People say that “Bengaluru” don’t know about nightlife but now time has changed and we are almost equivalent to other cities like Delhi and Mumbai. Yes, Rasta café is one best example for night life and late night place to spend time with loved ones and friends. This is located in Mysore Road and almost near to Ramanagaram (Town).
I am sure that college students and people who works in night shifts like to go for long rides during the nights and love to eat food during midnight’s. This is the place for people who love night life, being a night life lover. I visited this place so many times post dinner during weekends with batch friends during my bachelorhood.
This is quite a big place and ample place for parking too. This place will be crowded especially during the weekends with huge crowd.
People especially use to visit here for Hookah throughout the night and some light Italian dishes (This is during year 2007 to 2012). Government passed an order to ban serving Hookahs recently that’s how Rasta Café stopped serving Hookah’s but they started a full fledged Italian Dishes, Coffee’s and some smoothies too.
During my recent visit we were a batch of 10 to 12 people and started around 11pm, reached by 11.45pm. Oh my god it was heavily crowded and they said to get a table we need to wait for 1 hour. This is definitely understandable because of the crowd. Finally we got our table and I did not find any difference in respect to the ambiance compare to past and now. They have open and closed area for dinning but we choose open area to enjoy the breeze. We ordered some of the dishes like Thin Crust Pizzas, Pasta’s, Bruschetta’s, Cold Coffee’s and Smoothies. I feel pizza’s we had wasn’t that great but it was ok. I feel Bruschetta’s were really good with toppings of onion, tomato and seasoning. Cold coffees were normal just like the ones we get at Café Coffee Day. Going here once with family is ok but not advisable because of the local crowd who creates lot of nuisance.
I recommend this place to go with friends during the weekends to enjoy the long ride and some Italian food!!
