A silly restaurant that thinks it is Urban Tadka, NH-1 makes you laugh with the way it is run. Waiters being trained on the job even after all these years, managers struggling to keep themselves from hitting the waiters, patrons wondering why the Chinese dishes taste funny – the chicken and prawns did taste like each other (we didn’t do drugs until much later that night), me wondering why this dhaba-themed would have Chinese dishes, and people not minding the chaos that is almost always on because the overpriced alcohol has them in a relaxed mood; a meal at NH-1 makes for decent entertainment if you don’t mind your money being wasted.
Budding restaurateurs should take their staff to watch the goings-on at NH-1 (short for ‘national highway 1’) in Andheri East even on a not-so-busy day to show them how not to be. Overstaffed, untrained, confused and always apologetic… this place remains a complete mess.
