Bangalore has the right mix of restaurants that caters to all type of food enthusiasts and every other day, you have a new restaurant/lounge opening in Bangalore and Indiranagar being the hot favorite for restaurant joints. Loft 38 is one of them and just such as short span of time, it has pretty much established as one of the much happening places in Bangalore since its launch 6 month ago.I have been waiting to visit this place and was glad to be invited to try out the offerings and the experience of this restaurant.
As my office was close by, have always seen LOFT 38 with people waiting in queues to get in over the weekends.The exterior appearance gives it a nice charm with its elevated roof.The entrance also has a small sit-out for the smoking section.It was an mid week(Wednesday) when we arrived and the interiors were pretty warm with high lights dangling from the roof and bright streaks of pink and red setting the perfect scene for a perfect dinner.
The Restaurant has 3 levels with each floor having a typical kind of ambiance and seating and with 2 DJ consoles overlooking it.We were seated on the 3rd floor and the waitress were courteous and helping us with the tables.We met General Manager of LOFT 38 and Chef Sajosh Peetayil who gave us the insights and the concept of LOFT 38 and their spread.
As you all know,Being a vegetarian, I had asked them to offer me wither signature Veg delicacies and to start with,
First to come to our table was the cheese garlic bread which was just cheesilicous with oodles of cheese.Loved the taste,though added a few pounds more.
Next came the Mezze Platter, which is one of my favourites. It had Hummus, Babagnoush, Tzatziki, Falafel, Marinated Olives, Kidney Bean Salad, Syrian fattoush, pita and crackers. A perfect dish for a veggie like me and i literally gobbled it.
The third starter we had was Veg Skewer with baby corn, mushroom and bell peppers.It was a but spicy but liked the juice of mushrooms in it.
The last of the veg starter was Spicy falafel which was made up of deep fried falafel with taratore and home baked pita pockets.
The next starter was the non veg dish which is Thai grilled mackerel which is made of fresh mackerel fillets marinated with tumeric,galangal,lemon grass and grilled.
Moving on to the main course, we were first served with Eggplant Pamigiana, which is a baked dish with Eggplant and parmesan cheese,very cheesy and tasted more like Parmesan.
Next, we ordered for a pasta based dish, penne pasta, which had mushrooms and was made of white sauce which is my favorite.
Last but not the least, the desserts, we were served with a Chocolate,Raisins and Rum fondant which gave me a chocolate rush and the Philadelphia cheese cake. Though i was stuffed till the brim.Still made space for the desserts and that was just worth it.
To sum it up.Loved the experience ,the decor and the food.perfect to the T.Just try to get early during the weekends as it can get packed being an popular place in town.A must visit place if you love good music with dance flour and good food.
