Review: Drama Co., Mumbai

When we think of a lounge, we imagine a cosy place with great music, amazing cocktails and mocktails and of course, delicious finger food. Drama is almost there, but yet not quite there.

THE AMBIENCE:

Its a little too brightly lit for a lounge but the music is decent. When we heard the name ‘DRAMA’, I honestly expected a little bold throw of interiors and crockery and maybe something resonates with drama, but sadly, nothing does.

THE FOOD:

Mocktails:

a) Berry Berry – a mix of three berries blueberries, cranberries, strawberries and lime. This was good.
b) Drama Queen – Apparently this is the signature mocktail, but it doesn’t really stand out.

Appetisers:

a) Loaded Veg Nachos: Honestly, I’ve had better nachos and these aren’t bad but they were served slightly soggy, which can be owed to the extremely molten cheese. Can be/should be improved.
b) Baked Mozzarella Mushroom: These were quite nice. Well balanced flavours and crisp bread as base.
c) Paneer Tikka ( Clay Oven Baked Paneer): Too spicy and the flavour of mustard oil was too strong.
d) Stuffed Mushroom: Loved these creamy mushrooms stuffed with cottage cheese and cashews. A must have.

Main Course:

a) Veg Biryani: Too spicy once again. Should use long grain basmati instead of the tukda.
b) Makhani Dal: Loved it! Rich and creamy. Compliments to the chef.
c) Wok Tossed Black Pepper Paneer: Very well balanced and delicious. Paneer can be softer.
d) Mozzarella flatbread: Very light and tasty. The pesto enhances the flavour.

Dessert:

a) Gulab Jamun: Tender and perfectly sweetened.
b) Tresleches: Light, mildly sweet and good for those who like creamy desserts
c) Churros: Served with molten chocolate, these are a dessert lover’s delight.

Verdict:
Overall, it is a place that really needs to do justice to the name ‘DRAMA’ instead of being a run of the mill restaurant which is confused between being a bar/lounge/fine dine.
