A wacky illustration of a chef creating ‘culinary magic’ with a tablespoon-wand (!) that appears to be emitting different ‘spice’ elements such as red chillies and bell peppers (a doff to the name of the establishment) is what catches your eye first as you traipse into IBIS’s 24-hour restaurant. The happy yellow walls with bursts of ochre, upbeat contemporary music and bright spheres of light hanging over every table add extra cheer to the pleasant ambience. Set your meal in motion with a big bowl of Moroccan carrot salad (meat eaters will also love the insalata di pollo), accompanied by soothing Thai ginger soup. For mains, the mellow panang curry with rice, meen moilee – if you are in the mood for Kerala comfort food – or fried stuffed chicken breast with mushroom sauce are a good bet.
My first experience with Ibis was at Porte De Gallieni, Paris, apart from stay their food was fabulous. I was just looking out for an opportunity to dine at one of the Ibis in India. Since that thought, I have visited this Ibis restaurant 2 times. Once for dinner at my wedding anniversary and second time at lunch with office colleagues. Unfortunately food was very forgettable. It was bland, had no taste and it was evident that management was cutting corners at the offered price point. I particularly remember Paneer tikka masala, The Paneer was so chewy that my friends called it eraser tikka masala. Ambiance is also average, just appear like some arrangement of tables and chairs in big hall. Staff was courteous but clearly they could not cover up for bad food. I will not recommend this place for any occasion/reason.
Excellent service by staff at the restaurant despite the unearthly hours they work. During my stay at IBIS 26 Mar 2 weeks the service provided by Sanjay and Ashutosh was very good and they made me feel comfortable.
Nice hotel. the food quality and quantity was not so good . service was good enough. i had been with my friends.
Spice It at Hotel Ibis was the destination for my Sunday breakfast buffet.The food is average and though you have variety,the quality is okay.The service is friendly but finally you want flavour.The cakes were not that good and the meal was not really something to perk you up.It was nearly full and most were in-house guests.The food can improve ,especially the desserts.The mix is Indian and continental .The choice in non veg is limited and expect standard sausages .The live counter serves a decent dosa and omellete.Expecting more taste
Good buffet dinner with nice ambience. Variety of veg & non veg food. Excellent service thanks to Vidit & Team.
Sundays are one of those days when the family demands a lavish and scrumptious breakfast spread with fluffy omelettes, poori-bhaji and warm fresh croissants. But not many restaurants serve an early morning breakfast rather they are more into brunch. ‘Spice It’ of Ibis Pune Hotel, Viman Nagar, is a beautiful property right at the heart of food district. Viman Nagar is hub for foodies and is a popular busy place especially on weekends. Spice It enjoys all the attention and buzzing of the area which pours in into the hotel. The restaurant is lovely and vibrant looking with splashes of cheerful yellow colour covering the walls. A funky illustration depicting a chef creating culinary magic with his spoon highlights the buffet area. To lend the room airiness large picture windows solves the problem by flooding the restaurant in soft natural sunlight. Spice It is classy and contemporary looking restaurant and not too heavy on your pockets too.
Though the menu of Spice It is multicuisine, it’s not very long. With limited variety the chef has put his whole attention in the perfect execution of the dishes so that when the food comes to your table, it is not only visually appealing it’s also lip-smacking delicious. Menu offers the diners a decent variety of dishes ranging from Indian, Continental, European, Asian and Italian cuisine. You can dig into the gastronomy fare of Spice It by starting with tangy chilli chicken, Moroccan carrot salad, paneer angara tikka, chatpata murgh tikka, sweet & sour corn salad, Bhatti ka murgh, spicy thai ginger soup, ajwaini fish tikka, sweet & sour coconut soup, insalata di pollo, potato galore, butter fried crispy vegetables, murgh dhaniya shorba, masala potato wedges and tomato soup. The appetizers are tasty enough to satisfy your appetite.
After the delicious appetizers you can move onto the main course. If you want something quick and filling opt for a sandwich or pasta which is immensely yummy and comforting. The conventional mains features some great hits like, chicken in red pepper sauce, mutton kolhapuri, Bengali fish curry, fried stuffed chicken breast in mushroom sauce, ratatouille, subz khada masala, prawns in hot garlic sauce, dal panchmel, dal khichadi, fried fish n chips, baked cauliflower & broccoli, herb infused roast chicken and paneer makhanwala. Finish with a glass of refreshing lassi or cool malai kulfi peppered with pistachio and almonds. Spice It is a wonderful and ideal family fine dining restaurant.
