Restaurant Review: The London Curry House, Bangalore

I'm kickstarting this year's blogging journey with a post that is dedicated to the homeland. I just got back from a marvellous holiday to India and I am still sensing that deep-rooted melancholic tug that irrevocably binds me to everything and everyone back home. The vibrant colors at every nook and corner, the benevolent climate of the hometown, the comfort of home, the food lovingly prepared by mum and MIL, the familiar roads, the warmth in the smiles of the people I've grown up around and seeing the number of people who willingly and gladly entertain my children for hours on end is what I miss most of all. Of course, there are two sides to every coin and there are aspects of the homeland that I don't miss at all but keeping in mind the sentiment behind this post, I'm not going there okay? 😛

Since my last visit, I've been on a quest to explore the dining scene in Bangalore. Almost every year it so happens that our annual visits to the city coincide with a cascade of family events and social visits that  don't leave us with that much quality time to spend at my in-laws home and thus we shy away from any opportunity to checkout the city (and with the horrendous traffic, it becomes the easier choice to stay home!). Being a Mysore girl, I've not been to that many restaurants in Bangalore so the foodie in me thought it was high time I started. I am aware that it is a daunting challenge given how many food establishments there are in the bustling metropolitan and the rapid pace at which the foodscape is evolving. The classic restaurants, the chic eating spots, the gastro pubs, the fine dining establishments, the trendy urban cafes and the street food - I want in on all the grub the city has to offer! I decided to start slow and first cover the areas closer to home. Thus far, I've found a few places I like already - Samarkand, Sattvam, The Higher Taste, Toscano and The London Curry House to name a few.

The LCH was suggested to me by a family member. Located at the heart of West Bangalore, this vegetarian restaurant serves modern Indian cuisine with a twist. I was quite surprised to know that it is a vegetarian restaurant because judging by the name, I assumed otherwise.

The interior is earthy and rustic with pops of color to make the space appear more interesting. The artwork on the walls and show pieces depict iconic London structures such as the London telephone booth, double decker bus, Big Ben, London Eye and more. I liked the lamp posts and greenery that have been incorporated into the decor.

The ambience at the LCH is casual and relaxed.

We arrived at the restaurant quite early on a weekday afternoon and so there were only 2-3 tables occupied. It gave me a great opportunity to take some pics. Fast forward to an hour later, as we were getting ready to leave, the restaurant was bursting at the seams! Based on my observation, I would advise you to make a reservation especially it you are planning to head down over the weekend.
