It's an out of the way, outdoor restaurant; the temperature was nice at night. I had the Whopper; it is a very large cheeseburger - yes I know Beef in India; I was surprised as well; but it was one of the best hamburgers I've ever had. It is very Very large; so come hungry.

It is lit up colorful lighting all over the place. The waiters are dressed up in a waist coat with a bow tie. As you enter, you are greeted by old gentlemen with a... More

This is one of the best place to have steaks in bangalore. I wish they could serve beer along with it. The staffs are pretty old and sometimes they are slow. the atmosphere is zing.

Best steak and burgers we have had. Attentive manager who educates you about his food and makes you feel at home. Try the whopper and chateaubriand. The apple pie is to die for.

I have been to some of the best rated pasta places in Italy, and this place is right up there. Quite affordable as well. The ambiance could have been a lot better.
