Virat Kohli's Restaurant One8 Commune | Resto-bar in Pune

I recently had a privilege to dine in at one of the branches of one8 commune which is located at Bund Garden, Pune. Even though it was almost midnight the weekend crowd was very lively and happening. The fun atmosphere and excitement of the youngster could be seen reflected and complimented in the delicious food.

One8 Commune is a beautiful Restro bar. They have a vibrant, multi-cuisine, menu that caters to a global palate.

This cafe is known for it's relaxed, comforting vibe and ofcourse menu. One8 commune at Pune is a suave eatery serving Continental, Mexican, Thai, Chinese, Mediterranean, North-Indian and Asian cuisines. The menu is incredibly detailed and the starters comprise a whole lot of options including salads, baos, tempura, dimsum, cakes and more. 

One8 commune also offers all the classic cocktails and mocktails you can hope in a restro pub. The interior and decor are beautiful and fantastic. 

You will be reminded it as a Virat's restaurant by the big cricket score board on the wall. No wonder, it is one of the favorite restaurants of Cricket lovers and let's not forget about the food. The restaurant has some innovative menu and the food you have probably never heard of!

I loved how he listed he favorite meals in a section on the food menu. It has some interesting vegan food options - Super Food Salad, Avocado Tartar, Mushroom Googly Dimsums and Pearl Barley Risotto.

The desserts, especially the 5 Rivers Mud Cake And Oven Based Cheese Cake are simply delightful. Do try their Superfood Salad, Mushroom Googly Dimsums, Signature Hummus, The one8 Mezze, Communing Indian Way are way too yummy. 

One8 Commune has so much to offer. It is that one food trip you would want to remember.

Dimsums is everyone's favorite and Virat's too. These dimsums are prepared with truffle oil and is filled with assorted wild mushrooms, cream cheese and vegetarian broth. They come with a beautiful tomato garlic sauce.

5. Five Rivers Mud Cake

For Dessert, go ahead with Mud Cake. It's a Decadent layered chocolate mud cake and chocolate mousse. This is my favorite dessert of all. It was the ideal end to the full meal.
