Karthik, you may have to change the meeting location after yesterday's incident opposite Columbia asia. Would suggest to meet about 200-300 metres earlier than that signal, that is just before the Lake ends. There is enough parking space.

The previous meet as well I had suggested the same. Better meeting place will be after the Kodigehalli signal. In fact all of us met at Swathi Gardenia last time and the location is peaceful.

Esteem mall is literally clogged at 9pm these days.

I may come in with wife and 1.8yrs old kid.
Decision pending as to when we both return from work and whether she has energy left to join me.

If I don't have any calls I will make it for this one. In fact, I drove to Decathlon and Indian Paratha Company only yesterday night with family but wouldn't mind to join for this tonight. For now, I am adding my name as Tentative but will mostly make it.

I stay near Esteem Mall and since you guys are starting from Hebbal, It would be a crime to turn a blind eye to fellow bhpians. Adding me to the list. Has the meeting point finalized?

I am burping Aloo Cheese Paratha and Parathazza from yesterday's Dinner at the same joint along with a mug full of Patiala Lassi .

Let me see if I can have dinner today or just give you folks a company.

And yes, they are a veggie joint with around 10 varieties of Parathas and equal number of Parathazzas. The best bet for beverage is the Lassi as the Chaas served yesterday night was super spicy (not that I don't like but my wife was struggling!!).

Looking forward for the meet!

Also, shall we finalize the meeting point as few meters after Hebbal fly over to avoid the rush near to Esteem mall ?

Say we meet here at 09:00 PM?

I realise that the location you shared in the post is just below the Hebbal Flyover.

This is certainly not a good choice considering loads of trucks taking a Right Turn below the Hebbal Flyover and driving towards Hyderabad. And now we have a new U-Turn almost exactly at the location that you have mentioned with narrow sections too.

Not to forget today is Friday and we will have more buses (Private) taking the ORR to reach Esteem Mall.

Ideal location would be this. Even parking on the service road opposite to Esteem mall is not a viable option considering the traffic during this time, Loads of Cabbies waiting and private cars dropping Airport/Hyderabad passengers.

Swati Gardenia worked out very well last time. Ample parking on the service lane, very less traffic.

If the concern is that we won't be atop KIAL if we did this, then the answer is that we can be atop KIAL Flyover in under 2 minutes from here as all the signals barring Batrayanapura all the way till you climb KIAL after Yelahanka Fork are turned off at this time.

Directions:

-From Hebbal Flyover, irrespective of whether approaching from ORR or Mekhri Circle, do not take the KIAL Elevated road after Esteem mall

-Stay left and take the service road just where the KIAL elevated road starts

-Head about 150-200 meter straight after the first Traffic Signal (Kodigehalli) on the service road where this Restaurant is located (Swati Gardenia) from where we can all Drive/Ride to IPC.
