INDI

Magrath Road ,Bangalore
March 5, 2010
Indi is almost there but not quite there kind of place, if you like bollywood music then this is your kind of scene, there is nothing different here from their other franchises( Le Rock & Legends of Rock), its the same watered down beer,strange seating system, and of course the awesome sound system,Indi tends to get tad too boring after a while,but a few hilarious incidents kept the evening going :) One guy kept nagging the DJ to play a song and he got so pissed and spun the turntable real hard,next thing, we witnessed a black frisbee flying through the air and crashing into the bar shelf. Indie doesn't have a dance floor,but people find ingenious methods to create space to dance,like this one lady who after downing a few swigs, saw a nice dance floor in her table,*sigh*,so she climbs onto the table and starts dancing away..anyway all is well that ends well and the end came with the girl unloading a nice stream of puke rain on her three friends seated below..

German Bakery

Koregaon Park ,PMC
November 20, 2009 Rating
@anuj..it needn't always have to be about slick ambiance or awesome food (or even firangis).the first time i went to pecos in bangalore, i was like ytf is this run down place serving watered down beer so revered..sometimes you tend to cut some slack for a place which rendered some fun moments in your life. ..maybe it served as your post-bunking hangout, or might be a place where you often caught up with old friends and shared a good laugh..dunno if u been to gokuls in mumbai..its one disaster of a boozeshack...but i know of at least 50 guys who religiously visits the place every weekend...but as always, everyone is entitled to his/her opinion..whatever floats your boat.. cheers

Mavalli Tiffin Rooms

Lalbagh Main Road ,Bangalore
October 27, 2009 Rating
...went there on a Tuesday afternoon nd we got our tables almost instantly(just show up at around 12.30ish, you'll get tables) ,we were taken through a maze like setting which ended in a private dining hall of sorts...service was top notch..even with around 80+ people dining ,we were never left waiting for stuff to arrive...nd i dunno how to explain this but this place smells & feels old ..in a good way of course,theres this lingering nostalgic feel..maybe its just me..nyway,the food was flawless, northern kannadiga ishtyle, i had no clue what i was eating but they tasted really good,especially this thing they kept referring to as saagu or something...am not really into kannidga food(especially the sweetened sambhar..yuck!!) but then i loved the stuff they served here...ya the sambar ended up tasting like the rasam and vice-versa but thats a minor aberration i am willing to overlook :),....nd at 120rs i don't think its expensive,considering the quality of food offered

La Feasta Restaurant

C G Road ,Ahmedabad
August 14, 2009 Rating
decor nd ambiance is a tad too minimalistic for their breathtakingly overpriced menu..the food at La Feasta is no doubt really good, but the pricing should be such that if your ambiance sux(which it does in this case) then the food should be really, nd i mean really good in order to justify the price tag(which it doesnt in this case)..so La Feasta gets a 2.5/5

Vishalla Restaurant

Vasna ,Ahmedabad
August 14, 2009
if you are visiting the city for the first time do drop in for a meal, its quite an experience eating at this place, but Vishalla isnt the Vishalla it used to be, of course if you are a newbie to the place you wouldn't know, so no issues,:) !!

Little Italy

Sarkhej Gandhinagar Highway ,Ahmedabad
August 14, 2009
little italy aint the best place to go if you are put off by bland/insipid tasting food, everyone i ask says that how authentic italian stuff tastes, cmon,i mean, forget the spices, please dont tell me that Italians don't use salt in their food.the interiors are good in itself, but falls short when you compare it with their other little italy franchises in bangalore nd mumbai.

Wink

Cuffe Parade ,Mumbai
August 7, 2009 Rating
*sigh* the good ol' days when we used to tank up at shady bar(usually gokul's) nd head straight to wink,since i was usually balancing the thin line bordering total blackout and consciousness i don think i can make an honest review of this place, but whatever i experienced in my semi conscious state of mind was good, really good.

On Toes

Juhu ,Mumbai
August 7, 2009
extremely popular amongst locals,try to arrive before 9, after that, it will require some extreme moshing skills to get around. On Toes is a casual pub(kind of a juhu's version of Hawaiian shack) where no one gives a darn about anything around them,the tables are cramped together to a point where you have to be deaf so as not to hear the conversation in the adjacent table. On toes has a decently stocked bar, but don't expect really exotic stuff

Galaxy Of Stars

Malad West ,Mumbai
August 7, 2009 Rating
don't quite agree with the editors note saying you don't have to out shout the music system to converse,the music at Galaxy of Stars is so freaking loud that you can almost feel your heart,lungs nd pretty much every one of your vital organs reverberating(including the brain,maybe tis the alcohol,not sure).

Gokul Restaurant

Colaba ,Mumbai
August 7, 2009
my must visit place when in mumbai,Gokul is a dingy ol' bar where you can get seriously drunk without a care for the world,the washroom in this place wouldn't seem out of place in a slasher flick, my humble suggestion is to not to eat anything from the place, just drink to your hearts content (or your puking threshold,whichever is earlier) nd head out to Bade Miyan,,Gokul is located just a lane behind the Taj,phew some contrast eh.

Finger Cross Restaurant

Andheri West ,Mumbai
August 7, 2009 Rating
Finger Cross restaurant would bag the "value for money resto" anyday, beer pitcher comes to arnd 225 rs, which is cheap considering the ambiance, we have barged into the place at arnd 12 nd was still warmly greeted, music played is mostly retro nd groove, the max you'll end up spending at Finger Cross Restaurant is 400 rs(per head including drinks)

Aura Restrobar

Powai ,Mumbai
August 7, 2009 Rating
is sortfa mishmash between a bar,lounge,cigar bar nd restaurant .Aurora Restobar tries earnestly to justify each of this labels, sadly failing in almost every department. couldn't comprehend their intention for placing mannequins all over the place,the saving grace is the 2+1 happy hours.

Atrium Lounge

Bandra West ,Mumbai
August 7, 2009 Rating
not really the place for financially conscious( a pint of fosters comes to an atrocious 250 buks) food nd service is all good, my only grouse is the location, Atrium Lounge is bang right to the hotel lobby (on an elevation), they serve wasabi peas with the drinks, awesome stuff, just be careful , the stuff irritates your nasal lining nd you'll get the exact feeling of someone pouring hot sulfuric acid down your nose if you bite into a pumped one.

Pure

Bandra West ,Mumbai
August 7, 2009 Rating
great looking place with contrasting seating sections(there is a well lite "white section" nd a dimly lit black section"), service is top grade, probably the best i have experienced, the chef, Joshua is one inhumanly skilled dude nd conjours up some divine preparations even while incorporating the subtlest of your preferences. Pure is one of those places which deserves a 10/5.

Hornby's Pavilion

Parel ,Mumbai
August 7, 2009
hat(not the noun,the verb(past tense of hit) this place for an early breakfast the other day ( well 3 am is pretty early i guess) had coffee, brownies, omlette nd pancakes,everything was awesome to the core, Hornby's Pavilion incinerates flavors,bayview nd pretty much every other coffee shop in south mumbai.

Indigo

Colaba ,Mumbai
August 7, 2009 Rating
the food at Indigo Restaurant rivals that of top notch restos anywhere in the world, unfortunately their prices too compare to that of a snazzy restaurant in downtown new york, head straight to the top floor if you cant take the noise, the lounge downstairs gets so insanely crowded that you'll be fighting for a gasp of fresh air.

Khyber Restaurant

Khar West ,Mumbai
August 7, 2009 Rating
this place is massive,humongous is more like it, but some ingenious interior designing makes it feel like 12-15 separate joints within a big resto, Khyber Restaurant is famed for its kebabs nd i understood why as soon as my incisors sunk its way inside the chicken kalmi kebab.

Britannia And Company Restaurant

Ballard Estate ,Mumbai
August 7, 2009 Rating
eerie ambiance,the paneling barely holds the crumbling ceiling, furnishing is strictly utilitarian, but who gives a heck as long as they serve heavenly mutton sali boti nd chicken berry pulav( tastes a lot better than it sounds,trust me on this), nd ya, if you are a veggie, dont even bother going to Cafe Britannia,

Amar Juice Center

Vile Parle ,Mumbai
August 7, 2009 Rating
if you live in mumbai nd haven't been to amar juice center,then its time to leave the city,seriously, pack your bags nd catch the next flight back.

Trattoria

Cuffe Parade ,Mumbai
August 7, 2009 Rating
wat can i say, Trattoria never dissapoints,well, at least until the bill arrives.but honestly, the place is a lill too expensive(buffet is for 1300 buks!!), the place gets incredibly noisy even on weekday afternoons so kindly vanquish any thoughts of a cosy,romantic saturday night evening.

Yoko Sizzlers

Fort ,Mumbai
August 7, 2009 Rating
stick to the sizzlers nd salads,everything else (pizza,sandwiches) are the same stuff you get everywhere else( just that the pricing is double), Yoko Sizzlers offer generous helping nd its unlikely you'll be able to finish off a sizzler all by yourself, the max you'll end up paying for a sizzler is arnd 300 buks which imho is totally paisa vasool.

August 7, 2009
Stax does a great job of fitting into the heavily cliched mould commonly referred to as "fine dining", classy,discrete,chic nd super expensive, food is good, would go out on a limb and say they serve the best tiramisu in mumbai,expect a damage of 1500rs per head.

August 7, 2009
well, err, the karaoke nights at jazz by the bay is strictly recommended for a 12 th grader, they play pathetic backstreet boys nd MLTR stuff, the buffet priced at 300 rs is bang for buck, they offer a pretty decent selection of appetizers nd soups, not just jazz by the bay has recently earned the ire of dessert enthus coz they chopped down the selection to just 3-5.

Life Force Homeopathy

Chembur West ,Mumbai
August 6, 2009 Rating
pretty renowned amongst homeo enthusiasts..had gone to the place regarding a nasty case of chronic tonsillitis, did get better but wasn't totally cured.

5 The Restaurant

Khar West ,Mumbai
August 4, 2009
stepping inside 5 the restaurant is akin to strutting through a dimension door,the place miraculously filters out the chaos from sv road nd is surprisingly quiet with candle lights flickerin in every table. food is primarily continental/italian nd tasted authentic to a fault.

Cafe Churchill

Colaba ,Mumbai
August 4, 2009 Rating
regardless of the day/time, you are likely to spend a good half hour waiting outside for the tables to empty up,Cafe Churchill can barely seat 20,ambiance is dingy at best,but gives a heck, these guys serve some of the best continental munchies in the whole of mumbai,just concentrate on your food nd hog away

Gallops Restaurant

Mahalaxmi ,Mumbai
August 4, 2009 Rating
a tad pricey but the airy/spacey ambiance more than makes up for it,try to get a table by the window as it allows for some really nice views of the race course, meal for two at Gallops restaurant should come to 1200rs approx

Food Inn Restaurant

Colaba ,Mumbai
August 4, 2009 Rating
one of those rare places which serves good food at affordable prices,even if you have a stiflingly heavy meal,the max you'll shell out at food inn is arnd 250 rs..nd the food these guys serve is yummy to the core.

August 4, 2009
Coriander is a ghar-khanaish eatery nd is probably the only place in mumbai where you get to eat a full meal(4 chapati, one sabji, rice,dal nd salad) for 40 buks, sadly they shut down the place a month back, RIP coriander.

Caravan Serai Restaurant

Bandra West ,Mumbai
August 4, 2009
their Dal bukhari at Caracan Serai is rivaled only by the one served at Peshawari(at the ITC), opt for anything with panner in it, unlikely you'll go wrong , they use some super soft marshmallow like panneer which melts in your mouth releasing all the spices.

August 4, 2009
the food (whenever it came) was awesome, be prepared to wait ,wait.. wait nd wait some more, ambiance at angeethi is your typical north indian eatery kinds, albeit with dimmed lighting.

Pool Side

Andheri East ,Mumbai
August 4, 2009 Rating
cirkus cirkus is quite a cirkus with hyperactive little kids running amok all over the place,cirkus cirkus offers pool access nd some kiddie activities with their sunday buffet.

Gaylord Restaurant

Churchgate ,Mumbai
August 4, 2009
good food, really nice ambiance but the service is so very pathetic,to be rendered tolerable levels of service at gaylord, you either have to be a firang or step out from a audi/BMW/merc.

Diva Maharashtracha

Mahim ,Mumbai
August 4, 2009 Rating
must visit for connoisseurs of maharashtrian cuisine, every single dish i had was loaded with spices nd oozed exotic aromas,diva maharasthracha is unabashedly lenient to non veggies, but last i heard, they have a special shravan menu coming up, pricing is on the higher side,

The Tasting Room

Lower Parel ,Mumbai
August 4, 2009 Rating
tasting room has an earthy rustic charm to it(unsurprising, considering its located above the good earth store) which makes it the perfect spot for a quiet lunch.if you could eat just one thing from the tasting room, try the excruciatingly sinful mud pie, ticket to heaven sort of taste.

A Pranav's Mirchi

Velacheri ,Chennai
July 29, 2009 Rating
a friendly no frills eating joint, the service is at this place is top notch without being intrusive, Pranav's Mirrchi serves a heavenly chicken mayonnaise.

Pasha

Anna Salai ,Chennai
July 29, 2009
the images of the conservative city which i left 4 yrs ago went up in smoke as i stepped into Pasha,was quite a shock to see the place empty at 11,but 20 mts later the crowd poured in, dressed in uberslick party wears, sheesh, back in bangalore, everyone would have gone home by 11. Pasha has a namesake dance floor, the drinks are pricey, but you have to give it to the place for the insane amount of energy it packs.

Isys

Jaya Nagar 3rd Block ,Bangalore
July 29, 2009 Rating
the place witnesses a literal infestation of techies during the buffet hours, so be prepared to b moshed, but the buffet at Isys is bang for buck at 225 rs nd they serve a couple of salads, biryani ( be warned, Isys comes up with strange combos the likes of pomegranate vegetable biryani??!!wth) nd a good selection of deserts(pudding,icecream nd soft cakes)

Grasshopper

Bannerghatta Road ,Bangalore
July 29, 2009 Rating
set amidst tranquil garden, Grasshopper is a one of a kind resto in the city, they don have a menu, but you'll be served a customized 7 course meal. the restaurant is housed in an old farm house which further adds on to the charm of the place. you'll have to reserve a day in advance nd choose form veg/nonveg nd red meat/seafood. prices are steep, but there are certain things/experiences in life for which you shouldn't put a price tag on, this is one of those..nyway, for the benefit of mr sabya ,here it goes, meal for two at the Grasshopper comes to arnd 3000rs.

Fuga

Castle Street ,Bangalore
July 29, 2009 Rating
i wuld stop going to fuga the moment they stop serving absinthe,sadly, this is the only place in the whole of Bangalore which serves the stuff.

Enigma The Pub

Koramangala 5th Block ,Bangalore
July 29, 2009 Rating
engima wont be winning the "most happening" pub tag anytime soon, but its a decent enuf place for a weekend smash. plus, its pretty cheap

South Indies

Indira Nagar ,Bangalore
July 29, 2009 Rating
whew!! never thought i would end up paying 80 buks for a plate of appam, used to have it for 12 rs in a seaside shack, back in trivandrum, nd it tasted a million times better. nd i think south indies has to be the only south indian restaurant in the whole world where they don serve chutney with thier dosas, jeeez, sheer daylight robbery.

Shiro

Vittal Mallya Road ,Bangalore
July 29, 2009 Rating
Shiro is an uber cool, slick, luxe pad, these guys have a massive cocktail menu,many of the names i was acquainted for the first time, the White Russian i had was the almost perfect kinds, with the of right amount of baileys, *sigh* finally!!

Souza Lobo

Calangute ,Goa
July 29, 2009 Rating
easily the most popular eat out in calangute beach, except for the lobsters( priced at arnd 2k) everything else in Souza Lobo is reasonable.try the assorted sea food grill(arnd 400 buks i think) which consists of squids, red snappers, oysters nd crabs. the fact that they are located along the edge of the beach allows for some stunning views of the ocean.

July 29, 2009
Chances Casino is Goa's version of the Flamingo, the place is value for money, you pay 200 buks entry , you're treated to unlimited snacks, beverages(no booze) nd a buffet dinner.they have classic casino games the likes of roulette,black jack,poker nd good ol' slot machines.

Tito's Retro Club

Calangute so ,Goa
July 29, 2009 Rating
probably the most hyped/talked/discussed party haunt in goa, Club Tito is is a favored meetup shack for drug traffickers which has rendered it with a shady reputation. i just cant stand the dumb trance hip hop numbers these guys play,everythin else abt this place rocks!!

Excess Club And Lounge

Madhapur ,Hyderabad
July 29, 2009 Rating
this place is huge, nd i mean boisterously huge,in spite of which Excess Club and Lounge gets packed to the hilt. the place has two levels with three different bar counters nd private dining rooms, but they have sidelined the dance floor into a tiny cramped area.

Bottles And Chimney Bistro

Begumpet ,Hyderabad
July 29, 2009 Rating
if you are okay with the idea of being in a space where 30 odd guys are puffin away like no tomorrow, bottles n chimneys is a decent enuf hangout.

Club 8

Begumpet ,Hyderabad
July 29, 2009
tympanum shattering decibels, cheap booze,decent ambiance, what more can a guy ask for?? Club 8 is a pretty old watering hole but it has managed to reinvent itself over the years, which makes it one of my fav hangouts in hyderabad.

July 29, 2009
ebony group of hotels are famed for thier panoramic views, sadly, Finz Restaurant just didn't measure up, my standard for comparison being it's bangalore peer, the 13th floor. starters were good,if you are a non veggie that is. service was lousy,

Magnolia Restaurant

Koramangala 3rd Block ,Bangalore
July 28, 2009 Rating
stick to thai food, they're awesome, cant quite say the same of the "supposed" chinese fares . Magnolia Restaurant is a good visit nonetheless,it has a this quaint ambiance which makes it all the more inviting.

Rubys Bar And Grill

M.G Road ,Bangalore
July 28, 2009 Rating
an uncooked steak is a sure shot way to lose customers,nd Ruby Tuesday seems to have learned it the hard way, the place was deserted the last time i went there nd after takin a bite off the steak i understood why.

100 Feet Boutique Restaurant

Indira Nagar ,Bangalore
July 28, 2009 Rating
this place has been in business for quite some time now, nd they have recently renovated to adopt a more spacious feel,even the food has improved a tad after the makeover, tis not a regular dining option, thanks to the pricing, but 100 ft is perfect for those birthday bashes/anniversaries.

July 28, 2009
a nice hangout place which actually serves good food,aah finally.Road Trip has Harley Davidson posters plastered all over nd a yezdi road king parked inside. the fish nd chips i ate was top notch,my friend ordered a pasta was a lill too bland, but they took it back, spiced it up nd served it with complimentary blue cheese.

Angeethi

Museum Road ,Bangalore
July 28, 2009 Rating
another one in the long list of wannabe dhabas, just that this one is on the rooftop, they have hiked the buffet price to 225 rs + tax which is so not worth it. maybe i am prejudiced coz i was never a big fan of punjabi fares, but honestly i found oye amristar miles better than angeethi.

Mainland China

Church Street ,Bangalore
July 28, 2009 Rating
Mainland China serves fairly authentic Chinese fare, having been to singapore, i can vouch that the stuff they serve here almost makes the cut. service is sluggish but its understandable coz the place gets jam packed,

Hard Rock Cafe

St. Marks Road ,Bangalore
July 28, 2009 Rating
if you been to the HRC's in mumbai/pune/delhi/anywhere else for that matter, then you are going to be sorely disappointed with Hard Rock Cafe Bangalore,in terms of food,music nd memorabilia.

A Taste Of Rampur

Koramangala 5th Block ,Bangalore
July 28, 2009
good food,yes, authentic, sadly no. Taste of Rampur has tried to fusionize north nd south indian culinary methods, resulting in something of an abstract which is neither here nor there.service was really prompt without intrusive, ambiance could do with a bit up spruce up.

Pecos Pub

Rest House Road ,Bangalore
July 28, 2009 Rating
best known nd oldest of bangalore pubs,these guys hav been in business since the 70's, Pecos holds a nostalgic charm for many nd thankfully you wont find too many teeny boppers nd mall brats dropping in.

Millers 46

Vasanth Nagar ,Bangalore
July 28, 2009 Rating
opened with much promise, Millers 46 used to serve a really mean medium rare, but soon the quality went for a toss nd the place witnessed a propositional decline in clientele, was really a matter of time before they shutdown nd think they finally called it quits last month.RIP Millers 46

Serengeti

Madiwala ,Bangalore
July 28, 2009 Rating
used to b good ,not anymore, the fact that there are only a handful of choices in the city for theme based restaurants probably made these guys complacent,service hovers between sluggish nd okayish,food is passable,the prices in Serengeti is sure to squeeze out any last bit of "serenity" in you.

July 28, 2009
they are good with the food part, but if Fiorano Restaurant hopes to take on the likes of via milano nd little italy, they need to hire a really good interior designer soon,dunno if the bland interiors were intentional but it looked waaaay too insipid for me, seriously,if i wanted to eat my food staring at a white washed wall, i would rather take away nd eat at home.

Sahib Sindh Sultan

Koramangala ,Bangalore
July 28, 2009 Rating
Sahib Sind Sultan serves decent food but someone needs to stop the chef from emptying whole cans of ghee/vanaspati onto every single dish. ambiance is really nice,with the whole train setting et all, but would i want to spend 600 buks on a single meal, err,not really. i would rather pay the same in samarkand nd get twice better stuff.

Viamilano

Koramangala 4th Block ,Bangalore
July 28, 2009 Rating
the thing i like abt Via Milano is that they have balanced the veg nd non-veg menu really well,so theres no question of either species feeling "left out". the booze selection at via milano was a downer nd imho, the sole chink their armor.

Sunny's

Lavelle Road ,Bangalore
July 28, 2009
you have to respect these guys for abstaining from the "indianizing" phenomenon which plagues the rest of continental/italian restaurants in the city, Sunny's Restautant has been around for ages nd the menu is sorta etched on the brains of locals,think tis time they revised it.other than that this place is a total must visit,

The Beach

Indira Nagar ,Bangalore
July 28, 2009
twas nice when they had the open air setting, now with the whole glass paneling,the beach wears the looks of a slickish torture chamber.

United Coffee House

Connaught Place ,Delhi
June 16, 2009
walked into United COffee House with major expectations nd for a change was not disappointed...the place wears a classy "art deco" english ambiance nd makes the place seem more expensive than it actually is...the food totally rocks..this place doensnt sideline veggies unlike other unimenu restos ...the best part is the price which comes to a measly 300-350 rs per head...

Cafe Uno

Connaught Place ,Delhi
June 16, 2009
this place scores massive brownie points for ambiance...sadly the food at Cafe Uno doenst match up...nd 2250 plus tax per head is waaaay toooo expensive

RPM Bar

Rajouri Garden ,Delhi
June 16, 2009
okayish kinds of pub/disc ...RPM has separate lounge nd dance areas which was a huge relief...they used to have this unlimited booze for 600 rs offer but think they did away with it....the interiors are the screamy red kinds which was ok fr me but my friends felt it was a tad too loud...

Urban Pind

Greater Kailash Part 1 ,Delhi
June 15, 2009
if you are into bollywood tracks then Urban Pinds is your kind of scene....they have three levels(all of which are packed on weekends)...the place has got a strange fixation with dark gloomy setting nd you get the whiff as soon as you step into the eerie candlelit stairways...

Shalom

Greater Kailash Part 1 ,Delhi
June 15, 2009
this place has got a really earthy/rustic feel to it thanx to the whitewashed walls nd wooden paneling ...the food at Shalom falls somewhere between okayish nd really good..try the veg mezze platter...good place to visit if you don't mind going back home with a really light wallet///

Sartoria Restaurant

Vasant Vihar ,Delhi
June 15, 2009
a slick little italian eatery is how how would describe the Sartoria...the thin crust pizza nd pastas are must try..the food was a little too bland for me(someone told me thats how Italian food is supposed to taste) nyways...the place is pretty expensive ..expect a wallet damage of 1700 rs+ for two

Angels In My Kitchen

Defence Colony ,Delhi
June 15, 2009
Angels in my kitchen is a dual leveled bakery/resto ...downstairs they serve coffee/cakes nd the works while upper level is where you can have lunch/dinner...the bottom level gets crowded sometimes so the best bet is take your coffee nd croissant upstairs nd snuggle into your fav fiction..

Sushi

Defence Colony ,Delhi
June 15, 2009
Moet's serves awesome mughlai fare...the ambiance is really tranquil nd perfect for a lazy sunday afternoon lunch...not too expenisive either...lunch for two would add to arnd 800 rs...improve the service nd i wuld b a regular at this place...

Sugar 'N' Spice

M.G Road ,Bangalore
June 12, 2009
well...what can i say ,a cup of coffee in this place is gonna make you poorer by 110+ rs!!!...and a small piece of cake is gonna cost another 100...but its the Taj ..wat do you expect...Sugar n Spice does offer a massive variety of desserts nd most of them though insanely priced, tastes really good...try the Brazilian blend cappuchino..

La Boulangerie Bakery

Sankey Road ,Bangalore
June 12, 2009
the exotic sounding name conjured up images of a quaint europeanish bakery with aromas of freshly baked pastries nd breads wafting around..sadly the La Boulangerie is just a cake display at the Le Meridien lobby...*sigh*

June 12, 2009
wears the perfect ambiance for a lazy sunday brunch....the la carte menu in Friends and Bacchus is kinda expensive but you can always settle for the buffet for just 360rs!!...they offer arnd 10 Starters, 6 Salads 30 Entrees nd 10 desserts..all for just 360 buks!!

June 12, 2009
Thom's is a supermarket bakery combo which stocks lotsa imported stuff...the pasteries in this place were okayish but this place has been around for quite some time now nd shopping here has sort of become a tradition...

Cookie Man

Koramangala ,Bangalore
June 12, 2009
Cookieman offers goodies which i don't think you will get anywhere else but the exclusivity comes at mind boggling price tagz!!..

Kalmane Koffee

Koramangala ,Bangalore
June 11, 2009
nyways about Kalamane Coffee Shop...this is the kind of place where you get great coffee minus the swankiness nd snobbishness ( obvious reference to Baristas nd CCDs) ...

Kalmane Koffee

Koramangala ,Bangalore
June 11, 2009
errr..umm...ahem... y exactly wuld you be leaving this comment in Kalmane Coffee Shop page when you have 10 Cafe Coffee Day pages in this site escapes my naive logic pattern...

June 11, 2009
this place used to get really crowded when they were located in MG road but after they shifted it has become quite unclasutrophobic...the interiors of Lake View Milk Bar are honest and simple ( reminds you of Koshy's) but they serve good food nd in my book that's wat really matters ( any dumb idiot can hire an expensive designer to make his place swanky)..but to make great food...thats truly an art

My Tea House

Banashankari 3rd Stage ,Bangalore
June 11, 2009
this place is quietly tucked away from the urban grind..whcih makes it a great haunt to just sit back, relax, grab a book nd sip on a cuppa..My Tea House has a lot of combo offers like you could get a cake and sandwich with Darjeeling tea which makes it quite economical..

Sweet Chariot Cafe

Koramangala 7th Block ,Bangalore
June 11, 2009
Sweet Chariot Cafe is one of those place which i would buy if had the money...they serve such great pasteries nd lasagnas but thier service totally sucks....even a Neolithic man with his limited intellectual skills would run this place better...

Daily Bread

J.P Nagar 3rd Phase ,Bangalore
June 11, 2009
this place serves a killer tiramisu gelato...the kind which would mop the floor with Mamma Mia nd the rest...well other than that Daily Bread is your average CCD clone albeit with a better ambiance..

June 11, 2009
this place has got a slick fashion lounge feel to it which i so adore...nd the DJ at this place truly rocks..thinks hes called DjIvAn or sumthin not sure...slams out some awsome trance, hip hop nd house numbers..Tuscan Verve also has a small(ok maybe tiny wuld be apporpriate) dance floor...

Cafe Terra

Koramangala 1st Block ,Bangalore
June 11, 2009
This place is bang opposite my apartment so i end up going there quite often even though i am not a big fan f thier ambiance....nd the Cafe Terra is probably the only place in Bangalore where you can grab an English breakfast...the waffles in this place is pretty famed but if they had only served it with maple syrup i would have been a lot happier....

Monsoon

M.G Road ,Bangalore
June 11, 2009
probably the best 24 hr coffee shop in Bangalore...i expected the place to b really expensive ,,,but lunch for two came to just 1500 rs ( which is less by bangalore standards) ...nd i recommend visiting the Monsoon for dinner or late night snacking coz thats when the ambiance is at its best...

June 11, 2009
Cha Bar serves around 50 different types of teas but my fav is the black darjeeling tea.. the place is on the second floor of the Leela Galleria( sort of an extension of the oxford bookstore) ...they serve lots of short eats like sandwitches nd pakoras but they are pricey...

The Egg Factory

St. Marks Road ,Bangalore
June 11, 2009
newbies will find it quite hard to get to this place..its tucked away in a small street..just keep looking on the right hand side after Dewaras... Egg Factory has a laid back and cozy ambiance which seems to be its USP... try the french omelets .. nd they have pure veg dishes too (without the egg)...

Toscano

Vittal Mallya Road ,Bangalore
June 11, 2009
Toscano has an impressive selection of wine selection...another great thing about this place is that tehy keep changing their menu frequently..tis like you are going to a new place every time...

Aiwas - Broast Chicken

HBR Layout ,Bangalore
June 10, 2009
this chicken in Aiwas has a strange taste to it...it tastes good but strange ..think it has something to do with the hifi frying mechanism these guys use...

Al-Bek

Rajaji Nagar 6th Block ,Bangalore
June 10, 2009
run by a family..this place is value for money type o joint...it gets really crowded so its best to get a takeaway...i liked the Al Bek Kebab Corner in R.T nagar the best...

The Rogue Elephant

Ulsoor ,Bangalore
June 10, 2009
well...err...ahem...Rogue Elephant refers to a wild , aggressive , lonely elephant...how they linked it to the cafe.. i am still wondering...the only connection i could make out was the image of Ganesha pasted on the wall..nyways, the food is okayish...the pricing is a little steep..expect to spend 300-350 per head....

June 10, 2009
Aiaynar is a really nice place to feast on awesome chettinad cuisine..for the uninitiated, chettinad is a village in tamil nadu famed for its spicy non veg dishes....you can eat your heart out for as little as 150 rs...

Vidyarthi Bhavan

Basavanagudi ,Bangalore
June 10, 2009
the filter coffee masala dosa in this Vidayarthi Bhavan is a lethal combo....the place tends to get packed in the evenings though...

Adyar Ananda Bhavan Sweets And Snacks

Indira Nagar ,Bangalore
June 9, 2009
extremely over hyped.....adayar ananda bhavan was once a fine place to grab a quick south indian bite but of late their quality has gone for a huge toss.... Krishna's cafe which is in the same price range offers a lot more bang for the buck..

June 9, 2009
the only place in bangalore which served paneer pasanda the way it should be...other than that, Aangan is your typical punjabi/n indian eatery in the city...

3 Storey's

Kasturba Road ,Bangalore
June 9, 2009
if you are even faintly into sea food then 3 story's is a must visit...they serve the best appams in the whole of Bangalore..soft,fluffy with a subtle tang...nd ya if you plan on occupying the third floor open terrace do reserve well in advance..the weekends get claustrophobically packed...a

Queen's Restaurant

Church Street ,Bangalore
June 9, 2009
Queens restaraunt is the place to hog on some sumptuous north indian fare..i think they are open only for lunch and dinner ...try the kadai paneer, mixed raita,chaats and veg biryani.

June 9, 2009
finally a pure veg haunt whcih serves Italian,Lebanese nd Mediterranean fares... Try their Mexican Nachos, Enchiladas , sizzlers and Baked Jacket potatoes. ...the ambiance is not great but the food more than makes up for it

Kabab Magic

Basavanagudi ,Bangalore
June 8, 2009
the place is always crowded alright but sadly the shavarma rolls i tasted, tasted pathetic...they use roomali roti instead of pita bread...nd the chicken pieces tasted all fatty nd gooey...youck!!

Liquid Lounge And Bar

Ulsoor ,Bangalore
June 8, 2009
set four stories above on an open air terrace,the Liquid is the only al fresco pub in the city.,..the bleak surroundings sort of robs the charm of the place but this place is definitely worth a visit...the drink tends to go down smoother when in a nonclasutrophobic ambiance and i guess thats y people so love these pubs with outdoor setting..the place is not cheap...expect a cover charge of at least 1000rs on weekends...

Hotel Studio Estique

Bund Garden Road ,PMC
June 8, 2009
there are far too less boutique hotels in pune and Studio Estique is an attempt to fill the void...the place is located at proximity to railway station (which btw is not such a great neighborhood), they charge 4000 rs fr a night, but it comes with free wi-fi, two free cocktails nd free ironing ...the view was disappointing though,,the only thing you see when you look out of the window is a similar window in the adjacent building..

Zen Restaurant

Shivaji Nagar ,PMC
June 8, 2009 Rating
.just standard indianized chinese fares here ...however, the Zen is a great value for money typo restaurant..

Yo! China

Chinchwad ,PCMC
June 8, 2009 Rating
the only thing palatable in Yo!China is the mo mo's ...give everything else the skip

Apache Lounge

Shivaji Nagar ,PMC
June 8, 2009 Rating
decent enough place...reasonable prices...but you will have to put up with teenie boppers(the place is bang opposite FC collge) ...Apache Lounge has a separate section for stags which makes it a popular hangout for girls ...

German Bakery

Koregaon Park ,PMC
June 8, 2009 Rating
awsome place...German Bakery is situated right next to the Osho Center and the place attracts the brown robed followers in hordes...the place is like the firangi meetup place in pune ...every time i go there its like the firangis are having a round table conference or something,,,the place is easy on the pocket nd their lemon tarts melts in the mouth...just that it gets really smoky nd often its not just cigarettes being smoked...

Arthur's Theme Restaurant

Koregaon Park ,PMC
June 8, 2009
the first time i went to this place, i was a bit confused..Why would a restaurant serving authentic french cuisine call itself Arthur's Theme..??..but after eating the food , you stop bothering about such irrelevance ..the best french restaurant in pune...the rustic decor compliments the food really well...the menu has all sorts of strange names which i don remember..just point your finger nd the waiter will bring it..rest assured it will be good..

Hard Rock Cafe

Worli ,Mumbai
June 5, 2009
i so totally adore this place, got the chance to go just once ..sad///Hard Rock Cafe in my opinion serves true American fare(not unlike tgif which tries to DESIfy everything)...hit the place before 9 pm as a horde rushes in afer that ...nd ya u'll have to put up with teenie boppers who who keep runnin around like total whacos ,tryin to headbang to sum dumb linkin park song..

Out Of The Blue

Khar West ,Mumbai
June 5, 2009 Rating
Out of the blue wears a chic ambiance and it has got some of the best continental/Mediterranean fares in Mumbai...the thing i really like about the place is the awsome seating arrangement...low tables which for a change doesn't force you to eat in an awkard posiiton...

Xtreme Sports Bar

Indira Nagar ,Bangalore
June 2, 2009
Xtreme Sports Bar is the place to be for beer and sports enthusiasts...the parking lot is really cramped so do drop in by 7!!

Pinxx

Dickenson Road ,Bangalore
June 2, 2009
anyone who loves the color pink(thankfully i dont) would love this place..they save segregated the places into different sections..lounges,indoor, outdoor and the works...they are open 24 hrs and is a great place to grab a bite after a night of partying...

Mocha

Lavelle Road ,Bangalore
June 1, 2009
great hangout place...nice decor.....exotic coffee...a staff which leaves you in peace...i have spent close to three hours in this place ordering just a caramel mocha and blueberry cheesecake :)..Cafe Mocha for me is the best coffee shop in bangalore

Cafe Goodluck

Deccan Gymkhana ,PMC
June 1, 2009
i used to frequent this place almost every day during my 2 yr stay in pune....the bun maska nd chai combo in this place is something to die for...its been around for like 30 yrs i guess and is sort of an institution in pune....Goodluck Cafe also serves authentic Iranian delicacies like khoresht ghormeh sabzi and , zereshk

Vision Cinemas

K.H Road ,Bangalore
June 1, 2009
located bang next to a cemetery..Vision Cinemas might not wear the appeal of the swanky PVRs nd Inoxs but they dont rip you off either...the major disappointment was the seating arrangement which ensured that the screen is blocked by at least 13 head silhouettes and backrests .......

China Pearl

Koramangala 6th Block ,Bangalore
June 1, 2009
China Pearl serves nice Indian-Chinese food...a great ambiance which unfortunately is ripped to shreds thanks to the crowd which just can't seem to enjoy their food in silence...thankfully they have a home delivery option,,,try the chicken dragon

Garuda Mall

Magrath Road ,Bangalore
June 1, 2009
Garuda Mall and Forum seem to be vying for the top spot when it comes to the most crowded place in the city...forum has a slight edge as of now....it's like the Times Square in NY...if you stay in this place long enough...you would end up meeting every single person living in bangalore..

Cafe Masala

Brigade Road ,Bangalore
June 1, 2009 Rating
The cafe masala in Brigade Road totally surpassed my expectation...i had been to the one in pune and it was one absolute disaster of an experience...the Navarathna kurma in this place totally rocks!! the buffet costs around rs 400 per head, not too steep considering the quality...

Harima

Residency Road ,Bangalore
June 1, 2009 Rating
Harim is probably the sole restaurant in the city where you can try out authentic Japanese food...the other is the Zen (in Leela Palace) which is horrendously expensive...and a little tip..if you dont know how to use the horse radish (wasabi) while eating the sushi kindly ask the people around...it is has an extremely strong flavor and you would end up with a burned nasal passage...

Orange Peel

Shivaji Nagar ,Bangalore
June 1, 2009
a great place whcih has a dual menu , for indian and continental...the cocktails had generous amounts of alcogol and...the ambiance is perfect for a quiet evening...i wouldn't recommend Orange Peel for friends/group gathering...

Rex Theatre

Brigade Road ,Bangalore
June 1, 2009
decent enough place for the price....don't expect top of the line sound or seating system ..rex theater is one place where you can catch a movie even at the end of the month.. when you are down to your last few currencies,,

Zaika

Koramangala ,Bangalore
June 1, 2009
not quite the place to hangout if you suffer from claustrophobia .. but the food is topnotch....this place is sort of a melting pot for various cuisines....they are pretty adept at Italian and Mexican dishes ...the Chinese fare was disappointing..

Styx Pub

M.G Road ,Bangalore
June 1, 2009 Rating
the sole pub in bangalore which plays downright heavy meta playlistsl...i couldn't make the connect between the fish tanks and the type of music being played....nd am scared that one of these days some bloke, amidst the headbanging frenzy might smash his skull into one of the tanks....strike out the weird decor nd everything else about this place rocks!!

Legends Of Rock

Koramangala 6th Block ,Bangalore
June 1, 2009 Rating
Legends of Rock got some of the best sound systems on board, the sole bummer is that the place is a bit cramped..they play classic rock/metal stuff the likes of Maiden,Sabbath and Dire Straits..expect only standing room during the weekends...the ambiance is okayish..the first level is a smoking zone..dont know of many pubs where you can puff away inside...

INOX

Magrath Road ,Bangalore
May 29, 2009
Inox is a tad expensive compared to PVR but it definitely justifies the higher price with better sound,seating and parking arrangements. The only thing i hate about the place is their obsession with pumping up the price whenever a highly anticipated release comes to town..be prepared to pay at least double the price if you are going for a big release.

Fun Cinemas

Cunningham Road ,Bangalore
May 29, 2009
Fun cinemas is a decent enough mini-multiplex featuring just three screens. The sole trouble with the place is that the lifts are forever cramped and the escalators are planned in such a way that you would end up roaming the entire floor before you reach the screens. This is a great place to go if you are a movie buff, for it offers a point system which you can redeem for snacks and tickets...

1498 A.D

Palace Road ,Bangalore
May 29, 2009
A great place to chill and lounge around... 1498 A.D offers no room for complaints with their sumptuous food and prompt service. The first thing that strikes you as enter this place is the chic and upmarket feel, thankfully its not one of those snooty ambiances which one comes across in many of the luxury hotel coffee shops... The pineapple halwa with its subtle tangy taste and the Tiramisu was a definitive treat..another must try is the Mississipi mud pie...one thing i still cant sort out is why they have put up a mural of Portuguese Goa in the entrance...last i heard, Vasco da Gama landed on the Malabar coast in 1498..

Brewhaha

Koramangala 5th Block ,Bangalore
May 29, 2009
A great place to hang out with out your friends.. the place is really slick and is a great place to while away the time with tons of board games. It is basically a community driven coffee lounge, a model which Barista tried to emulate and failed horribly. They had about 100 games and the prices are pretty reasonable, for 20 bucks you can play any number of games for an hour. ..the coffee is decent enough for the price..think they closed down recently..sad

Mynt

Race Course Road ,Bangalore
May 29, 2009
Mynt is set amidst lush gardens and is a great place to go crazy over Italian and Lebanese cuisine. The place is like forever crowded so if your planning to go on a weekend do book in advance. In spite of the pricey menu, the place attracts people in hordes, which speaks of the quality on offer.

Zen

HAL Airport Road ,Bangalore
May 29, 2009
the Zen is heaven on earth for anyone who swears by sushi, tempura and yakitori . The place offers an astonishing variety of Japanese and Singaporean delights and is a must try for oriental cuisine lovers. The ambiance is super chic and the service was was also prompt but i strongly suggest that nonlovers of oriental cuisine to skip this place.. and ya be prepared to shell out atleast 2k per head...

Pecos

Brigade Road ,Bangalore
May 29, 2009 Rating
An affiliate of the two-decade old Bangalore institution Pecos, Mojos is a great place to chill out without burning up your wallet. The chicken and dosa in this place is something to die for, and is sort of regarded as the best in the city or maybe even the country. Another signature item on the menu is the beef tacos was a tad chewy for my taste though. Mojos, unlike its older sibling which swears by classic rock , plays a lot of retro music. A word of caution, this is not the place to go for a quaint conversation as the music is so blaring loud that you can barely hear yourself, let alone the guy who sits next to you. Peace

i-Bar

M.G Road ,Bangalore
May 29, 2009
Hailed as the citys first lounge bar, the I-bar's sheer dynamism and energy hits you face first . The striking neon lights and the techno electric feel makes this is a perfspot for a Saturday night blast.
