Harry’s Bar started at Boat Quay in Singapore in 1992.  It is a popular hang out joint there due to its unpretentious ambience that makes you feel comfortable and at home, a place for friends and colleagues to unwind, relax and recharge.

Harry’s Bar at Saket tries to capture the spirit of the mother ship in Singapore. The first noticeable part here is the pricing of the menu. While the décor is more or less typical of a bar, what easily looks like the USP here is the reasonable pricing, making this place tailor-made for the younger generation. With a new menu worked in association with TV chef Vicky Rattnani, now there is a lot of interesting food to be had too.

Corporate Chef Mohit Nautiyal is at hand to take me through the new additions. I start my tasting with one of my favourite starters, the cold Vietnamese spring rolls (₹229). However the rice paper has been soaked in water for too long, and the roll has too much stuffing, leading to a big mess in my hands.

Spicy chicken satay (₹269) is a spiced up version of the popular Indonesian street food. Here the satays are served in a glass with the peanut sauce filling the base of the glass, making dipping rather easy.

Marinated olives and feta in a jar (₹249) is a delightful starter with the addition of sundried tomatoes and garlic, but the feta in it fails to impress.

In the mains, Moroccan spiced cottage cheese (₹299) is essentially a competent paneer tikka.

Braised pork riblets (₹489) are a bit too fatty and heavy for my liking. Fisherman's Basket (₹289) with batter fried calamari and shrimp is not remarkable, 

But Buffalo chicken winglets (₹289) are remarkable. In fact after ages I discover the real thing here. The wings are plump, rightly spicy and the blue cheese sauce is creamy with the wonderful punch of good blue cheese. I would like to come back here for more wings for sure. 

The newly introduced food at Harry’s Bar has some hits and some misses. Since the menu is recently introduced, I am sure fine tuning will happen. But there is enough to come back to, not to forget the pleasant Singapore Sling!
