The erstwhile Park Plaza in Marathalli is now a Radisson Blu property. And it has gone through a complete overhaul in terms of décor, ambience, theme and setup. And we are loving it. I had visited last month for a fashion show event, and quite liked the new look. Recently, Tapash and I were invited for a tasting at Melange, their all-day dining restaurant, so we headed out there during the shutdown period around elections. Good decision, no traffic on the road, and we were there in practically no time!
Melange is a large spacious restaurant. There’s also an extended-out door space, that’s typically reserved for private parties and gatherings. We had attended a birthday bash here as well. Neat space, just the music can be heard in the restaurant as well during such events. The layout had changed considerably since my last visit though. The setup of food was altered to organize better. There were live counters from the kitchen, a large selection of salads and cold cuts. For appetizers and mains, there was choices from Indian and European cuisines. And dishes were well made, with attention to detail, even though this was a buffet spread.
The most impressive part of the buffet is the gorgeous selection of desserts. Plated neatly and put in an array of simple designs, these were a delight to look at, and delicious to eat! There were some Indian desserts as well, but mostly little pannacottas, gateaux, parfaits etc. This was probably the longest part of our meal, though the biryanis and curries kept us busy too! A great spread, well balanced, and tons of dishes! They do serve alcohol, but being the election time, no liquor was served.
The Last Word
The buffet here is priced at 1300 + taxes, and that’s pretty decent for the spread. Additionally, with Zomato Gold (use code DEBOLI for discount), you could get a Buy 1 Get 1 on buffet, which is awesome. It’s a good place for groups to come – so family or teams, because there’s abundance of space. The spread is nice and big, enough options for everyone. They also have a Sunday brunch. Go, check them out!
