RUH - Sarjapur Road

RUH - Restaurants & Bar
Location: Sarjapur Road, Bangalore

We planned for a sudden dinner at RUH which is close by our residence, The time we entered the high hopes started being questioned. Dirty pathway,  No proper reception or waiting area. But it all did get changed once we entered the resto, Something just passed my mind  -" Ahhh this is such an romantic and cozy place to be "

Amazing decor and arrangement, this eat out is mainly for people who wanna spend hours being cozy and entirely dedicating time to one another or family.. We got the Swing seater table which was unique yet so comfy, Ambiance just takes all your attention if your there for the first time. There is a small area were the table is surrounded by water and golden chandlers, red curtains. then we have few tents with the large table which is mainly for a large family or a group and the flooring is filled with sand and stones.


The main draw back with the place is the taste of the food, i would rate the food about 2.5 out of 5, the service is as slow as tortoise race. We finally had a Hukka as the feeling of hunger was getting on our nerves. later the evening we found that the restaurant is knows for its slow service & not so tasty food.

RUH is for those groups or couples who wanna spend quality time with no one disturbing and with a romantic ambiance.

And wrap it around paneer.

Khana with a Twist

Khana with a Twist

Good Food becomes more tastier when its plated in a more artistic way. You can also say the presentation of food makes it more tempting., presentation is every bit as important as flavor.

Here is a link to explain you this in a much similar way Food Presentation 

Dal with Twist
 The above is one of the example for food presentation, i am sure you can be more artistic than me. A simple dish turned tempting and "exotic" (word my hubby used). Plating of food is more an artistic way of putting ur thoughts out. try and be as amazing as possible. Do have different kinda plates, Specially the white once which are elegant. We also do get different colored bowls which can be used for plating up, think out of the box as to what can you give the dish a twist which can make it more and more tastier. 

Do let me know if you have any ideas or questions.
