Don?t be deceived by the name- US Pizza is very much an Indian brand. That much is clear from their concerted attempt to add a desi touch to the world?s favorite Italian import. While at the same time offering the best of international flavors by serving up globally recognized favorites. Kochiites can rejoice as US Pizza finally makes its entrance to the city?s dining landscape with its easy to spot restaurant at Petta.
Before we delve into their extensive and mouth watering menu or discuss their cheery and bright ambience I must first explain the unbelievable offer that sets US Pizza apart from any other eatery in the city. Get this- Unlimited Pizza, salads (24 varieties), garlic bread, a soup and a dessert for Rs. 225(per head). It reduces to Rs.200 for the all you can eat Veg Buffet. The prices are increased slightly for the dinner buffet (Rs.260/Rs.230). Frankly you might end up eating your money?s worth in salads and garlic bread. This multi course buffet begins with a visit to the salad bar where you can choose from varieties like coleslaw, macaroni and cheese, potato and pineapple, chicken salad and plenty more. Your soup will arrive shortly followed by a basket of Garlic bread. The garlic bread is a highlight of US Pizza- deliciously buttery, warm with a hint of garlic, it?s hard to refrain from filling up on Garlic bread forgetting the incoming army of Pizza in the main course. A rookie mistake would be to gorge on the admittedly enticing salads and bread leaving little space for the pizzas. The pizzas emerge first small then progressively larger as you begin to feel your belts tighten. This heavenly glutton-fest is capped off by a brownie with ice cream.
For a conventional dining experience you can choose from an excellent list of starters- BBQ Wings, Hariyali Lollypop, Soya tikki and Potato wedges. Pizzas fall under 2 main categories- Desi and Classic (each split into Veg and Non Veg). Pizzas in the desi category vividly represent different Indian regional flavors- Jalandhar Tandoori Chicken, Spicy Chettinad, Southern Spice etc. Classic pizzas comprise vintage varieties like Pepperoni plus, Mambo Combo, Meateor. A veg pizza will set you back between Rs 100 to 165 (small) or Rs 320 to 375(large). An average non veg pizza will cost you anywhere from Rs. 155 to 195(small) or Rs. 340 to 430(large). For a healthier option take your pick from Greek Salad, Greens with Ranch, Crispy Chicken salad or Chicken salami with pasta (available for approx. Rs 75).
The restaurant is bright, bustling and peppy while a single spacious floor built to accommodate the inevitable party sized groups who will constitute their frequent customers. A projector beams your favorite music channels onto a wall, giving you something to keep an eye on while you anticipate the next round of pizza. US Pizza clearly emerges as the preferred choice for parties, treating friends or chowing down after a long week at the office or college. So for a hot feast that will not burn a hole in your wallet head on to US Pizza.
