“Most people are ignorant, what is the language of painting. You know they are ignorant. It is so difficult to make them aware, but time will teach them” – M.F.Hussain
M.F Hussain, the Picasso of India has rightly said that people around are mostly ignorant of the language of painting and this restaurant tries to educate people about Hussain’s style of painting, with the perfect accompaniment-some truly delicious multi-cuisine delights.
You’ll be surprised, but the restaurant is this artistic legend’s house that has been converted into a restaurant complete with the famous red letter box outside that was painted by the legend himself a couple of years ago.The decor is beautiful, his paintings have been replicated to adorn the walls of the restaurant. The lighting is perfect, however, I found the seating to be a little cramped on the first floor.
The food is a mix of Indian, Coastal specialties and Pan Asian delicacies, I find the combination to be a little bizarre though. My recommendation would be to stick to their Indian menu, I absolutely loved every dish that I tried. Drinks were alright, the usual, Bloody Mary, Pincolada, Mojito, there was nothing unique about their drink options. Coming to starters, my favorite was the Hara Bhara Kebab, lip-smacking combination of spinach and cashews, one of the best veg starters I’ve tried in a long time.
The highlight of the evening was the Murg Lalwari Kebab.Tender chicken stuffed with spinach and cheese, it was a true delight, it simply melts in your mouth. The combination of chicken, spinach and cheese is simply heavenly. The prawn ghee roast was great too, fresh prawns coated in a pungent flavorful masala. For mains we had an assortment of Indian Naans with some Kofta, which was simply out of this world, the creaminess of the was exceptional. The desserts didn’t really live upto my expectations and it was a bit of a disappointment, so I would suggest you head somewhere else for dessert.
Overall a great place to enjoy some delicious food, the ambiance is nice in the open and considering this place is located in the heart of Koramangala, it’s definitely a must try, especially for all the art lovers out there.
