While the name says café – suggesting a cosy hotel bistro – this place is more of a buffet-and-a-la-carte kind of restaurant. Lunch, dinner and late-night buffets are a mainstay, popular especially with St. Laurn guests and visitors, as well as corporate lunch parties and large groups of friends and family. The à la carte menu offers rather succulent Indian food, like a Charminar seekh (skewered lamb kheema stuffed with cheese and coated with egg and green chutney) or takatak gutchi (garlicky mushrooms stuffed with cilantro-spiced cheese). Their creamy black lentil dal Kabila pairs well with a green peas pulao, if not the spicy prawns biryani or wholesome thair sadam (curd rice). Alternatively, mop up delicious gosht hara pyaz (who knew tender lamb tasted so good with creamed spring onions) or mild methi matar malai with soft roomali rotis, and you are good to go. Note: We also did like their competent little list of Oriental offerings.
Partying in buzzing central Koregaon Park may be tremendous fun but it may also leave you peckish at the later hours. If search for something quick and filling turns out to be futile then hop over next door at St. Laurn Hotel to end all cravings. The hotel is a busy place especially on weekends or late hours when hungry punters barge in demanding for a scrumptious and quick meal. ‘Café 15A’ may sound like a café or hotel bistro to you but it actually is a full-fledged fine dining restaurant open 24X7. You would often find business associates, large group of friends and families taking advantage of the restaurant’s facilities at odd hours. The place is often quiet which makes it ideal for those power lunches where you crack a major deal over a plate of creamy risotto. Décor is masculine and earthy with strong contemporary influence. Enjoy your meal at the bar with a glass of scotch or recline in the cosy leather couches and reflect over your day.
The service at Café 15A is smooth and prompt. The staff is quick on their feet and attuned to your needs at all times. What you will like about the menu is that it’s quite elaborate and wide, bursting with options ranging from Asian, European, Indian and Italian. This multi-cuisine menu is very satisfying for a lazy luxurious meal and even for a quick on-the-go bite. Drop in for a snack which will guide you towards, chicken salad, French onion soup, chicken satay, vegetable dim sums, Charminar sheekh, eight treasure soup, takatak gutchi, crispy burnt basil lamb, crackling delight spinach, oyster chicken, mahi tikka, sunehare sheekh, reshmi kebab, broccoli sesame salad, tomato mozzarella bruschetta, mulligatawny soup and butter pepper prawns. Study the bar menu for the perfect drink to go with your meal.
There are some classics on the menu like seafood thermidor, gambari trifolati, stroganoff and a variety of Italian spread. Take some satay fried rice and pair it with lamb in hoisin sauce or cottage cheese in hot garlic sauce. If you feel like some Indian food than soak a piece of khasta roti in hot curries like Malabar kozhi curry, methi mutter malai, dal kabila, goan fish curry and Awadhi paneer korma. A decadent sweet course will act as a perfect finish so indulge in darsan or lemon cheese cake. Café 15A is a pocket-friendly place which is a bargain.
