks (average). At Rs. 395, they paired well with the drink.

Main course was Moussaka Veg. Price is Rs. 375. Its well flavoured and served with potato mash.

The Three Lion’s Steak & Chips was a good meal too. Priced at Rs. 575 it got an almost 4 on 5. Both dishes were served with potato mash and must say, they do make one of the better mashes I’ve eaten.

Overall rating would be a 4 on 5. They get this because of the ambiance they have created together with prompt service. If only food was to be considered, then it would get a 3.5 on 5. The drinks are on the expensive side, apart from a few starters, portion sizes are small ( for eg. Mini Tacos at Rs. 275 are 8 pieces of bite-sized tacos) and the Cigar rolls are just 5 pieces.) However, the main course is appetizing. To all the prices mentioned above you need to add 10% of service fee that they charge as well as the taxes.
