“Weekend Sunday Dinner: Bad”
Reviewed 10 July 2013

Got my new car and surprised my wife for a candle light dinner. Since we stay in ecity, I decided to value the extra time that I would get dining closure to home. so picked Svenska.

I am aware of no buffet, however we deciced to got their a-la-carte

the starters were burned and the fish side dish was smelling, the curd was at its best. One funny observation. The waiter came and asked if we would like to order any jiuce / fanta/coke etc. We said no. Surprisingly, he gave us complementry two fanta's.

more surprising, he gave this to every guest who was seated. If we had ordered, he would have charged us.

So, overall a very poor meal, though the mood was relaxing which we wanted.

A must NO-GO on a weekend to this place.

“Don't try to Test your Stomach's Resilience..!!”
Reviewed 4 March 2013

I havent stayed here, so i have nothing to mention about the property. But been there yesterday for lunch with my Friends. The whole Sunday got ruined by terrible Lunch & shady service by those people.!

Chettinad Biriyani we ordered was so spicy, which you can even have one spoon. Almost everything we ordered from right from Soup, Platter, Biriyani was so spicy & not eatable.!!

On top of everything, definitely this Restaurant doesn't deserve a single positive review for such food, service & totally incomparable cost..!!

Even if you are staying there, try to take your food somewhere else than accepting punishment yourself..!!

“Bad experience with Wallet parking”
Reviewed 15 January 2013

We had visited this place on 11-Jan-2013 for lunch. We had taken 2 cars as we were 10 members. One of them was a brand new Swift. This place does not have a parking space within it's premises. They said they have wallet parking and took the keys for parking the cars. We had lunch which at best average. There was very limited variety. The ambiance was so-so. After finishing lunch, the hotel guys brought the cars from the parking lot. The new car had a big scratch on the left bumper and the other car's bumper had a dent on the right side. When asked they said it was not their fault. But the car was a brand new one and there were no chances of a scratch existing before. So clearly they were lying.

“Restaurant - okay types, crowded.”
Reviewed 16 December 2012

Was at the restaurant of hotel Svenska for lunch with colleagues on a friday. This place is swarming with people and without booking we had to wait for nearly 40 minutes before we could get a table.

The restaurant is at a level below ground floor. So you are spared of all those annoying phone calls that you will otherwise get on your mobile :-) We chose the lunch buffet. Was interesting to be offered paav bhaaji & soups to begin with. But we got a taste of service levels right away :-) Took nearly 5 minutes of waiting before the counter was manned and some one served us paav bhaaji. And this waiting was involved in the whole deal we had at the restaurant till we left.

Starters were a kind of frugal affair with just two soups, the paav bhaaji, deep fried potatoes and small cutlets. And the main course was not really fancy either with rotis not to be seen at all. Chicken biriyani was the star performer. Tasted just right. What made the whole lunch borring was that half of the serving bowls were empty and waiting for a re-fill that either never came or came after a loooooooong wait. How ever, food tasted okay. Not great, not lousy. The dessert station was well stocked and what was offered was pretty good.

Word of advice: Please book your table before you venture into the restaurant on friday for lunch. And be prepared for 'not so great' service.

This review is about the restaurant at hotel Svenska. I did not stay at this hotel.

“Worst Restaurant”
Reviewed 18 January 2012

Hotel environment is excellent but the worst food we've ever tested in the five star hotels. There was no taste in any of the dishes. A few were very salty. The staff is cooperative but has no knowledge about their own process. The Five Star rating is not valid for the restaurant.
