Finally the awaited 18th floor of the hotel has opened 3 gates – Saffron, Yataii and Caprese. If you haven’t guessed yet, they’re the Mediterranean, Indian and Japanese speciality restaurants, respectively.

We were invited to gorge at these at the launch and our fav part (even though the food spreads were to die for) HAD to be the sky-high dining experience amidst beautiful views and the Bengaluru weather. Each restaurant merges their indoor and outdoor seating really smartly.

Ssaffron

Ssaffron

Ssaffron probably has the biggest outdoor deck, and a lovely sophisticated indoor setting which was much larger than you would expect. The striking rich wood, grand ornate carvings and free-standing metallic sandstone sculptures, add to the grandeur of the Indian restaurant.

Led by the talented Chef Lakbhir Singh, the food combines age-old authenticity with a touch of modern flair, handcrafting food from such regions as Rajasthan, Punjab, Karnataka, Hyderabad and the coast of Goa and Kerala. From flying Roomalis to the artfully prepared Khargosh (rabbit), the food is authentic, traditional, yet with a contemporary touch.

Reach Ssaffron at ssaffron.slbl@shangri-la.com for lunch (from noon to 3 p.m.) or dinner (from 6:30 to 11:30 p.m.).

Yataii

Yataii

In addition to  serving traditional Japanese cuisine with authentic and imported ingredients, Yataii’s menu offers innovation as well.

We absolutely loved the whole Zen look and this place had the most electric vibe on launch day. The table setups are inspired by the sakura, Japan’s national flower.

The chefs, led by Head Chef Atsushi Yonaha, pride themselves on the freshness of the products. There’s more than one way to experience this place.. either with Sushi, Sashimi or Teppanyaki prepared fresh in front of guests at the live station.

To experience a delightfully authentic Japanese dinner (from 7 to 11:30 p.m.), guests can reach Yataii at yataii.slbl@shangri-la.com.

Caprese

Caprese

Last but definitely not the least, headed by Shangri-La Hotel’s own xecutive Chef Antonio Tardi, Caprese delivers Spanish Tapas, Middle Eastern Mezze Platters and Italian dishes. What’s unique is that the food is much more interactive than usual. There’s this emphasis on engagement, and it’s quite visible with the open Tapas counter, such as Parma Ham carved at the table or classic Italian Tiramisu prepared in front of guests.

This restaurant probably has our favourite terrace lounge. It’s a little more private and perfect for a romantic evening.

Guests can step in any day for lunch from noon to 3 p.m. or for dinner from 6:30 to 11:30 p.m. They may alsoreach the restaurant at caprese.slbl@shangri-la.com.
