Soho St. Review | Koramangala


Soho St. Review, Koramangala, Bangalore 

Bangalore offered us a great climate from the very beginning but when it came to food the offering was even better!

We have tried out many fine dining restaurants, but one fine day I was in the mood to HOG (:P). I persuaded Priyanjana as well. The plan was to attack any restaurant which was offering a buffet. We had a light breakfast and we were on the hunt. With the help of our best friend Zomato, we discovered this place located just near to The Forum Mall in Koramangala. We enquired about the menu and it sounded pretty impressive.

Thus, we decided to go forward with our plan! We entered into the restaurant and the ambiance left us stupefied!
The space was huge and the tables were very well spaced and organised, topped with fine dim lighting and in the centre one can actually see the food being prepared!

The first 5 minutes was a big thumbs up! Next we were served and greeted by a very decent, well behaved and courteous waiter. After this we decided “Bring It On!!”

So, the feast started:

The opener was a mint mojito! The best we had had in a long time ! Every sip of it seemed to tickle our taste buds and increase our urge to gorge :P. Along with the mojito came the starters. The pictures give only an indication of how awesome they were but believe me, the taste was unparalleled!

There was the shredded chicken kebab, mutton kebab, prawn kebab and the fish kebab. All the four preparations were so tasty, that we actually lost count of how many times we asked them to serve! (They definitely thought they shouldn’t have allowed us in the first place ;)). The chicken and the mutton had a smoky flavour, whereas the prawns and the fish were a little sweet, thanks to honey I guess. But nonetheless, it rocked!

But wait, I forgot! There was more!—chicken Banjara kebab, fish tikka and chicken tengri kebabs!! Oh the joy, the bliss, the excitement and we behaved like absolute gluttons!

You think it is done?? Think again ;)
Prawn, Lamb and Chicken momo’s! The white one was prawn, the yellow one chicken and the red one was lamb! Even writing this down makes me want to go there again, seriously!

Now, the starters are almost done, just a couple more :D
This one is my favourite, but many might not like it—crab meat sushi! Along with this there were little bite sized chicken shawarma rolls, which we both didn’t like very much.

I wish I had 1 more mojito, but too much greed is bad right!

*There were 2 counters as well*-- Live pasta and Kolkata rolls counter! We customized our pasta, with loads of mushrooms, baby corn and black olives, but there was nothing special about it. You can get that anywhere! The Kolkata rolls had too much mustard in them and the taste was not good at all! I do not like wasting food, but I had to waste half of the roll.

Now, the main course and the desserts:  The main course included mutton rogan josh,  , chicken biriyani, and a preparation of fish. We did not have much on the main course, but we tasted everything and they were good but nothing special.

Desserts were like the starters: variety, colourful and tasty.

Gulab jamuns, Baskin and Robbins ice cream, caramel pudding, mixed fruit custard, brownies, fresh cut fruits, litchi pastry and pineapple pastry.

The gulab jamuns were fresh, soft and delicious. B&R ice cream is B&R ice cream :P. The pudding was equally good. It was smooth and without any lumps. The brownies were iced and with chocolate sauce and it was pure bliss of course! I had as many brownies as my age I guess :D. Finally, the pastries were good, but there is nothing special to mention about them.

Overall the best items were:
1)      The Momos
2)     Chicken Glass noodles soup ( I am not a big fan of soups but Priyanjana had around 4 bowls of soup with different types of bread)
3)      The kebab starters(all of them)
4)      The tengri kebab
5)      The Mojito
6)      The Sushi
7)      Mutton rogan josh and the fish main course
8)      Brownies, gulab jamuns and the pudding.

The experience was just amazing with all the lovely varieties of food, the cosy ambiance and the excellent grade of service. Summing up, We had a lot of buffets in the past—BarBQ nation, flame n grills and others, but SOHO ST, stands out because of the variety of dishes and the peculiar but mouth watering taste of its dishes.

Now time for the marks :-

Food - 4.5/5
Quantity - C'mon, it was a Buffet! 
Ambiance - 4/5 ( They said they have live music, but they didn't )
Service - 5/5 
Cleanliness - 5/5 

Hope this review will inspire a true foodie :P! Cheers! And of course, Bon Apetit!
