This’s a ten year old restaurant hidden in a corner of a busy road in Pune serving brilliant authentic Maratha food. I had a chicken thali which consisted of a Maratha style spicy chicken curry, chicken biryani, egg curry, raita and a couple of chappatis. They also serve a mutton (sheep) thali, fish curry and fried fish and other a la carte dishes. The thali’s priced at Rs.170.
The food’s very tasty but be prepared for spicy as most Maratha food is. You can ask for less spicy, but the fun of this cuisine is in wiping your tears while savouring the food. I must also add that the biryani served in the thali was decent, but not extraordinary. But acts as a good accompaniment to the spicy curries.
Timings – 12 noon to 10 pm.
Address – It’s in a lane next to Alpana talkies in Pune.
Pricing – The mutton thali at Aveez restaurant is priced at Rs.170, which’s not cheap cheap. But considering that mutton (sheep) is used and not goat. The pricing is decent considering the overall quality of the meal. They also have an a la carte menu and serve a variety of fish dishes.
