Lunch at AB’s vadodara

ABs – Absolute Barbecues have recently opened its outlet in Vadodara and people in my office were waiting to go and so was I and finally visited yesterday with office colleagues and came up with a post to write a short review. First of all, Absolute Barbecues have grown to a brand new, it’s quite famous in Hyderabad, Pune, and Bangalore. I’ve lived in Hyderabad for 3 years and ABs – Absolute Barbecue was quite famous there. We used to visit ABs quite frequently and everybody in my friend circle used to love it. For the past year, I’m living in Vadodara and I got really excited when I came to know that they are going to open their outlet in Vadodara. So, what is so special about Absolute Barbecue, Hyderabad, you can read my post about ABs – Gachibowli, Hyderabad.

There are a couple of things that I used to love about ABs in Hyderabad and one of them was beer. I loved to have been along with my food at ABs. But, as liquor is banned in Gujarat, let’s talk about food and other things and how I found ABs and my experience at absolute barbecue Vadodara. I’ll also be comparing it with Barbeque Nation. Looking at the Absolute Barbecue Vadodara menu, I couldn’t wait to go give it a try. Let’s dive into the review now.

Food – Starters

There are 6 different kinds of starters in veg and I loved each one of them. They had crispy corn, paneer tikka,Hara bhara kabab, mushroom, and pineapple. Again I was missing the beer sips with my starters. I think I’m cribbing too much. Anyways, the starter’s taste was amazing but surely I was missing Barbeque Nation’s cajun potato. In veg, the starters were well cooked and tasty, but my non-veg colleague said that the prawns and other items were a little overcooked and after putting them on the grill it became hard to chew. Now, here comes the best part of ABs, we told this to the waiter and he immediately replaced the prawns with mildly grilled ones and he made sure that every item served thereafter was according to our preference.

Live Counters

In the live counter, they had chaat, panipuri, tachos, pizza, pasta, and many other things in non-veg too. I liked Pasta and pizza the most, do try the white sauce pasta. Other items like chat, panipuri, and tachos were also good and better than the Barbecue Nation. In drinks they had 4 different kinds of mocktails, I tried the strawberry one it was okayish.

Main Course

The one thing that I hate about myself is that I eat too many starters and live counter dishes and very little space is left for the main course in my stomach. But, this time managed to keep some space empty. In the main course, they had 7-8 dishes to offer. I liked Dal makhani the most, it was amazingly cooked and I loved it. Paneer too was tasty. Veg biryani and bingo aloo and other items were also good. I didn’t like the noodles though, they should improve on it.

In desserts, there were plenty of options available. They had a brownie, phirni, gulab jamun, kheer, cakes, ice cream,  I had huge expectations from phirni and kheer but was disappointed as they were not good in taste. Brownies, gulab jamun, and other things were good

Service and ambiance
A huge thumbs up to the staff and the kind of service they provide. They are really polite and provide quick service. They take feedback seriously if you didn’t like any starter, just tell them and they will not hesitate to tweak it according to your taste. Ambiance too is amazing with comfortable sitting.

The buffet price for veg at Absolute Barbecue Vadodara is ₹550 per person and for Non-veg it’s ₹625 Per person.

Frankly, I didn’t like the ABs Vadodara as much as I liked ABs in Hyderabad. If I compare with Barbeque nation then I think its a tie, ABs aces ahead in the main course and live counters. Its a tie in starters. In the case of desserts, I think Barbecue Nation aces ahead.
