Worst Buffet Ever. Period.

Nice ambiance - and that is the only nice thing I am saying about this place. Everything else is just too pathetic. When I asked the waiter if he will serve Roti at the table, he pointed to a hot box that had a big stack of hard chappatis and that's the main course..I can go on and on but I'll just say that by the time I finished I was glad it was over.

Very Average Place.

I visited this place yesterday for lunch (Sunday). The outdoor seating arrangements has a nice and beautiful ambiance, with a waterfall on one side and streams of water all over the ground. However, the seats were not comfortable.

The staff is courteous and attentive. But the food was a complete let down. We opted for the buffet where the starters were served on the table. Except for the deep fried fish fillets, nothing else tasted good. The cocktails and buffet spread weren't impressive as well.

As has been pointed out by another reviewer earlier, I too hate restaurants who levy a service charge on the bill. We paid close to 800 Rs (10% of the gross bill) as service charge!! If we can consider this as a tip, its way too high. And given the quality of food served, I don't think its worth it all.

All in all, I wouldn't want to visit the place again or recommend to anyone else.

Below Average Place With Bad Service

OK place with bad service and rude attitude. Avoid this place unless you want to burn your pocket for bad service and a bad experience.

Very bad experience -- will not visit again

We had been to this property this week for a buffet lunch. The experience was very bad.

Pros:
1. Lunch buffet during the week days is well priced about Rs 350.
2. Easy to reach

Cons:
1. The quality of the food is bad.
2. Both veg and non veg starters are tasteless and very bad.
3. Overall it is a complete let down.
4. The ambiance is NOT AT ALL GOOD. Many reviews have mentioned that it is very good but that is NOT TRUE.
5. This place will be ideal for boozing (liquor prices are sky high though) during night/dinner but certainly not for lunch or for only dinner.
6. Parking is a BIG problem in this locality - Please take valet parking else you will be in BIG trouble.

A pleasurable experience!

Making a reservation for two on a Saturday, we went sans expectations since what is shown on the internet is not how it always is!
But, the five hours spent there turned out to be delightful!
The ambience is both appealing and captivating, we felt marooned on a little island far, far away from the maddening crowd.
The food is satisfying, chicken wings being a must-try.
Service, though, is painfully slow. Calling out for their attention everytime you need something is annoying!
The washroom is a good walk away, considering the innumerable pints down the throat(Which is a big turndown)!
Overall, a wonderful experience, minus the service, minus the flies hovering over your head and the food.

If dark dingy spaces are your thing, then Island is for you. I did not dig it. I was expecting a much more upscale place not a dive.

Unhygienic Bathrooms

Went in with friends for a night out. Left it quickly after I visited the rest rooms. My pet peeve is unhygienic bathrooms. Enough said, don't want to get sick.

try out guys its a nice place

I went to island during its opening last year.I guess the management is same as of the erstwhile Beach on 100 Ft Road ,Indiranagar.
I simply love this place.The ambience is awesome and you feel good being here.
The food is good especially the Mediterranean and the Italian. They also serve American and continental as well.
The Music is good and it's a nice party place.
The menu is lavish and you need lot of visits to try all the dishes here.

Weekday buffet was average

The place has been done up quite well and has the ambience of a relaxed lounge bar. However, we ended up trying the weekday buffet and found that having a meal while seated at a very low table is not easy.

The spread was okay - with soups, 2 starters each veg/non-veg, 3 chicken and 1 fish dish with a mix of continental, oriental and indian. Dessert counter had fresh fruit, some pasties and ice cream. The non-veg starters were chinese chicken winglets and some chicken kababs - both very ordinary and not served hot.

The main course was okay and so were the desserts. Considering the charge of 300+tax, it was okay. Perhaps they should focus on one or two cuisines only rather than having 3. And serve the food hot.

What made the lunch a bit annoying was the presence of a group of employees of a computer firm from Inner Ring Road - they thought the buffet area was their office cafeteria and were standing around eating right there, blocking other people's movement. Despite complaints via the staff, they didn't budge. One of the women kicked up a fuss about a fly being spotted at the dessert section, sadly she did nothing about the pests from her company.

Buffet - more value for the buck

Went here on a Wednesday for the Buffet lunch, the outdoor seating is great but since we were such a large group of 20 we had to settle for the indoor seating which was not great (dingy and stale)
Still wondering why I rate it a 4, the food made up for it. The salads was one of the best I have had at any buffet. The starters were good and the spread was not partial to either veg/non-veg. The main course was one of the best in buffets I have had. The thai curry, rice and noodles deserve special mention. Where it was a let down is that they dont have freash breads being served and you have to make do with stale chappatis in a hot case.
The desserts were dissapointing and the only thing I enjoyed were the fresh fruits and ice cream

But all this at 370 a plate I felt was good value for money

Not that Great...!!

After seeing such rave reviews, I chose this place to Celebrate my Birthday... which was yesterday and we went for dinner... The entrance is tiny n you almost miss it, cos there are other restaurants on the same lane...!! As requested we decided to be seated at the rooftop to enjoy the view...which was good....But nothing great... wat was disappointing was that u could see the traffic outside n hear all the honking....! The music did not match the ambiance... We decided to order for some starters n to our surprise no matter which starter we chose they didn't have it..(n it was only 8pm) so went with anything that was on the list...we wanted to try something different n decided to order for a stake for the Entrees n they themselves admitted that the beef would be hard n not soft enough..thus had no choice but to order the usual.. By this time we decided to skip the desert..cos I'm sure they wont have had that as well...All in all the place didn't meet our expectations.. N there was nothing great about either the ambiance or the food, except for the bill, which was definitely not worth it....!!

Island in the city!

I visited the Island for dinner on a weeknight. We were seated on the upper part of the restaurant so the view from there was surreal, with the lights and the music complimenting the night time ambience.

We started off with the cilantro chilli chicken and chicken nachos. The cilantro chicken was delicious, juicy with a more than generous dose of cilantro, finger licking yum! The nachos were a delight, loaded with sour cream, jalapenos, olives, juicy chicken, we attacked them delightedly!

We had the corn fed peri peri chicken with spanish rice for the main course. The serving was generous again with 3 skewers of very beautifully cooked and peri peri flavoured chicken. The spanish rice was very unique and complimented the chicken .

I had a lovely dinner here and hope to be back to sample other offerings on thei

The buffet from hell

Don't ever go here for the lunch buffet! Simply put, it sucks. Let me summarize why in 4 key points
- Ambience: The outdoors restaurant seating is quite okay and conveys the theme of a beach island adequately. The inner restaurant however is just a sham. We were seated at a inner table that was dark and dingy and which was facing a wall that was covered with a shabby black cloth. Island? Its more like a jail.
- Customer Service: None absolutely. The waiters just stand around looking blankly. There is no table service, with every course being served at the main table.
- Queue management: Zilch. The restaurant was filled with lunch goers, and there was absolutely zero line management. The buffet table location is situated in such a way that it is always going to cause a traffic jam and loads of confusion. They ran out of food at least 4 times and when the food did come, it leads me to my fourth point
- Food: The non-vegetarian items were uncooked. I had the awful experience of almost eating raw chicken, the rest of the items were equally uncooked or semi-cooked. Non of the items were marinated in the gravy so you hardly could taste the spices. As for the desserts, well, my office canteen which buys Rs 5 pastries from the local bakeries serves better fare.

All of my above comments are purely meant to reflect on the buffet lunch. I dont know how the a-la carte menu or the night ambience is. But from my experience today, I don't think I would bother to find out either.

Thanks

Expensive Lounge Bar

The food is good overall - especially the appetizers. However they messed up the Mojito twice over and considering this is a lounge bar, that was quite shocking.
Get a table on the outside by the waterfall...cause the inside area is uncared for.
We were sitting at the sofas and had to stare straight into tacky vases with artificial flowers... which is quite unforgivable considering the price pay for a joint like this.

Impressive Ambiance, Good Food

I have walked past this restaurant many times, but not once have I been curious enough to look at the walls for more than half a second. When I stepped in for that Sunday Brunch, the first time, it was a happy jolt of surprise. The hustle and bustle of the street is suddenly cut off, there is a drop in temperature, with a steady and small water-fall on your right, and lounging island-ish atmosphere welcomes you.

A good spread of starter varieties are plonked in front of you time to time, which is the best part of the brunch, after the Mojitos. A typical buffet with an assortment of dessert that makes you greedy and pick one from all, even if you can't finish it all.

A happy way to spend a lazy Sunday.

Brunch time!!

Had the best Brunch last Sunday with husband and brother. Nice, beautiful ambiance, great spread of continental food, courteous staff and some nice cocktails. The buffet spread in particular was quite awesome. I had a perfectly relaxing Sunday brunch after a long time. Highly recommend the brunch to fellow Burpers. Just a suggestion to The Island management, it'll be great if you could better the seating arrangements as the seats are not really that comfortable (as has been pointed out by another reviewer earlier). All good otherwise :)

Awsome place

The ambiance here just blew me away. Midst the bustle of Indiranagar, the Island transports you to another world. Unfortunately for me, that's really where the charm of the place ended. Personally, the music they were playing really killed the evening. I'm a huge fan of house and techno, but when there's a babbling waterfall right next to you, it's the last thing you want to hear. The food was average. Although it was presented well

Forced tip.......outright stupid

The experience at the restuarant was decent enough till we got the bill. Our total was 4600. With vat @ 14.5 % =667 and Service tax @ 10 % =460 . Who gave the management the prerogative to decide the service charge at 4.95 % of the total billed amount?=227?????? This is outright illegal. I protested on which i was shown a document for service tax as described by the government and which i believe is right and that is why i agreed to pay 10 % ST =460. What is this service charge factor? and who are you to decide how i gauge the service??? The guy attending to us (taking orders and directing service) was infact impeccable. I would even go to say that I havent come across anyone with some much energy and eagerness to suggest and speeden up service. I would be more than happy to tip the guy handsomely. But how can the management decide what is right and what is not??? The manager who came to explain had the audacity to say that everyone does it. WTF ??? I dont care how many or who does it but i need to do what is right....If you have the capacity to set up such a big restaurant in such a costly place dont try to skim of money with such cheap tactics...Service and ambiance was good and the food pretty decent but this part of the billing totally messed it up for me .....would never recommend any one the restaurants that use such tactics....
PS: the service charge was not mentioned in any of the menus provided

Below average food and dont care attitude manager

Been there for the corporate buffet.
Food was below average. Fish was tasteless. and the chicken starter was oil fried kebab. Biriyani was tasteless.

Sphagetti was also no different. altogether with the dont care attitude of Manager it spoiled our lunch

I feel there is a bit confusion over here. Our booking was at 1.15 and we reached around 1 pm itself.

No one offered us a table on top and neither soups and starters were served on the table.

Anyways happy to know that you guys took the review seriously. Hope We will have a better experience next time.

Thanks

Wonderful Sunday Brunch

Sundays are meant to sit back and relax. At The Island's sunday brunch, they ensure you do just that. Laid back atmosphere and excellent service was what I was treated to. The staff is very attentive and interactive, and that's really something that adds to your experience. The ambiance is nicely done. You tend to forget you're in the middle of busy Indiranagar! My only complaint would be with the seating. It does suit the theme well, but if you're looking to spend a couple of hours, it gets quite uncomfortable. I'm only referring to the low height wooden chairs we were seated on. The hammocks looked quite inviting! ;)
Coming to the food, I have to say I was impressed with the spread. A nice variety and I couldn't find a single thing I didn't like. Juicy chicken, crispy fish and shockingly the best Gobi manchurian I've eaten in my life! They offer you a fresh and exciting salad bar too.
The mocktails are very refreshing. I recommend the virgin pinacolada and the litchi cooler. Sets the mood for a sunday afternoon perfectly.
Do ensure you leave room for dessert. The spread is delightful.
Overall, a fantastic experience if you're just looking to sit back and enjoy your Sunday.

Amazing atmosphere! Decent food!

I gave my birthday party here (Aug 14), and got a table right in the middle. You'll love the hammocks, chairs, and the waterfall behind you (and the ground itself is elevated on wood, with water underneath).

Atmosphere wise, it was brilliant.

As for food, initially I ordered the non veg platter, and a chicken starter, neither of which were particularly impressive, but good on the whole. After that, I let my friend order, and on came chicken wings (good, and succulent), red sauce pasta (quite spicy actually), a veg mix (spicy, but nice).

On the whole, the food was decent, nothing particular memorable, but the atmosphere more than made up for it. Worth a revisit.

Marks for ambience

Really loved the ambience... but the service wasn't as good.
We had to wait quite a bit simple things like water, lemon wedges etc.
The food - The pasta and the pizze were nice, but the other dishes some weren't. So mixed reviews there too.
The good part was that 'The Island' seems to be quite happening now & I ended up meeting lots of people that night.

All said and done, I'll go again.

Awesome ambiance, great music, fantastic food infact there's absolutely nothing to fault this place on. Weekends get a little crowded so must reserve a place if you don't want to end up hanging by the bar. This has become my 'go to' place on Saturdays. Prices are a little steep and can be worked on by the Management, otherwise a really nice place.

Simply Awesome

I had gone to Island for the first time yesterday. We sat on the middle which had candle lights. The ambiance is really nice :) between the rock and water feels really nice :) Coming to the food part. We were confused about the food. so we asked the waiter itself to suggest some :) he was kind and was suggesting the food. we ordered a starter which was quite tasty and and quantity was also good. By the time we finished the starters itself we were full. and the main course also was good. Service was also good :) Overall experience was really nice :) I would like to go again :) as i want to try the grills n the bar seating which looks interesting :)

Open air, candle light and chilled margaritas

The island is one of those places, which would never make you feel dissatisfied.
A beautiful place with a beautiful ambience, and even better margaritas . I would definitely recommend it as a place for a delightful romantic evening or even hanging out with your girlfriends for some wonderful chitchat and nonstop drinks . Its affordable and their attention to detail and service is commendable :)... all in all a wonderful place which should not be missed from your bangalore itinerary or even if you are a local ....:)
and if i missed talking about the food... then that leaves you finger licking :) A definite worth a visit, for you would keep going back for more..:)

Bad Fiood and Bad service ( Went on a Sat Nite)

Well the decor looks really nice from the outside...went there on a saturday...packed place...went upstairs and sat there..we were probably 8 people...the seating area is not so good. We had to sit at 2 different tables but they were next to each other.Well i am a big guy (above 6ft tall) and found it really diffcvult to sit upstairs...
The waiters were too busy to serve us but they looked genuinely busy...probably blame the management.... Its like you place an order and it took really a long time to be served (including drinks)...food was not really worth it........Ordered nachos etc ..were served cold...my personal experience wasnt good.

Awesome Ambiance and Good Food

Just came back from a Team lunch in The Island.
I know many people here have described their ambiance as superb and I am also not an exception. There is just one word for their ambiance ..... 'Awesome'. Its a very relaxing environment that they have created.
Coming down to food we had opted for the Executive Lunch Buffet. The spread was decent, we ordered few drinks also and the team seemed to be delighted by the promptness of our waiter.
Food was average but yes their piazzas are just fantastic..... far better than a regular Pizza Hut or Domino .....
Would have liked to to see few Indian deserts as well in the menu. Hope it would be included soon.
One let down that I felt was there staff which seem to be in a hurry and rushed us to have the food quickly.
One word to the Management......Please make your staff realize that people want to spend some quality time when they come out to dine and don't like to be rushed. One more advice to the management to shift the buffet spread to a place which has got some space and people need not stand in long queues.

Waste of Time and Money

Have Been to Island twice and regret going there the second time as both the times the experience was not a memorable one .
The ambiance is great but the food and service are below average . We ordered a starter and a main course and the waiter served us both together . I tried telling the waiter to get the main after the starter he refused . The Spaghetti which was served to us 45mins after ordering was over cooked and tasteless and was sent back . They charged us for the spaghetti that we never ate .
Rice and so called sizzling grilled chicken were cold .
The staff is inexperienced as the waiters try to argue with us when v were not satisfied with the food .
Over all npt a great experience for the price we paid !!

Hopeless !

Had been there on a saturday night for the first time with high expectations .However , the food made me repent my decision.

My Orders - 1. Cheese Garlic Bread
2. Chicken and Cheese Skewer
3.Grilled Mediterranean chicken shish
4.Bacardi and Coke.

What i got - Garlic bread tasted very ordinary .. the bread was thick and cheese had little or no taste.. I have had authentic garlic breads at places both India and abroad to know the difference between good and bad.. Polishing the bread with only generous amounts of cheese and zero flavour does not qualify it as a Garlic bread.

Cheese and Chicken skewer is basically sheekh kabab served with mint chutney ,nothing else.

Grilled Mediterranean chicken shish was served on a sizzler and due to heat the rice stuck and hardened inside d plate ..The chicken served was so dry that we abandoned a part of it..Moreover,the menu did not mention anything about sizzler ..The chicken had more or less the same taste as the starter !!!!!

Besides, basic table etiquettes like serving glass of water without being asked was missing. The overall attitude of the stewards was very cold . This has nothing to do with the day being a Saturday . It reflects poor grooming of the staff by the Management.

Herbs&spice ,Woodstock,Creme & Crust ,Spiga or Olive offer much better service and food compared to this over hyped place.

This was our first and last visit.. It failed to impress me or my tastebuds..

Fantastic Corporate Lunch

This afternoon me and my team went over to The Island for a team building lunch.The food spread I must say catered to all of our tastes, they had freshly baked variety of breads with lots of fresh salad, the chicken wings and pizzas in the appetizers were my favorite.Main Course had options for Chinese, Thai, Indian and Continental dishes to choose from.But, apart from the food what I most liked about this place was the ambiance, the outdoor seating for lunch on a working day is a welcome change from other places where you have to sit holed up inside some dimly lit dinning room.

Had a great time!

First and foremost, compliments to the chef and the guy who was serving our dinner. All of our group had a great time. I had one of the yummiest pizza ever. I am tired of people not putting enough topping or making the pizza all about bread base, but this was just awesome preparation overall. Few of the folks who had finer taste in food loved the prawn dish and grilled starters. Also, star of the dinner was spaghetti marinara and chicken nasi goreng. Another thing which I kept us all very "happy" were the cocktails, we did wait for the first ones to arrive but after that the waiter just wowed us all with his exquisite service.

Awesomeness!!

Huge, sprawling space, comfy seating, criss-crossing rivulets of water, The Island is a true beauty and transports you to a Caribbean beach-side lounge the moment you enter. Loved the decor. The food stands out too. Though I have not had a full course dinner here yet, just drinks and bitings, I found the variety offered on the menu nice and the food quite tasty. Expecting a few friends to drop in from Mumbai and I know where to take them this Saturday night. Awesome place. Kudos to the team for coming up with unique beach themed restaurants.

Nice, but still...

Ambience is good, no denying that. This reminds one of the Banana Beach Bar in Koramangala. Starters were good as well, Service was also alright; however the main course was disappointing. If I've to narrow it down, it was some sort of sizzler which came with some skewered chicken. Nicely presented, but the chicken was dead dry. Had to abandon food there.
Drinks. Somewhere between just okay to awful.
Sorry 'The Island' management, I'd have to look else where now, in the evenings.

Hi,
We are glad that you liked the ambience of the place. We are glad that you liked the starters and the service of The Island. However we are sorry that the sizzler was not to your taste and dint enjoy your main course. Infact the skewered chicken is one of the very fast moving dishes at The Island. The design is fancy, and also served with a ample quantity. This is served with Rice/Noodles & French Fries/Mashed Potatoes, 3 Skewers - One of them comes hanging from the skewer holder and two skewers is placed under the rice and french fries

Also wanted to mention that Banana Beach Bar is a sister concern of the same company and so that association is there :)

We would love to have you again at The Island. It would be a pleasure to serve you better so that you have a complete great experience.

Thumbs up for this cool hangout place

Oh yes, I sure did have an awesome time with my teammates last week at The Island. Lovely setup and ambiance, courteous staff, soft music and a nice buffet spread, what else would you ask for while hanging out with friends! Would love to go there sometime in the evenings cause I just fell in love with the beach sort of setup.
Coming to food, the variety was good with breads instead of naan and roti for a change which was good. A note for the management, the salad could surely have been better and the food should be kept a bit warmer or else the actual taste tends to wane e.g dishes containing cheese or pesto like ingredients taste odd when not hot. Oh did I forget to mention that the chocolate cake and brownie was just fantabulously awesome :) . Try adding some Indian deserts to the deserts section, I am sure it would be well received by customers.
Service was good except that serving some items on the table really needs to be encouraged.
Overall a nice place to just relaaaaaax and spend a fun filled time with friends or teammates.
Do keep up the good job and keep improvising on the menu and service, am sure you guys would make it big :)

Great ambience, disappointing food

Went there on Sunday nite with friends.. Loved the ambience: excellent decor,lighting and music. Perfect for a relaxing Sunday dinner.
The food though was a complete letdown. We ordered the veg snack sampler and the veg sampler... And both were disappointing: cold, oily, and excessively spicy... Looks like the chef was on lal Mirchi OD mode...despite us requesting lesser spice in the second dish ordered. The main course : the island house salad was mediocre. The fancy Non veg kebab looked interesting and I heard it was v good... Sadly, being a vegetarian I didn't seem to get anything great to eat...
What could have improved? The service.... A fine place like this gets ruined if the response is slow and lethargic... And the food.... Did they run out of spices and make do with red chilli powder? Seriously, cold chilli onion rings isn't what I expected at a gorgeous setup like that...

Not So Bad Monday Night!!

I went there on a Monday night, for a friend's birthday. To my surprise, the place was packed. That's great news for the management! ;)

Anyway, I had a Cosmopolitan (which was quite delish), the birthday man had a Whiskey Sour & other friends had beers.

We ordered mostly snacks, but what surprised me that our server came to take our last order for food & drinks at 10:00 pm!! I mean, why would you want to take the last order an hour before closing? Half an hour is still understood, but an hour? Not happening.

The music was great, so was the ambiance. They've done up the place really well. I do want to come back for the lunch buffet, though. Have heard some good things about it. Hope they live up to it!!

Great Ambience, good food, service to be improved

Went there twice. Great Ambience and good food, well priced too.

The first experience was good, but yesterday the service was bad. The people were polite. The manager came by to ask if we needed anything but service was very disorganized. I think they forgot about one appetizer, extra rice, water and some items of replacement cutlery when cleariing old ones. So one was always waitinga and constantly reminding them of these things. For all these long waits, the seating is uncomfortable too.

I hope the management can improve the service.

Even the service mentioned above is not the best experience I will recommend going to once for the ambience and food.

Once and Not more

Good :

Ambiance - Relaxed atmosphere - Request for a seat next to the fountain

Bad :

Pathetic Service, Waited for 45 mnts for our drinks. The waiter says it is crowded and your drinks will take some time. WOW ! you pay Rs1250 for a Brunch and you really don't expect this kind of service.

Food : There are othere places that offer better food. The Prawn and the Fish starters were soggy. The Strawberry mocktail that was served 1st was very good so we thought of repeating it ...but guess what , it was BAD. Again blame it on the crowd.

Thre Brunch spread ain't great as well.

Verdict : Go there for the ambiance once and forget this place !

Lovely Time

Went here with the family for the Sunday brunch and had a lovely time. The vibe is really like a lovely island one quickly forgets that we are still in the heart of the city. The food is nice and what I liked was that most of the food was served to the table unlike other brunches where one has to keep getting up several times to serve oneself. Another thing I liked very much about this restaurant was that there were all sorts of people there. The totally IT youngsters, people that could be from page 3, couples, families with children, and senior citizens. I found the staff and waiters attending to each set of customers. Usually in some high end restaurants the staff only attend the the page 3 people and expats but this was not at all the case here. I loved the fact that even the kids and seniors had a great time here. Hope they keep up the good stuff. We will definitely visit again and would recommend this place to everyone to try atleast once.

Great Experience!

I went to The Island last Saturday and needless to say it was packed at around 9pm. Since we dint reserve a table, the hostess at the gate could not give us a table and requested us to stand at The Bar. The place has outdoors and indoors - Ambience I would say 10/10. Loved the whole water concept. We ordered for our first round of drinks at The Bar and fortunately the manager came and gave us a table after around 30 mins. The music was perfect for me as it was a Saturday night as the DJ was spinning some nice house tunes. Service was little slow - I guess it was more because the place was more than packed by around 10. We ordered a few starters and it was good. In the main course I ordered a sizzler which looked really fancy. Could not complete it as i was already full and had to share the same with friends.
Overall Great Experience. I ll definitely come back again.

Needs to be fixed!

Any restaurant we go to, we always check out three key elements - Food, Service and Ambience...so this friday after a long week of work, my hubby and I decided to unwind at The Island, Indiranagar. We didn't make reservations so when we got there, the manager said that the outdoor areas were booked but there was seating available indoors. We decided to go with it. The outdoor setting is well done and with the pleasant friday weather, it looked very nice. We were led in by a waiter to a high table. As we settled in, we realized that the table and the chairs were wobbly. The waiter got to fixing the table and he got us new chairs. Getting off the chair, my hubby's new jeans tore at the legs as a nail improperly secured to the chair was hanging out. Irritated, we got settled in our new chairs but wait, there were soaking wet! We asked to talk to the manager as the waiter was clueless about the situation. We waited for almost 10 minutes for the manager but he didn't show but we did meet the manager at the exit and we told him what had happened. His reaction was a sorry look and after a few words an offer to buy my hubby a pair of jeans! When we go to a restaurant that claims to be fine dining and charges us accordingly, we expect a certain attitude in the service, quality of the ambience and most importantly quality of the food. Now we never got to tasting the food here because the first two elements failed, terribly. Will we go there again...don't think so.

Good Place

Went there on a Monday Night, place was packed but did manage to reserve the place. The place looks very good. From the minute I entered I was greeted with a smile (Which was great). Ordered the "Pulled Chicken" & "Penne Alfredo". Was very happy with both the dishes. Ordered for a started but the guys forgot to get it which was not good. Over all the place + food + service is very nice. I wish the chairs were more comfortable, but I guess we cant get everything.

Just what Bangalore needed

It was such a refreshing experience to be at Island last Sunday, great ambience great food and amazing cocktails (do try the Jumbo cocktails), best thing is you can bring your kids for Sunday brunch. They have a playing area that keeps them busy while you enjoy drinks and music. I saw kids getting Spiderman tattoos and enjoying the water streams.
For people visiting in the evening they have an open Barbeque Grill and their barbeque prawns are to die for. Next thing I would like to try is the Lunch buffet.

What I want

To Cut it short the perfect place for me. Its very posh yet allows me to be myself. I love the food of The Island, specially the Nachos with lots of Cheese and Veg and other dips. Tried the flaming BBQ Sizzlers ... good stuff. Would try the deserts soon
Cant Comment on the cocktails as I always drink straight drinks.

What I felt

The Island for me is just what Bangalore needed, if you are in the city which always offers great weather this restaurant / lounge just adds to the flavour..
Unlike other restaurants what i like about this place is they have spaced it so well that you can get to make your own little space around your table, the ambience is an experience by itself.
Most of the menu you will see at the island is different and to be honest I was sceptical till I got my food, It was just awesome!!
Assured everyone who visits this place will write a review just as I did..

Undecided

I visited the place a month or so back. Had landed up for the Sunday Brunch. The ambiance is indeed very nice and relaxed.
We got a seating on the upper deck. The experience was downhill from there on. The food (starters) was served cold. Three times over. In spite of repeated complaints to the lady in charge, the starters kept coming in cold. And this is stuff that is coming straight from the bbq grill. How does one manage that? Credit where it is due, the grilled garlic prawns from the barbeque was sinfully delicious and the main course itself was decent.
BUT The waiter/s seemed ill informed about the offers and frankly a bit disinterested. We had to repeatedly try and get their attention before being attended to, and even then once in a way he would just walk off when being spoken to. Rude? or just badly trained? i dont know.
The food as mentioned, in itself was, i would like to imagine- decent. But you can never tell when it is bone cold and the experience was totally dampened by the abysmal service.
However i am reading rave reviews from others here so i am wondering if i caught the staff on a day off.
Am undecided if i should give it a second try.

Place to be.. Again & Again.

The Island, very conveniently located, is a place to unwind after a long day's work on weekdays. & a place to be charged up with high energy on the weekends. Its been so cozy with beachfront ambience and amazingly good at food.. This is by far the best atmosphere, most romantic setting you'll get in Bangalore

Island is a phenomenal place to start if one is looking for quality, quantity, ambience & service all in one place. Not only that it's full of quality drinks, some of which are difficult to find at any other place in Bangalore... The music is just awesome and highlight for us.... full points to you guys and keep rocking!!!

Ship-wrecked

Now here's an island, I wouldn't mind getting marooned on.
Visited the place on Saturday at around half past 4, but unfortunately the kitchen was closed. The ambience was stunning. Went back again today, 'cause I just had to check the place out.

Like I said earlier, the interiors are top notch and it has a very relaxed feel. I wish the chairs were a little more comfortable though.

The food was quite good. We started off with chicken nachos, wings, and the BBQ pizza. All quite good. The nachos especially.
Main course: I had the pulling chicken (or atleast I think that's what it's called), and I quite liked it. The rest of my friends had steaks, but were very disappointed with it.

All in all, definitely worth repeated visits. Service was excellent throughout. No complaints at all. Can't wait to go back.

I did visit again. On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Let's just say I'm a believer.
I had some sort of chicken crepe which was delightful. And for lunch, a dish that I can't seem to remember, but it had a bit of Spanish rice, sausages, potato wedges and vegetables. Amazing.
Maybe you can post the names of those dishes, or alternatively upload your menu here so that people will be able to see what it's called.

Great place to unwind, Good food!

The Island is a newly opened resto lounge in foodie heaven Indiranagar. The convenient location and beautiful look of the exterior beckoned me and we decided to head here on a Friday evening. The management I heard is from the recently closed The Beach lounge on 100 feet road hence the sand-y theme

Having reached around 8 p.m. we did not have to wait and the charming hostess led us in. Initial impressions of this place are outdoorsy, airy, beach themed and lots of water – fountains, panels under the floor, etc.

The seating areas are all over the place. They have larger tables in the open middle area as well as the closed floor. I also saw a charming tree house concept but alas it was for bigger groups so we skipped it. Next time’s the charm!

We started off with drinks and a starter as it was quite early for dinner. I settled for the Blue Lagoon cocktail & hubby went for the Long Island Ice Tea. To munch with the drinks, we chose the Kafta seasoned Cottage Cheese starter.

The Kafta seasoned Cottage Cheese was brought to the table along with a small grill which doubled as a heater. The cottage cheese pieces were incredibly soft and fresh, the veggies in between were satisfactory as well. The portions were pretty good and were accompanied by a mint sauce along with some vinegar soaked veggie pieces. Nice!

The restaurant was getting packed in the meantime so we decided to order the main courses by now. After a long ‘should i take this or that one… oh wait, this sounds great’, we selected the ‘Baked cheesy Seafood Macaroni’ and ‘Steak Mushroom Fries’. Believe me, you will want to go back and try other main courses because they have a some great options there in vegetarian as well as non-vegetarian food.

mind blowing

I called on the landline to book a table last friday, the hostess seemed very confused at first but she gave it to a lovely lady who spoke very politely and took our reservation. When we reached, it was a pleasant surprise, we could feel the warmness in the air around this place. It was simply beautiful. We ordered for our dinner and drinks... i personally want to thank the bartender the cocktails you made were simply tasty. I ordered for sum chilli penne pasta (cant remember name of the chilli) which was heaven in my mouth.
People seriously need to come and chk this place out as its one of a kind and worth the price.

a WoW!!!! experience

The first thing that strikes your mind when you visit 'The Island' is the serene calmness, fresh outlook, mind soothing natural sounds of water falling and chillout music at the background. The decor is classy.
There was good variety in food and alcohol. Jager bomb, a must try and the starters yummm. The stewards were very kind and helpful, very impressive service. I am waiting to try out the Sunday Brunch this week, heard great reviews from my pals. All in all is one of its kind in the city and a must visit place. Kudos for setting up such a great place.

Excellent Sunday Brunch

I always love to explore new Restaurants, specially for Sunday Brunch. Was there at The Island last Sunday with family and friends. We had a great time. The menu was just perfect with lots of drinks n food flowing in. I feel the pricing was just great.
We could have a better time because they have a separate kids area with kids activities. Kids were busy there and we had much more space.
Would definitely like to recommend the brunch. Need to try out the evenings also.
The ambience is just Wow!!!

Saturday night special

Having passed the place a couple of times on 80ft road, we finally decided to give it a try on a Saturday night. The place was choc-a-bloc but we still managed to get a table pretty soon.There were 3 of us. Drinks and food came quick and food was good. Except for a little cutlery kerfuffle and someone else's order landing on ours, service was fine for a packed restaurant. Our order was changed real quick too. The manager was extremely courteous and did seem in control of the crowd. The ambience has a holiday resort(Goa)feel to it which we found nice. We ordered only for starters (the island sampler) and a chicken pasta. Both were good. Next to try their Sunday Brunch, where we can check the food out. So far so good. Overall, enjoyable experience.

Fantastic evening!!

Was there last weekend. The place is just awesome. Overall, all of our gang had good time and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in laid back relaxed time surrounded by amazing ambiance. Our order did come after 10 odd minutes but we were there to chill out so no issues there. The service guys kept us busy with beer and starters. We were delighted with variety of options in drinks. Had a good time by the waterfall !!

Not too Happy

The place is nice to hand out with frens... Kudos to the architect... separated hut kindda tree house sorta thing.. nice to chill with frens so you can enjoy the music in Background but still have a conversation..
Menu looks pretty good in print but not so much on taste buds... we tried several appetizers but were disappointed... some of the chicken tasted stale.. so we decided to grab some dinner before Bangalore shuts down.. if u jus want drinks then can try this...

Recommended place to visit

I visited The Island last evening and was super delighted to see the svelte ambiance and chic outlook. The place looks quite refreshing with water all around and the music is not too loud allowing a pleasant place to have a thoughtful conversation and unwind after a day's work. The seating is spaced out and doesn't allow the place to get overly crowded. I recommend it for following events:
1. Unwind post office day
2. To celebrate a special someone
3. Hangout for friends
4. Client night-out
5. Relaxed weekend sip-up.

The attic style seating above the bar-counter is a stunner. Good job team!
