The Classroom is your destination for reliving the Classroom life. The Classroom is a Themed Bar with amazing food and drinks.
Classroom is another great addition to the Sector 29 market. The restaurant sprawls across 4 floors, including their beautifully done up terrace. The restaurant’s walls are done up with paintings that will surely remind you of your school-days. The first floor, where we were seated, had a pool table in the smoking area, and a huge bar designed like a school canteen. But the focal point for each floor are certainly the huge tankers with freshly brewed beer.
And that’s what we started with. We were served taster shots of their 4 house brews- Dark, Blonde, White, Triple. While all of them were really good, our favorite was the White beer.
Along with these, we also had their signature cocktail- Couples Chemistry, and a few mocktails. Couples Chemistry was a mix of vodka and green apple, finished with house brew, which was presented in a very interesting manner. The drink was filled in a clear rectangular container, with a toppled over beer bottle. The mocktails were also very tasty- Desi Tadka was our favorite, with a nice blend of coriander, lemon juice, and chaat masala, topped with coke. Mand Buddhi was served in a bulb-shaped glass and had pineapple juice and kaffir lime. Rosy Maam was a sweet and sour drink made with pomegranate seeds and rosemary, and though the rosemary flavor was nice, the drink was a tad too sweet.
On the food front, we started with the Palak Patta Chaat which had crisp, thinly battered spinach leaves doused with yogurt and sauth.
This was followed by the Veg and Non-Veg Platters.
The Veg Platter consisted of veg Lukhmi (a Hyderabadi dish made of crisp savory pastry filled with minced vegetables and spices), Veg Biryani Arancini (arancini-type balls made with veg biryani, served with tomato chutney), Achaari Paneer Tikka, Cheesy Kebab (made with a blend of cheese and vegetables shaped into cylindrical kebabs), Badami Broccoli (broccoli coated in cream cheese sauce and char grilled), and Tandoori Aloo. The lukhmi was a nice dish but could have done with a bit more spice; the biryani arancini was super flavorful; the paneer tikka was soft and flavorful, cheesy kebabs were perhaps our favorite dish on the platter- they had a cheesy, gooey interior blended with veggies, and a crispy outer layer; the badami broccoli was perfectly cooked and had just the right amount of sauce on it; and the tandoori aloos had a nice smoky taste and were delicately seasoned.
The Non-veg Platter consisted of Lukhmi, Marghi-na-Farcha (which was their take on the Parsi delicacy of deep-fried chicken, which was crisp outside and juicy inside), CMC or Classroom Maska Chicken (their signature dish and rightly so- it had juicy chicken on the bone, marinated in a flavorful herby sauce and lots of butter), Creamy Chicken Tikka (which had juicy chicken chunks marinated in cheese and hung curd and cooked on charcoal), Tandoori Chicken Tikka, Amritsari Fried Fish, and Mutton Seekh Kebab.
We then tried their Summer Salad which had rocket and lettuce, with juliennes of mango, bell peppers, and cucumber, tossed in a vinaigrette made with olive oil, lemon juice, and mango pulp, topped with sesame seeds, and coriander. The salad was light and refreshing.
For main course, we went with a Spaghetti in Pesto Sauce, which was served with garlic bread. The pasta was cooked al dente, and the pesto sauce was quite flavorful, topped with grated parmesan, which added that little finishing touch.
We also had their creamy, thick and buttery Dal Makhani with a tandoori roti.
We rounded off the meal with Haji Ali Fruit Cream, which had fruits like apples and melons in a fluffy and creamy sauce.
Overall, The Classroom served nice, freshly brewed beer, really tasty food, and provides great service, making it a must visit place is Sector 29.
