SquareMeal Review of Bangalore Express

From modish ‘Indian tapas' and lunch boxes to pick-and-mix main courses, City-smart Bangalore Express is clearly trying to move with the times, and its cavernous, labyrinthine ground floor feels more like a modernist drinking den with its ‘fierce music and air-con, hard surfaces and vortices', plus cocktails and regular live DJs. Upstairs is more sedate (think rich woods, intimate booths and a wine library), although the food maintains its trendy stance. Foot-long dosas with ‘clashing' sauces arrive on square plates, and the kitchen breaks borders for Burmese khauk-swe chicken with thick egg noodles or East African curried goat with rice, sweet potatoes and fried plantain chips. Otherwise, keep it familiar with chicken korma or a lamb curry spiked with super-hot naga chillis. To drink, high-value wines are alternatives to bottles of Cobra and Kingfisher beer.

two of my party of 5 meals were under cooked the check was rubbery and bright pink. when we asked the waiter over to complain and get them changed we was greeted with a rude and unprofessional matter. told that must have been the only one then stirring the food. once explained no matter what part of the chicken it is, it shouldn't be bright red. we were then offered not to day service charge. o say this was an awful experience is an understatement.

Interesting variety of food. We had different styles at our table and all were consistently good. Service was responsive. We ate quite early but the restaurant was still quite busy.
