Bengaluru, India

The reviews seemed great and the menu creative but the food didn’t pass muster but for the sattu paratha. The gobhi manchurian was stodgy and sour , the paneer chatpata had stale paneer and was sour tooo. Perhaps a bad day for them but surely not again for me. may be the sattu paratha some day!

Bier Garten


Visited Bangalore after 7 months and put this on my list to cover. Packed to the hilt on a saturday evening this sprawling microbrewery seemed to be managed with ease. As a group of 4  we parked ourselves at the bar for beer as expecting a table was futile. With Wheat, lager and a Brown Ale on tap and all good our saturday evening had begun very well. The food menu was very elaborate and we chose the homemade nachos and the lotus stem in chilli pepper sauce. The former is highly recommended and latter after more an hour’s wait did not impress. It was crisp but dry and had no sauce as the menu said.

Nice place, Good beers. Will be back soon.

Tao Terraces

Bengaluru, India

Went on a Sunday evening, the 5th floor terrace  is not open to kids, it is more of a lounge, dance space. The diner on the 4th  is not open air and is indoors. We were disappointed initially but the ambience is great with  a spa like vibe , stay away if you want lights. The food , the dimsums, the sushi, the stir frys were well done. Priced fairly this place offers great value , service can be a bit choppy.
P.S: Pad Thai too sweet.

Royal Afghan, ITC Windsor

Bengaluru, India

It is a cult like its counterpart Peshawari and its parent Bukhara. Open air, by the pool, this place does justice to the Bengaluru weather, the evenings wear a romantic look. I was there for a late Sunday Lunch and had some kebabs and whole wheat roomali with Dal Bukhara. The food is great and the service discreet. The menu hasn’t changed for years and this drives loyal patrons indeed,  but for me a little more vegetarian options would have been a delight.

Arbor Brewing Company

Bengaluru, India

I have been here multiple times and the vibe is wonderful and the beers are great.  Love their casual  and laid back pub like atmosphere and their long community tables and benches. ABC is a easy place to be, and yes if you wanna shake a leg or two , you will be disappointed. They do not permit it.  And yes,good food!
