“If you do what you love, it is the best way to relax”- Christian Louboutin
“All that she wants is another baaaby!” crooned the lead singer of “Ace of Base”. I, was already digging the reggae vibes and the ambiance just sealed the deal.
About The Terminus :
The Terminus, is your lounge bar where you can unwind after a hectic day over some finger foods & conversations about “the next big thing”. They serve an array of fusion food and quick bites. The cuisine is continental and Indian.
Decor & Ambiance :
The Terminus, is very reminiscent of an old English Pub and in a very uncanny way reminiscent of an English house. The colour schemes are done in the deep tan and brightened up with splotches of colour, here and there. The ambiance is relaxed and very soothing.
They have incorporated the use of local artisanal toys from Channapatna as a part of their food presentation, thereby supporting these artisans.
The staff are courteous, nimble and extremely efficient with their service. And that is what is, expected from them.
The Grub Story :
We had quite an array of dishes to relish and here is what, I sampled :
- Nachos (₹350/-) : The crispy nachos were just perfect with tossed sweet corn, tomatoes, onion & cheddar melt. The cheddar was doused quite generously.
- Chip ‘n’ Dip (₹350/-): I, still can’t get over this assortment. As simple as it sounds, I loved this so much. It had “Cajun Potato Wedges, Handcut Sweet Potato Chips & Tapioca Fritters with Chilli Aioli and Cream Cheese Dip”. Let me tell you, that this is a Must have! Highly recommended 👍🏻
- Vada Bao (₹500/-) : A fusion of the Vada Pau, where the replaces the Pau with the steamed Bao. A good combination for sure, but as i have low tolerance for spicy foods, this wasn’t something I ate more than a few bites.
Hargow (₹450/-) : The translucent skin of the dumplings, revealed water chestnuts, asparagus and shiitake mushrooms. This was the highlight of the evening for me. Made so delicately with just the most subtle hints of garlic, I would totally recommend this to everyone. BBQ Cheese Steaks (₹550/-) : It’s another one of those, yes I wanna go on eating dishes. The cottage cheese was so soft and completely melt in the mouth, with sizzling on a hot plate drizzled with BBQ sauce. They had a beautiful stuffed pimento, that was filled with cheese. Another Recommended dish. Rose Petal Kulfi (₹425/-) : An apt way to end the rendezvous, was with a rose petal kulfi. The kulfi had very muted tones of rose and was a delight to gorge on, but i really think the pricing can be worked upon.Verdict : The place is a great for a quick rendezvous with friends or family. The food is as good as it can get. They try to offer you a fusion of cuisines without being over the top about it. I love the fact, that they are in the process of encouraging local artisans and their presentations are totally “Instagram worthy”. If you live or work in the vicinity, please do check the place out. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
