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.

under cooked chicked

Aug 2016

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.

    Quiet eating :: Quiet Eating Bangalore Express

    Predictability leads to boredom. Well for me at least. That’s why I seemingly torture myself by gambling on my selection of eatery. It adds a bit of spice to life. Sometimes, literally. So that’s the short story of how I ended up at Bangalore express. I set out to prove that I’m not dull and lifeless.

    The Hedonist :: The Hedonist Bangalore Express

    Bangalore Express is the City outpost of Chef-Patron Yogesh Datta, also proprietor of the award-winning fine dining Indian restaurant The Painted Heron in Chelsea. Sitting opposite Leadenhall Market the restaurant has an exciting looking new menu slanted at the busy City crowd and I have been invited to review. There are some intriguing elements including Indo-Chinese dishes such as Chilli Squid and Lollipop Chicken, a “Build Your Own Curry Plate Matrix” , Skinny Curry Plates and an Indian Breakfast Menu.

    This food blog gig isn&t too bad. Write articles every week, get mocked by colleagues and friends alike and don&t make any money. Sounds good doesn&t it?
    Every so often I get lucky enough to be invited out for dinner and last week I went to Bangalore Express, a restaurant by Yogesh Datta.
