In a dark alleyway off Link Road rests this haunt that has taken the area over storm. TLD is by far the best of its kind in the area. No other place in the Andheri/Oshiwara area can even come close to the service, the atmosphere, the music and the entertainment quotient this place offers. I've been here a few times, all at different time points since it opened several years ago, and not once have I been left disappointed and not once have I felt it degraded.
So basically, you enter through a little door. If it's a weekend, the place is packed. But what I like is that there is a lot of place in the outside area especially, where there are communal tables where you stand and can order. Because of this, they never turn down guests. You can get in, order, drink, nibble, all the while on a lookout for a table. Be friendly to the staff, and you find a table faster. The outter portion is nice decorated with plants, artsy hangings and lamps, with colorful murals and lighting. The music outside is not too loud, therefore conversation sans yelling is a thing to look forward to. Inside, it's more of a clubby feel. Weekends have loud music and people dancing. Otherwise, weeknights it's pretty much like outside.
The bartenders are pretty well trained. Their cocktails are not watered down and actually taste delicious with all the generous portions of alcohol. The last time I went there a few weeks ago, the white sangria pitcher we had was probably one of the best I've had (and I don't actually like white sangria). Food is also very well made. Funghi Ripieni (stuffed mushrooms) was the best thing on the menu that I tasted so far. Their calamari was also really good (not the best though-seasoning was slightly more than what I like). I've had the Italian fare in the past (veg and meat) and I've never been disappointed. Their Greek nachos and Tequila chicken was also exceptional. Basically, you should just go with what you think you may like and they will deliver to perfection. And some of the staff are very good and friendly.
So yeah, good going Andheri, there's a Bar that has stood the test of time and will always do so.
