Bangalore Express

leave a comment »

The Bangalore Express is a contemporary Indian restaurant in London with a very warm ‘Bangalorean’ ambiance so to speak, well Bangalore isn’t really the Garden City anymore. But, the concept behind the interiors is based on the concept of Bangalore – Garden City  and Express – Indian Railways.

Entrance is not too exciting, the restaurant sits on 103-105 Waterloo Road, with a few tables outside. But once you enter the restaurant it is a whole other world. The chaotic lines criss crossing over shades of green blending in with the timbers and furniture, gives it a urban-earthy feel.

Like the railway sleepers they have a scaffolding with a dining area on the top level. The customers sit in their little berth, crammed in for a more private conversation. Their menu offers a wide range of North Indian Food. Yes, i don’t understand how it makes sense at all.

This space is all about romanticizing India- Bangalore – Indian Railways. The language is clear – chaotic lines, earthy contemporary colours and crammed spaces between railways berth scaffolding. But the type of food offered is just disappointing.
