The food you get is like something you cant expect to get anywhere else of the planet.The food here is inexpensive and filling I mean it .A dinner comprising of tandoori chicken and other exotic dishes can be enjoyed by 4 for less than 700 bucks, that's a lot of food !!!

one of the best kulfi you can ever explore in this place with many varieties like kesar,kaju,badam list goes on . Crowded most of the time ...taste remains in the mouth till you have the next kulfi . Afordable and total value for the money.

This is the real colonial deal, out of history, not a hotel built 15 years back. The dress code for men is anti-indian, no dhotis, no chappals. Not one mosquito in sight. I don't know how they achieve such a feat. The food was amazing, not truly indian but with an added Chinese touch. Impeccable service. On a Sunday night,... More

Situated right at the heart of Bangalore, i dont know how i missed out for such a long time.. It serves ultra cheap liquor when compared to the pubs.. and very decent food ( just that it takes quite a long time when compared to the regular restaurants) - however, the food definitely is a 4/5 given the minimal price...
