As per Greek mythology, Pandora was the first woman to be created by Zeus the king of gods. He bestowed her with all the essentials of being alive and happy and also gave her a box, which was to be preserved and never opened. Being a woman it was difficult for her to abstain from opening a box with possibilities and so she did. Pandora opened the box only to release all the evils of the world that flew away leaving behind only hope in the box. Now Zeus should have formally renamed it to Red Box right then, for they have been my hope for good food and quality time ever since then :p
Red Box is a restaurant with multiple outlets and belongs to the China gate group of restaurants. This one outlet in andheri east is again placed along side Caravan Serai and serves the same amazing food like the other outlets.
The interiors of the outlet is done very well with comfortable seating, decorative lighting, thematically done floor, wall and roof and a centrally places sparkling bar. And by obvious means they have painted their box, Red! They played good music too. Staff lets you take your time to be comfortable and study the menu and would not barge into conversations irrespective of how long you take.
I moved beyond my stereotype red bull to order a virgin pina colada and did not regret. Pina colada was blended very well and tasted just apt. The presentation could have been better though.
If I am at red box I have to order a paneer sashlik platter. They serve melt in the mouth cottage cheese marinated in sashlik sauce with rice, French fries, mashed potato and sautéed veggies . This time they some how did not serve the mash potato though, I did not enquire either. It is a dish for which I can go to this place over and over again.
Ordered for a six-inch farm yard pizza. Topped with onion, mushrooms, black olives, capsicum, american corn, tomatoes and loads of cheese it was a good pick. The thin crust base was very crisp and crunchy which added to the taste.
They are synonymous to good food, good music & good ambiance.
