The Scene
A view in the late night of the lights of the Tank Bund road glimmering in the waters of the Hussain Sagar in all the rainbow colors can be very appealing indeed (unless, for some reason, you are in the waters and are trying hard to get out). 100 Degrees of Ohri is presented as a waterfront restaurant overlooking this sight, but there are about 8 tables that offer you this ringside view out of a total of about 25, and on a weekend, there's a 45-minute wait, as the dispassionate lady at the reception informs you, er, dispassionately.

The fairly large sizzler and conti joint has most of its floor space on the other side of this view, and while Ohri being Ohri lends character to this part as well with muted lighting, a dome-shaped low cobblestone ceiling and a rather unsavory narrow strip of water in the middle, it's not what you came hoping for - a lakeside dinner. The place is also too crowded for any kind of romantic outing that the setting might inspire, especially on weekends. Hopefully the birthday you want to celebrate is Monday to Friday, business hours.

The Food
The tagline is "sizzlers and more...", and they don't disappoint. There are over 30 sizzlers on the menu, and you can make your own, too (with choice of 2 accompaniments, 1 sauce and 1 bread). A sizzler feeds one, and costs Rs. 200 - Rs. 275 (seafood can go upto Rs. 500). There's BBQ Veg Sizzler, Mushroom Delight, Paneer Shaslik Sizzler, Lamb Shaslik Sizzler, Grilled Pomfret Sizzler and Shanghai Chicken Sizzler in a wide variety.

100 Degrees is not just about sizzlers, though. There are standard soups and salads (Rs. 80 - Rs. 130), a dozen appetizers (Rs. 95 - Rs. 225), Indian platters (6 veg and 6 non-veg, that come with a kebab-of-the-day, Dal Makhani, salad, papad and choice of Indian breads, and cost Rs. 225 - Rs. 295), international platters (4 veg and 6 non-veg, Rs. 200 - Rs. 245, more for seafood), pasta (6 varieties for Rs. 195 - Rs. 275), 14 pizzas (Rs. 195 - Rs. 300) and a dozen desserts (mostly continental stuff, Rs. 55 - Rs. 105).

While the food tastes pretty much the way it should, it's also, as you can see, expensive - a meal for two adults can crank out a bill of Rs. 600 - Rs. 800 easily, and if you check too many things from the super-elaborate drinks menu, too, you hopefully are not already drunk.

The Verdict
100 Degrees could have been a proper romantic dinner outing, but unlike a Zafraan Laguna, puts too many other people within earshot. Hopefully, like we said, the birthday is Monday to Friday, business hours.

i used to like this place but agreeing with Prasanna below, i should say that the service is bad. first of all a waiter who doesnt understand english abruptly starts serving us someone else's order without announcing the dish or anything (it was chicken and we were e veg table!). then, while we're still in the middle of our starters, they get the sizzlers, and don't even bother that we're still eating..they hang around as if we must finish our starter, remove the plates and allow the waiter to place the main course on our table.

the body language of the head waiter sucks. he acts as though he's doing us a favour and feeding us for free. in the end he went on the offensive when we rated service as low on his own customer feedback form.

Pros: great food
Cons: service

There is no place like 100 degrees in the twin cities. The service staff doesnt speak or understand English or any language spoken by you. The manager is just as incoherent and ignorant. You start wondering if you have turned invisible upon entering the restaurant as no one seems to notice you and it is ages before you can successfully have a glass of water on your table. The plates and the cutlery seem to have last been cleaned in the Nizam's era. You are famished by the time your order is taken and almost dead by the time your food is served which in my case was 'never'. After an hour's wait you get into a high pitched altercation with the manager who happens to have an IQ of a lab rat and has no idea why you are so enraged. You eventually end up storming out of the restaurant in a blind rage and set out in search of someone who can save you from starvation at that unearthly hour. Trust me; an irani cafe is much better than this dump.

Pros: none that I could see
Cons: everything

100 Degrees comes across as another winner from Ohri's like the Ohri's Jiva and Banjara. The quality of food ois equivalent to home made food and is value for money.

Pros: Food Quality, Ambience, Service
Cons: Cost
