My dad had picked up the menu couple of weeks ago and stuck it on the refrigerator. When I asked dad, he mentioned that it is a hop skip and a jump away. Browsing through the prices, my jaw dropped to have seen a crostini priced at Rs. 69! Either they are here to stay or each piece is priced at that. After a pleasant walk, we entered Veeks and Thomas. The dining area was neat and they had some brilliant Jazz and Blues playing. Well, our mood was set. They have a good selection of dishes in the appetizers and main course. For soup we tried one of each; the french onion and the tomato basil soup. They are priced at Rs. 30 each. I preferred the french onion to the basil but P and Ed loved the latter. Amongst the appetizers, I we recommend the bruschettas, stuffed tomatoes and crostinis. They taste brilliant as a vegetarian dish too with the sundried tomato toppings. For the main course, I went safe with the Chicken Lasagne while P ordered a Portuguese Chicken and Ed went with a Chicken Stroganoff and leaving us quite impressed and satisfied. They serve your dishes in beetle nut husk plates (bio degradable) and water from a tall jar with mint leaves in it, giving it the perfect tinge for summers. For desserts we tried the caramel custard but were a little disappointed with its grainy texture. But make sure you grab a bite of the brownie. It was a perfect brownie but whatever that gooey little piece was, it perfectly melts in your mouth. In all, yes we do recommend this place for a good lazy lunch with friends where the numbers of appetizers keep increasing with the prolonged hours of chatting. It certainly is not heavy on the pocket for a guilt free leisure meal.
