If you view it from outside Retox gives a very LA kind of a vibe, but as you enter inside you get the feel of a loft in downtown Manhattan. With exposed ducting and low hanging Edison bulbs, the small space is very tastefully decorated. The food menu compliments the bar menu with lots of quick bites to accompany the flowing alcohol. The staff is very friendly and gives good suggestions for drinks and food. They do have events happening every now and then, with every night having a theme of its own.
This one is in Viman nagar along with many other popular joints... The ambience is good, the service was quick. We tried a couple of cocktails and the presentation was good. Overall good place.
It is a well-known fact that the Monk romances the monsoons like nobody's business. And to celebrate this romance, Retox has recently launched a Monk-soon Menu for a limited period. Clubbed with a new menu, they called a few bloggers over for a tasting and feedback session and below is the narrative of my experience. The décor is extremely well thought out and gives off very positive and happening vibes. The quirky art on the wall, too helps elevate the mood. Retox Trademark Cocktails The Beemer [Rs. 429] is already one of Retox’s most popular cocktail. Considering my dietary restrictions, the bartender agreed to make this without any added sugar. And trust me, it still retained its delicious flavors. This is one drink that’s worth the drive to Viman Nagar. #HighlyRecommended On the other hand, the French Margarita [Rs. 429] – made with Tequila, lime and sugar, and topped up with red wine – did not taste good at all without the sugar. The fact that the proportions of the liquids too were awry, pulled the drink down a further couple of notches. Monk-soon Menu The Flambéed Manchow Soup [Rs. 219/259] was the classic manchow soup flambéed with Old Monk at the table. Unfortunately, we would not discern any flavor of the Old Monk in the soup, apart from the flambé. Suggestion given to blend it in after the theatrics. The Kanda Bhajiya with Old Monk Imli Chutney [Rs. 199] was hands down the star of the Monk-soon Menu. The bhajiyas sported a dark brown color and had a crisp coating however could do without drizzle of chutney on top as that made it a little soggy. However, it was the chutney that stole the show. An absolutely foodgasmic combination of tamarind pulp and a generous dash of the rum, the chutney is sure to take you over the edge! #YumYum #HighlyRecommended The Old Monk Flamed Lollipop [Rs. 249] had a fate similar to the soup, with the monk not making its presence felt as strongly as expected. Feedback given to amp up the potency of the alcohol. Apart from the dishes from the Monk-soon menu, we also tried some old favorites and some new dishes from the new menu that’s launched at Retox. Small Plates The Loaded Roti Chips [Rs. 179] is another Retox special. Chapati crisps, garnished with bacon bits, sprinkled with Retox salt [their secret mixture 😉] and served with green chili thecha. The crispiness of the roti strips was complemented by the soft bacon bits really well and the thecha was so deliciously spicy yet oh-so tempting that we simply couldn’t stop. Thankfully the sour cream provided some much-needed relief from the heat. #YumYum The Butter Chicken Fries is a perfect amalgamation of everything wonderful in the world. Crunchy fries topped with oodles of the butter chicken curry is a combination that’s unputdownable. #DeliciousDelicious The Bacon & Cheese Crostini [Rs. 249] had a nice flavor however the bread wasn’t uniformly moist. Some portions retained enough moisture while others felt a tad dry. The Devilled Pork Sausage [Rs. 329] was another downer. The sausage wasn’t cooked through and the sauce too disappointed. Unfortunately, it seemed that they had received a bad batch of the pork which resulted in a poor dish. The Green Garlic Fish [Rs. 299], on the other hand, had crispy Basa tossed with clarified butter, crispy garlic and chilies and tasted absolutely delicious. #YumYum Large Plates The Burmese Khao Suey Chicken [Rs. 329] was a lovely looking dish with some amazing flavors. The colorful condiments were nearly arranged in small bowls which gave a sense of symmetry to the oddly shaped plate with the noodles and curry. The crunchy garlic bits in the noodles go well with the rich and creamy curry. Not many people can perfect the flavor profile however Retox has nailed it. #DeliciousDelicious The Saoji Mutton [Rs. 349] was the traditional Maharashtrian spicy curry with ‘kala masala’. While the mutton itself was perfectly made and had all the signs of an authentic spicy saoji dish, the accompaniments need changes. I would’ve preferred jowar bhakri over the plain paratha and Indrayani or Ambemohar rice over the basmati rice, which wasn’t the best fit to the mutton dish.
15th of November and a bunch of close knit friends saw me groove to some catchy pop melodies, albeit a bit uncharacteristically hesitant at first, yet, as the night progressed, my feet were none to be left behind! Retox- is “The social Fix” for people looking to enjoy good food, drinks & music. A modern day promoter of the avant-garde, they are known to make it more easier for you to get a hand on your drinks & bar bites easily. Of course, I’m talking about the award winning design for the seating arrangement coupled to the bar. They did rightfully classify a teetotaller like me as an “Abstainer” when offering the drinks menu, and so I got to try out the “Green Juice” & “The Chia Seeds cooler”. The former being subtly minty with a hint of coconut, and the latter with just the right amount of creaminess paired with some watermelon/sugar syrup & chia seeds to appease me. A setting such as the one at Retox ensures that you stay put for a long time. I arrived here at around 7 PM and left at 11 PM! Because the food, bar bites & music kept me hooked! Their songs combine good music & smart, edgy ideas, enough to make you go “Oooh, Aaah!” on seeing the presentation of the cocktails! From colourful & Bubbly/ frothy “Mad scientists” to “Smoking Goblets & Skulls”, it sure is a lot of chemistry and one hell of a treat to your eyes, and the fact that they taste absolutely satisfying is attested by my friends who accompanied me! If food is your thing, like mine, then these are the must haves for you, no questions asked! •Roti Chips: These are chips in every sense i.e Chatpata and a great thing to munch on. Pair it with some thecha to get that extra dose of spice! •Retox Original Fries: Shoutout to everyone who loves their fries “LOADED”. •Hummus Peri Peri: Ah! My favourite and also a part of my staple diet. Glad to know hummus is gaining popularity in India, and we absolutely loved this variant made with some Peri Peri. •Chicken Satay Skewers: It’s plain and simple Asian food, however, that peanut sauce gives you the actual burst of flavours in this dish. •Chicken Malai Kebab: Soft, juicy and flavourful. A bit on the sweeter side, but not to be missed for the love of chicken. •Butter Chilli Fish: The first seafood dish that we ordered was the “Asian Tandoori Basa” which failed to impress us (was a bit higher than expected on salt content, which was duly noted & I’m sure it will be taken care of). However, the Butter chilli fish made up for its predecessors shortcomings. This crisp fried Basa offers a slight hint of garlic and chilli, enough to help yourself multiple times while at it! •Mutton Tawa Pulao: We were apprehensive at first, yet the mutton turned out to be good surprisingly. Tender cooked with enough juice to keep you craving for more! Pro Tip: * Dip some pita bread in hummus, top it with some mushrooms (Incase you’re ordering “The mushroom hot pepper” which was also great!) * Engulf a chunk of the Chicken Malai Kebab in some pita bread and dip it in some Hummus before devouring it. * Thank me later! In short, Retox, is one place that you definitely got to visit, for their food & drinks, and specially with friends who dig Desi music! 😝
Nice innovative name and pub. Convenient location, helpful staff, all brands of beer and drinks available. Good to go with friends, girlfriend as well as with family.
We were 4 people and ordered 10 various types of drinks - cocktail, bira, mocktail, draught beer and three starters which came to a total bill of 2500 which is decent as compared to other places. The best starter was chicken dragon wings. Mocktails weren't that great but cocktail woo woo was good if you like sweet ones with little tangy taste. Ambiance was good they played old hollywood songs. Our bill included extra mojo which we didn't ordered,but they sorted and got us the correct bill. They also have Valet parking which is good. Overall decent experience.
