A CASUAL ATMOSPHERE

Tucked in the corner of Domlur . Roaddtrip offers a very casual pleasant dining experience . They have done up the place since I went last time but missing the BIG BIKE that used to be placed at the enetrance , a very innovative door handle invites you to place which is mostly a young joint . Happy with the service , warm setting ...enuf now about food ! Must must taste the PIG IN THE BLANKET and MEATBALLS !! They also have a array of desserts, which is a must try . Overall I vouch for you will be satisfied atleast I was !

Good restaurant gone bad...

Road Trip used to be one of my favorite places to go to for Italian. The cosy ambience and the excellent service used to be motive to go every other week for some scrumptious Italian. But I recently re visited this once loved restaurant after a long time and was so disappointed to see what used to be a once charming little restaurant now crumbling and holding onto its seams.

The place lacked any kind of life and the food was just about average. The staff took over 40 minutes to plate up our order and was extremely rude while serving.

A bad experience for an old favorite.

A nice and casual regular hang out place

A pub with good and not-very-pricey food.. How often do you get that in Bangalore!!
Its a nice place to chill out with friends without making it too heavy on your pockets. Plus I honestly cannot mention one single favourite food as i dont remember one single dish that I dint like there.
Coming to the decor and ambience, it is a very friendly one specially with the mysterious door that opens up to the place. Hidden in once small service lane, it looks like one of those old bars.
Not to forget about the free wifi that they provide.. rarely do you get that.. do you!!

The Value meal was really really good value.

Between two people, you'll need the equivalent of 3 value meals, but it is totally worth it. We had the pizza-salad and the pasta-fries. The pizza was good, good. Thin, crisp and atleast as good as at Little Italy. And the pasta was outstanding too. Same goes for the salad that came along. Well made, super fresh and hot.
Only problem is that the quantities (slightly on the smaller side) left us hanging :P

And yeah, the small rolls they gave to nibble amounted to easily the best bread I've eaten in Bangalore.

Going there for more, for sure

Road Trip is easy to miss. Tucked away in a service lane, you are less likely to chance upon it. So seek it out because you wont be disappointed!

Road trip is one of the few pubs that also has great food. The menu is very focused. In the last 4 trips that I have made to this place I have tried at least 70% of their menu and each dish has pleased my taste buds to the brim.

I particularly love their Bacon quiche, Smoked chicken salad with pears, Boneless stuffed chicken and their Kiwi Pavlova. The pastas are also flavoursome and well seasoned. And all this comes at an affordable price. I am making a few more trips to this place.

Great place for continental food

Love almost all the dishes I have had there. My favourite is the Bacon quiche. Perfect place to catch up with friends over a meal and beer. The only thing lacking is that it is a non-AC place.

Good food but...

Good food but service could have been quicker and more responsive. When we went just two people were serving and there were quite busy, I had to wait for 10 minutes before they filled ice to my iced tea!

But the food is of good quality, try their deserts.

Nice joint

The decor is quaint and simple , yet inviting. The food good and the service personalised.

The salads were good and the starters really nice. The main course particulaely the chicken dish was not upto the mark. It was hard. The mocktail was not very good, but overall a good experience

Pastas and Salads are Great

I have been to this place only once and I had tried out the Arriabiata Pasta. I relished it and my other friends who took salads were equally good too. The assortment of salads even looked great. Nice place to hangout with friends. spacious as well.

Blown away by the food

I read all 33 reviews on this site before going to Road Trip last night. Thought I'd sample the complimentary rolls and the lamb meatballs and make a polite exit (I had to meet a bunch of people there). Instead, I ate my way through half the menu... olive-stuffed chicken (worth trying), pigs in the blanket (pure happy), lamb meatballs (yum - best of the apps), parmesan walnut pear salad (lovely!), beef stroganoff (yummm), apple pie a la mode (no complaints), and the banoffie pie (best I've ever had). The decor is plain in a good way - clean, white, light. Food is clearly the star in this joint, followed by the service. My friend asked for something that is no longer on the menu, and the waiter didn't skip a beat - made it happen with a smile. How often does that happen in Bangalore?! Honestly, I felt as though I had gone over to a friend's place for dinner. I'm going back again soon to use the free wireless and eat my way through the rest of the menu.

Disappointing

Given the reviews was very disappointed.
The lasagna was horrible - tasted like it was made a few days ago. The accompanying garlic bread was not garlicy or fresh.
The mayo with the chips was stale.
The only thing good was the tangy prawns and the watermelon juice...

Substance Over Style

I've been a regular at Road Trip since 2009, when I moved to Bangalore from New York City. Since then I've noticed that there are many regulars at RT, both Indian and foreign, who keep coming back time and again.

What makes RT special is the focus on the food itself. I've noticed in the "international cuisine" scene here that there is a lot of style over substance. Some places balance the two perfectly, like Olive Beach, but for the most part I have been disappointed by the amount of "pretty" places serving substandard fare.

It seems most RT regulars come back for their favourites and I am certainly no different, however if you want to substitute an ingredient, or even suggest a dish not listed on the menu, they will try to accommodate your wishes. A perfect example of this is the vegetable scrambled eggs I've asked for and loved for a late weekend brunch.

The menu specials are always being updated on the blackboards, and my current suggestions are the savoury crepes filled with ricotta and spinach, served with a tomato basil sauce. For a first visit I suggest you start simple (i.e.pastas, salads, etc) &, you won't be disappointed.

Poor customer relationship

The manager/owner told us not to come next time. This is because a bottle of packaged water was billed Rs. 50. As per Indian government it should not cost more than MRP. He agreed and reduced it in the bill but told us not to come next time.

Never want to go again in my life. The manager asked us not to come again since we asked to change the bill. A bottle of packaged water costs Rs 50. As per Indian government it should not cost more than the MRP. He agreed to reduce it but told us not to come next time.

Below Expectations

The both of us decided to try this place out after reading about it on Burrp!
I ordered the chicken stuffed with spinach topped with mushroom sauce. The chicken was slightly rubbery but the spinach had a good flavour and the mushroom sauce was commendable.
CG ordered the chicken ravioli which according to him was not very good and could be improved.
We asked for an almond meringue which wasn't as yummy as I thought it would be !
I would love to visit again - because of it's quaint nature and simple decor - as well as to try the other dishes on the menu ! Hopefully post that visit - it'll be a positive review.

Fun experience!

although the place is hard to find at first (located in a service lane), its nice once your in...beer by the mug is very reasonable...very decent mocktails (we had mohitos) and delicious food...and what's more, they give complementary garlic scones with every drink!!!
the only minus is the very tiny screen which was very vexing on match-day...

nice place for a good evening

the food is great and so is the beer. Their complimentary bread at the beginning is really soft and nice.
The place is not very visible and they need to do something about the board and lights outside. Its a cheaper option to woodstock which is just down this road
I recommend - fish in a bag, lamb meatballs in tomato sauce, chicken stuffed with spinach, bonaffle pie, and that first chicken starter in the menu. even the cold coffee is great!

Still trippin'

I went to this cozy little place, located in Domlur, just off 100ft road this Sunday. As the two of us made ourselves comfortable, we thought the menu didn't really have a lot on offer. For instance, there was only one soup mentioned. I guess the owner caught our confused look and came to our table. He then suggested the other varieties of soup that he could make for us. Flexibility...+1.

We loved the bread or little croissants that were placed on the table...for free. +1

The chicken olive we ordered was cooked to perfection and was presented wonderfully. +1

When we ordered for Pasta, the owner suggested that he can divide it in two plates if we needed too. We did. +1

And the pastries. Heavenly pastries. We ate two there and packed two for home. +1

There was no service tax of 10% levied on the bill. +1

A mug of beer just costs 80 bucks. +1

I guess it's 7/5 for now. But heck, just Rs. 1000 for food for two from soup to dessert + 2 mugs of beer, they do deserved it. Will crawl back in, soon.

Hit the road Jack

? Hit the road Jack & don’t you come back no more, no more, no more, no more? started playing in my head the moment I sent away that awful Basil presto spare ribs. It was a busy Friday & we had been all around the town looking for a piece of hardware for our household. By the time we finished our purchase our blood sugar was going down with the Sun & we were in the vicinity of quite a few restaurants in Ashok nagar. It was too early for Hae Kum Gang, Plan B was ruled out coz of a recent visit & definitely we were in no mood for an INR295 Caesar Salad at Olive Beach. After some brainstorming we drove towards Woodstock Indira Nagar & accidentally found Road Trip on our right, a few hundred meters before our original destination. We had never been there & there was no reason to scoot forward .My WHY NOT this place? was followed by her “SURE!!” …in the next few minutes we were sitting at a table of our choice.

I had never been on a road trip in the USA, hence I cannot comment on the concept reproduced here. Special menu on a blackboard, hanging motorcycle dynamo lights, cement flooring, a semi open kitchen with a beer- mocktail bar right on the other side of it influence the ambience. The service was quick but the waiter did nothing beyond bringing food to our table.

The complimentary soft bun basket with a salty butter center was a great start. The draught beer was crisp & I managed a couple of pitchers smoothly. Virgin Pinacolada was overly sweet, but the cold coffee that followed recovered her taste buds. Caesar chicken salad made out of Romaine lettuce was mixed with a very mild dressing that did not balance the bitterness of the leaves. Upon pointing this out to our waiter, he left with the salad, only to return after 2 minutes with the salad in the same state on one hand & a small dressing dip in another for us to help ourselves. Sautéed beef & Grilled beef were more like identical twins, they tasted almost the same, & the only differentiator was their respective prefixes. Basil presto spare ribs for main course was inedible. Chicken Schnitzel being a crumb fried dish should be crisp, but ours was soggy & only apple pulp saved it from becoming yet another disappointment. Chicken stuffed Ravioli in mushroom crème sauce was fantastic & was by far the best from their kitchen. Lemon Meringue pie had a dry crust, but I liked the lemon curd that topped it. Chocolate Roulade barely managed to pass as the sponge cake was slightly watery.

The final bill had to be reworked a couple of times as the numbers were not right. Accidents do happen on a road trip, but still people take the road. I might take this road again someday, sometime for the love of Ravioli at least.

Nice Place; Very "Herbs and Spices"

I have been wanting to visit this place for ages and finally my friend and I made it there yesterday. The restaurant is a small one with simple clean cut furniture and a black board menu listing the food items available. No sooner were we seated, than the waiter brought us the drinks menu - a laminated sheet of paper with the names and pictures of drinks on it. We scanned through the limited choices and I settled on a Tomato Juice and Worcestershire Sauce drink (Virgin Mary by name). My friend chose a Mint Lemonade. For starters we chose an Olive wrapped around Chicken dish. The drinks arrived quite quickly and we sipped ours and nibbled at bread while we waited for our starter. This, when it arrived, looked as it tasted, extremely filling and after one each (the plate held six) we reluctantly decided that to eat any more would ruin our appetite for the main course and so, pushing the plate to one side, concentrated on finding suitable main courses. My friend finally settled on a plate of Lamb Chops and I chose a Pork Schnitzl with Apple Sauce. The food arrived after a short wait and my friend proceeded to empty the contents on his plate. I on the other hand, peered at mine with dismay, as I had never eaten Apple Sauce before and didnt like the look of it now. Anyway, I downed a schnitzl with a little of the sauce and I must admit that the dish was excellently prepared. We then ordered dessert - a Coffee Mousse and a Chocolate Roulade. Both tasted lovely and both the dessert and the food on offer reminded us of Herbs and Spices. A brief chat with our very pleasant waiter confirmed that not only had the decor (this place had been designed as a biker's paradise) but also the management changed. Maybe the new owners are Herbs and Spices was our thought. Anyway, we enjoyed our desserts, downed the last of our drinks and then called for the very reasonable bill. The ambience of this place is ok. Its certainly neat and clean but not very theme oriented, save for a large picture of BMW bikes on one wall. The music is good. The service is fine and the food is well-prepared. The prices are reasonable. The crowd is super-casual (shorts and T-Shirts or Denims and T's). My guess is that it is the local Indiranagar/Domlur crowd for whom this is a popular hang out joint. I don't think I will return here though, as there doesn't seem anything that I specifically liked or that is specifically unique. It is however a nice place to go to, at least once and certainly there is no fault to find.

Good food and lovely dessert

This place has some lovely food with the person in-charge being around all the time to suggest different things and even make some new for you. The menu is old cafe style written on a board and adds a personal touch as if someone woke up early morning and thought of what special stuff to cook for the day :)

The food is excellent and has decently large servings...and their desserts are amazing...in response to the earlier query...their baklava is awesome...simply melts which is the hallmark of any good dessert :)

All in all and lovely place though slightly expensive for a regular visit!

Lovely food, loads of dessert :)

In recent years, there has been a sudden implosion of Italian restaurants in Bangalore. Walk anywhere in Indiranagar or Kormangala and you will stumble upon one such restaurant every two-three streets. It's quite difficult to stand out in this milieu of restaurants, but Road Trip was a refreshing change.

After many phone calls, wrong turns and nearly giving up, my friends and I managed to locate this place thanks to a helpful young woman. Getting here is a little tricky, so speak to someone who knows the way before you embark on your journey. The place is dominated by motorbike memorabilia. Instead of lights, bike headlights hang from the ceiling (Pretty cool huh?).

While the menu is not the most extensive in the business, there are quite a few interesting choices. For starters we ordered the crostini. It was fairly good but nothing spectacular.

In the main course, I ordered the Tagliatelle Primavera (Rs.215)
This was a wheat based flat noodle pasta which is an in-house
specialty. I'm sad to say that it was disappointing. While there were some herbs and spices in it, the overall taste was rather bland. There are much nicer things to order in the menu and you may want to give this the miss. Ra ordered the Veg Shahslik (Rs. 215).
This contained rice, grilled vegetables and a lovely sauce. The zucchinis were especially great. However, the entire dish tasted distinctly Indian: the spices, the gravy and the ubiquitous paneer.

KK ordered the chicken lasagna (Rs. 250) which was quite good. There was enough cheese to satisfy any cheese lover's appetite but not so much as to overwhelm the dish. The chicken, sauce and vegetables had their own distinct taste which blended beautifully. Pri ordered the bacon quiche tart (Rs. 190). The serving was smaller than the other dishes but it tasted lovely. There was a strong spinach element in this dish which I loved.

SJ ordered the boneless stuffed chicken (Rs. 250). Wonderful, cheesy garlicky overtones. The chicken itself had a gorgeous texture. The boiled potatoes that they served with these deserve a special mention. They were grilled lightly and a mild sprinkling of herbs made this the best boiled potatoes I have had in a long time. I loved the fact that they paid such attention to small details.

I now come to my two favourite dishes of the day. Shubhi ordered the Wheat Margerita Pizza (Rs. 215) and I insist that anyone who visits this place try it.

The pizza is HUGE, the crust is crisp and light, they have olives and other toppings and the taste is quite mind blowing. I would go back for this alone. This and the chocolate fondant. The dessert menu at Road Trip is quite extensive and exotic (huge brownie points in my book). The servings are very filling and should satisfy most appetites. Since we were so full, three of us decide to split a dessert.

We ordered the chocolate fondant (Rs.100) which requires a 25 minute wait. The dessert was humongous (please see the picture to gauge how humongous it was). Its a baked spongy chocolate cake with loads of ice cream. It's a little hard to go wrong with chocolate and ice cream and they definitely don't. I wish I could have tried the other desserts because they all sounded so good. (If you do try any of them, let me know how it was).

The loo here is fairly clean but not great. All in all, a satisfying experience and if you are in this side of town, you should check it out.

Good food, good vibe

I loved this non pretentious place tucked away in some nondescript street in Indiranagar. The rumor mill says that it is owned by DJ Nikhil Chinnappa.

I went there last night with a couple of buddies. While they only had one beer on the tap - Fosters, it was served chilled in a pitcher. So full marks for that. While you won't find a strong ambiance, the place does have hints of a bike/road tripper setup. The lights hanging from the ceilings are bike headlights and the main door handle is a bike handle.

Moving onto the food part, I ordered the Pumpkin Raviolli and it was very tasty. Even the starters were decent - we had a Crostini and Baked Mushrooms.

They even gave us one last round of drinks (after much begging by us), but I'll give them a point for caving into our demands ;-)

Overall a good place if you are in the vicinity.

Homely European food

Roadtrip is this restaurant near a cosy corner in Indiranagar and serves some of the most authentic continental cuisine without too many bells and whistles. My favorites for vegetarians
Starters
Crostini (amazing with a blend of onions, bell peppers and mozzarella)
Battered baby corn
Bruschetta

Main course
Veg Shashilik - grilled skewers of vegatable served on a mild gravy and rice - this is probably the best shashilik in town
The thin crust magarita pizza - freshly baked and served oven hot - melts in your mouth, must try!

Desserts - keep room for the desserts, they are heart warming and very freshly made. Go for the apple tarts or the chocolate fondant (needs 30 minutes) - but is very nicely made and is a sinful mix of hot chocolate lava cake with freezing ice cream!

Note: This place does not serve alcohol, but the draught beer is very nice and fresh and so are the mocktails - albeit being a bit steep costing 80 bucks.

Overall, a great cosy and homely experience. Good going guys!

Roadtrip...in the real sense!

Had lunch at Roadtrip yesterday after having heard a lot about it from several people. We were quite disappointed with the look and feel of the place as we walked in for an early lunch. Seems like they have used the name of the restaurant to cut a lot of corners on the decor. While we weren't expecting a fancy upmarket place but run down furniture, no air-conditioning and a couple of biking posters wasn't quite what we were expecting. More so because the prices are not exactly rock bottom.
A little put off by the place, we ordered a Chicken and Ham Whole wheat pizza which definitely did not disappoint. The pizza was fresh, the tomato base was excellent as was the flavour (and quantity) of the toppings. A a little high on the cheese though- (and that too for a cheese lover like me!) . Ordered a draught beer and a virgin mojito as well. Decided to give the desserts a miss and head to Spoonful of Sugar instead.
I might go back here to sample some more of their menu as some of the dishes sounded great and would also taste good if the pizza was anything to go by. Only wish they would clean up the place a little bit and improve on the quality of the staff . We had a waiter pounding on a bag of ice trying to crush it, (probably used in my virgin mojito!) as background for our lunch conversation!!

For the price, I think the food is exceptional. The service is consistant. The pizza is great. I have never tried their dessert so donno. I have never felt like cribbing with the food I have had there. the menu is brief and tasty ( atleast whatever I have had).

Comfort food !

Went to Road Trip last night, and loved the food.The simple flavors, balanced with the freshness of the meat and veggies added to the appeal.We had the Stuffed Chicken ( stuffed with spinach ), which came with a side of salad and mash potato.Loved it.The salad had too much mustard for my liking though.
We also ordered the Vegetarian Shaslik, which was a delight.Didn't expect it to be so good, but it was.The flavors were different with fresh herbs in the rice, and interesting veggies on the skewer.
We were too full for dessert, but will return soon to try that too.
All in all, a must do if you are in Indiranagar for a casual, comforting meal in a no fuss set up.

live it up here

I wasn't blown by the decor of the place but that was well made up for when the food arrived. The Beacon and Cheese Wrap was out of the world. The cheese sauce in the wrap was made to perfection and very light too. With appetizers and main course, there were generous helpings of oven fresh garlic breads. About the main course, we went for the Chicken breast with Spinach filling and Fillet of fish in mustard and lemon sauce. It was a perfect ten as far as the taste went. With the veggies on the side, good portions of meat and bread basket I would also call this good value for money. And then the dessert! We opted for the Chocolate Fondant. The menu itself warns you in advance that it takes time to serve this. If you have the time and the patience, which we fortunately did, the Fondant is a chocolate lover's dream come true. Over all a great place for a laid back meal.

Pretentious

The menu is very attractive - blackboard & all. They say it changes daily - I will never find out as I have no plans of eating there again. The entrees have fancy names, they come out all fancy packaged & are fancily priced too. But - "Where is the taste? Taste kaha hai?"
I ordered the fish in a packet(or cover or whatever). Came out super jhatak looking, grilled or steamed in a cover made from tin foil. I tore the packet open all expectant & found 2 fillets of fish about 2x2 inches each. What hit me instantly was the amount of garlic they had thrown into this. The odor & taste of garlic & lemon was overwhelming. The fish tasted funky as well so I guess the over the top seasoning may have been to conceal something. Safe to say I wasn't impressed - you have to try really hard to put me off something that has fish in it & these guys were super successful.
The wife ordered gnocchi in arabiatta sauce. There were no more than 3 pieces of gnocchi in the dish, the sauce was average at best.
Our friends ordered some chicken & some risotto. I wanted to sample some of the chicken. This plan was quickly dropped with one look @ the portion. There was barely enough there for a small kid let alone a full grown man. The feedback on the risotto was that it tasted like curd rice with some Italian herbs. My friend was unable to finish off all of it - how I will never understand. There were barely a couple of spoonfuls in there anyway.
The food is average, the portions are minuscule & the prices are very high for what they serve. There are many better options in the Indiranagar area for someone who wants to sample Italian or other continental cuisine. Little Italy, FQ Bistro & 100Ft come to mind immediately.

Good Trip

The place gave an impression of work done in hurry...may be the guy was in a hurry but to be fair the food is good. I must admit that the bacon wrapped prawns were the better one's i have had. The food is really good and my sincere suggestion is to make the place a little cozy and comfortable. It does not go with the food served.

A Simple Meal

A simple meal is not too much to ask for in Bangalore anymore but before that you need to know one thing. When I visited Road Trip the first time, it was closed. The second time, it was closed and unbelievably the third time also it was closed.

So first thing to note about Road Trip is that it is closed on TUESDAYS and all the three times I attempted to go to Road Trip was on a Tuesday :)

Moving on, when I finally stepped into the restaurant, it was a simple table-chair-couch concept. There were some cool bikes put around the restaurant. Nothing too jing-bang, but what I found interesting was that all the lamps that hung from the ceiling were actually headlights. Cool right?

So then we sat down and did our usual 'This looks good but .. um.. this also looks good'. Finally we started off with the Bruschetta, which was GREAT. The bread was not too hard, the tomatoes were super fresh and they were topped with even more fresh basil and Parmesan cheese.

They used to serve alcohol until recently but not anymore. But there's beer, soft drinks, fresh lime soda etc.

After that, main course just added to the experience. Our main course order was Boneless Stuffed Chicken, Penne Arabiatta, Chicken stuffed with Spinach and Veg Magarita Pizza. All of the dishes were delicious. Boneless Stuffed Chicken, which is what I had, was so yummy! It was chicken.. wait for it.. STUFFED with minced chicken and it was served in CREAMY creamy sauce along with salad and mashed potatoes. My #1 recommendation for non-veggies. The pizza would be my recommendation for veggies as they were crispy, light and tasty.

We skipped dessert as the main course portions were more than adequate for even good eaters. So we got the bill and we were pleasantly surprised. Each dish costing about Rs. 175-200, was great for the quality of food we got.

Service was great - prompt, attentive, suggestive. Ambience is simple, sometimes music, sometimes not. Very nice place to catch up with old friends as you can hear each other talk :)

They accept credit cards & they don't deliver.
But remember, SHUT on tuesdays! :)

A definite recommendation for a simple meal. Let me know if you second that.

What a mismatch

Bar?... it only serves Beer! The first time i went there dining (after reading the reviews ofcourse), i couldnt enter the place. Its got a very sad, closed and a Tea Shop feeling.
I went a few weeks later to try the food, not much on variety part. Again very small, noisy place....the shocker was the value for money. Any dish prices above 150/-.
I agree the food is good, but not out of the world. Why would I pay so much for a food that I would get in a decent Hotel with much better ambience.
Its ok to try, but Iam sure I wont go there next time.

Good food, laid back ambience

This is a place where you go for good food! It is very simply furnished but is comfortable. They concentrate on the quality of food which is consistently good. It has become my 8 year old son's favorite restaurant. They are gracious about accepting problems with food and will easily take it back and get you something else. The desserts are also very good. The breads that are complimentary are made very well and are absolute comfort food. Service is prompt and unobtrusive. All in all, I would highly recommend the place if you want to have a bite outside and are not too hung up on the ambience.

Best quiche

Great quiche for those non-vegetarians who dont mind what specie is cooked. Simple looking restaurant serving great food. Beware, you cant eat if its cold. So, if you plan to take it away - not a good idea. The thin crust Pizzas are also quite tasty and meaty. Overall a good place to hang out occassionally and for those who dont care the wallet, it can be a regular place. This restaurant is closed on Tuesdays... so keep this in mind to decide on the venue to dine out.

Why did we go there?

Ah this one is very confusing. Why did we go there? Me and my GF have no idea. Anyways, we went it. The place is a very simple looking restaurant. There are picures of hardley davidson bikes. There was a yezdi parked inside. The look was very simple yet appealing enough for us to stay and order something to eat. I ordered fish and chips, it was some veg stuff for my GF. No it was pasta. The fish was amazing. For some time I forgot to speak and was just eating. All in all, a laid back place. Good to hang out for lunch. Its quite and nice.

Thanks Foodyfoodpecker

I have heard of the place, and if I could get a good omelet with an awesome side of hashbrowns, I would not mind there not being any meat. How are the hashbrowns?

Check out The Egg Factory on St.Marks Road. I think your problems of a breakfast place would be answered by this place. They do not serve meat though...But all else in place for good breakfast. Check them out on Burrp for the reviews...

Desperately Seeking Breakfast

So I am an American who has called Bangalore home since 1994. I feel that Bangalore has so many great places to eat and outside of Mexican food, you can get a pretty decent eclectic variety of cuisine from all over. And I forgive the Mexican bit because I don't think that you get good Mexican east of Arizona. But what I miss the most about being here is good old fashion American Diner Breakfast. Now before a bunch of people shout Koshy's, let me say, I know, I know. That is what I deal with, but honestly, it is not that great. So wait, this was a review of Road Trip, I digress.

I ended up at Road Trip with another breakfast seeker, and we were late into a hang-over Sunday and did not really have any hopes for breakfast but I had really enjoyed the food the time before (the prawns are amazing, and great portions.) Anyhow, the owner himself came over and took our order. Pleasantly surprised to have someone who actually might answer this question honestly I asked him what he would recommend. My friend butted in first and asked if he served breakfast. He said he did not but that he would make it if we wanted. I was doubtful. But he suggested that he make an omelet with our choice of 2-3 eggs and whatever we wanted inside. Bacon, sausages, potatos on the side (this was not hash browns but still). The fresh bread that he brought was exquisite and whispered of butter and all good things. While the onions were not fully cooked and the sausages were those little tiny ones (not Blore Ham shop, yum!), it was the fact that he offered to do this for us that was so awesome. So, yeah, the place looks like it took a few too many Road Trips, I feel like this is going to be a hot spot to keep an eye on. They are serving up great food at good prices and have the flexibility that is not found in good old Bangalore yet.

Still hope that someone opens up a nice breakfast joint though!

awesome food

We have been twice to RT and both times we have really enjoyed our experience.

The decor is nice and casual, the menu on the black board gives it a very authentic italian look. Choices are good - we tried the olive rolled chicken for starters and thats a must have item there. It was made just right.

in case you dont find menu of your choice you can always ask for what you want. Missus wanted penne with cream, cheese, mushroom, sun dried tomatoes and olives and the chef served it. It tasted fabulous.

In all a very cool place to de stress and enjoy a nice casual evening.

Fading Away

I remember raving about RT when it first opened up: the awesome decor (old motorcycles parked around, motorcycle headlight-lamps, etc) and their great food. They used to make a really mean Caesar's Salad back then. Unfortunately, the place seemed to have fallen on less-happy times when I visited last. The food seemed quite disappointingly average, and while service wasn't too bad, that can perhaps be attributed to the fact that we were the only ones in there.

Only angels allowed!

Based on the American Bikers' Club theme, this place offers continental and american cuisine. And not to mention that this place is lit up with motorcycle headlights!
