Thank you Carpe Diem for inviting me to The Flying Saucer Sky Bar at Viman Nagar, Pune, for food tasting. Chef Nick Bajaj ensured that the presentation and the authenticity of the food he served matched the expectations of the food tasters. And hosts Shivangi and Carina ensured the comfort.

Coming directly to the review, I rate The Flying Saucer Sky Bar amongst the best restaurants in the city if you are looking for authentically made food in a variety of cuisines, sitting on top of the town with beautiful views of the city all around. It was dinner time, and the bright lights of the city in dusk added to the ambience.
We were served the below list, out of which I tasted vegetarian non-alcoholic servings…
Flaming Sauce Cocktail
Safe Sex on the Beach Mocktail
Mushroom and Parsley Croquettes
Chicken Tasha with Raw Tomato Salsa
Classic Stuffed Tandoori Mushrooms
Malaysian Pop Corn Chicken
Lot Veg. Pizza
Paneer Kali Miri Tikka
Chilly Cheese Poppers
Beijing Crispy Cheese Dumplings
Flying Roast Chicken
Caponata with Spiral Broccoli and Pine Nuts
Chocolate Butter Cake
Blueberry Cheese Cake
Chocolate Caramel Cake
Spanish Churros with Warm Chocolate
They displayed us The Fire and Ice / Flaming Sauce Cocktail from the bar. Here is the video…
Both the Mushroom starters: “Mushroom and Parsley Croquettes” and “Classic Stuffed Tandoori Mushrooms” were perfectly made.
The Lot Veg. Pizza also tasted delicious. The pizza being thin crust, I was a bit hesitant as I don’t like thin crust pizzas. However, it turned out to be quite tasty.
The Paneer Kali Miri Tikka had the perfect amount of marination. It is vital to have it in perfect proportion otherwise you will either just feel more paneer or more Kali Miri marination.
The star of the evening was Chilly Cheese Poppers. There was nothing that could have bet the delicacy. Brilliant I say.
Coming to the mains, I must say that Dal Makhani was true to its originality, and tasted heavenly.
The Veg. Biryani was not up to the mark as it did not taste any near how normally a Biryani is expected to taste.
The show-stealers in desserts were “Spanish Churros with Warm Chocolate” and “Blueberry Cheese Cake”
