Get Swadesi @ Swadh Desi
This review is also available on burrp!
I’m in complete consensus with what foodyfoodpecker has to say on Swadh Desi. This brand new restaurant under the “S” Group of Hotel (S stands for Shravanthi Shelters), is a huge building tucked amidst the mini forest area in the small bylane of J P Nagar. Its on the same road as that of ICFAI Business School. A few officials were in white T-Shirt and Blue Jeans. One of those guys received us near the gate and directed us inside.
As we enter, we could notice a huge lobby with reception on the right hand side, waiting lobby on the left and a big earthen pot filled with water and fresh flowers placed on the way. We’d booked a table for two and a young lady, very courteous and pleasing (little more than required – she asked me how was my day and what I did since morning!) directed us towards our table. The tables and chairs were huge and the settee was cushiony and comfortable.
The interior was mughlai type with the color combination of white and off-white. We ordered Kingfisher Beer and Eristoff Vodka (Drinks are expensive here :( ) and Bharwa Shimla Mirch for starter. Each bite of this starter was delicious and left us wanting for more. I’ve tried it in other places but, this one was the best till date.
For the main course, we ordered the Ulte Tawa Paratha (mix of besan and wheat flour and made in tawa instead of tandoor) and Khasta roti (made of rava and was crispy) with Subzi Tawa Masala. They all had new flavors and were delightful! We dint want to overload ourselves. Hence did not order rice. There’s always a next time :)
Now, that I’ve liked it so much, we’ll surely come back.
For the desserts, we ordered Attishi Shirni. It was jalebi stuffed with apple and dipped in sugar syrup and rum with topping for Rabdi :) My craving for sweets kept me craving for more. This one was too tempting to avoid. Meal for two would cost you around Rs.1000/- (inclusive of VAT and service tax). One could head here to savor the Lucknowi, Awadhi and Mughlai cuisine and walk back with complete satisfaction
Swadh Desi is located @ S Hotel, 60, 13th Cross, 2nd Main, JP Nagar, Bangalore
