There is one thing in common in Inderjeet Singh Banga’s three restaurant brands, apart from the fact that they are obviously successful. All three of them, Pirates of Grill, Prankster and now Pra Pra Prank, refuse to take themselves too seriously. While their food may not be gourmet, fun and tasty it almost always is.

Inderjeet had called me for a tasting session prior to the restaurant opening, but owing to my hectic travel schedule, it is only now that I have managed to take him on his invite. The interiors in the outer section is a trifle cramped, but the enclosed, hidden bar section is quite cozy inside. This being lunch time, the restaurant is pretty full.

I start the tasting session with one of their mocktails, Fresh Beetroot Mary (Rs 295) which is a twist on Virgin Mary with beetroot replacing tomato. The drink is refreshing and tasty. Nepalese Chicken Broth (Rs 245) is next with lightly sesame flavoured chicken broth, and some dumplings and noodles inside. The soup is comforting, and I would imagine, a great hangover cure.


Fruits and greens salad with Thai dressing (Rs 345) is a mix of lettuce, spinach, beetel leaf, and makes for a nice summer starter. Hip Hopper with lamb (Rs 345) is essentially crisped appam with well-cooked mutton, and made proficiently.


Veg Rainbow Sushi Roll (Rs 495) with veggies and colourful bell peppers is not really sushi but it looks pretty and tastes pleasant. I love the pepper punch in the Stir Fried Udon Noodles with black pepper (Rs 465).


Indian Ocean Baked Lobster (Rs 1085) with south Indian spices – a dish I have been looking forward to tasting – disappoints. Lobster has a natural delicate taste of the sea which gets overpowered by the spices used. The dish would have been perfect as it is – with minimal seasoning. Chilean Sea Bass with ginger green chilly sauce (Rs 985) is cooked proficiently, to retain its velvety texture.


Okonomiyaki with rock shrimp (Rs 345) is a Japanese pancakes filled with prawn tempura is a dish I would strongly recommend. The interplay of textures between spongy pancake, crisp tempura and succulent prawn is just perfect. Tomato Truffle Chicken (Rs 545) with sundried tomato naan is an interesting take on butter chicken. On the positive side, it is a much cleaner version of butter chicken with muted spices, but the synthetic taste of truffle oil does tend to jar a bit.


I end the meal with Ferrero Rocher a la Pra Pra Prank (Rs 325) which is well, a giant version of the legendary Italian chocolate and hazelnut confectionery.

A meal at Pra Pra Prank promises to be a fun affair. I will be back for my fix of Chilean Seabass and Okonomiyaki!
