Are you referring to Savoury?

Savoury deals more with a touch of Arabic and Keralite cuisine mixed in, rather than being an exclusive Kerala joint.

I am taking some folks down to Hosur tomorrow morning and we should be headed back to Bangalore around lunch-time.
Any recommendations for good lunch buffet options on Hosur Road?
Continental/Meditarranean cuisine preferred but multi-cuisine is fine too.
Not in EC, but on main Hosur Road. Lot of new joints seems to have come up but am not familiar as I use the flyover normally.

You can try E-Inn. It is on a turning from Hosur road just after EC flyover gets down (going from silk board direction). They have a, decent wide spread of multi-cuisine lunch buffet; Quite economical too.

I agree with both of the above. :-)

E-inn is pure veg but the food is really good.

Keys please don't go near that place. Had a bad stomach after a team lunch there.

Can some suggest me a place where you can get some good paranthas? I have been to the Parantha Plaza in Sanjay Nagar. Any other place you recommend?

Had I not spotted the shop, I would have really gone to CBI Road. Went there on Friday evening, and got some Gondhoraj lemon and potol. He only had rohu and katla, but I was not in a mood for those.

The shop, and the Shell bunk, are on Bellary Road proper (yes, that's the one that goes via Mekhri Circle and Hebbal to Yelahanka and BIAL). CBI Road is at right angles to it, just before the CBI campus on Bellary Road if coming from Hebbal side.

Oops sorry for the mistake in the name. Usually the auto guy tells its cbi road but thats Bellary road. And yes the cbi road is at right angles.

And better to go in the morning. All freshly unloaded stock. If he has given you his card you can call him and tell your requirements.

Regards.

So, after going through lots of reviews on the internet, I along with my wife went to Koshy's at St. Marks Road, and ordered Fish & Chips. To my horror, it was the worst ever meal I have ever had in Bangalore. The fish was devoid of any flavor - it was bland, and smelled of some poor quality oil in which it was fried.

Even the chips that came along with it were bad. Also, tried the chicken sandwich, which was again not at all worth.

Friends, my recommendation will be to avoid this place.

Anyone has tried Wildspice?

Its a Coorgi restaurant with quite a bit of pork & chicken coorgi styled dishes. I read about it in the Sunday TOI so need to go and visit, but before visiting wanted to check if any Tbhpians have tried it.

Poor you! The last time I tried chicken sandwich there, it had one-legged lettuce (would be praising it if I called it limp) in it, and was served with crisps (chips, not the American kind). Their sambar is usually deadly, though - idli-vada-dosa is perhaps the better thing to order. And traditional pot tea and coffee.

I always thought one doesn't go to Koshy's to eat - only to gawk and chat. Especially if one is the khadi kurta + jhola type.
