In the lanes of Shapur Jat there’s a cozy place called Ivy & Bean, a Modern Australian Restaurant. The moment you enter the restaurant you are transported to some place else. White walls, planters, huge collection of books and outdoor seating make the place homelike. The white furniture is complimented with a dash of color through the lamps. The lighting although minimalistic, is quite pretty.

Their menu is nice and diverse, mostly concentrating on Modern Australian Food. They also have Vietnamese food so you get variety to choose from.

The staff is very warm, well informed and friendly. Vinod, the service guy was not only friendly but knew his job very well. I went ahead with whatever he recommended me and the food turned out to be really tasty.

I went there for brunch and ordered for:

  • Tiramisu Shake

Normally I wouldn’t order Tiramisu shake because I am not sure that people always get it right. But to my surprise this was just too good. The flavors were rightly balanced and thankfully it just didn’t just taste of coffee. I will go back to the restaurant just to have this shake. Its not your regular thick shake but its not one to miss.

Cheesy Scrambled egg with sausages was the next thing that arrived on our table. The scrambled eggs tasted yummy. It was a good mix of cheese and eggs, seasoned with spices (like pepper) in a subtle way. It was served with Grilled Tomato and Toasted Bread. The only let down was that they served just one sausage. I feel it should at least be two in number.

When I ordered Penne with Sundried Tomato in pesto creamy sauce, I assumed that the sauce would have pesto cream in it. But its actually creamy pasta that is served with sundered tomatoes, veggies and Pesto leaf. It was extremely considerate of Radhika Khandelwal (Chef & Owner) to come to the table and clear my confusion. Nevertheless, the pasta was delectable. The freshness of ingredients was intact and the pasta wasn’t overcooked. The sauce wasn’t too creamy or heavy. Clearly one of the best pasta I’ve had in the recent times.

The Pickled Chicken Burger, served with fries and fresh salad, tasted like no other. The BBQ Sauce was superbly complimented by pate. Pate is basically a mixture of minced ground meat. It can be served cold or hot. Usually Pate is served when it’s cold (that’s when its oozes the most flavor) and is seasoned with alcohol. If you love Burgers, I will certainly recommend you try this one.

The bill came up to Rs 1071 inclusive of all taxes. In all, I felt the place has a pleasant vibe and is priced quite reasonably.

Radhika, has worked in Australia for 10 years before coming up with Ivy & Bean. She and her husband are the chefs here. It was evident that they’ve put up this place with a lot of love and care.
