While walking into Pra Pra Prank one would travel back to their cheerful college days. The ambience that oozes sophistication and luxury at the same time and the essence of a chic bar is what one requires at the end of the day with the food matching all expectations. The restaurant strives on the principle of perfection which is brilliantly exhibited through the hospitality.
The menu offers preparations with a twist from the drinks to the starters, main course and dessert that one cannot imagine before visiting Pra Pra Prank. Started by the brother duo – Inderjeet Banga and Jasmeet Banga, and menu curation and preparation by Chefs Harangad Singh and Kaustubh Haldipur, the restaurant deserves a standing ovation.
While walking through the vibrant windows, we could actually decipher the pictures and their meanings without much difficulty. The look and feel of the restaurant beautifully transport you to a quirky bar of Europe.
The sushi bar and the open-kitchen immediately grabbed our attention owing to the thoughtful location in the restaurant. The restaurant further opened into an exclusive bar with a few couch seats and a well-stocked beverage bar for the most sizzling cocktails and mocktails.
Moving on to the food, we were greeted with the drinks followed by the soups, starters, main course and desserts to end our meal on a sugar oozing note. The menu was a perfect amalgamation of Modern Indian and Modern Asian preparations with unusual flavours. The food is prepared, keeping in mind the comfort and palate of the customers which we can vouch for. The flavours were familiar and interesting at the same time.
Our beverages started with the Prohibition Pop Up, a blissful blend of American scotch with coffee and caramel popcorn. The idea behind this drink is that it takes you back to the time when the USA was struck with prohibition in the year 1920 and those who used to drink had to hide the glass with a newspaper.
Another drink tried by us was the Fragrance No. 9, a refreshing cocktail of fun and flavours. Gin, rose and basil in elderflower. For a wonderful presentation, the cocktail is also topped with the elderflower petals.
Among hot beverages, we tasted the Nepalese Chicken Broth, a soothing inspiration of the Tibetan thukpa that comes as clear chicken broth soup with dumplings and noodles.
To start with the food, the first thing that came to our table was the lovely summer Salad of Fruits & Greens in Thai Dressing that came mixed with romaine and iceberg lettuce, baby spinach, and summer seasonal fruits.
After the salad, we tried the Veg Rainbow Roll and Prawn two ways Roll, cooked in delectable flavours. Made with crunchy vegetables, pepper sauce, and topped with bell peppers and onion tomato salsa, this dish could actually compensate for the non-vegetarian sushi. The prawn roll had prawn tempura, torched prawn salsa, cucumber and spicy mayonnaise for that zesty flavour.
We also tried the Edamame & Shitake Kataifi Rolls which were crispy and crunchy deep fried kataifi pastries stuffed with mashed edamame and diced shitake mushrooms rolled in spinach leaf – a pure vegetarian’s delight.
The highlight of the day that we tried was the Indian Ocean Baked Lobster – a delicious South Indian spiced lobster baked in its own shell. The meat was tender and succulent just like how we expected it to be.
Among the main course, we tried the sumptuous Pork belly skewers with kalonji raw mango relish, lip-smacking Appam with mutton, comforting Japanese Curry Infused Lamb Nihari with Asian Bun and the palate-soothing Veg Khow Suey.
