Checked out Woodstock (Double road, Indiranagar) last weekend for dinner. Though I live near this place, never visited it before, I somehow associated the place more with the coffee shop there.. Liked most of the items we tried except the Buffalo wings which to me was a little rubbery. Liked their salt and pepper corn and the Pepper rice with Prawns Sizzler. Cost: 3k for a group of 5 , guess it was par for the course.
Seating is a little cramped, but otherwise liked the ambiance.

Can someone suggest a good Thai/Malay restaurant please (east/south bangalore)?

Check out Aroy, J P Nagar.

Good food and a choice between indoor and outdoor seating.

+1 to Aiel's input here. We have ordered home delivery from this place and the food is very good.

You could try Mugen on 100ft Road, Indiranagar. It's alright.

There was a place on the top-floor of Sigma Mall, I can't quite recall the name, but they served the best clay-pot rice in Bangalore! I absolutely loved that place. But it seems to have shut-down. Damnit, I'm racking my brains here for the name!

Other options would be Shiro in UB City which is EXCELLENT, but expensive.

Bamboo Shoots on Museum Road. Ginseng at the Royal Orchid hotel near Manipal Hospital/Diamond-District/KGA on Airport Road. Never tried this place though.

@ Nikhil

Would you fancy a quick-meat sometime soon.

Thanks Suhaas. I have tried Mugen and Ginseng. I feel they are alright, just as you described. Somehow they are not the "Thai", I was hoping them to be. Will try the other two and the Aroy suggested by Aiel and Fauji.

Guys need urgent help

We have a team outing planned and I want to take the guys to TorQ karting track before heading for dinner. Is there any good place around Marathahalli for buffet dinner? INR600-700/person w/o drinks.

I think the place you are referring to is Moti Mahal. As far as I know, its a Delhi based chain serving north Indian non veg food, something like Sikandar or Copper Chimney.

Nope, that's not it. It was Thai restaurant, not a North Indian one. I've been to Moti Mahal in Lido Mall.

Is clay pot rice a Thai dish? Apologies for ignorance, but it sounded like some cousin of dum biryani served in a sealed cay pot

Lol! Yup you could say that!

It's a South East Asian dish.

We Indians have our own version of clay-pot rice, and it's called 'dum-biryani'

Jokes apart, clay-pot rice and dum-biryani have their similarities in terms of the process of cooking, I believe. The meat in the clay-pot is not thoroughly mixed, and the flavours of the chicken/prawn/mushroom etc are let to soak through the rice, along with the flavour of the pot that it is cooked in. Oh, my mouth is watering as I type this out. *drool*

Sweet man I also find the entire process of slow (or dum style) cooking to be fascinating. It s blend of the eatable objects inside the pot, as well as the flavour of the smoked clay itself (to a minor extent of course). Pretty awesome.

I had been to Coastal Junction @ Indira Nagar yesterday for lunch and ordered the following (SILVERWOOD+2)

Nitha Kori aka Chicken Ghee Roast:This was a disaster, too much of ghee.
Goan Fish Roast:This was awesome and very spicy.
Mutton Stew:Very average dish but the mutton was very tender
Appam & Malabar Paratha-Business as usual.
Coke-4 No's.

The tariff is on the higher side for this setup.

Total Damages:Rs 1100 with 15% discount on HDFC CC.

Will i go back to this place-NO

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I had been to Fish & Spice @ Coles Road,Frazer Town for dinner last evening & ordered the following.(SILVERWOOD+1)

Pomfret Masala Fry:Absolutely delectable, Loved it lots.
Daal Kolhapuri:Very good
Butter Naan:Very bad, i don't understand how could a restaurant screw up something basic as butter naan.
Jeera Rice:Very good.

Total Damages-Rs 600 with 10% discount.

Total VFM restaurant, will go back again for the awesome Pomfret.
