Evoke 2.0 is a treasure in the midst of chaos. When I was driving through the small lanes in velachary I was not sure if I was doing the right thing by visiting this place. The entrance and outer look is very deceptive, but it’s a whole different place inside. The place is tastefully done. Rustic auto garage interiors with lot of space. The cocktails and mocktail needs a special mention.

Fresh watermelon martini: Watermelon cubes Triple sec syrup Vodka

My favourite mocktail was the blue berry Virgin mojito. It tasted as good as it looked.
The starter need a special mention, one of the few resto bars that has given so must importance to their food. Every starter we had was excellent on freshness and flavour.
Carebian chicken with cilantro and pesto had a refreshing new taste.
The Akbari kebab was more like Reshmi kebab,had a delicate flavour of Indian herbs.
Lovely fish, was indeed a very lovely fish. The sauce not only looked drop dead gorgeous, but tasted good too.
Bhatti ka murgh, had the most authentic, north indian taste. Very rare to find such flavour in Chennai.
The murgh pudhina kebab was the green masala kebab with mint and corriander, cooked to perfection.
Phuket fish was like a pakoda, but had a very nice subtle flavour.
Stir fried chicken with Chinese with Chinese greens. This is one dish, that was ok. I personally did not find it wow.
Achari paneer tikka was flavourful and soft. After all the starters and drinks we did not want to have the mains, but decide to just fill our tummy with very little of shezwan Noodles, that had just the right flavour.
Overall an excellent afternoon with the best drinks and starters.
A must visit place to all you people in velachary, who need not have to drive all the way to the other side of city to have good food, cocktails and mocktails.
