We were very keen to experience Mumbai’s new Tapas bar and kitchen. So off we went after making reservations for 8pm, we’re told we’d have to leave by 10pm which has become the norm in many restaurants.

Uno Mas is located in a developing part of BKC... Inspire BKC which is very posh and huge. Lots more restuarants expected to open there, but right now Uno Mas is the only one open.

We walked into a well-done-up space which was smaller than what I’d assumed it to be based on the photographs I’d seen. Large D-shaped bar in the centre. One up level seating on the left and slightly elevated seating on the right. 

We proceeded to order our drinks and appetisers. The server told us we would need about three tapas plates per head.

Here’s what we had:

Gambas Al Ajillo - garlic shrimp - delicious - we ordered another later - it comes with two thin pieces  of bread to soak up the juices 

Clams tossed with garlic, chillies and lemon – average

Calamares Rellenos - shrimp stuffed baby squid – average

Albondigas - buff meatballs – average

Patatas Machaconas Con Cerdo - potatoes with pork belly - below average

Paella - seafood one – good

Tarta Naranja - orange tart - delicious 

We drank cocktails:

Aztec - malt whiskey-based

Sevilla - Drambuie, oolong, orange juice and sparking wine - very good

Kalingad - white wine,  watermelon juice and sherry 

Plane to Sitges -whiskey, aperol and sherry

 

Good and prompt service 

Why was I not blown away? I think it was that the food wasn’t exceptional in taste, portions were small as informed at the start. Even the bread with the prawns was very thin and small-sized!

It’s early days yet so they can still fine-tune and improve the food! At these portions and prices, Uno Mas needs to be exceptional for customers to return.
