The Ritz-Cartlon is one of Bengaluru’s loveliest and most sophisticated hotels so its coffee shop (all-day dining, or whatever they call it) is suitably elegant and discreet. There is an À la carte menu but they work on the assumption that everyone will want to try the buffet. This has its strengths and its weaknesses. The Oriental food is not great (odd for a hotel that runs such a good Chinese restaurant) but the sushi counter is terrific and there are great Indian and Western options, so you don’t have to try their take on Thai or Malaysian food.
I had been to this place couple of times and noticing that service is becoming poorer. Before writing here , just browsed through reviews and felt I am not alone to feel that. I feel sorry for situation, where they have good location and infrastructure but can not attract as many customers as it should have. Anyway, I decided to go there 2nd times last Sunday with family, just due to it's location and ambiance. Front staff were OK to greet and help on queries I had with my dine out offers and billing. Once we settled down on suggested place, we felt unattended, it was hard to get anyone's attention and unusual to five star service practice, I found no one assigned to service us and we need to waive hands from asking for water refilling to clearing off used plates. Apart from service , food is good but again get diminished due to serving cold food and delayed service. They served soup and mock tails on table and which was good. Starters, we chose Sheek kabak and Chicken tikka, both tasted good, only Chicken Tikka took time to be served , probably it was taken as special order, as we did not choose to have fish and Paneer items. Spread is not very long but OK with sufficient for both Veg and non Veg, Their chaat section looked good but again issue with not serving hot, I ordered Paav bhaji which could have been better if served hot. Butter chicken with Roti and Biryani is good in taste. Desserts section have enough, including variety of Indian sweets, but hey tasted sweeter , and expect them to reduce sugar in Indian sweet. Overall , food is good with improved service they can be much better, service not only in promptness but when they serve it should be served hot. I thank Chef , who was generous enough to come and seek feedback and tried his best to help us , but seems they really need some one to motivate all staff, as they don't seem to be under staff , just not motivated and active.
The Market offers both buffet breakfast and dinner options. We had the opportunity to try both and were not disappointed. They have a large selection including both local/Indian as well as Asian, western, etc. The staff are helpful and the space is comfortable.
The only meal you will need in a day. Best selection of fruits pastries and main course. Filter coffee is a must. They serve in old styler brass tumblers.
I booked the reservation on Eazydiner for a brunch and got the confirmation message with all the details. On the way to the restaurant, we were confirming the reservation with the hotel reservation to make sure that everything is fine. The reservation staff informed that there is no reservation on our name and said that she will check with Eazydiner and call back in 5 minutes. We contacted Eazydiner customer care, who confirmed the reservation. Then we informed about the discussion with Reservation counter in Ritz Carlton. Eazydiner executive also confirmed to revert back in 5 minutes. We had to wait for 45 and then contacted both The Market and Eazydiner. It is learnt that Ritz Carlton has sent a mail to Eazydiner not to accept any reservations for the day, but Eazydiner still sold the reservations. The reservation executive at the Market told that it is the mistake of Eazydiner and asked us to deal with Eazydiner. The reservation executive further said that she can take a booking as a walkin guest and without considering the reservation of Eazydiner. The attitude of the reservation executive at The Market is not professional and is not in line with 5 star category of the hotel. Hence, we decided to walk-out and go to another restaurant.
It the main restaurant at the Ritz Carlton hotel. Ambience is nice … Breakfast was good, they had variety of fresh juices , pastries, wester and eastern and middle eastern dishes. Once I ordered an omelet and a dosa and it was ok though not exactly what I ordered , another day the chef was different and cooked what I requested 100%, then presented it in this elegant way with arugula and fresh cherry tomato that made the dish like an image from a catalogue. One night I tried the market dinner. It was nice, not huge in terms of varieties but very nice nevertheless with delicious items to pick from. They baked me this cute small margherita pizza that was superb with crusty dough. I opted for roasted turkey roll for my main course which they cook upon request, and by far it was the BEST thing I tasted in the hotel during my entire stay, it was superb, really a fine dine material, well done to the chef who created and seasoned the dish. The staff at the restaurants were really good ( most not all ), the restaurant managers/supervisors were always present and in action serving guests and making sure each has a good time enjoying their food and the ambience. Especially the ever friendly Mr.Saurabh Aryan who were very pleasant to talk to. Along with Hemanta Paul who made sure my breakfast was a sweet experience. I even once glimpsed the hotel's General Manager Mr. Amitabh Rai watching how everything is working out during the breakfast time. Overall, I had an excellent experience and it was worth every penny.
Bengaluru is a city brimming with culture and lively hopping nightlife, elevated by the presence of many fabulous restaurants and pubs. And what better and assured way of experiencing food than in a luxurious setting of a lovely five star hotel, which the city is so full of. One of the loveliest and most beautiful hotels in Bengaluru is The Ritz-Carlton Hotel, located on Residency Road. Housed under this delightful façade is the hotel’s all-day dining venture ‘The Market’, a subtle elegant place for you to grab a leisurely brunch with your girlfriends or have a quiet early morning meeting with your business associate. The restaurant will provide the right kind of backdrop. As the place is functional 24X7 you can stop by for a bite anytime of the day or night and take advantage of their late night buffets.
The Market is an expensive place to dine but all that seems worthy when you get to browse through their varied and eclectic menu, which showcases a plethora of cuisines from North Indian to European to South Indian to Thai. Their menu caters well to the global tastes of its diverse clientele and begin wooing you through their appetizers. Try, sambal prawn, chicken tikka, kari patte ki machhi, spring roll, chicken satay, pudine ki seekh, chicken with dry red chili & garlic, rajma galouti and vegetable dumpling with fresh chili coriander sauce. To tackle the main course opt for some flatbreads or noodles. Tofu penang curry, Punjabi lamb masala, tenderloin black bean sauce, khumb hara pyaz, chicken krapau, fish curry, Thai green curry, stir fried shredded chicken with mushroom & oyster sauce and paneer makhni.
Skip the curries if you want to and focus on pizzas, pastas, sandwiches, burgers, grills and steaks. Tickle your sweet tooth with cranberry pecan pie, gajjar halwa, cherry chocolate marquise, salted caramel chocolate fudge tart and gianduja pot de crème. Interiors wise, The Market is stylishly designed with separate good-looking dining rooms done in different styles. While one is flooded with sunlight and furnished with elegant royal blue chairs, the other one is more dark and masculine looking. Colour schemes in both the spaces are entirely different, while one is delicate and classy, the other is more intense. One thing common in all the spaces is sophistication, style and opulence. Dining at The Market seems worth it even if you have to pay a hefty price.
