Sunday is a Brunch Day and Brunch is always a good idea on this Funday. So that Sunday after snuggling much, we decided to eat our hearts out at Monsoon - The Park. They say that "The Sun after the rain is much beautiful than the Sun before the rain", that's how is the experience at Monsoon, The Park. The Sunday looked beautiful and amazing after a hearty brunch here. Monsoon is truly a drizzle of flavors being an ideal destination in Bangalore for a meal anytime around the clock
Monsoon is a 24/7 restaurant located near the lobby welcoming their patrons with a splash of flavors ranging from Pan Asian, Indian to International cuisine. The Park is just opposite to 1 MG Mall, so when you are done and exhausted with all your shopping, you can just drop in at Monsoon to relax your tired feet, become a couch potato and relish your food heartily. The buffet/brunch is priced very reasonably at Rs.499+taxes ( Mon-Sun Lunch ), Dinner (Rs.1700 - buy one, get one free ), Sunday Brunch ( Rs.1500 - without alcohol and Rs.2000 - with alcohol ). Being a 24/7 restaurant there is an ala-carte option too with some interesting delicacies in the menu.
The ambiance is minimalistic but nowhere less in giving you that perfect relaxation you need. Looks fresh and vibrant during the day and looks romantically lit during the dinner, They have outdoor seatings too which faces the pool and one is all set to take a chill pill.
I loved those golden butterflies in the backdrop which seems to spread a lot of happy vibes and a special charm to the place.
Food - The Drizzle Of Flavours :
Sundays are supposed to be spent at this kinda restaurant with a glass of beer and some good food with your loved ones by your side, Just imagine the flavors drizzling down your plate and fills up your taste buds and tummy with happiness, there is nothing else to complain in life, right?
The Sunday brunch had 14 varieties of Salads, soups, 5 starters served at the table, croissants, sliders, live chaat counters, main courses, and desserts. We grabbed a glass of Hoegaarden Beer and settled with some starters. The Achari Fish Tikka, Pattaya Chicken, and Gobi Talimbu were few of the outstanding starters. Achari Fish Tikka had the Basa well marinated with spicy Achar and went so well with the Beer. Pattaya Chicken had juicy chunks of chicken tossed with sauces and made it the Pattaya way.

The Salad Counter had 14 varieties and all of them were quite interesting, We loved the Fried Noodle Salad, Bitter gourd Salad, Paneer Tikka Salad, Potato and Tomato Salad. I have to mention the Poached Fish Salad which was a unique one, it had poached fish-basa dressed up with red cabbage, olives, and mayonnaise. If you would prefer more seasoning to it, then you can glam it up with more sauces and dressings available there. There is also a Make Your Own Salad Counter - this is exclusively for people who wanna go healthy, they can choose their own preferences of sauces, dressings and sprouts according to their calorie needs.
The main course was completely a yummy trail I should say. We started off with Rancho Chicken, a brilliant chicken preparation with chicken stock, red wine, glazed carrots and aromatized with a fresh splash of herbs like rosemary and thyme, literally an addictive dish, every bite of the chicken spread the aromatics perfectly and we kept eating it, then we realized we have to be good to the other dishes too 😃😃😃 .
Steamed Rice went well with the Dal Tadka, Vegetable Curry and Cabbage Poriyal. The Mangalore Fish Curry was little runny, felt a little more body to the gravy would have done wonders. Peas Pulao tasted right with subtle flavors and rich in ghee. Paired some Indian Breads with Mutton Rogan Josh, Palak Paneer and Baingan Ka Bharta, found it to be tantalizing. Overall the Main-Course was nothing short of heavenly.

It was time to dig into their irresistible desserts. I have heard a lot of good buzz about the desserts at The Park and yes they proved it right. It was quite a stunning range of eggless and guilt-free desserts. Totally fell in love with their Black-Currant Cheese Cake, Litchi Pannacotta, Lemon Tart, Mango Delight, Croissant Pudding.
Lemme end the review with the best, Yeah... those sinful and cute looking Angoori Ras-Malai with a cardamom-scented milk base deserves a big round of applause. This melt in the mouth Ras-Malai was definitely a happy climax to our absolutely spectacular Sunday Brunch.
My special mention and hearty thanks to Karthik whose service was excellent throughout the Brunch.
The Crumb Stash's Verdict :
