Intense inspiration from Oriental culture and heritage is the lifeline of Shiro, a posh, fine dining restaurant in UB City, Bangalore. The huge Buddha face with a tranquil gaze, the perfect larger than life Tari Jaipong dancers of Heaven calmly pouring water, the many smaller sculptures of Buddha and water droplet shaped items suspended from the ceiling that add the effect of rain… It is a truly amazing setting indoors while the outdoor setting offers to view the Green City’s spaces, the wonderful breeze and a completely delighting experience.
The menu at Shiro keeps changing every week but it always comes out even better than before! Sunday Brunch is one of the main attractions for the ardent Japanese and Asian cuisine lovers. There are Japanese, Korean and Thai cuisines to be served in a great buffet spread of sushi, maki rolls, dimsums, soups and desserts. A live counter will make the chosen sushi right in front of you! The mains are not showcased in buffet bowls but brought to the table, fresh and warm. They have 3 vegetarian and 3 non-vegetarian options and have sub-categories with a minimum of four choices in each and include Chicken, Prawns, Beef, Fish and vegetables. The shrimp dimsums and mushroom dimsums are among the hot picks here. Certain types of seafood cakes (made of shrimps or fish), seafood or chicken in Chinese sauces are also there among the options for appetizers. Tiramisu and Hot Choco-lava Cake with Vanilla Ice-cream are the primes of the dessert table! Shots of vodka with fruits like kiwi, lemon or orange, some Indian sparkling wine (Sula Seco), Martinis, Daiquiri, Mimosa (mostly IMFL choices) are complimentary to the buffet.
The bartender, Joseph, is really deft at mixing the right ingredients and the right portions with the right drinks to give you a mind-blowing concoction in the glass. The service is excellent. The Shiro staff is very well-trained. Hygiene is highly maintained. The DJ is good and spreads contemporary beats in the air while you eat.
The Sunday Brunch is rather sensational and reservation is a must. Call 076767 76767 and book your table beforehand. The extended time from 1230-430p.m. is quite good and you can eat at a lazy pace, enjoying the flavourful food by the morsels along with the charm of Bangalore’s weather!!
