CITY HARBOUR


Yesterday was my brother-in-law and my cousin brother's birthday and we celebrated it over a dinner at a multicuisine restaurant on the outer ring road in Marathahalli called 'The Harbour'.

The first thing that strikes you is the real sailing boat placed in the front of the restaurant. (I later read in an article that the boat was brought all the way from Karwar). As soon as you enter the hotel, you get to see a lighthouse. There are no floorings, only sand (the sands were also brought all the way from Karwar beach). The sound of the roaring waves which play incessantly on the surrounding sound system made us feel as if we were at the seashore. There are seating indoor as well as outdoor. Indoors is nothing but with a roof top, with hurricane lamps hanging from roofs and the walls have posters of different sailing vessels with a brief note on each of them. I could not read them as we were in mood of celebration.

The menu card has a large variety of items consisting of Indian, Goan, mangolorean, chinese cuisine. We all had a tough time deciding what to order. Some of the names went like Naked Fish fry, egg drop soup, hakka chilli chicken, Xacuti Chicken, and lot of other items. We ordered a variety of dishes like chicken wanton soup, fish tandoori, chicken hyderabadi, paratha, naan, oolta tava paratha, and the others I dont remember the names :-).

The harbour is not so much about the food as an evening out - you can go a long drive, have fun and have good food.

The Harbour at # 54/7, Devarabisanahalli, Marathahalli Outer Ring Road, Bangalore 560078. Or call 32925544/32934041.

I, more than participating in the treat, I would have n'joyed taking stills of every nook of the HARBOUR! because it sounds good the way you have described it.

Veg items were there but I felt that that they were more into sea-food and other non-veg items. And regarding taking snaps..you can plan for giving me a treat on your birthday or any other day so that I will enjoy the food and u can take snaps.:-)
