Kobe Sizzlers has its branches in Garuda Mall & Koramangala in Bangalore. I have visited both the branches and the food is quite consistent.
We visited the koramangala branch in the evening around 9 p.m. and it was packed with families, couples, bachelors & some office-goers with their overseas partners.
On getting a table, we were informed by our server that they have something called ‘Sip N Sizzle’. There’s a new brand of wine getting launched soon – Big Banyan. To promote this brand, they are offering a glass of either red or white wine complimentary alongside certain sizzlers. We certainly didn’t mind this!
Having reached late & super ravenous by this time, we decided to skip the starters (which sounded interesting!) and head directly to the main course. I ordered the Fish Sizzler and my husband took a fancy to the T Bone Steak Sizzler. The wine was served promptly and tasted quite good. Not bad for a new brand!
The sizzlers arrived in around 15 minutes after the order, sizzling hot & looking very appetizing. We had to wait to be able to pick up the hot food which gave me ample time to shoot some pictures for this review.
The Fish Sizzler had around 3-4 medium size fish fillets, grilled perfectly. This was framed by steamed veggies (carrot sticks, peas, mushrooms, spinach, tomatoes, onions & lettuce) & mashed potatoes.
The taste was absolutely smashing. The garlic sauce on the fish was creamy and seasoned well. Everything was cooked perfectly and for the first time, I actually finished every single element on my sizzler.
Hubby had the T Bone Steak Sizzler which looked and tasted equally good. He had requested the beef to be cooked medium-well and it was! The veggies were the same as my sizzler, the only extra element was the garlic bread on his sizzler. The sauce on the beef was a tangy one, very similar to tomato but darker (probably had hint of mushrooms in it).
With the main course polished off, we were surprised to find ourselves with dessert cravings. Probably had more to do with the hard to miss paper mat on the table (on which the sizzlers were served) – it had all the desserts listed out! Smart move I must say!!! Since we could not reach a decision between the Lemon Cheesecake or Blueberry Cheesecake, we opted for the unique Tiramisu.
This dessert piece had a chocolate covered biscuit to the side. The Tiramisu was not off the mark but I would’ve preferred a softer, melt-in-the-mouth version. The sponge was not moist so it was like any other cake. I’d recommend skipping desserts here.
Overall, a very good experience. The service was prompt and though the bill was handed a bit late, the food was nothing to fault. The meal costed close to 1000 (Rs.) with all the taxes thrown in.
I would recommend booking here on weekends as it gets a sizable crowd. Unless you don’t mind waiting and watching the other diners take their own sweet time to finish, considering that the food is good 😉
