As we started with understanding the brand and culinary experience.The menu at banjara melting pot is all built in a ipad with menu spread across north Indian, coastal and pan-asian cuisine, A truly multi cuisine experience with rich mouth watering dishes. I liked the presentation of the menu on the iPads as it gives clear understanding of how each dish looks so that guests can make an informed decision before placing their orders. You could place the order directly from the iPads and this would be communicated wirelessly to the kitchen after your server confirms the same with you. This ensures that there is no ambiguity in the order!
