It was a special day. We were officially adding someone to our family. Our crazy family! So, we wanted a special place. Was intending to go to this place since long. And it was my birthday too!!! So, we finally were at The London Curry House. They do not book tables in advance, so had to be there early and wait outside till they opened.

The place has a very welcoming ambience. Lots of greenery, wood and coziness. The staff were very friendly and helped us choose our drinks as well as food. We ordered some mocktails and the menu called them as toddlers. Well, so much for following a healthy life. There was a strawberry refresher, videshi shooter and a maza ma life (of course the last one was mine).

Then for starters we ordered paneer chilly dry, the perfect veg seekh kebab and tandoori mushrooms with rocket leaves. The place is well known to have given the Indian food a facelift. Each one of the starters tasted good and came in unique plating that I loved. Too bad it was dark and no bright lighting to get good pictures.

For main course we ordered assorted breads with Birmingham balti sabzi. The main course was yumm too. The curry was spicy enough to hold against the soft breads.

And finally the dessert. A kulfi falooda, an Oreo brownie avalanche and a fried ice cream. All the desserts were too good. We loved all the food and the overall experience. Will certainly be going back to try out other crazy stuff on the menu. Will give this place a 4 out of 5 stars.

Seldom do we find a place that is named after our inner beast. Bakasur is definitely one place that we all can relate to, both in its name and the food that it serves. Located in a prime vicinity, this place offers one of the best buffet for people who love desi cuisine.

The ambience is nice and cosy. It has a typical buffet seating arrangements. We were given our complimentary mocktails as soon as we sat down. We got to choose from a list and they were pretty good. Then, we were introduced to their menu and we began our dinner. The staff were surely friendly and helped us with our orders and selections.

I loved the spread of items that they offered. There was chicken kebab, fish fry, mutton seek and many more non vegetarian items. The vegetarians had their chats, salads, and savories.

The main course was good too. There were breads, gravies, biryanis and rice varieties for all kinds of eaters. I have to admit that the best part was surely the desserts. There were all kinds of desi desserts like the shahi tukda, jalebi, rabdi as well as ice creams.

This place is surely a value for money and I give it 4 out of 5 stars. If you are a large crowd with different likes, this is your destination.

Do you believe in time travel? I do. There is a place in Bangalore that can take you to Rajasthan in few seconds as you enter the place. In fact, there are nine branches of the place all over the city. I have been to two of them, the mantra square, Malleshwaram branch and the Orion mall branch. Rajdhani is an authentic Rajasthani thali restaurant that serves Rajasthani and some Guajarati food. So, if you love these cuisines, then this is your place.

I’ll have to give it up to this place for their hospitality. God! Are they even humans? How can they be so nice to their customers? From the moment you step in, they start with the folded hands Namaste, and go on to even assist you in washing your hands before the lunch! They are ever smiling and insist you eat more, just like your granny at home.

The ambience is quite cozy and welcoming. It is a perfect setting for a family lunch. The butter milk that came first was tasty. It came in a huge tumbler and I couldn’t drink the entire thing. Then came the thali. Rajdhani is all about this one thali. It consists of many bhaji, vegetables and dal with a variety of Marwari breads. The food is entirely saatvik, so people who prefer spicy food may not like the dishes. Also, as its Rajasthani and Guajarati food, many of the dishes were sweet to taste. The thali is huge and consists of many little bowls containing the several dishes. The entire set up is so cute that I felt content by just looking at the thali.

For me, the experience was new and mediocre. Can’t say the food was mind-blowing, but also can’t berate it by saying it was bad. It surely was a healthy plate of meal, but may be it was not my thali of food. Having said that, I do not regret going here because trying new cuisines is interesting and I just loved the essence of the place. I would give this place a 3 out of 5 stars.

Winters are incomplete without midnight snacks. The cold nights accompanied by constant midnight cravings can never let you sleep in peace. For all the fellow foodies who love to binge on some street food during the late hours of the night, there is only one place for you – Sagar hotel. The two storied white building looks simple, plain and old fashioned. But that is exactly opposite of what you will feel about the food served here. The crowd in front of the hotel begins to form at seven and will continue until twelve in the night. Unlike other fine dine restaurants, people do not wait to get into the hotel. They just enjoy their food on the street and it is fun!

Sagar is one place where you can just pull your car to the side after a long drive in the cold winter night and order some tasty street chats and enjoy them sitting inside your car. There is no place else like Sagar when it comes to swift service and consistency in taste. This place gets a 4 on 5 for its lively ambiance and delicious food.
