Teppan Japanese Grill & Sushi Bar, Ulsoor

I was craving for some sushi this weekend and Teppan seemed like a great choice. Teppan literally translates to “iron plate”, that is used for stir frying in Japanese cuisine. The eatery is located on the 3rd floor of the same building that houses two more popular restaurants- Benjarong and Ente Keralam.

The restaurant has an understated elegance and calm about it. The decor consists of simple but classy wooden furniture, lovely paintings and some pretty geisha dolls.

Wok to Asia, Marathahalli

The restaurant has valet parking, so you won’t have any parking woes 🙂 Interiors are neat & bright with colourful origami birds dangling from the ceiling. It serves both buffet and à la carte, and has a beautiful bar counter too.

Aroi, Sarjapur Road

The place looks simple yet beautiful and overlooks Kaikondrahalli lake near Sarjapur Road. They have plenty of seating and we decided to take a table outside that had a nice view of the lake.

Their decor is very simple. I was excited to see that they had traditional Seiza style seating. There’s an array of Japanese magazines kept at the entrance and you are required to remove your footwear before entering the dining area.
