    ChickenA�huntA�Hot wings and A�coordinated decor set the tone at Ferraree

    When a hotel called Benzz Park renovates its restaurant and changes the name from Porsche to Ferraree, you start wondering if it might not be a coincidence. And sure enough, the vice-president of the newly-renovated hotel, Deepak Ravikumar, is a bike racer, and the chairman, AC Shanmugam, is a connoisseur of luxury cars. It is their interests which has also spawned the names of the hotela��s banquet halls a�� Rolls Royce, Rover and Volvo a�� and the bar, Lexus.

    Colour match

    A sizeable part of the diners are expatriates on our visit, and sous chef V Gopinath says this is usually the case. The restaurant keeps up with its eponymous inspiration with a colour code. The reds and yellows of the table linen match the dominant colours in luxury sports car Ferraria��s logo. The menu remains largely unchanged and the buffet doesna��t stick to a theme a�� unless variety is the theme, as Malaysian noodles, mutton biriyani, pasta and Chinese gravy find place alongside the ever-present paneer dish. Ditto for dessert, as
    soufflA�s and cakes sit beside
    rasmalai and gulab jamun.
    The signature dish is the Hot Chilli Ferraree Wings, which is also executive sous chef Shiv Ganeshana��s personal favourite. Meant to be extremely spicy, it doesna��t make us break into a sweat as promised. The restaurant can seat 60 people.
