Restaurant Reviews – Chinese and Italian


Over the last one month I ate in two diametrically opposite kinds of Italian restaurants.

Little Italy on 100 ft road Indiranagar is vegetarian, has a lounge, serves drinks and has great varieties in everything from Antipasti to Desserts. A meal for three with a drink came close to Rs. 1000. Great ambience, and seating !

Cafe Piri Piri on Kammanahalli Main Road, Kalyan Nagar is more like a cafe, does not serve liquor, has functional seating, a severely truncated menu, but their pasta and piece de resistance, Chicken Piri Piri are awesome ! Salads were a little short on the wow factor. But the wow factor was firmly with the expense. Cost of meal for three came to under Rs 300 ! Is that value for money or what?

Also checked out Mainland China on Church Street (parallel to MG Road) on a Saturday evening ! It was a bad idea…even though we had booked a table at 8 pm…the service was snail-fully slow !

But the food more than made up for it…we had Chicken Wonton Soup, Bar-be-qued fish, Chicken Sui Mai (steamed dumplings), Chicken Hakka noodles and Honey glazed lemon chicken.
One-word review: Awesome ! As you can see we are chicken freaks ! 🙂 Damages were close to Rs 800…but worth it, even with the delays in service !
