Another gem from Azure Hospitality, in the vicinity Hi Tech comes Sly Tech. Located in the same building of Mamagoto and Dhaba, Kondapur, this place has a vibrant and refreshing ambience giving you a feel of a place just around the street. People who generally isn’t interested in dance, will also shake their legs to their lovely tunes. They also have Stand Up Comedy Night, Karaoke Nights, Bar@99 Nights which run on different days across the week. What’s more in the store, you ask ? Oh they do have some lovely games/comic books to make your time there more special, some of them being Table Tennis, Jhinga, Ludo, Snake and Ladders. Looks like some of these games brings back our childhood memories :). I literally fell in love with this place so much that I visited this place twice in 1 week.
Price Factor: Most of the starters are priced under 300 with few exceptions in sliders and sea food which could go up additional 50 to 100 bucks. Cocktails and drinks are also priced very economically ranging from 99 to 499, and the best part is that best of the drinks are available within 199 :).
This food session was by invitation of the restaurant and was on the house. Below review is true to taste and honest in the interest of fellow foodies and restaurant.
This place mainly serves finger food (starters) and less of mains. Portion size is not huge for the starters that you order.
Fish Pointing Fingers : Undoubtedly, one of the best dishes I had here. Battered fish fingers which are golden fried were melting in the mouth faster than anything. Dip it in green chilli mayo and enhance the taste more ❤ . Don’t remember how many times this dish was repeated 😛 .
Paaji’s Sheekh Kebab: In yester days, I was aware of only 1 starter in Mutton and that was Sheekh Kebab. This classic dish is served with mini paratha which was one of the best I had, and choorma papad lives up to its name.
Dilli 6 Chicken Tikka : Another classic , served with delicious paratha, was lovely. Chicken was soft and juicy.
Out of the Box Dahi Kebab : The only dish among veg that I had, had generous stuffing of grated paneer, cheese and a paste of hung curd,red chilli flakes, and other spices. Loved it.
So Fried fish , otherwise called as Amristari Fish is a popular dish among Indian cuisine prepared with fresh marinated fish. Main ingredient of this dish for me is ajwain which fell short in it. Had it been mixed in equal proportions with other spices, this could have been one of the best dishes.
Classic Chilli Chicken a dish that we find in every other corner of street food, was good and SF BBQ Chicken Wings was another beauty which was tangy and luscious.
Chicken Biryani Balls is another special and an innovation which is crispy outside and biryani inside 😉 . Hyderabadi’s, pls note that its not Dum Biryani 🙂 . Though it’s not one of those which was a show stealer, it surely was lovely, in my second visit 🙂
Boss-Pulled Mutton Tacos , is one of those dishes that you love if you are a fan of soft shell tacos. Mutton raan put in tacos topped with mint and sour cream was delicious.
Dharmasala Chicken Momos stuffed with minced chicken was made to perfection. Loved it with the dip that was provided
Techie Chicken Quick Fix is a mini dish to replicate mains which has black pepper loaded chettinad chicken and served with baby parathas. Loved the gravy.
So Fried Chicken Slider is a mini burger which has famous louisiana sauced fried chicken topped with cheese was one delicious slider I had.
Beijing rotation Shrimp is another best dish of my visits. Toast which has minced shrimp stuffed in it and coated with sesame has a crunchy and juicy feel and sumptuous. Even one who doesn’t love shrimps, would love this dish. Quantity of minced shrimp in toast could be increased and this would definitely elevate the taste.
Cocktails were lovely in their own style. Esp, Lychee Rose Martini, blend of vodka with litchi juice was killer.
They only have a single offering in Desserts which they call as Sly Sundae, which offers alcohol soaked brownie topped with vanilla ice cream and choco sauce. Not a killer, but tastes good. Had the brownie was soft, this could have been amazing.
Service : Even in that loud music, stewards are very attentive by checking on us periodically and helping with each and every dish , if you are stuck in ordering. Knowledgeable with dishes and serving always with a smile, they were true Rock Stars. Bala has done a great job in providing a wonderful service with his team. Kudos to you guys!
Verdict: One of the GO-TO places to unwind yourselves after an hectic or a lazy day. Priced economically and with lovely ambience, games and when clubbed with wonderful offers they provide periodically just shows that why do you have to return to this place again and again 🙂
