On weekends there are also plenty of chances that the restaurant management will hold a live event show or something happening like that. If that is not the case every day then it is quite evident that other days you will definitely be accompanied with some good music along with your food and drink.
Let’s talk about the food for a while now. The joint serves Continental, North Indian, and Italian and finger foods. The best pick will definitely be their Kheema panipuri which comes with pandhra rassa and green peas in the potato fillings. The restaurant also does claim it as their speciality. Next, on straight to the kebab section, the famous Thecha kebab is a must try. The Marathi speciality spicy delicacy will make your taste buds dance surely. The same goes with Chicken Tikka Kebab which is truly as per their description “a mustard lover’s delight”.
Now for the main course, you can try their pizza and pasta but the smoked Cajun chicken burger will absolutely blow your mind. You can also try their Thai cuisines and Khao Suey. It will definitely not disappoint you in any sense. They have recently introduced some soups which should also be tasted as they have attracted many positive reviews.
Coming to the tipsy part of “The Tipsy Duckling”, in the bar section their craft beer and their cocktails are a must try. They also serve tap beer there. For the abstainers, the fugitive mocktail is a must try as it is perfectly balanced with few juices. But for the people who like to be on a little hard side, the liquid marijuana would be a perfect cocktail as it is vodka-based and is a little hard. The kamikaze shots and Whiskey based cocktails are good too. The Adios म द फ क cocktail has vodka, white rum, gin, tequila and blue curacao is very interesting too.
