“Tasty food at decent rates!”

This outlet has recently come up opposite Croma, Aundh (Appears expansion of a place similar to a Dhaba called Pathik which is popular for food in Pimpri industrial belt).

A few tables opposite to the shop. Majority of the shop is Kitchen and the front portion is counter. Average ambiance!

Limited menu with sections meal, Beverages, Kebabs, Curries, Biryani, Rice, Bread etc.

We tried (take away)-

Dal Tadka (120) – Preparation of tuar (tur) and mung topped up with layer of Tadaka containing cumin seeds, whole red chilies and garlic. Garnished with coriander tasted very nice!

Chapatis (15) – were warm, thin and tender!
Chicken Dum Biryani (220) – Three layered serving with masala at the bottom, chicken pieces and rice in the middle and white rice on the top. Two big pieces of chicken (a leg piece and a wing) were tender, juicy and tasty. Biryani tasted very nice. Usage of fresh whole spices made the difference. Accompaniments were spicy brown gravy and kachumar raita; both went well with Biryani.
Service- Quick.

Pathik at Pimpri exists since many-many years and known for tasteful food.
Biryani portion size is good and apt for two people (if you are also opting for main veg and chapatti).
Chicken Handi is highly recommended. Handi is not very hot but decently spicy and tasteful.
If you are Dal buff; Dal Tadka is must try.
Peeped in to the kitchen and hygiene level was good.
