Sanctum, a trendy night club in the Residency Road, Bangalore is offering a gastronomic experience with its very interesting Buffet.
I was invited for tasting the dinner buffet menu @Sanctum. It was a lovely experience with some very interesting fellow food and lifestyle bloggers and celebrity bloggers as well.
The cuisine catered was mainly Indian with some Chinese as well as Mediterranean touch. The Bar set up is really catchy. They go with the tagline of “Raise the Bar”. They have their own signature cocktails and mocktails as well as the tried and tested usual ones. They have a nice collection of wines as well.
The place is definitely hip and trendy with a dance floor where one can shake a leg or two with some beautiful English and Bollywood numbers played by the Djs. Definitely a great place to come with group of friends for good food and to groove, specially if you are gang of girls, then Wednesday is for sure your day as it is the Ladies Night @Sanctum.
Coming to the food laid out in the buffet, they had a cute spread of soups, salads, veg and non veg starters, bread basket, veg and non veg main course, live pasta counter, desserts and a choice of Mocktail/Beer/Glass of wine.
Here are some mocktails and wines we tried.
Soups on display were chicken hot and sour soup and veg sahi shorba
The starters served here were really good. In veg they had Veg Stuffed Mushroom, Paneer Tikkis with mint and jagary sauce, Cheese Croquettes, and in non veg variety they served Chicken tikka, Thai Basil chicken. Frankly, I loved all the starters. they were perfectly cooked, well seasoned and very tasty. Stuffed mushroom, cheese croquettes and thai basil chicken were my favorite from the lot.

They also served few salad like fruit salad, normal green salad, roasted veg salad, meat salad. being a die hard non vegetarian myself i loved the grilled meat salad the most.

The mains were good but nothing out of the box. They served the chicken biryani with veg raita.
Veg fried rice with Veg Manchurian. The veg manchurian was little sweet for my taste.
They had bread basket with tandoori rotis and butter naan which was accompanied with Dal Makhni, Murgh Lababdaar, Sabzi Miloni, Mutton Roghan Josh, Palak Paneer. I really liked the dal as well as the mutton. Mutton was super succulent and just melting in my mouth, definitely a thumbs up.
Mutton Roghan Josh:
They also had Curd rice which helps in normalizing your palate.
The dessert served were Sabudana Kheer and Layered chocolate mousse which had both white and dark chocolate.
Layered Chocolate Mousse´: Man!! this was really yumm…
After having our fill, we jumped on to the dance floor to jazz up the evening a bit more. Over all it was a fun experience.
My personal rating for the place will be:
Over all: 4/5
