Food is not bad but there's no wow taste at all. It is ok for regular eat out joint but not when you want some special food.

I stopped going there since a few months. Service went down and food quality started varying from each visit. Lost consistency.

Recently came across a list of great places in South Bangalore that also mentioned New Modern Hotel (NMH), VV Puram. Hadn't been there in years so decided on an evening of dinner hopping at VV Puram

Tried the Dosas at NMH, it was excellent and for a change the chutney, sambar were like home made stuff with salt just right in fact a tad less unlike the highly spicy & salty stuff we get in most places. The Dosas did not have garlic nor the red chutney inside and still tasted heavenly! This is surely a place that is a blast from the past.
We then headed to the VV Puram food street for some Corn masala and Badam milk to satiate the taste buds

Try Punjab Grill at Koramangala, the food is good. Is is a little expensive though.

I have been to Punjabi Times opposite Shopper's stop on Bannerghatta Road about an year ago. Food was just average and isn't worth the price.

Thinking more on this, I agree. There is no 'wow factor'. It is more of a 'safe option' where you know you'll not be totally disappointed. I do like their Rabdi with Lychee dessert

Typically now a days, any place I go to, I come away with the feeling 'That was not really worth it'. And some of these have excellent reviews. Couple of recent examples

Fisherman's Wharf, Sarjapur Road: Great reviews, always crowded. Found it frightfully expensive and most of the dishes were pretty average. The worst was a sorry mocktail with a fancy name costing ~Rs 300 served in a small sized glass and was just a mix of various fruit essences.

Hole in the Wall, Koramangala: Again excellent reviews, took the trouble of going early on a Sunday morning and came away disappointed.

Maybe I have weird tastes

Punjabi times used to be my safe option when nothing else is around till I was told about Tadka Singh Indiranagar.

Once a week at Tadka Singh is now guaranteed.

Tadka Singh is like a modern Dhaba. Mcdonalds style self service but punjabi food. Prices are not cheap and menu has very limited options for both veg and non veg but the quality is food is superb. Things can get chaotic on weekends when there is a crowd but the food is well worth it.

Esplanade at Indiranagar double road was the eatery of choice today for tonight's dinner (with a not so hidden agenda of satiating a sudden craving for Bengali cuisine) and it didnt disappoint. The fish fry was fried just right with the crust crispy and the innards soft and moist; it was also accompanied by the traditional 'kasundi' which could have been a tad more fiery though.

The kasha mangsho I thought was a tad too sweet but the chunky mutton bits compensated. The deshi murgir jhal evoked the archetypal trip down memory lane, it was done just the way the bird is treated in calcutta kitchens. Both were nicely wrapped up in fluffy luchis and tucked away into my grateful tummy!

I take back my comment on Punjabi Times being a safe option. Had been there with my parents last week assuming it would be decent enough. But none of us enjoyed it. Even my parents did not like it at all. So it is permanently off the list

Went to Rajdhani, central mall over the weekend. Everything, right from getting a seat to service was good except for food. Really pathetic food which lacked any taste. Even the desserts lacked sweetness.Will give it a miss from now on.

Please suggest any good sweetshop preferably near Marathalli / HSR / Whitefield where we can get authentic Dharwad pedha.

The Glasshouse Deli, Lavelle road.

Wanted to have some good continental food, so narrowed down on this place using Zomato.

We really loved the ambience of the place as we entered. And the menu looked very interesting as well. The Deli counter with all the desserts looked incredibly delicious.

We ordered a 5 Spice chicken wings, Fish and chips and 2 portions of the Crumb Fried Chicken Supremes. The chicken wings were exceptional! Quantity is a little less on both the starters but we've come to expect this from such fine dining places! The fish and chips is something different. It consists of small balls of fish fried and served on a cracker with a small dollop of tartare sauce. Unfortunately, I don't have any pics of that. It is nothing like the traditional fish and chips you might expect.

The main course consisted of one BBQ chicken, one Teriyaki Chicken pizza, Vegetable Stew, Whole wheat spaghetti with extra virgin olive oil, cilli, garlic and sundered tomatoes and a Pasta (penne) in white sauce with chicken.

The BBQ chicken was superb. The chicken was quite soft and made beautifully. The Pizza was the star. It was the best dish on our table. Next time, we are definitely trying the pizza. The Vegetable stew was good but nothing exceptional. The spaghetti was also extremely good and had a lot of chicken pieces. The white sauce pasta was usual but tasty.

For dessert, we had the Strawberry Tart which was quite superb.

I definitely will be going back here sometime soon. The entire bill came to about 4k for 5 people which was along expected lines. It's not a cheap restaurant by any means but it isn't meant to be!

Service was extraordinary as well and we really enjoyed the attention of the entire team. The chef met us at the end and handed over his card as well.

Default Chettinad Food

My family likes Chettinad food and our usual place is Junior Kuppanna.Recently we head about this place Chettinad Food palace next to AB at Marathahalli.

Had chicken biriyani and it was the Typical Dindigul Biriyani one would see at Ponram Hotels.

The place is new and is almost a Week old, hope they will keep up the quality in the long run.

I am sure you must have visited Anjapar in koramangala? Check it out if you haven't since they also serve good chettinad dishes. I sincerely felt quality of food at their koramangala outlet is much superior to any of their outlets in Chennai or rest of TN.
