Simplistic and yet graceful ambiance, comfortable seating, smiling faces, beautiful artifacts and just the right amount of light makes Harvey‘s a preferred destination for a family dine out.
We went there in a group of 4adults and 2kids. Though I prefer not to take the kids along to a fine dining place, yet this one couldn’t have been avoided. Having decided to keep the guilt aside, I asked for a high chair, since that is the only thing which keeps my kids occupied and not run around! Unfortunately they had none! I would have quickly labeled it as non child-friendly had it not been for the friendly staff who spoke to the kids and tried to keep them entertained!!
Another downside was one of the orders arriving too late. But that could have been overlooked considering what great time we had there!
What do two best friends need when they are hungry and have loads to talk about?
You guessed it!
and Good place to have a leisurely and uninterrupted chat!
And that is exactly what we enjoyed on Tuesday! After checking out various ‘known’ places on 100ft road, Indiranagar, we finally found New Shanthi Sagar, a vegetarian eating joint on CMH road (, Indiranagar, Bangalore). And boy were we delighted and proud of our choice (which by the way was one of the two options available at 10:00 am on a weekday!). So engrossed were we in the hot and delicious idly-wada with coconut chutney and sambhar , that we forgot to take pictures!! Oh and I haven’t even gotten to the yummilicious (I know it’s not a dictionary word, but it most certainly is my state of mind!) Kesari bhat!
As for ambiance, I would recommend their AC Hall. The prices differ only slightly from their non-AC hall, but it is much more comfortable, less noisy, less intrusive and you are treated like a king! The waiters are polite and know their job well.
And food! Oh the wonderful food!! I am not a big foodie.. But I can still go on and on about the soft and freshly prepared idly and crispy wadas! Add to that the non stop chatter of two friends pouring their heart (and wild ideas) out – and the combination is deadly!!
Overall, I give the restaurant 3 of 5 points for a weekday breakfast (or brunch if that is what you have time/inclination for).
