Bengaluru, the city of flavors and the busy bustling IT hub is well known for its rich food culture and also for a lot of diversities in terms of cuisines. The city is spoilt for too many choices, and out of all, a buffet place always scores the best when it comes to the value of money. When there are large groups, of-course peoples opinions and tastes vary, so a buffet place is always better as there is something to please everyone, full of variety and with a taste of everything. One such great place to hit up with your family/friends is The Spice Bazaar. 

The Spice Bazaar is a hassle-free buffet place that can satisfy your never-ending appetite without creating a hole in your pocket. This new Indian buffet restaurant is situated in the heart of Lavelle Road on the terrace of Hotel Southern Star. Once you enter The Spice Bazaar, it's calm and peaceful leaving the chaos of the world outside. 

Yes, it's an inviting space to share a drink, soak up in some mouth-watering food, enjoy the bright sun smiling at you, feel the wind in your face and unwind with good company. The ambiance of the place is a reminiscence of a Haveli, where open-air tables are filled with good food and overlooks the green expanse.

Food - The Happy Mix of Traditional Favourites :

We were a bunch of friends and we all traveled from quite a long distance all the way to Lavelle Road, We all kickstarted the lunch by ordering some mocktails and cocktails. I had opted for the Cucumber Cooler which was a thirst quenching affair. 

The buffet has 4 Veg and 4 Non-Veg Starters along with Soups, Salads, Chaats, Main Courses and Desserts. The starters are served on the table and every starter is a hit here. Who doesn't love smokey, charred, juicy and tender tikkas? We loved the magic the chef had done to every starter served. Right from the creamy and tender Malai Paneer Tikkas to Andhra Chilli Chicken to succulent Chicken Tikkas spruced up with spices and garnished well were yummy and started ruling our senses. 

The Amritsari Fish also wowed the taste buds of the sea-food lovers. 

There was this Mutton Sheekh Kebab which was stuffed with green chilli, Don't scream now, trust me it was one amazing starter oozing out with flavors. Vegetarians rejoiced the Mushroom Ghee Roast and Tandoori Potatoes, which was crispy outside, soft and melting inside. 

Overall the starters were downright divine. The smokey, char-grilled aroma and delicious flavors of the tikkas and kebabs surely got us all hooked. 

 After the starters, went to the buffet counter and helped myself with a bowl of piping hot Tomato soup, sounds very simple right? but it was way too good that I had to go with a second serving too. 

In the main courses, I tried a couple of curries with Indian Bread and Steamed Rice. Kori Gassi, Dal Makhani, Dhingri Palak and the Sajan Chicken Curry were worth trying. The Mutton Briyani was yummy and the vegetarians had the Cashew Pulav. 

The desserts had a mix of Indian and continental and were a perfect end to the sumptuous feast. 

The Crumb Stash's Verdict and Ratings : 

Overall, The Spice Bazaar is one amazing place in the heart of the city where you can hang out with your loved ones, friends/family for a sumptuous feast. The buffet is very reasonably priced at Rs. 499 plus taxes (lunch) and Rs.599 plus taxes (dinner). You don't have to struggle to order dishes, just relax and the chef will create some magic to excite your palette. Go, there to discover the joy of yummilicious and lavish buffet, yet at a very reasonable price.
