A view to relish

IMAGINE A good meal, accompanied by the view of pouring rain outside. If this beautiful combination lures you, check out Limelight at the Royal Orchid Park Plaza. The view of the KGA golf course and aeroplanes flying by are special attractions here. With the interiors done up in contemporary taste, the place offers you Indian, international, and Oriental cuisine.
At Limelight, you can opt to sit either indoors, on the porch, or on the lush green lawn. Though the food is not really exotic or different, one does enjoy the overall experience at the restaurant. I would recommend the buffet (lunch at Rs. 195 and dinner at Rs. 295) if you want to take a bite of all the dishes on the a la carte menu.
Here, non-vegetarians have a larger variety to choose from, both in North Indian and South Indian styles. Some of the dishes you can relish are prawn Allepey, matka chicken, chicken Chettinad, and mutton saagwala in Punjabi style. Indian vegetarian fare is limited with a couple of paneer and vegetable dishes, besides a katti roll.
The international selection is more interesting for vegetarians, with crepes, calzoni, and farfelle being served, besides the cottage cheese stake.
The buffet also offers other bakes and au gratins that are not available on the menu. Oriental options of Thai curries (red, green, and yellow) are available as well as the hot garlic sauce preparations in vegetarian and non-vegetarian options.
The Limelight Grill is open between 7.30 p.m. and 11 p.m. on all days, and tandoor preparations are a good bet here.
There are kebab platters for vegetarians (at Rs. 350) and non-vegetarians (at Rs. 550), along with a range of delicacies from the tandoor. While most of the kebabs are the regular ones, you could try the mushroom and cheese sheek or the raw banana kebabs in vegetarian section, while the non-vegetarians could opt for fish tikka or mutton chops.
Limelight also serves sandwiches (try the cheese grilled ones) and burgers (the twin vegetable burger with different patties in between is good). For desserts, there are delicacies such as soufflés, cheesecakes in various flavours, chocolate mud pie, and so on, besides the Indian desserts. You can also try the coffees laced with cherry liquor, kahlua, or the Irish whisky, to name a few.
