Review: Nazeems, Sector 18, NOIDA

[Rating:2.5/5]

We were shopping yesterday and I saw this place that I’d never visited – Nazeems. Thinking I’d pop in for a quick snack, I headed over. Located in a corner of sector 18, NOIDA, Nazeems claims to have been serving the public since Adam. Inside, it has a college canteen kind of decor and the staff is total devoid of any kind of welcome or smile. Each face you see is dour and has a staid, fixed expression for some reason.

I ordered a mutton roll, which took nearly 20 minutes to reach me. Thinking it would be like the pictures adorning the interiors, I patiently waited. What finally reached me was a mutton seekh kebab and some sliced onion, wrapped in a rumali roti. It was served with the ubiquitous green chutney and a bowl of chopped onions. Since the rumali roti is quite large, there was much more roti than kebab. The taste wasn’t anything to write home about.

The Mutton Nihari wasn’t available and so were a number of other items on the menu. I wonder why people stuff their menus with items, only to have to refuse customers all day.

Anyway, I would advise any weary, thirsty or hungry shopper to totally avoid the place as it won’t do anything for your weariness, thirst or hunger.
