We went here right after it opened for business. They didn't seem quite ready for business at the time.
The pizza was good, what you would expect at Papa John's. The soups are quite poor in quality, seem like they come straight out of the instant soup cans. Salads are good.
Service left a lot to be desired. They seemed to forget parts of our order. The Papa John's near Ruby Hall was a much better experience overall.

Tip: Don't forget to order the garlic breadsticks. Awesome stuff!
Their kid's meal includes a "Happy Face Pizza" which has "Pepperoni eyes". We were upset that they didn't inform us while ordering. It turned out that it was chicken pepperoni after all!


Magnolia Restaurant - Aundh

Address: New DP Road, Aundh Pune 411007

Phone:020 400 58282

Food Type: Veg + Non-Veg - Chinese, Thai

Three Course Dinner for two: Rs. 500 - 550

They serve a mix of Chinese and Thai food. I can't really say either the chinese or the thai food is authentic. It is quite tasty though. The service is good. If the weather is good I would surely recommend the outdoor seating. The indoor seating is somewhat crowded.
This restaurant is really hard to locate, so refer to the google map above.

Thai Chicken Chilli Basil was good. If you are in a mood to try something different (and non-spicy) go for Crispy Chicken Chilly Honey for starters.

Cafe Coffee day, Baner Road


Phone: 64006574
Kalaanand appartment
Shop #1,2 & 3
Kapil Malhar, Baner road
Pune - 411045

Review: One of the better managed and bigger CCD's. They do deliver in the area, but sometimes refuse to deliver as they are understaffed. You can always order on the phone and pick up.


Makkhan Maar Ke - Baner Road

Address: Ground Floor Rituraj Apartments, Below Godrej Lifespace, Near Mauli Gardens, Baner.

Phone:98234 43289

Food Type: Veg + Non-Veg Punjabi / North Indian
Home Delivery Avaialble.

Three Course Dinner for two: Rs. 550 - 600

Good, authentic Punjabi food has finally arrived in Baner. Although the exterior of the restaurant doesn't make a great impression on a passer by, the interior is equally well done. I would surely call it a "Familly Restaurant". The food is very good. It's almost as good as Tareef in Aundh.Tareef's preparation is a bit better, but for residents of Baner, this is surely a very good alternative. Nice and clean inside, it is surely going to be quite popular in Baner.

Jehangiri Murgh Shorba, Tandoor/Kebabs in general. Murgh Lahori was awesome!

Tareef, Aundh (Formerly known as Kareems)

This is right next to Ozone on ITI road.
Address/Phone number;


This restaurant used to be Kareem's and now its owned by Sanjyeh (who was the franchise owner). The food is much better than when it was Kareems. The ambience is good, a little over the top when it comes to the decor. The seating area is quite small, one might call it cozy. :) You almost feel like you are sitting in a cave. The kitchen has a glass window and you can see the tandoor and the kebabs grilling.

The food is typical Punjabi. They have heavy copper plates and glasses. Not sure if I like them or not :). I loved the kebab platter (enough for 4 adults). Small selection of soups. I would pass the soups as it is nothing spectacular. As for the entree, we have tasted almost all the chicken curries and loved all. The garlic nan is awesome. A little fatty ;), almost like eating garlic bread.. The Kheema naan can be skipped. The stuffing was too dry and plain. Neeraj tried some Raan curry when he went on his own and said it was different and very well made.

The veg curries were also decent. The portions are medium sized. The paan offered along with your bill is such a thoughtful gesture. It comes as a very pleasant surprise. :) . I think some part of the charm of the restaurant also lies in the owner who takes time to talk to each guest.

A typical meal for two would cost 450-500 rs.
Overall a good experience with good food!
