Haven't stayed here, so can't comment about the rooms. The outdoor bar rocks on weekends

Here is where I saw one of the finest example of desi ingenuity, how do you make space for tables when your whole restaurant is a shack propped on the sidewalk. Well here is what they do, first pop the hood of your car, take an empty bottle of coke and stick it into the space behind the radiator. Lower the hood down, spread some old news papers on it and voila you have a stand up table to enjoy all the divine food they serve.

If dinner is what you are after, then ask for a table upstairs. The bar downstairs turns into a mosh pit by 11pm on weekends

you should visit this place just for the open space and the verdant expanse of green in the midst of Mumbai. Food is just about OK. Note that you go on a race day they will ask you to park your mobile with a valet before you enter, which actually might be a good a enough reason to go there.

you have to have a drink on the outdoor deck in the evening, amazing place. This is right on top of the hotel and the whole city is spread out at your feet

very interesting place, worth a visit if you are in that part of town. The restaurant feels al fresco, except it is enclosed in a mall. Food is pretty good, quick service, great place for a business lunch.

excellent food, stay away from the Indian menu unless you are in country for the first time. Nicely spread out, great wine selection and awesome service

One more addition to the Italian rest. scene in Bangalore. went there before they had their alcohol license, food is good, nice outdoor seating for, service needs to improve a bit though

don't plan on having a long leisurely meal here, though. The chairs are made of granite blocks, literally.

want to go to 13th floor, but tired of the conversation drowning noise, then you might want to check out Vayu. Cool outdoor lounge, with OK music, they charge an entry cover on weekend nights. There are a couple of restaurants attached to the place, think it is memories of china and masala bay- spice something

Where do you go on a Sat eve, if you feel like watching "Banlieue 13", "Y tu mama tambien", "Nine Queens" or "Motorcycle Diaries" or any other independent / foreign flick. Habitat is the place, what started eons ago as the go to place for that hard to get import music has spread its wings into video rentals. The really awesome part is that they stock only original dvd's. Tad expensive at Rs.100 to Rs.80 per rental, but worth every bit.

don't miss the karaoke nights here, nice outdoor seating area. Call ahead to reserve a table, place gets crowded very fast

May 21, 2008
Pretty decent service and response time. Need to be more forthcoming and clear with the customer about the process upfront (i.e things like customs clearance, associated charges etc. ) than raise them up incrementally

October 22, 2007
Have used them for curtains, furnishings, covers etc. They come home and take all the measurements, they are also hooked into all the good fabric stores in town. So, all you need to do is go to one of these stores select the fabric you like and they take care of the rest, including picking up the fabric from the store and then coming home and mounting the curtains. Ask for Harish, you will have to chase him a bit though

Good pediatrician, recommend him. He has always been accessible when ever we needed him, either in person or on the phone. Also can decipher US medical records and maintain the vaccination schedule which was a big question for us when we moved back.

This is the perfect answer for those weekend's, when you want to get the children out and you don't want to do an other round of the malls, movies, Mc'D's. They have a well stocked children's library, and you can keep the books for as long as you wish. They also conduct a impressive range of group activities on the weekends, which include storytelling, clay modeling, painting, puppetry's classes. Most of these activities tend to be topical for example for the Ganesh festival my three year old got to paint his own Ganesha and take it home.

October 21, 2007
the phrase which comes to mind is "mile wide, inch deep" if current best sellers is what you are after then this is the place. The coffee shop is nice. The really cool part of this place is the children's area, where you can introduce your child to the pleasures of reading. They also have storytelling and other activities for children on the weekends. Call ahead and check, it does tend to get crowded with kids during those times.

awesome food, great service. Wish the place was a lil more spread out.....

Only place I know of where you can get freshly baked baguette, ciabatta and focaccia in Bangalore, and they home deliver. They also have an in-house formaggiaio aka. cheese maker, who whips up some interesting variations on mozzarella. If you are ever in a mood to cook up some pizza or get adventurous with lasagna at home, this is place to start shopping from.
