I went to Barbeque Nation in JP Nagar around 3 months back. Never got chance to write about my experience there. So, I thought why not do it today as I don't have much work at work :)
Since, I stay at Bannerghetta Rd, BBQ Nation at JP Nagar was the best option for me. I haven't been to any other one in Bangalore. I went to BBQ nation cause one of my colleage recommended it to me.
The first time I went without booking my table I was told to wait for 45 mins!! Me and my hubby didn't have the patience to wait that long so, we decided to leave and come some other day with proper arrangements. The place is always crowded and its better to book your table. I really liked the ambience and decor of the place. Its all wooden and the temperature is pretty low there which I enjoyed a lot after they had put the grill infront of me. Its a buffet and you can eat unlimited for Rs.450+ taxes.
The restaurant has a great concept of real-time grilling :) You have 2 grills on your table where you can grill your items and marinate them with variety of dressings they provide. They served around 5 varietied of veg and non-veg starters. I was very excited by putting them on grill and seeing them being cooked :) The waiters keep serving you starters till you ask them to stop. They have a flag which is placed upright, once you are done with the starters you need to bend it over at a 90 degree angle which means, im done with this round.
I would like to remind you that by the time you reach the main course you will be too full to try anything else. The buffet has various food items like:
* veg/non-veg soup
* Bread Sticks and Buns
* A spread of 6 odd salads, such as macaroni salad, potato & Peanut salad, etc I really like the curd rice they keep in the salad section. Its just too good.
* 3 non-veg dishes
* 3 veg dishes
* one continental dish
I know a lot to eat when you have eaten so much of starters and you have to eat the desserts too!!
The desserts section has around 5 items:
* Mango Souffle
* Miniature Gulab Jamuns
* Vanilla Ice cream with chocolate sauce and nuts
* Vanilla Tarts/pasteries
* Fruit salad
* Phirni in cute lil pots.
By the time you reach the desserts section you are too full.
Well, I tasted a bit of everything in maincourse and didn't like the non-veg dishes at all. They were just too bland and watery. I even mentioned it to their chef that they should improve on non-veg Indian dishes. The continental and veg dishes were good. I liked the pasta too. Biryani is pretty good and a must try.
I wanted to try everything in desserts too but, I was too full by then. But, I did try to taste all of it. I didn't like the phirni. I strategised that next time I come to BBQ I am gonna have only starters and jump straight to desserts :)
