Magnolia at Koramangala, Bangalore

Magnolia is a warm and cosy restaurant located in one of the by lanes of Koramangala, next to BDA complex, in Bangalore. It started sometime in late 2002, when I used to live in Koramangala. As their launch pamphlets came to my house, I ordered food to experiment, like the food and it became one of my favorite places to order my dinner. Thanks to them, I could easily sit across television and enjoy my meals. In fact this is a big advantage for Koramangala residents, almost all the restaurants in the vicinity, and there are tons of them, send you food at home if you are not in a mood to step out.

A few days back, I had an old friend and colleague visiting me from Pune and we happen to go to Magnolia for Dinner, the experience was great. Good food and great ambiance. It is located an old bungalow converted into restaurant and the charm of old building adds to the ambiance. Interiors have been done very tastefully. What I liked was the right amount of lighting that was neither too harsh and nor too soft to make you feel sleepy. Complimenting this perfect ambiance was the soothing music. Being slightly in the interior lanes of Koramangala, parking is not an issue, though there is no formal parking place.

What do they serve? Well, for that you will have to visit them and check out their latest menu.

Price wise they are expensive but not prohibitively expensive. You can go there once in a while without hitting your wallet much.
