I’ve tried the other 2 restaurants that belong to The Solitaire Hotel and liked it. Specially loved everything @ The Nawab. Wanted to try Bean Here for quite a while now. And my wait was over recently. Accompanied a friend who was going there. As usual I was all excited to try yet another restaurant.
As you enter the lobby, you’d find Bean Here on the right hand side. It’s brightly lit, with circular false roofing, the lamp shade falling from the same giving more of a corporate dining look. The ambience was calm and quiet with light music in the background. The waiters were helpful and courteous.
This restaurant is open 24/7 and serves the buffet anytime. They also have fresh midnight buffet on Saturdays and Sundays.
We checked on the buffet spread and the a la carte menu as well. The buffet seemed to be more interested so, opted for the same. The welcome drink was litchi sharbat and vanilla milkshake. Both were not all that great! Then there was one veg and non-veg soup. We opted for the veg clear soup.
All the above, along with the starter was served on to the table. There was only one starter (veg and non-veg) and that was extremely tasty.
For the main course there was the usual rotis, naan, kulchas etc with dry subzis and gravies. The chef was making fresh kichdi with dollops of ghee and its thoughts is still mouth watering! The salads were around 5 types and each one was better than the other.
There was corn pulav with dal and raita, murgh biryani, mutton sheek kabab, rice and rasam (tamil type), flat noodles and thai gravy. And ofcourse different breads and buns with cheese and butter and other ingredient mix.
Not to miss, there was ofcourse curd rice :)
The dessert had a decent spread. The moong dal halwa though tasted good wasn’t ground well. In addition there was chocolate mousse cake, cheese cake, blue berry and banana pastry, white forest and fruit cake.
The icecreams were nothing special. It was plain vanilla, strawberry, chocolate and pista flavor. I was too full to try it out and the ice cream spread was nothing too special to miss!
Buffet dinner is Rs.249+taxes per head.
For corporate team lunch / dinner, this place seem to be apt
Bean Here is located @ The Solitaire Hotel, #3, Kumara Park, Bangalore
