Prem's is a restaurant that needs no introduction if you've been living in Pune for a while. This restaurant has been around since the mid 80s and I've been going there for almost a decade so its about time I told you why it is one of the best multi cuisine restaurants in the city. Prems has an extensive menu that offers a large variety of Indian, Chinese and Continental food. They also have a great breakfast menu along with many healthy juices and detox shots. For the ones who like their alcohol, they have a well stocked bar too. Besides its open air relaxed ambience and great food and drinks, another amazing thing about Prems is that it is pet friendly! Thanks to that, my mom and I were able to enjoy a meal there along with my dog after a trip to the vet.
Thanks to the fact that I stayed in Hyderabad for a few years before I moved to Pune, I've always had a huge weakness for Chicken 65 so I just had to order it. This spicy deep fried dish consists of chunks of chicken with curry leaves and green chillies and is mouthwateringly good!
I have been craving for a nice Greek salad for a long time now but unfortunately, even though this one was really good, it wasn't very authentic. However, since it was a hot summer evening, it was light and refereshing.
Mom's got a huge affinity for fish so we shared a Tandoori Pomfret which is a delicacy of skewered marinated pomfret cooked in a clay oven over charcoal. It was served with a spicy kachumber salad and we wolfed it down in no time. Prem's is really good with their Indian cuisine and I've tried many of their appetizers and main course dishes from this section of the meny and they've always been fantastic.
Moving on to main course, I succumbed to my weakness for Italian food and ordered a Lamb Lasagna. The chefs here whip up some mean pasta dishes so its hard to choose a favorite. However, their Lasagna remains one of my standard orders because it is just so good! It has the perfect blend of cheese, herbs and a slightly sweet tomato sauce that I can't get enough of.
Also worth mentioning is another variation of this dish on the menu called the Prem's Special Meat Overload which consists of alternate layers of pasta sheets, stuffed with cheese, chicken juliennes, lamb, chicken sausages and ham topped with a special sauce, baked and served with garlic bread. I've had it a couple of times too and it is heaven for meat lovers like me. An indulgent and satisfying meal for sure. The sizzlers here are really good too! Here's what the Lamb Lasanga looks like once its deconstructed!
Mom had a craving for Chinese food so she went for the Chicken Pan Fried Noodles which is a cantonese style preparation with white sauce. Once again, I've had this many times for many years so I can vouch for how delicious it is.
You can just imagine how stuffed we were in the end of this delicious meal. As you can see, we tried different dishes from different types of cuisines and all of them were really great so if no matter what kind of cusine you're in the mood for, it is a fantastic option for dining in Pune. Thanks to the extensive multi cuisine menu, there's something for everyone at Prem's and I totally recommend you to try this restaurant if you're in Pune.
