Barely a few months old, Dice and Dine on JNC Road, already attracts regulars from the neighbourhood. Owner Arun Prabhu, an IIM-B graduate from Chennai, directs us to a table in a corner of the restaurant. The concept in simple. Good food combines with fun games, making it an ideal spot for an eventful outing. “The idea is to make people connect with each other instead of engaging with their phones, barely making conversation with their dining partners,” smiles Prabhu.
Among the 250 games, there are classics like Uno, Pictionary, Taboo, Jenga, Game of Life and Monopoly, apart from more unusual strategy games like Settlers of Catan, Dixit, and Ticket To Ride and Anomia and Cards Against Humanity, uproariously funny party games.
The menu is simple, offering fuss free, delicious food, perfect for those who’ve worked up an appetite after all the rivalry. The beverage list is exhaustive with everything from milkshakes, coffees, teas, slushies, fresh juices and fizzy drinks. We started with Roasted Chicken Wings and Nachos. The Nachos were fresh and crisp, sprinkled with fine chopped onions, tomato and coriander with a small helping of sour cream — a perfect blend of clean flavours. The wings with the tangy barbecue sauce worked well with the char on the meat, which was perfectly cooked. Then came the thin crust margherita pizza. The sauce and cheese that made up the topping, tasted just right, showing great restraint on the part of the chef. For mains, we sampled the Spicy Thai Chicken Drumsticks with Bell Pepper Rice. Don’t harp on authenticity as the dish is packed with flavour, and we enjoyed every bit of it. We recommend you end your meal with the Crispy Nutella Bite and German Black Forest Cake.
