I don’t know about you, but when I eat out, I do not like to be served itty-bitty portions that get over before you know it. If food is good, it should be plentiful. It’s even better if I can load my plate myself! And this is where buffet restaurants come in. If you are in Bangalore, this is where you can go for a hearty meal:
Must-try dishes: Paneer Achari Tikka, Dim Sums, Sushi
Diverse cuisines under one roof – that’s what makes Soho St. popular among buffet lovers. The London-inspired décor theme lends a nice, elegant ambience to the restaurant. But perhaps you will barely be noticing it as you try to decide what to eat from the extensive spread and dig into European, Asian, and Indian fare. There is a live grill too.
Must-try dishes: Fish Tikka, Biryani, Halwa
It may not be as old as some of the other names around, but Holy Flames is a strong contender on the list of best buffet restaurants in the city. From salads and soups to delectable desserts, everything you need for a memorable meal is here. Chaat lovers are also in for a treat at this restaurant. When you can finally look up from your plate, enjoy views of the pool. Make a trip to the poolside wish grill to complete the experience.
Must-try dishes: Everything!
A trendy pub with lots of beer, a fun vibe, and a delectable buffet spread at pocket-friendly prices – this is the stuff of dreams. Sizzling Street is where you need to go for the buffet lunch, and you can enjoy live grills and barbeque buffet coupled with a drink of your choice. If unlimited quantities are what you love, head here post 7 pm and you can have as much food and drinks as you can consume (either mocktails or beer).
Must-try dishes: Raw Mango Steamed Fish, Mutton Cooked with Sour Leaf Masala, Elaneer Payasam
BonSouth is paradise for lovers of good south Indian-style food from all the different states. Warning! At first look, you are going to want to eat it all! Since nobody’s stopping you, tuck into a wide range of Malayali dishes, Biryani, and delectable desserts among other stuff. The variety of pickles only make the experience more authentic. Bon Appétit!
The Brew and Barbeque
Must-try dishes: Barbeque Chicken, Lemon Grilled Fish, Wheat Beer
As the name implies, beer is paramount here. But along with an excellent microbrewery, The Brew and Barbeque is a good choice for a buffet meal too. Take your time trying to decide among the tempting barbecued items, or simply go for a little of each! If you plan to go there for lunch with your colleagues, the Corporate Barbeque Buffet will surely make you happy. After all, you get to indulge in a free craft beer.
Sultans of Spice
Must-try dishes: Fruit Salad, Chaat, Lehsooni Dal, Jalebi
Like the name, the food here is also regal-themed. Dine like the Indian sultans used to and also get to sample the street food of Kabul – now isn’t that an interesting buffet? From Kebabs to Biryani and Phirni, the dishes here will leave you feeling full and happy. If you like your food accompanied by liquor, they have that option too.
