The Bounty

Location: Viman Nagar; a few meters away from Gold Adlabs, Pune
Price Range: Rs 250-300 per head (drinks included)
Ambience: 7/10. Ventilation isn’t very good here. Expect lots of smoke and coughing.
Quality of food: 9/10

Now this is one place for a good sizzler! First heard about this place from a friend who kept referring to it as ‘Bunty’ which made me think it was a dhaba.
The service is good and quick.

Being a total beef fan I have tried the variety of steaks available on their menu. Sadly all of em turned out to be tough and chewy. They taste good but give you a complete jaw workout on the way down.
The Chicken Sausage special is very good both in quantity and quality so you might wanna try it out.All the sizzlers are served with generous amounts of vegetables and potatoes (fried/mashed).

Nothing compares to the Chicken Cordon Bleu! It’s a crisp chicken fillet with a layer of melted Cordon Blue cheese in the middle. This according to me is the baap of all things sizzling. I haven’t come across a sizzler this good in all my years of eating solid food. It beats anything that the other sizzler joints in Pune can dish out. (The beef steak BBQ at Zamus comes a close second). This is probably the only reason I gave this place an 9/10 rating.

Like Zamus, Bounty too doesn’t serve Tabasco but a cheaper Indian version of the sause that doesn’t taste too good and is very mild.

Suggestion: If you aren’t into hard drinks, these guys have amazing iced teas to go with the meal. They are sponsored by the Frams dudes so they don’t serve Coke or Pepsi drinks sadly.

Secret Dish: Heres something that I doubt many people know. These guys serve pork too but they don’t mention it on their menus.(So as not to hurt the religious sentiments of their Moslem customers. A waiter told me this.) They call it Pork Ribs and you may have to persuade the waiter a bit if you want it. Believe me, its worth it. You get nearly 6 to 8 big ribs on your plate and its very filling and tastes amazing.

The place gets a bit crowded at around 8:30-9:00 so you may wanna make reservations in advance. Its open til quite late. I’ve eaten there at 11:30pm but by then the beef steaks were all over.

I stay at Kalyani Nagar and The Bounty is one place that I go to pretty often. I must try the Chk Cordon Bleu. I generally have the Toridango or Italiano sizzler.

I recentally had steak in the US (for the first time) and was totally blown over by it. Can you recommend any other places in Pune for good steak?

Cheers,
Arjun

Living in Kalyani Nagar since January 2008 I have tried the lot - Bounty is ok, but my favourite is absolute casanova - its hard to find, but when you found it, you know you are home - nice place, nice service and god food ......and a ok bar - even after my standard. It a Italian restaurant and some of the guys have even been to Italy. Salt really god, Tortellini god, Pizza ok. A place where you actually can invite italien friends...;-)

The beef sizzlers at Yana's (at Adlabs) are better I think (try the spicy beef bbq ). Bounty used to be really good when they first opened, but with time both the quality and the size of the steaks has reduced. Also it can get very crammed in the evenings, and if you have a noisy bunch at the next table it can get annoying. I'd give it 6/10 overall.
