Curry and Dosas, Ascendas Mall, ITPL

Random Musings Restaurants

Ascendas Mall at ITPL Bangalore was opened recently, and was curious to visit this mall. They have good shops and more popular brands are opening their stores soon. Accessibility to the mall is easy and they have a good parking lot.

Curry and Dosas is a restaurant located in the 3rd Floor of the mall. What  I could get from their menu is that they serve affordable dosas and different curries. That’s the only information I can get, as we were not allowed to enter the restaurant – the reason – it is closed. And the time was 9pm on a weekend.

What was more surprising is the attitude of the person who introduced himself as the owner of the place. He was so rude, and was so arrogant in his way of handling customers. He was so rude in telling us that it is his decision to close the restaurant when he wants, and no one has any rights to ask him.

If you are opening a  restaurant in a new mall, you should be prepared to handle crowds on a weekend. It is obvious that there will be lot of visitors to any new mall which is opening. This kind of attitude is going to leave a very negative feedback. With the kind of argument I had with the owner, I am sure I am not going to visit Curry and Dosa and would advise anyone visiting Curry and Dosa to be prepared for such rude behavior.

Lunch at MTR, Forum Value Mall


We decided to try the famous South Indian Lunch at MTR. The visit was in the list of to-visit-restaurants for a long time, finally it happened on 15th Jan. We reached there by 12:30, which I thought was a bit early for lunch, but on a hind sight, it was the right time, as the restaurant, located in the 1st floor of Forum Value Mall, Whitefield was getting a bit crowded by 1:00pm.

We preferred to sit inside. They do have tables laid out in the terrace. Only South Indian lunch was available, and we have to procure coupon from the cashier. Cost on weekends is Rs. 200/- for adults, and Rs. 100/- for kids. It is Rs. 180/- on weekdays, and on further enquiry, found that on weekends, there are 4 extra dishes.

Dinner at Silver Metro Restaurant


My cousins had visited this place in Madivala and were really impressed with the food and ambience there and had praised the restaurant so much that I was waiting desperately to visit this place. And to my surprise, my cousins took us all for dinner there last week. True to their words, the place is really good.

To begin with – we took their dinner buffet. It costs around Rs. 350/- on a weekday night. The range of food was too much. Starting with soups, range of salads , we moved on to the starters. I really enjoyed the Tandoori Fish fry and the Chicken fry. There was so much variety, that I really got confused on what to taste. I ended up with some rotis, Rara Mutton curry and Hyderabadi Dum Biryani. Did try a bit of pasta and also their noodles. And to wind up, tried a bit of pasteries and fresh fruits. Altogether, really good.

Ambience – The place is designed as a metro train. Atleast, this gives us Bangaloreans a feel of what life is going to be once Metro comes to Bangalore. Luckily, we  got a place to sit inside the Metro section. It was bit crowded, as we were there right at the peak dinner time. Kids enjoyed the feel of sitting inside a metro train and having dinner.

Surprise was that when we came out, there was the lovely kulfi counter. Couldn’t resist, and ended up having a Kulfi.

I really wished I had taken my camera to take some snaps, but managed to get one picture of it from the net to post it on this site. Now we are planning to visit again, maybe next week, and wanted to dry their dinner buffet with unlimited beer. I guess the price is around Rs. 500/- (Not sure).

Silver metro is located at 3rd floor of Total Mall at Madivala, Bangalore.
