Wearing a ruffled railway-shed look, complete with the tin roof and the wooden structures, Charvee's Lake Treat would well have passed for artistic palatability, had not the waiters' nonchalance and self-abandon betrayed that it is just an upgraded dhaba
, not even on the right side of the lake.
The interiors - which are not so much of interiors as the restaurant is a wide-open affair overlooking the HUDA parking lot and the cricketing youngsters - have wooden chairs not suited for people over 40, and definitely not over 70kg. Lacking the Lake and the hygienic treatment, Charvee's Lake Treat perhaps banks upon the proximity of the Necklace Road
Grounds' exhibitions for generating its traffic.The Food
For starters, you can order Veg Manchuria or Gobi 65, and most likely you'll get the same dish with a difference in the sauces. Kadai Mushroom, being a little bland, can be supplemented with Channa Masala or Mutton Pasindha. While the menu boasts of an impressive Chinese cuisine, a mouthful of Schezwaan Noodles will confirm that the recipe is an authentic document by a North-Indian dhaba owner. So it's best to stick to good ol' palak-tamatar Indian preparations.The Verdict
While you are not required to leave a tip, you are required to keep your one good hand free to discourage the swarm of flies bent upon sharing your dinner. Not being pricey, Charvee's is a cool hangout for college goers and occasional sight-seers - until they realize that eating bad food is a sin, and eating it served rudely is a greater one, and so switch to more welcome pastures.
