Imagine eating in the middle of skeletons, wrecked ships and pirates. You would think that you will not have the appetite to do so. But, here is a place where the ambiance is strange, but surprisingly, it does not at all bother you. In fact, the place makes the food all the more interesting. I am talking about the black pearl. It has two branches in Bangalore one in koramangala and another in marathalli.
Black pearl is unique. Not just because of its name, ambiance or food, but the entire feeling about the place make you want to come back again. As you enter the place, you know that it is going to be an interesting night. For me, the dinner will always be special because we cousins were meeting for a sendoff party for our cousin who was flying abroad for work. The place is well decked up with pirate statues, treasure boxes, skeletons, wooden planks and other accessories that make it look like an abandoned ship. The staff welcome you and introduce you to their menu. I just loved the attention that the staff paid to each one of us.
Coming to the food, we has starters on barbeque to begin with. The starters kept coming until we were actually full. There was live band and the songs selected were simply wonderful. They had emu, octopus, rabbit and squids too, but I did not taste any one of them. However, the chicken, fish and mutton dishes were fresh and yummy.

Well, the main course was simple, yet tasty. Many places which boast of lavish buffets do not provide basic level of taste when it comes to main course. But, black pearl is an exception in this case. They have delicious biryani, curd rice, bread, gravies and curries spread out for you.
And then, here comes my favorite part. The desserts! I will have to say that the black pearl takes the cake when it comes to desserts. They have the most interesting desserts like chocolate sandwich. Paan pudding, vermicelli lollipop, coconut balls, chocolate lollipop, malai chocolate, gulab jamun, and pastries. Trust me, you can eat just the desserts and you will be satisfied.
Live counters make the best mini burgers, sandwiches, chats and sea food that you can choose. I always thought that the barbeque nation was my favorite buffet place until I came here. Now this is my hot favorite buffet destination. I give a 4.5 out of five stars for this wonderful place.
