“You will be spoilt of choices!” was my wife’s first reaction when she came back home visiting Global Fusion with her colleagues, a couple of weeks back, and now it was my turn. Located right on the Andheri-Ghatkopar road near Sakinaka, the restaurant is at walking distance from Marol Naka Metro station. The premises and restaurant have paid wallet parking service. Booking is recommended as the restaurant remains highly occupied most of the times, mainly by corporate staffs during weekday lunch hours.
Global Fusion is housed in a large area and has ample seating options including a couple of pseudo-separate areas for large groups. The ambiance is dimly lit. Lots of plants (artificial possibly), fish tanks, dark wooden interiors and textured wallpapers adds density to it.
Although what is being prepared is not easily visible, but the concept of live counters and transparent kitchen adds extra liveliness to the ambiance.
Service is satisfactory. Can’t say it was fast and there were a couple of mix-ups too, but given the high occupancy, this can be ignored.
Now coming to the primary objective, it is difficult if not impossible to count a number of items on the menu. 5-6 types of mock-tails, equal number of Sushi only in the veg. section and uncountable other starters including Baked Paneer, Crispy Corn, Seekh Kabab, a couple of Mushroom items and Garlic Breads to name a few. It will truly be pointless to count the number. If you like it then have it should be the mantra.
Barring Sushi, soups and a couple of starter items, for a rest you have to pick a chit and hand it over to a server at your table. A good mechanism to avoid a rush at the counters. This takes its due time but at least you can sit and have other items rather than waiting in queue holding a heavy plate.
In main course, there were Indian items along with a couple of noodles, rice, Thai Curry and pasta in veg. section.
On the contrary, they have staff serving the desserts on a tucked-inside-a-corner counter which keeps it quite crowded almost all the time. Here too, the selection is quite an effort starting from a large collection of Baskin-Robbins ice creams to cookies, jellies and cakes along with a few Indian verities.
In the end, it’s all about your appetite and the selection you make, which will make this experience low or high value for money. You may leave with your mind craving for more, but you will surely leave with your tummy heavier and pockets lighter!
