Chomp! Chomp! Chomp!

Moos your Daddy and two cans of coke.
'Nuff Said.

I Adore the thulp 400gm Cheese Burger, it is medium rare, with just enough veggies to complement the patty and not so much that you have to search for the meat. The cheese is all melty and just adds to the flavor.

The ambiance is just right, with board games and a light buzz of conversation on the nearby tables. Perfect place for a sinful Saturday afternoon 'snack' :p

The Incredible Thulp! Make my order!

Great Customer Service - Good Food

Sunday evening while driving back home I stepped in for a take away with my family. I ordered a beef burger, chicken sandwich and buffalo wings - an order value of Approx Rs 500. We have eaten there before and to keep my daughter busy my wife went to pick up some books from the book rack. In the meanwhile the person waiting our table came with a plate of fries and told me "Sir some thing for the baby" with a smile on his face. My daughter loves fries and this just made her evening cheerful. We were very touched with the gesture and the fact that without asking for it they felt the need to share and do that extra bit for us. And yes we got our share of fries in the Burger and the Chicken sandwich and it was not extracted from those portions :) This is the first time I have seen such service at a local restaurant. I rate them 5 stars because they are unique with their food and service with a human touch.

Thulpped!

The place is just awesome to hangout with friends. Right from the ambience, the interior design and the table layout everything seemed perfect.

After reading reviews, I ordered the Moo burger with bacon and cheese without even looking into the menu and I must say that it is the best burger I had in Bangalore. The burger had a very good portion. The salad was delicious and the french fries was average.

The beef burger is a MUST try for all the meat lovers. The only drawback is the service. They take a lot of time and I think due to the that my appetite grew heavy and I was able to finish the burger :P

Regarding the price, it is slightly on the higher side but the taste did justice to it.
They also had books and few board games. Definitely interesting!

Cafe Thulp is HIGHLY recommended and would definitely comeback.

800g beef burger :)

Only once you leave Bangalore do you realize that Bangalore is one of the very very few places who do justice to their beef.

Reached Bangalore at 1PM and stopped for lunch directly at Thulp! It was the Moos that definitely wanted.

Reached, ordered a Gonzenshwara, Moos your daddy and the Mother of all Moos (2 daddy's and a prayer!)

So, I had a friend from Bombay as well, 1st timer to Bangalore and a beef burger lover. I decided to tell him what he's been missing. (the prayer was for him btw)

There's nothing that can go with these people when it comes to their burgers and their beef and their bacon!

Few bites into the burger and the soft, tender, meat-rich chunk of awesomeness just makes you go 'mmmm...., aaaah...., yaaaa... more...' (ahem, no TWSS jokes)

The bacon, the cheese, the beef, the salads and the seriously awesome crispy french fries, Thulp! is definitely a place you wanna hog!

The Mumbai-kar, definitely struggled with the 800g beef burger and obviously couldn't finish it. (We finished that too..) And all he could say were "this is awesome" "this is huge" "i can't move".

After a delightful 'Bangalore' moment, we leave.

Great Food

So these were the days in Bangalore when I was a couch potato and was competing a marathon with no idea who to finish watching seasons of 'How I Met Your Mother'. This one episode totally dedicated to a Hamburger ruined my peace and left me craving for one.

Bangalore is no doubt a food heaven and I had visited most of the popular food joints of all kinds and sorts but had not come across a good burger point up until then. Fortunately my flatmate happened to know this small cozy cafe in Kormangala 1st Block called 'Thulp' which apparently served huge and yummy burgers.

Leaving no time for second thoughts, I rushed to my craving's rescue and landed at the cafe with my flat mates. The cafe was a simple yet spacious layout with good number of tables and a heavenly book of menu :)

For all the non - vegetarians/ carnivores and burger lovers, this menu and food is indeed heavenly I bet!!

My cravings went bad to worst going through the menu as it gives you an exhaustive list of Starters, Hamburgers (daddy of all the burgers with size of a quarter plate), Burgers, Pastas, Sandwiches, Desserts and Drinks. Finally the deal was closed with Spicy Garlic Prawn Cocktail (interestingly served in a huge wine glass with a dip), Chicken and Bacon Skewers with Teriyaki sauce (best I have ever had.. these are to die for), 2 grilled tender Chicken Burgers with Cheese and Bacon and a Beef Burger with Goan Sausage fry and grilled onions.

All the burgers are accompanied with french fries, potato wedges and salads. The food was no doubt too heavy and filling but I ate to my heart's content. The chef deserves an applaud for the great food 'Thulp' is serving and it earns away extra brownie points for low prices.

Thulp is for sure the best burger destination for me so far!!

Thulp Man!

We need more places like Cafe Thulp in Bangalore. This place is so alive. The books are a great addition, and though the concept of board games is well-thought of, the games are quite worn out. Time to replace!

Nonetheless, bright, cheerful place with mouth-watering, humongous burgers! It deserved a mention on my blog. You can read the details at http://skimble-scamble.blogspot.in/2013/02/cafe-thulp_28.html

Great food

I had one of my frequent cravings for hot dogs recently and we decided to visit someplace new, so settled for cafe thulp near our home in Koramangala.

Somehow, the day we went in the place was pretty much de(s)serted (pun-intended) - with just one other table occupied maybe since it was a weekday. Either way, this place deserved to be occupied at all times - since they do have a good variety of Hotdogs and sandwiches on their menu none of which disappoint.

I liked the ambience.

We zeroed in on the bow wow wow which turned out to be super-delish with all their sumptuous goodness! The portion sizes are pretty generous which works for me but you may want to split if you're watching your waistline!

I whole-heartedly recommend this place to anyone looking for some hotdogs and sandwiches in Koramangala!

Moo Factor

This was one of the places that I visited when I moved to Bangalore newly. And it certainly didn't disappoint me. The Moo Burger is just brilliant. Its juicy and succulent and filling. To kill your time until your order is served, they have a Red Paper on every table so that you can make a rocket out of it (comes with instructions)..

True happiness!

I went to Thulp for dinner with a friend. Being famished, we decided to order away. We started off with cheese and garlic fries and bacon wrapped chicken with teriyaki sauce. The fries were hot, the cheese was molten bursting with garlic. The bacon wrapped chicken was succulent and the teriyaki sauce contrasted the flavour of the chicken and bacon.

For the mains, we ordered a chicken and bacon impostor burger, which was huge and lovely. I had the Italian Stallion sandwich (brown bread) which had some delicious marinara sauce, mushrooms, sundried tomatoes. Both the burger and sandwich were served with perfect coleslaw and herbed potatoes.

We washed this lovely food down with some lovely cappuchino, strong and hot. Not milky like it is served in most places.

It was the perfect dinner. Relaxed, great food, the staff was attentive yet not overbearing.

Great cafe to chill out and have good food

Located near NMIMS Koramangala, this small joint is very popular among the youth. It was jam packed on a sunday afternoon with waiting period as well. The decore is minimal, and the place can be a bit noisy.
The menu comprises of salads, burgers, sandwiches, pastas and other tit-bits.
There is a lot of beef and pork on the menu apart from the usuals.
We had a lot of food, so item wise - burgers were good, the chicken burger with bacon and cheese in particular. The sandwiches were dry, and the fries were poor.
The hot chocolate was very tasty, and the fish nd chips were quite good too.
Service tends to be a tad slow, but it's more of a place to relax, with books to read and board games to play.
Well, it might not be the best burger in town(i think willy vailly was much better), but still its a good outing, and we'll be back for sure.

The new Kullas

Many of us know how amazing the Thulp burgers are. But for those who do not, you are missing an important part of your life!

Having said that, I only recently tried their Kulla Burgers, which made me yelp out with happiness for 2 reasons - (i) I don't have to pant my way into the end of their humongous burgers (I used to LOVE the size :P, but my appetite has not been the same in the last couple of months, soo... this is for those people who always barely manage to finish what they order), and (ii) I have to spend lesser than I used to! :D

the burgers here are humongous! finishing them seemed to be a herculean task! the food here is so flavorful too.. the service isnt the best though..

Excellent Burgers

At first it looks like just another ordinary restaurant for snacks and tea. You realize the difference once you open the menu. Cafe Thulp has nailed it with a 'killer' menu which leaves you droolin. The names of each and every item is just unique. The menu is more exhaustive than the one uploaded here on burrp with over 100+ items. I had the moo burger which was a huge portion of beef along with crisp fries. The food was good. Have to go there again to try other items.

CULT place

This place is a beef heaven with some of the best beef you can get in this city. One bad thing is price went up and it's quite expensive now. Still no matter what Thulp stands apart. Me gonna come in for more beef .For sure.

Big portions that will not disappoint !!!

I have been to Thulp! a few times now and honestly have never come out of this place with out a smile on my face. The portions are definitely big, specially the burgers and you get enough time to laze through the large portions of food with your friends playing scrabble or UNO or pictionary or any other board game that you can get you hands on from the shelf. When I go there alone I either read a book from their collection or listen to the nice music that they play all day long. The creative menu is what got me intrigued the first time. The sure shot winner starter for me is the prawnic healing and the buffalo bill. Do not go to the place if you are counting calories. However, If you are adventures do try the MOOs your daddy. For others the choices of salads, pastas, hotdogs and sandwiches are good. Have a look at the blackboard for that day's special before you order. Desserts for me are a hit and miss at Thulp.

All in all it's one of those places that you have good fun and good food. But be warned, you will be FULL when this restaurant is done with you.

Mouth-watering burgers!

I and my friends have been to Thulp on numerous occasions, and we have never been disappointed! The ho chi minh burger, a Vietnamese pork burger is the best burger I have ever had in my life! I'd also tried the Goan sausage burger, which wasn't bad either. The spicy Thai salad is also delicious! Other top-notch dishes are the spaghetti with meatballs, the chettinad sandwich, the beef stir fry, hot chocolate and their SINFUL chocolate cake!
I would just request them to not force people to order a min of Rs. 500 when ordering from home. One person does not need to order so much food! Sometimes I would just like to order a salad and a soup, but am forced to add something else just to bump the bill up to Rs. 500! And it's not like I live far from the restaurant. If the management is reading this, please, please, change this!

Awesome place for beef burgers

If you are craving for beef burger and dont know where to find it in bangalore, then you must head to Cafe Thulp. Their Moo burgers is aweome. Its done to perfection and seasoned just right. They serve it along with fries and coleslaw.
The service is pretty slow. Also you will have to wait to get in on weekends and the orders might take pretty too long to be served. But they have a decent collection of books and board games to keep you entertained while you wait.
Its a cool hangout place.

Awesome food but below par service.

I am a regular at Cafe thulp in Koramangala.The food here is absolutely great.The Moo Burger (beef) is my favorite. Also the cheese omlette is another excellent option.But the service here is pretty poor, be it taking the order ,serving and delay in giving the bill.I have been denied food at-least 5 times cause I reached the restaurant at 10.45 pm , 10.50 pm or also at 10.55 pm (where the closing time as specified is 11 pm).

Last night I was here with my friend at 10 pm .The staff came to take order at 10 .10 pm (it was not crowded at all).the first thing he says is that the kitchen is getting closed ,so this will be last order.He hurrys up through everything ; food , playing cards , the books even when our water glasses were empty.then came the bill ,that too around 10 .50 .10 mins after clearing the table,that too after i gave the staff a rude look ,

Firstly they should decide on the closing time and secondly , the most important, the staff has to be more courteous.

Nothing great and this time found a piece of bone

I have been here thrice now...hmm i havent really found anything to really get excited or make me go back there again... The burgers arent that huge..the bun surely is..but for 200 rs i need more bang for the buck...The patty though is very nicely grilled and is juicy . The pickles a bit too sweet . The french fries though are perfect. Every time i been here I have asked for the moo with bacon and cheese and after paying 200 rs i stiil feel the need to order some more food. The third and possibly the last time i found a huge piece of bone in the patty. When i did alert the staff they just said sorry. If a kid have gulped that by mistake i am sure he would have choked to death. We also ordered the day's special a chicken wrap for 275rs... it was tasty and the veggies on the sides were grilled perfectly... but why they called it a wrap when it was a piece of grilled chicken wrapped with bacon and served with veggies and mashed potatoes on the side??? ...We asked if we could have the gravy/sauce used over the grilled piece of chicken..the waiter had no idea what we wee talking about..the service is courteous and thats all. You do get the feeling that the place must have been much better and so all the good reviews...but they seem to resting on their past laurels and just about going through the motions of daily service. No energy or want to make the customer feel good.Serve 100 customers and day and be done with it ...they will come in anyways...
Conclusion:
Decor and ambiance: Simple and easy::3.5/5
Service: Courteous, inefficient and lack of energy ::3/5
Food: Good in patches: 3.5/5
Value for money: 120 rs for shake and feeling hungry after a supposedly huge burger?? ::2/5

Pull up your sucks and pay attention to customers they are 100s of similar joints opening up in and around giving better stuff at a better price and a bigger smile...

Avg.

Thulp was the talk of the town back in October (still is evidently) and my friends recommended that we definitely make time to try it. It was a big deal to whittle down a shortlist in a city where there are so many quality eateries. The list of available burgers is drool inspiring but I had read great things of the Moos your daddy & it was decided that I would eat it. I really enjoyed the evening, the seating is relaxed and convivial, the guys working here are all friendly and helpful and the menu is interesting and constantly changing, depending on what's in season and in the fridges. We had no trouble getting a seat at on a Monday but it can get really busy so be wise and go early or late.I would say that the food on the whole was good, really quite good, but sadly not memorable. Just don't come expecting fireworks

Hyped.

I think Cafe Thulp has become a victim of its own good reviews and has become a little slack in effort. Thulp is much loved by the pros and punters alike. I, however, am not a fan. I’d be willing to give the food another chance, but I don’t hold much hope for much change, as we tried a lot of different things. The restaurant has a narrow entrance and limited seating place. The interiors & accoustics are done well, and despite the place being small, noise levels were low.
At the end of the day, I’m just not sure that Thulp is shooting to be something other than a mediocre restaurant. I’ve had worse-don’t get me wrong, but for me this falls into the crowded class of mediocre American in Bangalore.
I have to say that I wasn’t really thrilled with any of this. The burgers were fine, though not as good as a number of the others available in this same genre.

Value for money..

Cafe thulp rather boldly claims to serve stunning burgers. They are indeed stunning. Beautifully presented, they taste every bit as good as they look..
I was very impressed and have been back since several times with different friends, all of whom loved the experience.
I thoroughly recommend this place. Amazing burgers and a great vibe. The prices are pretty cool too.
It can't be long before Cafe thulp becomes a must go place for everyone.

Visited this place as i was checking out the recommended 'good burgers ' in town.

The burger size is big. Taste - room for improvement. The meat needs to be a bit more juicy and needs to have a bit more 'zap' to it

Great place for Saturday Lunch

The Garlic Cheese Fries (I think it's called the heart attack) are delicious, as is the chicken burger with Bacon. Most things are their menu are quite inventive and portions huge. Good desserts, good meals, great starters (the chicken wings are also best I've had in the city) - I can't really say much more. It's the closet thing you get to a hipster burger joint in the city. Saturday's after 2PM it gets really crowded so come around 1-1:30 to block your table.

Cafe Bleugh ...

Don't get why reviews rave about this place... I've only had the burgers here and they were very average.. Like any place would make them. Worst of all the burgers are made from grilled meat and not minced meat patties... That not only makes it impossible to eat because it disintegrates but you can't eat grilled fibrous meat without a knife... It sticks to your teeth and it's not a nice experience going down.. Secondly this place isnt really that cheap - not anymore atleast.. Contrary to what's mentioned on this website - this place is NOT airconditioned. So it usually gets hot like a furnace and that makes it uncomfortable when you start sweating while eating fat-filled red meat. Service is slow and on one occasion, rude. Atleast if you count a waiter getting impatient and snapping at you, rude - because that's what happened in response to a very valid query. Another waiter kept sneezing inside the restaurant continuously that day. Maybe some particular dishes or preparations are worth the hype but overall dont get your hopes up.... a very forgettable experience.

Average at best

The chilli garlic fries were novel and quite tasty but the burgers were a let down. I've had better burgers in bangalore. Go if you have kids, they have nice board games and this should be a good outing for a family. Otherwise, there are better places. Service was slow and not quite up to the mark and the drinks sucked.
Or may be this place wasn't just our cup of tea (all 4 of us who went felt the same way)

MOO..The BEST burgers....

"Endless Appetite" by Ananta Sen and Poonam Vaidya
Aiming to devour Bangalore in five days

The BEST burger I've ever eaten: exclaimed Endless as she bid greedily into her first beef burger. Appetite just smirked - she had eaten this around five times before, the reason they were here in the first place. To accompany the burgers, the two travelers ordered a Snickers Blizzard -- a drink highly recommended by all, Endless however claimed it to be "hyped", and rated the drink as "I'd expected more..definitely not sweet enough". Appetite ordered a Strawberry Shortcake -- the last smoothie on the menu. The two's unanimous decision was that it was better, and deserves to be the mascot drink at Thulp.

The burgers, both of which were MOO's - an appetizing beef patty with tomatoes and jalapenos. Available in various combinations -- bacon and cheese, and various sizes catering to different appetites. This was accompanied by coleslaw, french fries and a large green chilli. These accompaniments require improvement : the coleslaw was bland and french fries deplorable - stale, hard and over fried.

The bill including two MOO burgers and two smoothies was 650 Rupees (excluding the very generous 50 rupees tip - assures a sign of sheer contentment).
The two travelers commented that although the burgers looked enormous, and it looked like they would not be able to complete the meal, they left satisfied with the amount they'd eaten.

Keep Thulping

Thulp is my hang out spot now. Every weekend i have one meal there with some friends. The ambiance is real good with music and board games and books...Plus the burgers there are one of the best i have had in Bangalore.
If anyone is trying Thulp, they have to go for Moos your daddy!

Overcooked is their philosophy

After hearing the good things about thulp from my friends, i decided to try it myself.
Ordered El Pollo Loco, Mexican Chilli Hot Dog, Ginzy Chicken burger and Some Mint Lemon juice.

Firstly the Chicken, all 3 of the dishes were thoroughly over cooked, most likely just reheated. The chicken is supposed to be soft but this was dry, stretchy and chewy.

The chicken strips were fat, with minimum meat and maximum batter which was tasteless.

The chicken burger was horrible the only taste was coming from cucumber pickles unfortunately.

The hot dog was the best, including the herb chicken side dish was good.

The drink was just sweet and not minty.

I would recommend Thulp only for the hot dog. But there are definitely better places for same cuisine in the same area.

I would like to add that I judge only by stass courtesy and food. Food was bad, staff was ok.

Good Food But service could be better

Went to cafe Thulp after reading all the positive reviews. Honey mustard salard was excellent but Hummus with Pita bread was only Ok. Disappointed that there was no veg burger. Liked their rosemary flavored potato roast that came along with some main dish we ordered.

But I was really disappointed with their service, we were not served water till we finished our lunch and one garlic bread fell off the plate when the waiter brought the dish and he just kicked it under the table and wasn't even apologetic nor cared to replace it.

Thulp-ing all the way !!!

I got to know of Cafe Thulp from colleagues who visited the Kammanahalli outlet. So this Sunday's lunch was at the Koramangala outlet. A quaint little place in 1st Block not too difficult to find. Red walls, wooden tables n chairs, music that keeps you up and pumping (it can be a little sometimes ) and a shelf filled with books and games i loved seeing ( read scotland yard, taboo etc). It is not really the fine dining kind of place if thats what you are looking for but its comfortable. It was awesome to see people from all age groups sitting there.

Coming to the main part - the food... Firstly i have to say, the menu was a superb concept. The names are creative and got me wanting to try everything on the menu. So we started off with an appetizer called "Buffalo Bill' - buffalo wings which is served with a creamy yogurt dip. The menu described them as fiery but they were more a shot of tanginess; a little too tangy for my taste but the neutral dip helps balance out the flavour a little. Our choice of beverage was "sour puss" a refreshing lemonade.

For main course we ordered a " Moo with Bacon & Cheese " and "Great balls of Fire" - the first being a gigantic beef burger served with fries and coleslaw and the second order was a spicy lamb meatball sub served with these awesome herbed potatoes and coleslaw. Burger was one of the biggest i have seen and the patty was aptly spiced... absolutely yumm... The lamb meatball sub was something different from the regular subs we eat and again very tasty.

Loved the place and waiting to go back to try the other stuff on the menu...

In IIT Chennai lingo, Thulp means to eat large quantities of food - which I do when I go here. Its a small enough place which serves a variety of good food ranging from pocket peace(Lebanese Hummus rolls) to Vietnam Pork burgers, to the Beef Moo burgers of varying sizes(the smallest one should be enough for most people) and even Bombay egg toast. Everything we have tasted here has been awesome so I will stop with the superlatives as far as the food is concerned. You would be pretty unlucky to order something and not like it.

Word of advice - skip the shakes, they are not good. Crowd tends to lean towards college going types but they leave you alone. The music is bit loud sometimes - it depends on who is in-charge of the PC connected to the speakers. But for the price you pay here, you won't remember any of these things when you are done paying the bill and thulping away.

loved it!

I went to thulp today during the afternoon. Its a fun place to hang out .The decor is colorful but the floor was really dirty . The menu is cute to read and the prices are quite reasonable. We ordered shot through the heart (beef wrapped with bacon skewers) which had this soya type sauce on it which was yum . For the main course the moo burger (with bacon and cheese) was delicious and very filling. Apart from that we ordered another dish whose name i cant remember but it equally appetizing. They both were served with coleslaw and fries. We ordered the sour puss (lemonade type ) drink which was very sour and refreshing as well as a normal cappuccino which was hot and nice to drink. They were really short staffed though the demand seems really high as it was almost fully packed. The food did`nt take very long to come.All in all a good experience ...

Overrated Thulp

returned just now from Cafe Thulp. Had potato skin, Fries(chili Garlic), Chicken Satay, Chicken Burger. Chicken Meat was completely Over cooked with out taste and rubbery(both the burger and Satay). We ate the fries completely , but left half of the items as we could not eat through the meat. . Over all Bad service, when the potato skins was served, the plate was very hot and the waiter did not bothered to tell about the plate, which i realized after touching it. I went with my kid, so i expect to be told(like Pizza Hut). I asked for juice/ Shake with out ice and with warm water, the person told its not possible. Will not go again and will not recommed to any one else except to people who like bland food.

A decent place

What attracted me to Thulp was their humorous menu online which had really funny names and the concept seemed interesting. Over the period of four visits or so in the last few months, the quality and consistency of food has not changed. It is of course not 100% American, neither is it very 'indianized'. I love the mayo in this place, it is the closest to real mayo taste for me. The following dishes are what we have had over the period of a few months:

Buffalo bill-AWESOME
Shot through the heart-Good
Moo with bacon and cheese-AWESOME
Moo's your daddy-AWESOME
The impostor-Good
The italian job-Decent
Great balls of fire-Decent
The peppery yakuza-Not at all what we expected, a stronger pepper sauce would have enhanced the flavor!
Cardinal sin- Decent, but too strong for my partner. I guess its subjective.
Agent orange-Nahhhh....
Peanut butter milkshake-Hmm, quite alright
Some cheesecake-One of the nicest and closest thing to an actual cheesecake that I have tasted.

Definitely would go back again. Just have a comment about the waiters though. Wish they would hire more waiters who are more friendly and customer-oriented, as most of the times, the waiters are pretty scary to approach, if you know what i mean :)

We'll definitely be back !

We all loved the food. I had a spicy beef Thai dish with rice, that was just amazing.
I don't see the wok specials on the menu uploaded here so I can't be precise on what this dish was. The Thai crispy beef starter is a Gautam Krishnankutty special. One thing that needs some work is the cleanliness, behind the counter visible and in the restaurant. While its understandable that Sundays are busy days, it still doesn't justify messy floors, uncleaned tables after guests leave. Having said that I'm all set to try the Kamanahalli branch sooner than later .

Great food and Moo burgers

The food was great specially the Moo burger with bacon and cheese. I liked the ceaser salad and mango shake too.

If you are into American food/burgers, this is your place.

The place is a bit overcrowded during the weekend and getting a seat may take some time. But the wait is also worth the food you will be getting.

Love the place some more everytime I eat there

I was in for a very pleasant surprise because I was certainly not expecting this good food ;-) it was yummy…. we ordered corn quesadillas chicken for starters which came with salsa and was one of the yummiest thing I have eaten in the recent times… the salsa was perfect and quesadillas correctly crisp with brilliant filling.

We ordered a tomato cheese chicken pasta and falafel burger (which I was totally amused with, never heard of a falafel burger) for the main course and both the dishes were mindblowing.

The pasta was routine but perfect to the last spice, an authentic italian taste was surely what u got (which didnt really suited Ojas I guess so me and N had the pleasure of gobbling down that too :D :mrgreen: ) The burger as I said above was a total surprise I havent really thought of putting a fafalfel in a burger before and after eating it there I am wondering why? with a little humus in place of mayo and lots of raw veggies, it seemed like a healthier version of burger too :D

All in all a brilliant meal was had and surprise surprise when the bill came, with a lemonade and the above dishes the bill was still under Rs 500/- which is so rare these days…

In nutshell a place I would surely recommend to all…. I hear they have a delivery branch called Asia in the box and I am waiting for the first opportunity to try that

Food – 4.5/5

Service – 3.5/5

Ambience – 3/5 (its nothing extraordinary but they do have the standard cafe things, games, books etc… what I liked was that they have a section of books and games for kids as well starting from 0+… so thoughtful)

Toothsome to the last morsel

I love this place - so much so i dine their atleast once a week.
the moo burgers and its variants are the best burgers in bangalore. the beef is juicy, the accompaniments are perfectly done. its a plate fulla happiness.
their pastas are great as well..al dente with just enough sauce, not cloggy not sparse. the flavour immaculate. Dessert (if there is room for it) is a must try as well - be it the blueberry cheesecake, the only one in town which is not overly sweet, or the chocolate in its various avataars. Kudos to the chef!

Burgers were only good

After reading all the posts about these incredible burgers I figured we had to check out Cafe Thulp. Kind of a sit-down fast food ambiance. A bit on the minimalist/cheesy side but I didn't come for the decor. We ordered the chicken satay starter- good but the peanut dipping sauce was very spicy- beware. I ordered the Ho Chi Minh (pork) burger hoping for Vietnamese flavours and it fell short. Nothing even remotely reminiscent at all. Don't get me wrong. It tasted good but just isn't as advertised. My husband was happy with his regular beef burger- but it didn't blow him away. The menu also had some really interesting sounding other sandwiches that I would want to try next time. Service is good and prices are right. It's a decent place for a casual lunch but doesn't hold a candle to a good old American burger joint.

All your base are belong to Burgers

What makes a Burger great? It must be sinful. It must be sloppy. It must be cholesterol laden...
Cafe Thulp gets it. Their burgers are among the best you can get in the country. They serve those burgers with fries, and coleslaw. The burgers are succulent, the meat patty is not overcooked, and and there are plenty of tomatoes, pickles, bacon etc inside - an absolute must to make every bite taste different. I usually order the moos yo daddy (or whatever it is called). It's a fairly big burger, very filling, and still quite cheap (250 odd bucks)
Other than burgers, they do have sandwiches, and a bunch of things on the menu. All reasonably priced, and nothing that I have ordered turned out to be bad.
What makes this place good is that it's inexpensive (bill for 2 would amount to anything between Rs. 400-700), and laid back. To give an idea - there are books, and board games, in a shelf that one can borrow. If you want to spend a Sunday afternoon, or any evening, reading books, playing on a tablet, while nibbling on great food - there's no place better than this.
Contrary to what most people have written here - the service isn't bad at all. While it's nothing to rave about, it isn't intolerable.
I wanted to give it a 5, but didn't. There is certainly some room for improvement - (1) Expand the drinks menu (2) Serve alcohol and finally (3) Improve the setup. The book shelf is not visible, one has to walk up to the counter to check the desserts etc.

Delicious!

I have to say, I absolutely LOVED this little restaurant! I was a bit skeptical when my brother first dragged me here, because there are so many little restaurants peppered all over koramangala, but I decided to give it a shot (not that he gave me much of a choice).

Thulp is a cute little restaurant, with a very relaxed (and very clean) ambience. I don’t quite remember the name of the burger I had (it was the moo and bacon or something), but it was FANTASTIC. A large burger with melted cheese, pickles and bacon in it. Comes with fries and cole slaw. Mmmm it was sooo good! Their hummus was fantastic too, and another person at our table ordered a vegetarian dish with rice which was also really tasty.

??Lovely menu, with LOTS of options to choose from. Their menu is very well written with lots of funny names for their food ('prawnic' healing being the only one I can remember off the top of my head)

I would definitely recommend this place to anyone! I’ve gone back tons of times since that first fateful day, and loved it every time! Go check it out you won’t regret it!

Deficient service,chaotic milieu mar good food

Excited about this interestingly named ,positively reviewed joint- Cafe Thulp in 1st Block,Koramangala, we entered the filled-to-capacity place and trawled through the jazzy playfully-scripted menu. Undoubtedly, there's chuckle-worthy wordplay to be found here! The starters promised Prawnic Healing (spicy prawn cocktail), bird on a wire (chicken satay), and bangakok dangerous (crispy beef).Having relished starters just before (the remarkable Tunday mutton kababs) ,we directly moved onto one of the mean protagonists here- The Moo- hamburger with slaw n fries. The apotheosis of this was listed as "Mother all Moos' (2 Daddies in the making!) .We settled for the regular version with bacon and cheese (Rs.190).It was a solidly good tasty hamburger with decent side-kicks.The meat patty, bacon n cheese all nicely conspired to create a hearty round of chomping.Other burgers here include the 'chicken imposter' and the 'ho chi minh pork".The cheeseburger ("cornerstone of any nutritious breakfast" acc. to Pulp Fiction!) took about 15 minutes to arrive .Not very bad timing so we next scanned the sandwich selection.

From options like The cows came home,Rocky Balboa (steak filling), and Great balls of fire (lamb),we chose a Night at porky's booked at Rs.190,hoping it to be quite a romp. The filling was again appetizing- sliced roast pork,sliced ham,BLT n mayo, but the hefty bread got in the way of our lusty encounter with these goodies.Taking off the numerator,dispatching it with slaw,mayo & creamy wasabi (the latter two from the thoughtfuly filled table bottles), and then devoting oneself to the denominator with fillings is not a bad idea!This order took about 25 minutes to arrive as though we'd asked for a triple order of A fish called wanda,El pollo loco(fried chicken) & peppery yakuza steaks! This long wait frustrated us, made us forego other food orders, & keeping books-n-games in a nook,as is done here, isnt going to make up for the long lapses in time.

The wait-staff might do a better job if their numbers increase. A man (probably the owner, forgot to ask him) moves around with an unsmiling face,arranging the seating of incoming customers, but doesnt interact much with patrons for feeback.At one point, there was a loud grating of chairs to re-arrange seating for a large party,after which the din in the compact place increased & coupled disturbingly with the noisy music being played. Sunday afternoon is arguably not the best time to visit restaurants,conversely it sure helps to assess how good a modus operandi under strain is.

Vegetarians wont be starved for choices here.Starters include spicy corn quesadillas,vietnamese rolls and grilled eggplant,tahini & hummus with pita among others. Sandwiches have grilled cheese, grilled peppers,garlic cream cheese n other fillings, while a Chef's salad catches attention with its tag- 'honey,I cut the mustard!". And there's Pasta with the same saucy names- Luca Brasi goes to town,Popeye's paramour & Gambolling gambini (penne with arrabiata sauce)

The Watering Hole & Sheikh Yerbooty- From options like Caffeine coronary,Bourne trilogy(choco-based) ,Chill maadi n Sour puss, my friend wanted to taste how the "Cucumber Got Cooler". The description specified how honey n lime were also enlisted for the makeover.However ,the drink suffered a split personality by the time of arrival and Remained Lame.'Twas a spa drink, and it was our mistake to not flag down the waiter and ask how the purported honey and lime had acquired phantom poperties like the dude himself! The 'Snickers blizzard' here carries some positive feedback,but our decision to traverse the road less travelled didnt take us to more desirable destinations.Green mango shake (Rs.90), ordered with the hope of finding a new,one-two tart-creamy punch turned out to be regular vanilla milkshake with tart bits.This didnt have expected caliber, and neither did the straw which wasnt thick enough to suck up the concoction.A meal for two here may range from Rs.400 to Rs.800.

Ambience is casual-chic with red,white n yellow painted walls, segmented manga-animation portraits on one side, eclectic,esoteric frames on the other, and a red toy car suspended at the counter at the back.There Will be prizes for guessing the unifying theme decor here!.Others accounts will tell you that its possible to have a unalloyed good time here but that experience eluded us. Adequate staff (lack of this has been an issue here from quite some time,despite the owner's assurances to have it rectified),better control of ambience and sound levels,speedier delivery of dishes wont hurt this place unless it prefers to be an indisciplined cafe.Good food alone doesnt cut it and and sticking a 'Listed on Burrp' sign at the entrance doesnt mean you can slacken on vital restaurant parameters.'Thulp' is attracting name-based jokes of the negative kind increasingly, and unless it watches out, it may go the way of Koshy's Jewel Box, where inadequate service soldiers on, knowing that customers will come in anyway.

Rapidly heading downhill

April 05 2011.The place was brimming with expats and some locals and I thought the quality would be good.Had to write a review here after having lunch there today.Extremely dissapointed.For the record I had Phad Thai chicken noodles(special of the day) along with espresso coffee.I'm not sure that given that they specialize in burgers and sandwiches the noodles was a great choice.The noodles which arrived took about 40 minutes and had way too much chilli.I have eaten at many Andhra restaurants but the chilli was way above these places.For a cafe the coffee was miserable.The cup was small ,that small cup was only half full and it was already cold by the time I got down to drinking it.Miserable proportions for coffee.As someone else mentioned here they also appear to be understaffed .The waiters did not attend to me for a full ten minutes.It took some more time to just get someone to fill a glass of water.C'mon guys.....filling up a glass of water for a patron is a basic courtesy....and it is summertime.

Many firsts for me:
1.The first time I have eaten a noodle that burns your tongue.I DO NOT like to waste food.This was the first time I had food left over on my plate.
2.I did not tip the waiters.I always make it a point to tip the serving folk.But if someone doesn't attend to something basic as a glass of water and pisses me off with that "Oh !I'm so busy with the others look",I say "F***k You".

Ok Compare this with Cafe Pascucci on MG Road.I'm not saying it is great but It is clean,the decor is better,the rates are comparable,the vegetables in the salads are always fresh and they have a waiter by name Robinson who remembers your name and is quick.The coffee is brilliant and it is air conditioned.I dont leave food to waste on my plate and I tip the waiter for a good job.

Pity I can't say the same about Cafe Thulp.The only thing about this place is that the quality is getting "thulped" along with your wallet.

Good food, Better ambiance, Awesome music!

For lazy people like myself (and you'd be surprised to know the number of lazy people out there) this place is just perfect. A laid back style and the comfort of home outside home.

The food was good and filling. But its the ambiance and music that sets this place apart. When I was there old times blues songs were playing and it felt brilliant.
The interiors have many nice artistic portraits. There are a few books lined up on the shelf, and many games to choose from. An old retro car was hanging from the ceiling and I couldn't help but take photos of it. (See photos section here, have uploaded it.)

Overall, thanks to thulp, I had a nice comfortable evening.

Bad service

This place has good food but its service is nothing to be proud about. Definitely understaffed and the staff has a "we don't really care" attitude. We waited for a couple of burgers for an hour while one of our friends joined us ten minutes later and could not get any body to take his order. We tried going there a couple of times but there was no improvement. Several times the waiters just looked right through us while we were trying to catch their attention

Great Place

My friend has been suggesting that I try the food at this place for quite a while (he loves this restaurant) and so, last weekend we drove to Koramangala, parked conveniently close to the restaurant and strolled along to it. My first impression as I entered and we sat down was Wow! What interesting wall decor and what nice looking games and books. I love reading and enjoy board games and so, got up to go and take a closer look at the books and games on offer. Eagerly I grabbed hold of the chess set and my friend and I began a very happy game. We also ordered from the most interesting and fun menus which the waiter had provided us with. I chose a chocolate drink and my friend ordered a Lemoade. For our starter, we decided on a Spicy Prawn Cocktail. Our drinks arrived fairly quickly, given that the restaurant was packed and there were just two waiters to deal with everyone. These was followed by the Spicy Prawn Cocktail, which looked and tasted different from any other Prawn Cocktails which I had had. However, it did taste good and I was most amused at the seven prawns stuck on the rim of the glass. For dinner, I ordered a plate of Stir Fried Beef with Rice and my friend chose a Vietnamese Pork Burger with Chili Sauce. The food when it arrived tasted amazing and there was plenty of it. So much infact, that we were too full for dessert. My view of the place is that it has a lovely ambience, cool menus, great food and drinks and is a wonderful place for a group as well as a solitary person as there are plenty of books that can be read. The crowd is nice and quite trendy. The service wasn't that great but then if there are just two waiters and the restaurant is packed, what can you expect? A suggestion to the owners if they read this, is to hire in more staff as its quite sad to see two persons rushing up and down trying to cope with and satisfy everyone.

Moo Burger Rocks !!

I visited the cafe after my friend insisted we visit this cute place. I could not say coming from a guy who had gone there the day before and still lugging me around to try it. The cafe has a chic and a very informal air that you come to expect in good cafes. The mandatory magazines, word games etc, strewn about for guests to pass their time was pretty thoughtful.
I digress, so coming to the food, I went with my friend's suggestion- the Moo Burger..The burger is huge !! The meat was tender and the overall taste was really too good. But once you had the burger I think you can forget your Dinner.. It does last in your stomach for long so does it in your mind though pleasantly :-)

Overrated and understaffed

I have visited this place thrice and the only time I left satisfied, was the first time I visited it (before it got famous)

I went there for a late lunch a couple of days ago and boy was I disappointed. They had TWO waiters for around 12 tables and both were lackluster and inattentive (I was annoyed to the extent of not tipping them) I waited approximately 40 minutes for my burger and another 10 for a knife! Why would I need a knife when I was eating a burger? Well, the patty was that hard.

I always felt this place deserved another chance but "twice" bitten, always shy.

Give it a miss if you can but you could try it once, just for the concept - the wacky menus and table mats!

Awesome Moosome !

Thulp! is a restaurant that saved Bangalore.

From me that is, for the last few days I have been bitching about the lack of good burgers here. The lack of good food in general (ref: my review of presto). Turns out I was going to the wrong places. :) You’re pardoned this time, dear city.

Thulp! has old books, uno cards, scrabble, good coffee, chalkboard specials, happy people, superman painting, and most importantly: good food.

The salad was funny, but they did warn us they were out of lettuce. The coffee was good and the beef burger was awesome by the fact that it existed. In-fact, their whole philosophy beef burger made my heart go moooo… it’s called moo burger, and we’re encouraged to ‘thulp’ it up loudly with our hands and lick fingers later. :)

We played uno till late in the night and guzzled up a lot of coffee… sigh!

really good burgers

I was there few days back for brunch on a weekday on my way to work :). WE were just 2 of us and ordered 2 burgers. One griled chicken based and another pork based. Both of them were really good in taste especially the pork based. Just wish these guys open up a bit early for some amazing breakfast.

A one-time affair

After having heard just so much about this place from almost every friend of mine, I decided it was finally time for me to go get Thulped. We went on a Saturday afternoon, and the place was bustling with college students. Decor definitely catches the eye and the place has a nice cafe feel to it. The menu with its outlandish yet witty names of food items make you smile and want to try just about everything.

I scanned through the menu, and the moment I spotted the words 'Philly Cheesesteak', (the Rocky Balboa) I decided to order it right away. The actual Philadelphia cheesesteak of course, is a sandwich made from thinly sliced pieces of steak and melted cheese in a long roll. What I got was a something like a stuffed hot dog with a blob of unappetizing liquid cheese. When I took my first bite, the bread refused to tear out and was so hard that I ended up using the knife to cut the sandwich. As if this wasn't bad enough, the filling tasted what seemed like mutton kheema - which of course, had a disastrous marriage with the cheese and the bell peppers. Now when I don't completely expect them to emulate the original dish entirely, I wouldn't want them to sway so drastically from it, making it unpalatable. The potatoes served with this horribly-gone-wrong sandwich were poorly seasoned and unsalted. The coleslaw was reasonable, but lacked zing.

My friend wanted to try a salad but wasn't appealed with any salad on the menu. So we asked the owner to recommend something and he said he would toss a fresh house salad keeping her preferences in mind (no bell peppers, not too sweet). However, what was finally served to her was the Honey I cut the Mustard salad, which was extremely sweet, had sharp onions, and was filled with red peppers. An utter disappointment.

We then tried the Moo burger with bacon and cheese. It passed as an ordinary beef burger, just not juicy enough. The crispy, greasy French fries served with the burger were the saviour of the day. The 'Hammy hears a who' simple ham and cheese sandwich is also try-able.

Service is absolutely pathetic. The servers are always in a hurry and rush through your orders. When we did place our orders, I asked for some water. The server completely ignored me and reconfirmed my order. After a few minutes, I called him again and he thought we were going to place another order, I asked him for some water again and he walked off. This happened once again. I finally marched up to the kitchen and asked them for some water, from where the server shooed me. The owner finally asked him to serve us some water, after which we still weren't served water. After a good ten minutes, when the crowded table next to us cleared, we were served water. Cold. And unapologetic.

I can understand why this place is so popular, especially among the boys. They serve ginormous burgers, meat in all possible forms, and how can I forget the unlimited mayo, mustard and ketchup at your disposal? Full marks for the concept, the decor, and the exhaustive menu. However, if you can't really deliver what you promise, and aim to frustrate rather than delight customers, the restaurant definitely doesn't make the cut for me.

One star for the concept and another for a good collection of books and board games.

You know, I'd heard so much abt this place, so I went there and ordered a chicken burger (the impostor) and it was this huge chunk of undercooked meat and i immediately fell sick. It was so disgusting!
But my friend ordered a veggie sandwich and it was fine (the veggies were supposed to be raw, so no problem.)
I guess they serve everything raw here?

I ordered the chicken burger here - it had a fancy name which I cant recall. The meat was undercooked. I complained and the staff took it off the bill for me. However, I paid more than that when I had an upset stomach! I notice that there are other reviewers who have fallen sick as well. Please dont ignore these warnings. Give Cafe Thulp a wide berth.

the service is good but moo burger bad

I love burgers and so I went here to have a moo burger inthe afternoon, it was empty except for he three of us. we orerdered the moo is your daddy burger, the wings and bacon. The waiter was very good, polite and took orders well.
the food came and the moo burger was really bad, I could taste the cow, that is the only way to explain it. the wings were really good and the bacon old. when we tried to complai to the wiater, he was no where to be seen. we had to call the chef to call him. Anyway when he came he smiled and told usthat this was the taste of the burger and that is how it went, the bacon too, we were told is fresh. well somehow it was fun.

Thulped!

The first thing I noticed on entering Thulp was a prototype of a red convertible hanging from the ceiling above the counter. The first thought in my mind was 'That's bad!' The reason is that, in my experience, most eateries which try to be too hip and jazzy somehow end up disappointing in terms of the food that they serve (after all that's primarily why I am there! I might as well sit at home and watch a sci-fi movie if I want to see flying cars). After we took our places, one look at the menu was enough to create an appetite even if you went there after a sumptuous meal. I ordered the most popular dish there (didn't want to take any chances), and ever since then Thulp has become a part of our monthly excursion. The patties are luscious and perfectly cooked. The fries are well made and much better than what you will get at other more famous fast food joints. Haven't tried the pastas yet (am yet to complete a tour of all the burgers on offer), but the burgers and sandwiches are too good to be satisfied by just one. The overall ambience of the place is really good with plenty of board games to choose from for playing; or you can just grab a book from the book shelf and enjoy it while you get you taste buds refreshed. Overall, Thulp is good value for your money, and a good place to hang out and have some great food.

Ordered a sandwich and a burger, both chicken... however, it turned out that that only the chicken tasted ok. My partner fell ill the following day developig skin rashes, and it normally happens when the food is stale... It's just her way of reacting to unhygenic food. Also, the rates are not quite attractive too since you really can get better food elsewhere for the same price..

TO keep it short, I still drool and die for my favourite burger place on Museum road - The **** Place, where every visit is purely driven by the urge to binge on food and dragging a friend along is "only" an excuse...

SO, to be the best, once again, you gotta take out the best.

Tastefull-liked it

Tastefully done interiors - love the idea of board games and books in the corner. Now coming to the food, I must say that the menu was interesting with the wacky names and all that, I know this is a burger N shake type joint, so I tried the lamb burger, which was alright, the portions were sizable. Taste wise it was adequate; i've tasted better lamb burgers. But I can’t wait to try to moo burgers.

Yummy ! Moooo !

Finally a place in Bangalore that knows how to serve burgers they way they are meant to be !
Excellent variety to choose from - the burgers, the beverages, anything !
Not a very large cafe but spacious enough and you always have a choice of playing a board game as you gorge on awesome moo moo sandwiches while sipping on the snickers shake.
Kudos !

Excellent value for money!

Thulp is a great place to unwind, play some Uno, chess or monopoly and eat some fantastic food!
While their menus are great, what I like most about the place is their specials.
Everyday is something nice and different, so you're never bored!
This sunday i decided to get the spinach, bacon and egg salad off the specials. A simple salad, but the dressing was just perfect, and the bacon was done just right to make the salad absolutely delicious!
Next, we ordered Vietnamese spring rolls, and as always, I was not disappointed! they were done just right!
My new favorite on the veggie burger menu is the delicious veg Falafel burger with generous quantities of Hummus!
Also a must try there for the weight watchers is the Paw Paw salad! The green papaya with peanut salad is spicy enough to tickle your taste buds without the calories!
All in all, fabulous lazy Sunday hangout with fun games and great food!

Pricey but good

The place has nice setting to it which will keep you entertained as it provides you with many games and novels to keep youself occupied before your yummy stuff arrives. The menu is very limited and there is not much for veggie people. But meat lovers can go Ga- Ga here.
The peanut butter jelly sandwhich is amazing and the buffalo wings are even better. the shakes such as the Snicker bar shake will shake your senses cuz its so good

Unfortunate experience

This is one of the places that you wish will do well. A good burger joint is hard to find in Bangalore.

Went to this place with my family a few weeks back. My wife and I ordered the laksa soup and we spent the next two days rather ill from the experience. Fortunately the kids did not have the soup but other items like the burger. This was our 2nd visit to Thulp.

Food is generally good but nothing spectacular. Easy going atmosphere that should be a hit with the younger crowd.

Baguette spoilt the mood

We had ordered for a Greek Salad and a Grilled Pork Sandwich. The Greek Salad was nice with fresh ingredients and the right amount of dressing but the Baguette was soft and not so fresh. They didn’t ask me the choice of bread, a Panini might have saved the day. These days in Blore you get awesome breads and it is unpardonable to serve low quality bread.
I have given this place a 3 star primarily because of the ambience and concept. I will definitely go back to check the other stuff on the menu.

Consistently awesome!!

I'd highly recommend Thulp for its sandwiches, burgers and 'some' of their specials! Lets start with whats awesome: Chicken Wings, Zorba the Greek (veg sandwich), Meatball sandwich, their beef burgers, and shakes. I've left out a lot of other good stuff, but I personally like all the above. Some reviews say that the burgers are not up to the mark, I would agree a bit, this is the only inconsistent thing on their menu! But when they get it right, they're really good! They've started a new Goan pork sausage sandwich which is fabulous, shame its only a 'special' and not available daily! Definitely try their asian food if its on the 'specials' board, they're Asian chef must be awesome, I'd once tried their Veg Yellow Curry with rice, it was just fab!! Thulp is definitely worth many visits!!

Not a Filler

This place looks super awesome and really has a great menu card. The burgers are kinda bland and its not got any thing special to it.. other than lookin kinda big.. its looks super huge.. but once you are done eating it.. it feels like eatin a Mc Veggie from McDonalds.. I feel the desserts are really overpriced and not worth at all.. The place has a small library and some games... So its kinda nice to play for a while and hang out.

Best burger not!!

I didnt try the moo, but the pork burger. the company had a hot dog & a veggie sandwich.
The burger was so-so, not impressed with the meat. The hot dog had cream cheese on it! bleah.... awful tasting. reminded me of the pasta with 'white sauce' that passes off as palatable in other joints. Where was the relish and mustard??? the mustard on the table matched what i made at home - fiery and bitter. they may want to age that thing a little longer before letting people try it.
The vegetable sandwich (greek i think) was a winner. perfectly grilled brinjal and a nice medley of dressing. They scrimped on the feta - definetely a no-no.

All in all, I still like the big burger at the Only Place. The menu is certainly fresh and the pj's are worth reading while you wait for your food to arrive. Definitely worth another visit for the moo maybe or others on

Mediocre

Perhaps the ones who used words like "awesome" and "best" in their reviews, have never had a decent burger before. Three burgers with 400 gm patties were ordered and in the first bite, I tasted disappointment. The meat was dry, hard and devoid of taste. A large burger becomes a liability when it's not good and it was a chore trying to finish it. Now I've easily put away 2 Double Whoppers with Cheese and a large onion rings quickly and easily. This was like to file my tax returns.

The penne was not al dente it was like chewing the cap on a BIC pen. How can someone make a mess of pasta ?? The Vietnamese Pork Burger was quite nice, though. I saw many other diners around me straining to finish their Moo's Your...

The humour that the place is awash in is irritating especially when it promises more than it delivers. Bigger is better but most certainly NOT in this case.

If one's never left India, has no idea what a decent burger tastes like then what's served here is fabulousawesomesuperbfantastic. For everyone else who's had better, skip skip skip.

Best Hamburger joint in B'lore !!

Bangalore has always been the Red Meat heaven for me since the time I started visiting this garden city. Among all the daily mutton biryani joints, Punjabi tandoori chickens and the manjurian dry’s – there were days when I used to badly crave for a hamburger or some red meat sandwiches. The only places that served this were star hotels of HRC.

Then came a day that one of my foodie friends happened to take us to this new place that served rocking conti/thai/global food including mouth smacking beef and pork dishes. Thulp just created a lasting impression right on our first visit, and still gives me a craving for their beef burgers.

The dishes I frequently order here are Moo’s your daddy with extra bacon and cheese (beef burger) , chicken wings (to die for) and Ice Tea (not bad at all). Their day’s special items also cover a lot of thai dishes , I have tried the pork burger and Tom yum soup among others. All have been just wonderful.

This place is a must if you have some foreigner friends along with you who are dying to have some quality hamburgers.

p.s: They have a big collection of book and board games to jus chill out on while eating or waiting for the order.

Whats missing: Beer !!

A little overrated

Heard a lot about this place from friends so i personally went to experience it myself...Was really exited at first, the quantity was excellent but the burger wasn't really great. It did not have a taste of its own was just another burger. Honestly speaking the beef wasn't grilled properly to give the rich beef taste as i expected.

Cool with a crowd

I came here on Saturday after my piano lessons at Eastern Fare (another place I have yet to write a review about). Major points for:

- Atmosphere (Crowded place yet seemed like the place to have lunch)
- Staff. It felt like one of those hip places where your waiter could also be the guy you watch performing at Kyra or Opus as a guitarist.
- Price. Very reasonable for the selection.

So-so for:
a) Food was decent, but like everybody else, nothing special. Then again it's still a step above most place, and combine with the price and vibe of the scene I'll def be back.
b) We had the thai salad (mediocre), vietnamese chicken spring rolls (awesome) and the chicken strips/pasta (they were ok).

Overrated

I wanted to like this place. I really did. I live close by and I love sandwiches and burgers and so when I heard of Cafe Thulp and read the positive reviews, I promptly went there and ordered a burger. It was OK. The patty was tough and not juicy the way I like it. I tried the basil pesto cheese sandwich and that was atrocious - I expected mozarella cheese but instead the sandwich has cheese slices, and the basil pesto is overdone so the whole thing looks soggy and tastes unappetizing.
Went back again and tried their drinks - which were good. The "sour puss" is like a Mojito without the rum , great for summer.
I tried the larger burger (moos your daddy) - the patty was full of pepper and tougher than the last one. The bun was gargantuan. Tried the pasta and the sauce was somewhat grainy and not at all creamy.

I like the irreverence of the place, the place mats, the ambience of a cool college place.
But ultimately a restaurant lives or dies by its food not by the concept.
I hope the management is listening. Charge 10% more if you have to. But if the food is not improved. ,I am not coming back and I suspect I am not alone in this.

Okay place, nothing special

The place has ample street parking. The place serves burgers and sandwiches.

When I went my family and friends, we ordered few burgers and sandwiches. They were okay. The prices were on higher side.

The coleslaw was good, the accompanying potato wedges bad.

The tea was costly. Overall a very average place.

Adequacity

In the television show "NewsRadio" the character Bill is in denial after reading a review that labels him as merely "adequate." He pretends that this is actually a compliment and starts making up words to try and convince others that it was a good review. At one point, he starts bragging about his "adequacity."

Cafe Thulp has received more than its fair share of reviews that essentially label it as nothing more than adequate. While the individual criticisms here have varying degrees of validity, I think it would be worth your time to give the place a try for yourself.

I went there this afternoon and ordered the "Moo's Your Daddy?" burger. I took pictures and will post them here shortly but let me just get this out of the way first... the thing is HUGE. The plate in the picture is not tiny. The burger really is that big. I couldn't finish it.

The burger wasn't bad. It was certainly better than the burger I had at TGI Fridays a month or so ago but that's not saying much. The only complaint I have about my burger at Thulp is that it seemed like they put a lot of pepper in the meat.

The fries were good. The coleslaw, too.

One of their daily specials today was Fresh Watermelon Juice with Basil. I gave that a try and it was really good. After I finished eating, I also ordered the "Sour Puss" which is their limeade with mint. Also quite tasty.

The restaurant itself was clean and sharp. The art is trendy and cool. The staff was friendly although perhaps a bit slow. They forgot to charge me for my second beverage but my conscience wouldn't let me leave without saying something.

There are other items on the menu that look appealing to me so I'm sure I'll go back again. I kind of regret not trying one of the other daily specials today... the Vietnamese Pork Burger. If anyone else has tried that, I'd be curious to hear what you think of it.

Definitely overrated!!

I had read so much about this place - both in newspapers and here that i once recommended this place to a friend even before eating here. Last Sunday my friend and i decided to finally try out this place.

My friend ordered a Bow wow wow, which is a hot dog in which you can choose to either have a chicken or a pork sausage. He opted for chicken. I ordered a veg. chilli chesse sandwich. I had heard people rave about the Snickers blizzard and decided to order one.

First came the snickers blizzard, which was a big big disappointment. It was nothing but a small bar of snickers blended with a glass of skimmed milk accompanied by another small bar of snickers. I was expecting a really thick shake, which would be a meal by itself, but that wasn't the case. At 120 bucks, i feel it is a big rip-off. I'd not recommend it at all.

Then came the sandwich, which i must admit was quite tasty, even though the potatoes and coleslaw weren't anything to write home about. Most definitely one of the best cheese sandwiches i've had in the city.

My friend's hot dog was apparently not that good.

The ambience is nice and i liked the fact that there are board games and comics available. Nice way to kill time till your food arrives even though the service is quite fast.

Overall, the service wasn't bad but i do have a complaint. We asked for the bill and it took them more than 15 minutes, while the people on the next table got theirs immediately. But i liked the fact that the waiter apologised for the delay and the apology sounded genuine.

Will i return? Yes, most probably for the sandwiches but i dont see myself ordering the snickers blizzard again. I'm not sure about the friend though. :P

Love it!

I agree with some of the other reviewers that this may not be the best burger ever.. But hey, Im just glad that I'm getting a good old beef burger to start with..! Hardees or DQ or Denny's or the other ten dozen places around the world do have good burgers.. But they're not here!.. And Thulp is.. And I think they do a pretty decent job while they're at it.. The three times Ive been there, Ive enjoyed both burgers and other items like the fish n chips.. or the philly steak sandwich and loved all of it.. As for the price, I think for the size of the burger its fair enough.. I like the chilled out atmosphere too.. The no-nonsense look about the place.. This is the place Im likely to go for a laid back comfortable meal..

Overrated

Over the years, I have had burgers from around the world. Have had Burger King in Singapore and the US and Hardees in Dubai. Also have tasted beef burgers from small neighbourhood burger joints in the US.

So when I first heard about a beef burger joint in Bangalore...I was thrilled to bits. My mind raced back to those juicy XXL Flame and Chargrilled Burger King Beef Burgers and I soo wanted to go back to that experience!

I finally decided to visit Cafe Thulp on Sunday night and tried their biggest burger, moos ure daddy! Maybe I had high expectations? I was extremely disappointed.

Even if I were to cut some slack and compare it to the lamb burgers at Ice and Spice, I would still say, their burgers weren't upto the mark.

So what was my issue.

1 - The bun at Thulp crumples. Thats the first sign of a bad burger. Though a lot of us hate the Mcdonalds burger, note the fact that a Mcdonald burger bun never crumples. Even the KFC burger in India does not have a bun that crumples in a thin layer on top.

2 - The Meat was overdone and too dry. For me a good beef burger is about juiciness. That juiciness is all about the meat cooked just the right amount. Not too much coz then its overdone and dry. And not too less where its rare. Thulps burger was too overdone and dry.

3 - Sauces. Eh. What sauce? Mayo, Ketchup and Mustard needs to be added in generous dozes to make the burger go down.

4 - Price - 250 Rs for THIS burger is expensive. Not worth it especially when you know this aint such a super burger anyway!
Finally...the X factor.

Very difficult to explain the X factor. Its that lil something in a burger where even if the size is too large or u have a tough time finishing the burger, you still try to chomp it all down like a greedy glutton coz its increadibly tasty! Its that sinful pleasure one gets when one chumps on a really tasty juicy burger.

For some reason, all that cheese, bacon and overcooked dry meat make me queezy. And Im someone who is known to love my beef!

Overall, if you are in Koramangala area and you fancy a beef burger, go for it. If you are in the CBD area or far away from Koramangala, dont bother. You are better off at Ice and Spice!

And lastly, the burger does NOT look anyway close to the picture you see on top. Thats a nice Hardees Burger by the way. They WISH they could make a burger like that!
