Had been to Elements in Benson Town and absolutely loved the food. Barring a Lamb Mexicano, which tasted gross, everthing else we ordered tasted yummy; economical too.

This isnt related to Bangalore but Pizza Hut. I happened to order their pasta 'creamy chicken alfredo' . This is the worst pasta I have ever eaten. The single most vile aspect in that pasta was its bitter taste. What a waste of money.

A little hard on the pocket, and not exactly in either East or South Bangalore - The Rim Naam at the Oberoi at MG Road rocks for outstanding Thai food.

For Thai/Malay resto's, Check out these,

1. Phileas Hogg, in Marathahalli - AMAZING THAI FOOD
2. On the Edge, in MG Rd -13th Floor and open terrace, Order Yellow Thai Curry and Fettuccini in Porcini Sauce, good flavor
3. Aroy - JP nagar (AS MENTIONED by fellow BHPian)


THE BEST I have tasted so far other than these above,

Rim Naam @ Oberoi & BENJRONG

I have been to this place regularly. Off late, in my last 2 visits in past 1 month, they show some sign of decline in quality/taste/service. I have seen that trend in other places before, and generally in 6 months from this signs, they shut down. I hope they pull up their socks, because I liked the place.

Another recommended place for Thai would be (east/south B'lore) Magnolia, at 80' road Koramangala, it is above Reliance fresh, on first left when you enter 80' rd from Sarjapur road side.

Recently, I had been to Via Milano, next to Sony World Junction, Koramangala.

Though Burrp doesn't have good to say about them, I had some great food there -- nice bruschetta and a tasty Bavarian style pizza. The only let down was the orange creme brulee which turned out to be a little too hard. Overall 3/5.

Try Ranoosh in Shanti Nagar. On KH Road going from Lalbagh towards Richmond Road, just beside the start of the fly-over, just beside a hotel called Golden Pavillion or something. Genuine stuff - cooks are Lebanese, I think. Amazing falafel, done just right. And garlic labneh! Moderate prices, VFM.

How is this place? Any advice on whats and what nots? We like pastas, steak, sizzlers.

A three course meal comes to roughly 1000 per person. So you could say a little expensive!

There is a Lebanese restaurant in Forum Value Mall Whitefield.

I have not tried, so no comments about authenticity or pricing :-)

The ambience is good. The waiters are polite. I like the chicken filled mushroom (starter), prawn gambroni and seafood pasta. But I've observed that the quality is not consistent. Once I was thoroughly disappointed, when the seafood was not fresh and pasta was overcooked, and although I had asked for Penne, they had served a mix of Penne (which was authentic pasta) and elbow (which was probably Bambino or MTR).

I found the sizzler just average. Nothing to make it stand out.

I've never had steak :(

For the veggies in East Bangalore:
Had been to Good Luck on Jeevan Bima Nagar main road (near 9th main, Opp. Indiranagar Cambridge/Miranda school).
Good Thali with Rajashthani, Gujrathi and Maharashtrian dishes. VFM and clean place.
