Taco Bell India

Let me know if you liked the Tacos.
I still haven't! Why? Is it not good? I've got mixed reviews about the food there.

Crunchy Taco Chicken had some chicken minces and usual salad.. The outer part tastes just like Papad! Costs i think Rs.26

Valcano Taco Chicken is same but the papad like thing is spicy, just like Mangalore style spicy papad. Costs RS. 36 or so...

In Desserts, I tried chocodilla. It was like a two day old roti filled with chocolate.

Taste was just okay types. But the normal Bengaluru janta will surely not like it.

You better try eating Nachos and Burritos.

The chocodilla is a Taco Bell take on Chocolate crepe.

It isnt great. It's very mediocre but for me, the taste of chocolate makes up for it.

The Tacos, as others have mentioned, is very ordinary.

The burritos and the Nachos though are extremely good. The Nachos are still jus ok, but the Burritos are really really nice. It's obvious that the food isnt 100% authentic Mexican, but it's still very nice.

Not like it?? I had to stand in a queue which extended outside the doors, both for placing my order and for collecting it. And it was not even a weekend.

I agree with your other comments though.

Looks like Bangalore folks have fallen in love with Mexican food. I had tough time pronouncing Burrito correctly. My Colombian friend used to laugh whenever I tell burrito.

Is this the one with lot of light decorations and chicken/fish kababs kept on display? Do not remember seeing the name 'Richie' there.

Been to Taco bell joint in Mantri mall on Monday Night and even @ 10-00 pm found people standing in long Q. The food has similarity to Masala papad & kaati rolls. Soft drinks (free refill) didnot taste like regular ones.
