Restaurant Review - Ales, Brews and Ciders
Ales is the perfect place for everyone whether you want to go for dinner and drinks, party or host a private or corporate event. The sprawling property boasts of a outdoor seating area as you enter along with a closed section where they host parties and then there is massive outdoor section behind where you can dine or host a private gig. I went there recently for dinner and drinks and tried out a variety of dishes and loved the food and service.
To start with, we had the Belgian wheat beer which is made using magnum hops with notes of coriander and orange peel and had a smooth finish.
The Bacon nachos were perfect to munch on with the beer and had a generous amount of bacon so it was delicious! I also had watermelon and basil martini which had vodka, fresh watermelon juice and basil and was just perfect for a warm evening.
Being a hardcore lover of red meat, I tried the Asian Stir fried pork with veggies in a mild garlic sauce with a hint of soya. This is amazing.
We followed this with crispy fried chilli lamb which had thin and crispy lamb pieces in a spicy asian chilli hoison and oyster sauce.
I washed these down with a cucumber martini which had vodka, fresh cucumber, lemon and sweet and sour syrup. Again delicious and refreshing and just the perfect amount of sweetness.
After this we moved on to seafood and ordered the beer battered calamari which had crispy fried squid in a light batter. This was the best calamari I've had in Pune till date. It was fresh and flavorful. Do not miss this!
Next up I tried Prawn Momos for the first time here on the recommendation of a friend and they were incredible! Do try this if you are a momo lover. I loved these!
We also had the prawns satay which had grilled and minced prawns served on lemongrass skewers. Again really delicious.
Lastly, I had the kiwi rock which is made with vodka, fresh kiwi, lemon and sweet and sour which is a must for kiwi lovers!
Overall, some great food and awesome drinks coupled with good service and a really nice ambience make Ales an awesome destination to wine and dine!
