Amazing… I am speechless.

Food is a luxury when you are a Bachelor who is not too much in to cooking. It may not matter you much on a week day if you are provided with a decent cuisine at your office cafeteria or if you have a dubba wala providing you with food. But, its on the weekends that you really start realizing the importance of good food. That’s when you really miss your mom’s rotis, chapatis, curries etc.

After living in Bangalore for four years I visited BJN Group’s, Cafe Masala for the first time recently. And I really regreted not having been there before. I was introduced to the place for the first time by a very special friend of mine and I thank her for that. The restaurant is located in Eva Mall, Brigade Road. The ambience of the place might not be exquisite but I quite enjoyed the open air spaces. But, the real show stopper is the food served at the place and the service provided by the support staff.

The food is served as a full course buffet, starting with a varieties of Kababs and soups in vegetarian and non-vegetarian. I personally prefer red meat and fish but, there is always something for everyone. I was also impressed by this tandoori platter of fruits. For people who like lighter food there are vegetarian and non-vegetarian salads. For the main course you have you have a variety of North Indian dishes, again satisfying taste buds of vegetarians and non-vegetarians. There is a wide variety of Indian chats as well. But, make sure you are not over filling your self because the best is saved for the last. An amazing variety of sweets which includes pastries, rabdis, chocolate fountain, fruit salads, ice creams etc. etc. Also, if you want to wine while you dine, you have the option of ordering a drink from a pretty decent selection, but the drinks will be charged outside the buffet. And all this comes at a reasonable price of Rs. 450/- plus taxes. Not bad considering the amount food you are going to gorge on a single visit.  And while you are enjoying your meal the waiters and other support staff are really friendly and always serve you with a smile.

Enough of reading now, just go to Cafe Masala and experience the feeling of a sumptuous buffet yourself. You can visit the website here.
