My Take: About Thyme is one of the restaurants that has been on my radar for the longest time. I’ve read so many reviews about the place and had to give it a try. I took my wife there for her birthday, more than a year ago (tells you how late this post is 😦 ). I cannot honestly remember the exact meals we ordered, but I know it was some sort of chicken, served with rice and steak served with potato wedges, I think. The restaurant has an interesting ambiance, the area has a lot of trees, and a nice outdoor setting – best enjoyed on a hot day.

My Take: Hurlingham has some really nice food joints, one of them being, Under the Radar. Yes, it doesn’t sound like your conventional restaurant name… going ‘Under the radar’ sounds like one is about to get into cloak and dagger mode, but I personally like the name. I like the location too, lots of trees and greenery around. They’ve got gazebos where you can have your meal from, I have to say, the ambience is pretty sweet. I liked their service, the waiters are friendly and pretty fast with the orders and once the food gets to the table, its not disappointing. We had the mixed grill (lamb chop, chicken, steak, sausage and fries), all the meats were well done, soft, juicy and tasty too :-P.

My Take: The garden environment is great! The pepper steak was good, though the pepper was rather too mild for me, the chicken was soft and tasty and the fries, well…they were fries. The service wasn’t the best, the waiter got my order wrong and wasn’t too apologetic about it either, IMHO they could do with more professional service
