It's inspired by the Buddha Bar in Paris (a touristy rip-off that made waves with its music), but despite its lofty ambition, our own copycat doesn't come anywhere close to the original.
The name creates curiosity, though there's nothing to set it apart from the pubs that have sprouted on the Mall Mile. Order Harvey's Wallbanger and Neigbour's Envy - cocktails that are hard to botch up. And watch out for the theme nights: Wednesdays are for House; Fridays for Commercial; Saturdays for Hip-Hop (thank Buddha for it!); Sundays for Retro. The deejay is great at the turn-table.
Meal for Two: Rs 600
