A friend of mine who runs the awesome cartoon blog Brainstuck, was in town a couple of weeks ago and we decided to catch a movie at the Ambience mall. After the movie, we pondered on some place to go and eat. He wanted to try out the brand new joint called Rockmans’s Beer Island (located on the top floor of Ambi mall).
Here follows a review of the place.
The place serves beer of course (the name kind of gives it away, doesn’t it). But its no ordinary bar. They have their own brewery inside the restaurant and all the beer is fermented fresh. Now, that makes it different (if not unique, as this is not the only micro-brewery in town).
The Beer – I don’t normally like beer. However, I did develop a taste for a particular type of beer which is common in Germany (its called wheat beer or Weizen). And surprise, surprise, they offer wheat beer at Rockman’s. And it was pretty good as well. They do offer a number of other brews, and you can choose to order a large glass or the regular ones (the photo shows the regular ones).
We were joined by a couple of other friends and all of these beer-drinking guys said that the beer was good (remember that I am not too big on beers).
The Food – the food was nice. We ordered a variety of starters and dishes, and there were no complaints with the food quality. The menu is varied, though it is heavily biased towards the non-veg variety of food. So, you vegetarians will have only a handful of options to choose from.
The Ambience – the environment in the restaurant (I call it a restaurant) was pretty bright and cheerful. They have this little booths which look like barrels/kegs (call it whatever you want), in which you can sit 4-6 people. But you can only use them if you are only going to have some beer, as the tables in them are tiny. Other than that, there are normal tables and of course a bar space where you can sit if you happen to be alone or with a friend.
The Price – the place is very expensive. That’s all I can say.
Conclusion – nice place but very pricey. Will probably go back though.
