There is something about names. If you ever plan to open an eatery, mark my words – select a good name. Because good names are enticing. I have based my restaurant selection on the name most of the times even though I did not know much about the place. This is one such time. I liked their name ‘Stories’, so one windy afternoon we set out to find the place. Located at a good place in J P Nagar, Stories also has branches in Rajajinagar and Electronic City. The place is simple, colorful and cheerful. Just like how college goers would love. The décor is mainly to attract the younger lot, considering they are their biggest customers. I loved their ambience as it was nothing dramatic, hi-end or posh.
The staff were friendly and enthusiastic to serve us. First the drinks came. Virgin Gauva and Tropical Mango. They were good. Especially after all the afternoon sun we had walked around in. then came the starters. There was Chicken Parmigiano tenders and chicken wings. The former was creamy and sober while the latter was spicy and juicy. Both were extremely good in their own ways.
Finally came the Dum Murg Biryani which is on their must try list. It is certainly a must try dish in stories. It is spicy, flavorful and exotic. We loved the food in the stories. I would give this place a 4 out of 5 stars for its rooftop ambience, good service and wonderful food.
