Kobe Sizzlers, Bangalore

This review is for the restaurant in Indira Nagar.
We are based in Chennai and we visited Bangalore for a couple of days and stepped in to try this restaurant on one of the days for dinner.
We were four and were with another family of three. So getting a table for seven was the biggest challenge. It took us about 25 minutes to get a table. Well, again, we spotted this and suddenly decided to drop in. We didnt have prior reservation, so probably wouldnt be so bad otherwise, but with 2 kids, it was definitely a struggle.
After getting the table, the service was not very quick. I understand sizzlers take time, but it could have been faster. We were too tired and hungry and each one was so focussed on their plate that we hardly spoke to each other until we ate a little.
The food was quite good, not worth complaining. I have had sizzlers just a few times earlier and I am not an expert to comment on this, but it tasted good and we were happy 🙂
Ultimately had a nice evening with family and I would definitely recommend this !
Tip: Not sure if reservation is available, if so, please book a table in advance.

Bolgen & Moi Tjuvholmen, Oslo

We had been to this restaurant with office colleagues after completion of our project, so obviously a company-sponsored dinner. 🙂
Nice place, good ambience, expensive though.
Since I would eat only chicken (thats my preference by choice), the waiter was kind to agree to customize some dish on the menu with “only” chicken. That was good.
Had a few beers and a dessert (mango sorbet..or it was called something like that) and it was ok too.
The chef happened to be from Hungary, and was friends with a couple of our colleagues from Hungary too. So it was a surprise meeting for them ! 🙂

Overall a wonderful dining experience.

Stayed here with family for a night on 13 Jan 2012.
Got delayed and reached around 18:00 hrs, wherein I could have checked in around noon. Check in formalities were normal. Enquired with the concerned person if I can get a delayed check out around 16:00 the next day and the answer was a pleasing NO 🙂 However he was kind to offer the use of facilities like Swimming pool, etc until 16:00 free of charge.
Spent sometime around and went to the restaurant for dinner. The buffet Spread was ok, food was tasty, the bar was well-stocked.
Room was comfortable, but was slightly far away from the restaurant. Ask for a room closer if you have elders with you.
Next day morning, had a good view of sunrise, used the Swimming pool (opens only at 07:00). Kids loved it.
The breakfast was good, restaurant nice and airy, but the nuisance that the crows cause spoils the mood. At one point it came so close to the table that the kids were frightened. So had to opt to move inside the AC restaurant. The play area for kids was good.
Overall, the place is good for a weekend break.
