The Junkyard Cafe is a concept driven café where the raw junk world is used to bring out the most grungy, contemporary and exclusive décor. As soon as you enter, your eyes are instantly drawn to the various installations made using junk materials such as tyres, barrels, car parts, old radios, TVs, beer bottles and more.
Junkyard Cafe has its massive terrace seating, where you can enjoy the drinks overlooking the city lights.The outlet has very colourful & exquisite décor with lots of imagination, innovation and thought given to it with the rustic wooden interior. In addition to a full-bar menu, the Junkyard Café provides guests with a lengthy list of meal choices. Menu options include a variety of delicacies from North Indian, Mediterranean and Asian cuisine.
If you’re a cocktail person, go for Edison Bulb, which comes in three different kinds of blends in addition to some nitrogen drama. Non-alcoholics can go for Kaffir based mocktails which are a treat for your taste buds.
Junkyard Cafe offers a range of cuisines and calories you will be consuming. At the start of the menu, there is a small section dedicated to health food. Personal favourite from this is a healthy wheat pasta.
Try sticking to their Indian food in which we would love to recommend tandoori mushroom and sesame panner tikka which tasted simply amazing. The size of portions was pretty satisfactory. Chilli paneer, however, was extremely spicy and not a dish we would recommend until and unless you love chilly at your best.
The service was slow at points but at times super fast for no reason. The waiters sometimes were simply clueless of what is being served which somehow created miscommunication and delay in orders at many points. The only thing that covered up for all that was live gigs and performance happening in the restaurant.
Try Dimsums, they were done pretty well. The covering was thin and stuffing was adequate. I felt that was something Junkyard prepared as their special dish. 4 season veg pizza with olives, bell peppers, capsicum and onion. A thin crust pizza, crunchy on side and taste just fine with oregano and chilli. In mains, go for paneer Jodpuri Mathania. Chunks of paneer dipped in a tomato onion and ginger gravy. The aftertaste of Kasthuri methi and ginger was pleasing. Complement it with Lachcha Parantha and you are good to go. Thai curry was tempting, had that perfect amount of coconut creaminess and right thai flavours. In desserts , most of the options from the menu weren’t available.
Overall experience was good but with little, if ’s and but’s accompanying the whole experience. But still, there is a lot to try and enjoy. Enjoy your visit. Happy Eating!
