and Spices A
Continental Cuisine in Indiranagar
listening to incessant ravings, I decided to hunt down Herbs and Spices - a small
restaurant tucked away in a quite residential corner of Indranagar a little off
CMH Road. The first time around youll find it difficult to spot the place
but once you have been there youll be hooked. This is a place for those
with a discerning taste in food.
the restaurant has been around for the last 6 years a lot of foodies are still
unaware of its existence. While their competitors are located at more conspicuous
locales, Herbs and Spices preferred the quieter neighborhood. Let people
find us is what Manjit, the chief chef, stated. This is exactly what I discovered
the first time I visited the place, the other patrons at the restaurant seemed
familiar with the food and with the owners.
their Spartan decor to their furniture everything at Herbs and Spices reads modest
and utilitarian, however their food is far from modest, for instance their grilled
Beef spirals, Walnut Meringue and a whole lot more reveals their intricate detailing
in dishing out indigenous continental food.
and Spices is jointly owned and managed by Manjit Singh (a soft spoken surd) and
Pankaj Ramesh who also happen to be the two head chefs of the restaurant. The
meals comprising of pastas, steaks, salads, quiches and pies are Manjits
speciality, Pankaj does the breads, croissants and exotic desserts like apple
tarts, chocolate roulades, pavlovas, and the very popular walnut meringue and
egg-less chocolate cakes.
restaurant has a black board for its menu. We have a new menu everyday,
so that our customers have something new to look forward to each time. Although
our salads and quiche are constants and few of the pastas and steaks keep appearing
on the menu time and again, our menu has evolved as we have grown quipped
they started out their only competition was Sunnys, now however there are
many more specializing in continental cuisine. Manjit doesnt seem perturbed
by the fact, he believes they are offering not just great food but also quality
time. You are unhurried and can take your time with your food and desserts, a
rare phenomenon in restaurants these days.
very unique thing I noticed about their desserts and breads section was that none
of it seemed to carry a label, Oh, we want to talk to our customers and
tell them a little something more than just the name smiled Manjit. I loved
the fact that they would truly customize your food, so if nothing on the menu
appeals to you dont worry they would always cook up something scrumptious
for you. What impressed me the most was Manjit himself, an interesting conversationalist
who could tell you lots about food and fine dining.

Thaliath writes - Hi,
I wish I could give
a higher rating than 'Excellent'. I simply adore this place with its serene, homely
atmosphere. What I love most about this place is Manjit himself (his warmth) and
the food that he makes. He surely knows the way to a woman's heart.
simply melts in your mouth.
This is the only place where after savouring a
soup I actually closed my eyes unconsiously for a full five minutes b'coz I found
it so delicious. After tasting food at so many restaurants, I realise the importance
of having a restaurant like Herbs & Spice. It is one of its kind and its chef/owner
(Manjit) one of his kind!
