After a (let’s say) super fun run at South Ex, Circus set tent at Cyberhub and even though the space here is much smaller, the vibe however just as jubilant. The happiness reflects through the colorful ambiance, fusion favoured menu and service. They have a pretty cool playlist, open mic nights and match screenings.
We started with thing ming mushrooms and paneer tikka masala pizza. Stating with the mushrooms – shitake and oyester mushrooms, wok tossed and topped with sesame seeds and spring onions. This super crunchy version didn’t match up to the comparitively authentic one at Chinese places but the crunch makes it apt as a bar bite.
Paneer makhni pizza – a crazy dislodged thin crust pizza, smothered with a makhni creamy sauce, paneer cubes and delectable cheese. Not many places get fusion pizzas right especially with makhni base as it tends to get rather greasy. This however was a perfectly baked and perfectly cheesy pie.
Amritsari fish and chips – again a fusion treat, battered fish fried to crispiness served with puffy fryums and tandoori mayo. The fish was extremely fresh and the desi batter made it closer to home and heart.
For mains we tried their tiffin dabbas – butter chicken khichdi which got our imagination at once and we simply couldn’t resist and paneer butter masala. The paneer was creamy, super soft and very tantalizing, pair with either jeera rice or mirchi parantha, this makes for a rather good, homely meal. Butter chicken khichdi – this was a frenzied affair. Creamy butter chicken gravy, succulent chicken bits and muddled with rice to a perfect consistency. This is one kind of khichdi that I can gobble up any time.
Circus for a fun affair of butter chicken khichdi and paneer makhni pizza.
PS – I do want to mention that when restaurants go overboard with the decor and do their loos in accord with their theme. It’s awesome to keep some elements, but this one was sort of a bummer which made me use the sanitizer instead of washing my hands. Visit them to see what I mean!!
