I was invited to the bloggers table at Skylit, Citrus, on a Sunday evening. Citrus hotels is part of the Mirah group, headquartered in Mumbai. Citrus hotels have a vibrance that reanimates you, a splendid facade that leaves you speechless and a great choice of dining options that never ceases to amaze you 🙂
Citrus hotels are designed in such a way that they offer a magical experience to each and every guest. They have 15 hotels across 10 destinations in India.
A beautiful collection of the spirits 🙂
Here’s a logo design that I did for Citrus 🙂
Skylit in the Citrus Cunningham property, was where this bloggers meet was held at. Cunningham road is about 5 minutes away from both the business hub at M.G road and the top shopping destination; commercial street!
Skylit, quite literally is a perfect way to gaze into the stars, while having a peaceful dinner! The ambience is jus spectacular and it’s got a nice inclusion of the color blue in its decor 🙂 This should definitely go into the collection of romantic terrace restaurants. The bar has a couple of large screens for diners to enjoy their favorite game!
Some of us were a little late to this event as were reviewing another place for an early dinner! But we made the most of it, while we were here.
The mixologist greeted us and presented us a preset cocktail menu for the bloggers meet. A couple of drinks with a vodka base, the names of which I forget, we picked from this menu. We picked Margarita, Long Island Ice Tea, Mojito and the cosmopolitan, red wine from the regular bar menu. The cocktails were well made, they were having just the right abv in them. The mixologist was super courteous and made me my favorite mix; kiwi and vodka! It was absolutely wonderful, the gesture and the drink!
The starters that we had were roast chicken fajitas, murgh malai tikka, zafrani paneer tikka, aloo tikki, broccoli with cheese, jalapeno fish, bbq chicken wings and a very beautiful collection of breads and crackers with butter and some sauces! I absolutely loved the crackers, aloo tikki and bbq chicken wings! Special mention for the paneer tikka, they tasted as good as they looked, very soft and full of flavors with a tinge of sweetness.
Here’s a palette cleanser in the form of an ice gola 🙂
The main course spread is at the buffet counter. It all starts with a good collection of international salads. You could pick from the exotic greek salad, german potato salad to the very basic green salad !! They had chicken biriyani, veg pulao, paneer butter masala, veg noodles, dal makhni. The veg pulao was quite bland and the noodles were below par as well. The dal makhni was the saving grace. The paneer butter masala was having just the right amount of sweetness and was good. I didn’t get a chance to try the biriyani though 😦
Coming to the desserts, they have a huge dessert spread! Most of which is Indian. They have Shahi tukda with rabdi, milk barfi, gaja, peda, tiramisu, mango cheesecake, rasgulla, crea caramel custard, plum pastry and many more!
Rahul Dev, the Manager at Skylit was our host for the evening and he gave us all a great company through the night. He also shared some of his dining experiences during Ramzan, back in the 90s. That topic came up as we visited this place around the Ramzan time 🙂
This spectacular experience could be yours at ₹799 +TAX ! What are you waiting for ? Head over to Skylit, Cunningham Road 🙂
