My review of The Vintage Room – this is a unique restaurant as it offers two cuisines that I thought would never be paired together. Indian and Italian cuisines are offered here but the two cuisines are separate from one another, meaning it is not a fusion restaurant. This idea is good for those who have mixed cravings for different dishes.
The crostone caprese was good but it was a simple dish with no vinaigrette on the salad for some reason. The cheese was nice and soft, while the tomatoes were fresh as well.
I enjoyed the gnocchi a whole lot here as it was fresh and each bite was perfect. The sauce was tasty and this dish is great for vegetarians.
Finally, I had enough room in my stomach to try the scampi risotto, and I’m glad I had room. This dish was my favourite as it was creamy and the rice was cooked well. I liked how there were a lot of shrimp present, as I know sometimes the risotto overpowers any protein in the dish.
This restaurant deserves a rating of 4/5.
I ordered the crostone caprese for 30DHS, frittura Di mare for 30DHS, bruschetta al pomodoro for 25DHS, gnocchi for 60DHS, scampi risotto for 60DHS, and the garlic naan for 15DHS.
The pricing of the dishes here are affordable and the portion sizes were huge.
The service was great here as the staff members were polite and ready to take your order. The food came out a little slower than what is expected to be normal but the food was hot arriving at the table, so that was good.
The ambience of this restaurant was classy and elegant. I was impressed with the gold chain curtains and the fancy chandeliers. It was so chic, especially when you see a grand piano at the back of the restaurant. The setup of the tables and decor makes it look like an expensive restaurant, but I was surprised with the low prices of the dishes here.
