The Bunta (or Banta) is a classic "desi" preparation of lemon soda that almost everyone has had at some point in their life. The marble-stopper bottle that a bunta is stored in is iconic!
With the advent of time and the increase in the popularity of the beverage, several flavours of bunta were introduced - orange, cola, etc.
The culmination of this, as I see it, is BUNTA BAR.

2. Seating and Ambiance
The property is very spacious and has nicely spread out seating. The interiors are neo-desi with lots of eye-catching wall decor.
The most prominent, however, is the use of empty bunta bottles in arches and chandeliers.
The staff is courteous and helpful with prompt service.
My friend and I were famished and had a lot of time to kill. Consequently, we ordered one dish at a time (and ended up ordering quite a few ).
SANTRA WHISKY BUNTA was served in a classic bunta bottle and had some masala in it. Refreshing and flavourful!
CHOCO NUTTY was one of the better shakes I've had in a while.
DELHI 6 and NIGHTLIFE OF MUMBAI were cocktails served in "desi" bottles with their own colourful stickers. Both had a good concentration of alcohol and unique flavours.
CHICKEN CHILLI LOLLYPOPS were nice - crispy outside, soft inside with a flavourful sauce.
MASALA BUNTA FRIES WITH CHEESE, PEPPERONI, RED ONION AND JALAPEÑO - I loved these loaded fries. They are excellent finger food and are pretty heavy, too!
FALAFEL, served with pita bread and hummus, was pretty good. The hummus, especially, was terrific!
CHILLI PRAWNS - nothing extraordinary, but nothing wrong either.
BBQ CHICKEN, MOZZARELLA AND SMOKED CHEESE DESI FLAT BREAD - an indianised thin crust pizza that was loaded with cheese.
Bunta Bar might be a little way off from the hustle and bustle of CP's inner circle but it is definitely worth the extra effort. A complete package of comfort, good food and good drinks with a moderate price tag - this place is a winner!
