Following a successful opening in Waterloo, the latest Bangalore can be found in the City, opposite Leadenhall Market. It epitomises the fresh and funky attitude of the South Indian city after which it is named, offering a range of light and delicious fare that's wonderfully wholesome.<br/><br/>Contemporary and exciting, this smart, open-plan venue spreads over two floors yet maintains a feeling of intimacy throughout. The ground floor has a lively bar perfect for after-work drinks and bites, whilst the downstairs restaurant is a personal setting suitable for friends, couples or business people. Stretch out in the intimacy of the booths and take time to appreciate the modern sheen of the decor; it's a look that sets this restaurant apart from many of its Indian contemporaries.<br/><br/>The menu is innovative, informal and flexible; whether you're part of a large group or just enjoying your own company, there will be something to suit. Why not try the lamb meatballs in tempered mint yoghurt, or chicken tikka supreme marinated in sweet red chillies and roasted in the tandoor? All the dishes at Bangalore are aesthetically stunning and, needless to say, delicious. Prices are very reasonable, the service faultless and the facilities fantastic.<br/><br/>While the menu is prepared by award winning chef Yogesh Datta, usually synonymous with upmarket and fine-dining Indian cuisine, it offers good value and has a strong following from a young, trendy clientele.

The food is overall pretty good. The lamb spinach curry main is my favourite and is actually very good. Prices are also okay.

The reason why this restaurant gets only 2 stars is because of the poor service. Upon entering we were seated downstairs. In the room next to us they were having a party event. It was very noisy and we had to ask to move several times before they actually did.

Meh.. I've had better. The service was good, but the food was bland. I got a lamb jalfrezi, it wasn't hot and the lamb was over cooked. The spinach and tofu tasted dry and the squid started was chewy.

Glad this was on a tastecard otherwise I would have dropped the rating even more. It's not worth it at full price. With so many other Indian options around I suggest you give this one a miss.more

With all the indian restaurants in London, it's important to pick the right one. They can range from freaking-spectacular-better-than-you-can-find-in-india to why-did-I-waste-my-time-here. This rating may seem harsh but what I'm really saying is "Meh, I've experienced better". The sauces were not very flavorful. The chicken wasn't as tender as it could have been, the service was not very good....more

Overall, good atmosphere and welcome.

The food is good, and, for a change, there is a large variety of curries (from Afghan to Burmese to East African...), which is great !!!

The one thing that put us off (and that lowers the grade I'm giving now), is the service : one person in our party found some plastic in the salad.

The waitress took it away, and seemed shocked, but didn't...more

We came here upon recommendation as I was seeking some East or Southern Indian food that didn't turn into Bangladeshi Indian food. Can you tell I am an Indian food snob? Yes I like my curries.

Tucked in an ally, this place has a romantic modern feel to it. Service was amazing. I started with the poppadoms and chutneys. I can't tell you which chutney I liked best so I will probably have to go...more
