A classy Indian restaurant featuring both North and South Indian delicacies, Ebony is located on the 13th floor of Barton Center in Central Bangalore. Ebony has both indoor and outdoor seating and a range of cocktails and spirits to partake of with your meal. Ebony is known for having some lesser-known dishes and eclectic mix of Indian regional cuisines on the menu, making for an interesting dining experience. Ask to be seated outdoors so you can enjoy the view of Bangalore city as you eat. This is one place where you would not want to miss the soup course – try the 'Tomato and Drumstick Rasam', 'Ambur Paya Shorba' or the 'Yakhni Shorba'. Vegetarian diners will want to try the 'Khumb Tikka Rasmonak' – a combination of paneer and mushroom in a delectable marinade and the 'Crunchy Masala Lotus Root', tossed in gunpowder, to start off their meal, while non-vegetarians can choose between the 'Chilgoza Malai Kebab' (a Northwest Frontier style prep), 'Andhra Chilli Chicken Tikka' (a fancified version of the eternally popular Chilli Chicken), 'Nagore Chukka Prawns', 'Shikhampuri' (a Hyderabadi Nizam mutton kebab), or the 'Arcot Mutton Chops'. Some unique, regional, not easy to find mains include the 'Sagoti Style Kombdi with Vada' and the 'Gulab Jamun Handiwali'.
Good view of Bangalore skyline, especially in the evening. Average food. Little space crunch. Tables are small for family of four.
Located on MG road, opposite the metro station on the 13th floor of Barton center, Ebony is one restaurant that I have most frequently visited. It is one of the three restaurants (other two being 'On the Edge' and '13th floor lounge') in thirteenth floor and is specialized in serving north Indian food. While the food is definitely good, what stands out is the beautiful view of the city from here. Incidentally, on one instance, we watched the entire light show on the Vidhana Souda from this place. Although there is indoor seating, you would hardly find anyone there, and if you do, they are only waiting to move outdoor. Often, the evenings are pretty cool but that doesn't take away anything from the afternoons. Pricing is slightly high but considering the quality of food as well as the overall experience, it could be justified.
Ebony has an excellent view of the city. I have been here twice both for business and the food has been good too. A great place for couples in the evenings.
Been here after planning and dropping on many occasions. Food is good and on the softer tasting side. Will appease all taste palettes. Spread is good too and the price in a weekday makes it all the more VFM. Evenings are likely to be the best time to soak in the view of the city. Gotta go again!
We were there for an early lunch today. We were there by 12 noon as we didn't make any table reservation. We enquired about the buffet and also a la carte services. The staff in the front desk directed us to the other restaurant in the same floor for a la carte. So we went there to check the menu. As it was Thai and Chinese cuisine, we came back to Ebony. A few people were already waiting for the restaurant to open. At 12.30, the front desk staff showed them to their tables. We tried to enquire about our booking, he was very busy on the phone. So we were waiting for a while. Then he had some quarrel with a house keeping staff - shouting at him for some reason. Then he took us to show our table. He checked both terraces and seated us. We enquired about Indian a la carte, just in case if it is available on request. He started yelling like, 'I told you what we have. I directed you to that other restaurant. You by yourself came back here... etc.' We didn't know what was that all about. If you can't serve, you can let us know politely - instead of making us feel that it was our fault to go to your restaurant. We are a regular guest in the hotel in the same building. We have always liked the food you serve in room. And we have always found the staff who serve at room courteous. So the act of the front desk guy was shocking today. It spoiled our mood for the good food even before we sit on our table. We definitely won't want to come if we happen to see him on the front desk again. It's not the approach one would expect with such a high quality restaurant.
Sometimes the right kind of ambience can take your simple dining to a whole new level. It can add charisma and mood to any evening and leave you with hundreds of memories. Bengaluru has ample of that. The city surprises you like no other, leaving you fluttered with charm and unexpected delights. Dining out in Bengaluru has its advantages. For one thing, the city has an incredible weather that remains pleasant all year round, another, the stunning green pockets housing numerous restaurants taking advantage of its beauty. To get an eyeful view of this glorious city get a table at ‘Ebony’ at Barton Center on Mahatma Gandhi Road. The restaurant remains busy throughout the week but to get a table on weekends is next to impossible. Call ahead. Ebony won’t disappoint you.
This lovely family-style fine dining restaurant excels in keeping the foodies happy. They don’t just concentrate on one particular cuisine but tackles various fares under one roof. Besides good old South Indian and North Indian fare, they also serve Asian and Thai food. Prepare to foray into their multi-cuisine menu through a smashing bar menu, which could be paired off with few appetizers like, khandahari paya shorba, mushroom por-pia rolls, spicy bourbon wings, Thai crispy beef, vegetable shikampuri kebab, arcot mutton chops, machchi rubaiyath, zucchini feta balls, dakhni Bhatti ka murgh, gunpowder eggs and chilgoza malai kebab. Tackle the qormas and the salans with some flaky breads. Mop up curries like, subz miloni rasedaar, ande ka salan, murgh alishaan, ghar ka gosht, Bengali creamy prawn curry and dhansak. Or diversify with, Burmese khaoswe, crispy fish fillet and stir fried vegetables with braised peanut sauce.
For grand finale let Ebony weave its delectable magic through the marvellous desserts. Baked anjeer halwa, double roti ka meeta, Ebony and Ivory, qubani ka trifle, the java jalopy sundae, the very British sticky toffee pudding and chocolate menage a trois. Due to its location in a high rise building, Ebony looks upon a gorgeous view of Bengaluru from its outdoor dining space. Although the restaurant comes with an indoor dining area, it’s their outdoor dining section that steals the show. The décor is simple, working with natural wooden tones. It’s the breath-taking view from every window and the balcony that tops the evening perfectly. A little on the pricier side, Ebony is fail-safe place to go if you’re into some mood dining.
