New in Lucknow: The joys of a buffet just got bigger with The Big Grill!

What makes The Big Grill different, is its idea of creating a distinct experience for each of its patrons.

If you want to indulge in a pompous food affair and experience a vibrant culinary extravaganza, it is time to turn your heads towards The Big Grill in Lucknow. Seated on the second floor at Phoenix Palassio Mall, this barbeque-buffet restaurant was launched recently and within a short span, it has won plenty of hearts and bellies over! With a menu that explores the nuances of the choicest cuisines, The Big Grill is rapidly climbing up the popularity chart among the foodies in town.

It's rich, It's ritz, It's BIG

As the name suggests, The Big Grill is unlike any buffet restaurant in town; be it the space, the experience or the range of food options available here, it is all BIG like no other! The restaurant is serving the best of ambience, with a side of plush seating and a heavy garnish of premium to fix you a carefully crafted meal.

With alternating blue, tan and wooden furniture, the restaurant dons a stylish look and is ever-radiant in its soft golden glow of lights. An LED signature on its back wall, witty wall hangings and ceiling decorations, only add panache to its fine-dine experience. With mellow music to accompany you, The Big Grill sets the tone to a relaxing vibe, where you can gorge on a scrumptious banquet in the company of your loved ones!

Food for thought!

What makes The Big Grill different, is its idea of creating a distinct experience for each and every one. Playing with the concept of space and lighting, each food variety here has been stationed at different counters, with live stations for chaat, tawa grills and even drinks.

This categorically distributes attention across the outlet, instead of cluttering all food items on the buffet table. So while your appetisers leisurely cook over the grills at your dinner table, you can skip away to different counters and get your food, just the way you like it!

A wide banquet to satiate your appetite

With an elaborate menu of the buffet table, guests here have the chance to dwell into the refined flavours of Awadhi cuisine, which include the aromatic biryanis, succulent kebabs and the imperial finesse of kormas, among others. The place also serves a special Yakhni Mutton Dum Biryani, that blends in a smooth yoghurt base with the richness of a saffron-based mutton broth. And that's not all! The food selections go beyond the rustic taste to include the goodness of thin-crust pizzas, oriental noodle choices and other delicacies, to add variety to your palate.

Leaving the best for the last, let's talk about the deserts here! There is no way that you can possible get done with your meal at The Big Grill without a slice (or even two, who's counting anyway) of its sweet treats. There is Anjeer Mango Phirnee, Mocha Fudge Pie, Gulab Jamuns, Pineapple Crumble Mousse, Shahi Tukda With Rabri- trust us we can go on and on, for the list of their deserts is unending! A visit here is nothing short of experiencing a merry food bonanza and if you're all-in for a food coma and a happy muffin top, this is your place.
