Given the location of this restaurant, there aren’t many such places and that’s a plus. One floor of the place is classy and air-conditioned while the terrace part is wonderful for dining during the cooler days in Bangalore. While the name suggests Indian food, the restaurant also has the “Indian-Chinese” offerings along with Mangalorean style food. We skipped the Chinese part and dived into the other parts of the menu
The menu has quite a bit of choices in each section. For soups we had the Kalimirch Shorba and the Gosht Pudina Shorba. The Shorba was very flavourful with the latter having ample flavour of mint thrown in. It was also a bit salty to our liking but the restaurant was ready to rectify that.
For starters we had the “Khaandari Murgh Tikka” and “Palak Paneer Kurkure” from the North Indian section. The interesting thing about the Tikka was that, the colour it had was achieved by using beet-root juice and as for the kurkure, the outer covering was papad and the pieces of paneer was filled with palak. Very nicely done and tasty as well. The tikka though was not too high on taste.
From the Mangalorean section, we ordered the ultimate favourites – Anjal Masala Fry and Chicken Ghee Roast. Both dishes were hands down the best Mangalorean food we’ve had in Bangalore. It was delicious and we felt like we were eating at our favourite joints in Mangalore.
For the main course, we ordered Reshmi Murgh and Shaam Savera. Both had similar gravy bases but that was probably a folly in ordering from our side. Nothing to complain about in either of the dishes. We paired it with Cheese Butter Garlic Naan, and believe us when we say, this “bread” was seriously the Winner of the day. It is so good, you can eat it plain without the gravy. Best order of the day.
We followed this up with Jeera Rice and Dal Fry, both which were satisfying enough for our taste buds and tummies.
Although we were full, we could not resist ordering a dessert. For this we ordered “Shahi Tukda”. Few the bread slices where perfectly fried, being soft on the inside and crispy on the outside, while few were too crispy like toast. Although, the bread piece in itself might be too sweet, paired with the tasty Rabdi topping it was just right.
The restaurant does offer alcohol and is also a top choice for birthday parties in the area. All in all, this place promises a good time when dining out with family especially when everyone wants something different to satisfy their taste buds.
