Sushi to biryani, pastas to cold stone ice creams – the multi-cuisine buffet formula gets even bigger
Soho St., the multi-cuisine restaurant in Koramangala, takes its name from the famous London district presenting a selection of ‘global’ cuisine. The first impression of the place is one of spacious, no expense spared interiors with open kitchens and seemingly endless food counters practically running into each other.
They have a liquor license still in the pipeline, so we settled for mocktails that the enthusiastic bartender shakes up to your taste – sweet, sour, fruity or with a spicy kick.
Appetisers come to your table in quick succession but settle down and pace yourself. We nibbled on tender pieces of dhania
chicken and tandoori paneer – both faultless with the chicken juicy and the paneer perfectly soft.
We learned later that one of the sous chefs was poached from Delhi and takes his Punjabi fare very seriously. It certainly reflected in the tandoor section from the tangdi chicken which I found a tad too spicy to the rogan josh, butter chicken and perfectly done rotis and creamy dal makani.
For a change of pace, try their Oriental section. They have crab and vegetarian sushi, dimsum and satay skewers. The wasabi was a bit too mild for my taste although the dimsum (chicken, prawn and vegetable) was light and delicate, and the chicken satay was nicely smothered in a crunchy peanut sauce.
After a short break, we decided to check out the sprawling buffet table. The pasta station, shawarma rolls and the concessions to Euro food like Spanish chicken and fish orly did look intriguing but we decided to skip them for fear of going into a food coma.
Kids will have fun at the dessert station with its stacks of brownies, jellies, and fresh fruit with scoops of ice-cream dished out over a cold stone and lashings of chocolate chips, chocolate sauce and bits of gulab jamoon to give it an interesting twist. Cotton candy and chocolate fountains are also on offer.
Lunch and dinner from Monday through Thursday is `575+ and Friday through Sunday is `675+. At Hosur Main Road.
