The highlight of this restaurant is its Brazilian barbecue cuisine which is slowly cooked on the grill. As a result of this, a few munch-ons like the bread basket and buffet salad counter is available for the guests till the time the starters are served. The salad counter has an assortment of vivid salads, fresh fruits, ham, dry fruits, and so on. Chicken-pineapple salad is a must have!

Mushroom Cream soup is light with subtle flavors of spices and mushroom.
Coxa De Frango which is the chicken leg marinated with special Brazillian seasoning is a must have. It is tender and juicy right till the center. Flavor of rosemary wins the palette like nobody.
The barbequed duck is yummy with tangy and spicy flavors coming through. A duck is a little denser than chicken so here smaller pieces of duck are kept so that they are cooked well on the grill.
As contrary to meat (read goat meat) loving India, at Wildfire restaurant, keeping the guests coming all across the globe in mind, lamb is served. So if Indians find the meat a lot denser and chewy then blame it on the lamb and not on the chefs!
Salmon is mildly seasoned but cooked to perfection. By the time one is through with the lip smacking Brazilian barbeque starters there is generally no space left for the main course. But still if one wishes to have the main course then there is a wide range of delectable pizza & pasta options.
Among desserts Chocolate- Vanilla Cassatta with a raspberry sorbet is a perfect way to end the Wildfire restaurant experience. The raspberry sorbet is deeply frozen form of Raspberry sorbet. The taste of this Cassatta with the sorbet cleanses rather refreshes the palate.
