Hotel Tom’s will not be found in any guide book of Bangalore or South India. It’s not fancy, not sexy, and certainly not convenient to the major attractions of the city. It is, however, a short walk from the Casa Cottage, our “home” while in this city. Casa’s staff referred us for dinner as we were too tired to walk back to MG road where far more selections can be found.
On arrival we noticed the dining room, accessible directly off the road, was empty. Even though it was a tad early for dinner at 7:30 PM, more diners would have been appropriate at this hour. Fearing it was a bad sign we reluctantly entered. Four staff members were present: One for the door, one to seat us, one to take our order and serve the food and the last for handling money.
Indian food dishes offered steered more toward North Indian style. Aloo Gobi in gravy with roti was chosen and delivered. With just the right amount of spice our dishes were scraped clean in no time.
It’s hard to say whether the fast and attentive service here was due to the lack of customers or par for the course. No other diners appeared between our entry and exit but as mentioned above, the location and timing may have been more of a factor than quality of food. For a fast, simple and cheap meal, stop in here.
Total cost Rs 129 ($2.87)
