‘Holy Flames’ is one place that is slowly becoming another regular barbecue kind of hang out for folks working in the IT companies in and around the Marathahalli region in Bangalore. This restaurant is part of the Cartier hotel and is centrally located.
Coming to the Food, started off with Dahi Papdi chat which was very refreshing and good in taste.The rest of the starters both on the grill and directly on the plate started flowing in.Majority of it seemed to be served directly on the plate rather than on the grill and tasted better too.Gobi Manchuri was nice, crisp and fried to perfection with no sign’s of oil on the plate.On the grill were variety of fish, prawn and chicken starters on the non-veg and paneer, pineapple,potatoes on the veg side of it. All of it was good regular stuff, sticking to the basics and not trying something different.The veg kebabs were a little bland for me, lacked taste and not much stuffing inside.
On the main course , ood variety on the vegetarian side, limited on the non-veg. Chicken Biriyani, fish and Chicken curry made up the non-veg section. Biriyani had a nice aroma and the meat gravies were OK. On the veg-side, thumbs up for dahi vada,paneer gravy and rasam. For desserts, they had a lot of varieties on the ice-cream. Opted for the tutty fruity flavour with some additional cherries and strawberry sauce which definitely satisfied the sweet tooth !Mango jelly and the fruit salad were not up to the mark.Jelly had no taste at all. Gulab jamun : all boxes ticked and perfect. Assortment of fruits was also fresh.
Ambiance is good wit large space ,nice decor and comfortable couches. The major problem was A/C not working and the insect killer machines kept on making a very irritating noise. Service needs improvement especially at the Live counters.
