User Reviews for Sattvam
We enjoyed a multi-dish extravaganza in Sattvam which has been making saffron-suffused basil-sprinkled waves ever since it opened in Bangalore recently. The restaurant ,which has both buffet (approx Rs.500 per person) and a la carte sections, has carved a niche by its multi-layered rendition of modern vegetarian cuisine –one with a widened repertoire and flexible technique, but with the essence and ingredients remaining traditional. Moreover, if you’re a scripture-abiding Jain or particularly strict Brahmin who abjures onion and garlic, here’s a restaurant which will not deprive your palate.
And the Match kicks off with a Sixer! ===Kesar Tulsi Ki Shikanji=== also christened as Aromatic Saffron and Basil Flavoured Lemonade had wonderful perfume and exquisite taste –one of the best glasses of juice I’ve had ever. First whiff gives that bright fragrance of a cool first-class badam milk, but you end up tasting a Lemon Sherbet of marvellous body, whose notes of complex delight inveigle you with each sip.
Some of Sattvam's creations might not hit the spot, but the innovative touch is still evident. Broccoli and Apple Shorba was a light soup that offered its credentials in well-connected layers – the Broccoli gave it flavor and body, slivers of almond gave it gentle bite while fruity whispers of apple topped it off. Papads of rice were then presented- a crunchy snack which you may enhance with chaat-accented flavours of the accoutrements – sweet tamarind and spicy creamy mint ; tender batons of carrot and cucumber were also offered.
Ambience – First-class Pass! Tones of white, beige and dark wood give a cool elegance to the restaurant interior which is given an additional lift when sunlight streams in through the intelligently designed windows, while discreet touches of saffron mirror the taste of this key ingredient of Sattvam’s kitchen. Motifs are discreetly inscribed –like the tapering leaf gestalt of the Tulsi (Indian Basil) – which adorns both the white ceramic plates and wooden board that acts as your placemat.
Service is good and is capable of exercising commendable vigilance and promptness.
Crunchy Paneer roll was stuffed with Green Peas and served with a Russian salad-type Pomegranate in Cream – this was a novel composite success, the robust savouriness and layered texture of the former is refreshingly off-set by the sauce. In Paneer Anardana the cottage cheese was a soft delight, ensconced in a creamy light marinade.
Potato & Starfruit (Kamarakh/Karmbal) – I took one baby potato, and tasted it whole, along with the seasoning. It was the single best savoury offering of the whole afternoon. The potato was cooked perfectly –just a bit of “give” nudging the softness while the sparingly deployed gravy was a light delight – using cashew cream and yellow pepper. I’m picky with Dal Makhni, even the top-rated ones, but I liked the way this rendition blended its creamy heft with well-controlled tang. Though the one-of-a –kind Aloe Vera gravy needs a tweak to make it tastier, it is an audaciously commendable idea.
Cheese Jalapeno Naan here is an interesting hybrid bread with which to sample your gravies. We specifically requested Sattvam’s famous Guava-Pomegranate gravy – it had restrained accents of both these fruits – sweetly fleshy seed of pomegranate and the very lightly acidic, integumental fruity notes of guava .
Ghewar and Jalebi (both are widely praised sweets here) were unavailable that afternoon, but we were impressed by chocolate mousse which was silken with rich dark chocolate. Overall, yes there were a few mis-steps but more often than not, Sattvam proves to be a restaurant that offers an attractive and imaginative vegetarian option to diners who are tired of the same ol’ food.
My experience her was good went during the Dussera time the thing I like the most is that the main course was not neglected they were all flavour-sum. Usually restaurants serving only veg frizzle out when it come to the actual main course but here it was taken care of especially when there no garlic and onion it is not that easy to achieve. There were not only the basic dal and the panner but also many more dishes. The soup and the salads were really nice and so were the Indian desserts like the halwa and the rasmalai. The only draw back I would say would be the mouses and the cakes all were dominated by whipped cream. I think the management should consider sticking with the theme and serve India delicacy.
A must visit but a lot of scope for improvement.
One of the worst hotels ever! It's like a big Jain food mess.
1. Ambience - Crappy. Very noisy. It's a like a huge village fair. The waiters are also loud and keep dropping cutlery.
2. Food - Very ordinary. They call it "HEALTHY FOOD" but there is so much sourness and saltiness in the soup itself! All other main course items are rich in fat. Except a couple salads, everything is unhealthy. Taste is also very very mediocre.
3. Service - Functional.
4. Value for money - None whatsoever. For all the above factors, it's extremely overpriced.
I could see a lot of people compulsively eating and enjoying, but this certainly was a huge disappointment for me. I even question the Times Food awards that they have won, that too under the "Healthy Food" category!!!! I'm certainly not going back.
Just happened to drop in at this restaurant...in the midst of Puja celebrations...they have a special dinner buffet promotion till end of Puja hols. To be precise:
What wowed us: lovely ambiance, warmth of hospitality( right from valet parking boy, ushering at the lift on the ground floor, all the way till we are offered a table), exceptional service( that is so prompt, proactive and professional), and of course the delicious veggie lover's choice. Navadhanya soondal is an interesting twist...and Undhia is very tasty & so is the piping hot Rasam.
What would have been better: Almond Mousse(mostly whipped cream, though hints of almond), Baklava( not in its normal form and shape), Puliogare( could have been tangy) & even Dahia Bhujia( somehow did not quite a hit)
What needs definite improvement: maintenance of the washrooms; disappointed that even the water is not available.
Overall: good can be better
When you hear of a restaurant serving delicious vegetarian meals without the use of onion or garlic you are bound to be intrigued. When someone tells you that the restaurant is located in the upmarket Sadashivnagar area and serves ‘designer’ vegetarian fare – it piques your interest some more. And finally when you read that the restaurant not only serves vegetarian fare, but that all of it is Sattvic as well – the deal is sealed! The concept of Sattvic food is not new to me – all temples in India serve it as Prasad (food blessed by the Gods).
The restaurant is located on Sadashivnagar main road, in the same building that houses Godrej Natures Basket. The décor is elegant and fresh, keeping with their theme and their mascot – the Tulsi leaf. (The Tulsi plant is supposed to be very dear to the Lord Krishna). The glass façade of the restaurant lets in abundant light (joy to my camera) and overlooks the lovely old trees of the area.
The restaurant has a vast sattvic buffet, including eggless desserts that they churn out in house. The buffet is available throughout the week for lunch. I saw quite a crowd that came there to sample the wares. (The catchment area – Malleshwaram, has a high vegetarian/ Brahmin population). We however chose to move to the private dining area for a sampling of their signature dishes. (Ask the waiters or the owners for their a la carte menu).
Both times the experience was sublime. The starters arrived and I was pleasantly surprised to see the plating. Individual portions served with two dipping sauces and a lovely pouring jug of green chutney. Now I understood the contemporary vegetarian dining spiel. Their specialities include Paneer Anaedane ka Tikki, Babycorn and Lime Leaf Gilafi, Paneer Stuffed with Green peas and more. Main course definitley try the Chotte Samose ke Sabji! Mini samosas in a creamy besan and greens-gravy. I wanted to eat the whole bowl myself and was cursing the fact that my stomach was full! Loved Loved Loved.
They had an array of desserts but what caught our eye was the Malai Ghewars. Oh…my….God! When I go back to Sattvam (and I’ve already planned two outings with two different groups) – I will start with the ghewars and eat it till my heart says stop (with the amount of ghee in it – it could be cardiac arrest inducing :P). If you try anything there, try this – it’s one of the best ghewars I’ve had in a long time. (And I say this with confidence because I have had many Marwari neighbours who gave me ghewars from Rajasthan almost throughout the year for fifteen odd years!)
So plan an outing to Sadashivnagar – it’s not thaaat far! And go with an open mind and an empty stomach, because the food and experience will fill you up in many wonderful ways.
Cost: Buffets – Rs.395/- (Mon-Fri) and Rs.495/- (Sat and Sun). Special a la carte Menu – Starters Rs. 150/- onwards, Mains Rs. 300/- onwards
Parking: Valet Available
