Restaurant Review: Soda Bottle Opener Wala, Noida

After visiting this place more than 10 times I thought of reviewing it on the blog. If you are missing Mumbai food and want to try out Parisian cuisines then you are welcome to visit Soda Bottle Opener Wala at Noida. It is located on 3rd floor, Mall of India, Noida.

When your taste buds are tired of Delhi food and you want to go experimental after watching too many recipe shows. You should move towards this place.  Soda Bottle Opener Wala is every Irani cafe’s 21 st century makeover- it’s their cousin that returned after a stint abroad. Eating here is an experience you must not miss.

Ambiance:

From outside it looks like an old cafe which is nothing jazzy nor painted with bold colors. The moment you step in you will be taken back to old Mumbai. You will see soda bottle handing and displayed on one wall then there’s another which has quirky messages written on it. Music played is of 90’s reminding you of your childhood. Have a look:

Menu: 

For a newcomer, menu will definitely look confusing but their staff is super supportive. They will explain you each dish and will offer their recommendation. Food is served in the old style tiffin box and on china bone plates.

What we tried: Maska Pav, Egg Kejriwal, Salli Chicken, Dhansak, Boneless chicken Farcha, Berry Pulav, Patra ni Mach and sikanji.

What we recommend: Maska pav, Dhansak (if you are fond of dal), Berry pulav (This is interesting combination of rice topped with dried berries and cashews) and not to miss Patra ni Mach.

Salli Chicken is tangy in taste so if you are someone who prefers spicy chicken then avoid this items.

Disappointment: Sikanji, yes don’t be surprised. Their twisted version of sikanjji wasn’t comforting for my taste buds. You may like it.

What’s new there:

Now they have started serving beer which was missing earlier and they have new menu.

Meal for Two: a proper 3 course meal will cost you around Rs.2000+ approximately.

Here’s my rating:

  • Ambiance: 4.5/5
  • Food: 4.5/5
  • Price: 4/5, it’s affordable.
  • Service: 4.5/5
  • Overall Rating: 4.5/5

If you haven’t been there then check this place out on this weekend.

Diet N Delicacy Cafe for Health Freaks in Noida

After standing for 1 hour in ATM line on a Sunday morning with thirst and hunger, all I could think about was food. I wanted to have a healthy breakfast brunch and the joints I knew in sector-18 Noida are all loaded with junk food.  While moving toward Axis Bank I came across a cafe “Diet N Delicacy”. It’s located right in front of kebab factory. If you know Noida well I am sure you can figure out the location. With beautiful board and quirky messages, I thought of having my food here.

It’s a small joint with seating of 10-15 people. The Owner has created a nice ambiance with wall painted in yellow and having messages on it. They claim themselves as ” First ever DIET FOOD Cafe in NOIDA”. Their objective is to provide healthy food to health freaks who consider having a clean and healthy food. They also serve Delicacy which is mainly non-diet food.

look at the walls and colors, isn’t it such a cute place!
What they offer:

They have both the variants; diet and non-diet food. But diet here doesn’t mean that food is going to be bland and boiled. They have wraps, salads and everything which you can think of while avoiding calories.  They offer starters, detox juices, mocktails, smoothies, soup, coffee, breakfast, lunch, dinner thali, desserts, kids meal etc

Their team of certified nutritionists and culinary experts have worked together and brought a menu that makes going on a diet a happy experience.  They use nuts as natural fats which are good for the body and don’t use oil in their diet food. Not to forget that the food is high in fibers, low cal and contains no preservatives (it’s mentioned on their website) used.  Plus it is also good on pocket. Have a look at the menu here:

After churning my brain for almost 20 mins I thought of tasting their diet – stuffed parantha. I was assuming that this will be done in olive oil and they must be calling this as low fat but NO, they proved me wrong. Their stuffed parantha is actually stuffed roti which tastes equally good and so is the served curd. I took chai after this meal and adrak chai is also too good.

Finally, I found a place in NOIDA where I can go and eat guilt free. Here’s my rating:

  • Ambiance: 3.5/5
  • Food: 4/5
  • Price: 4/5, looking at other joints I won’t call this place costly. It’s moderately priced.
  • Service: 4/5
  • Overall Rating: 4/5
