Relish the Authentic Food at Andhra Food Festival – Pinkxx, Royal Orchid Central, Bangalore.

April 12, 2017

Royal Orchid Central is one of the finest hotels located in CBD, Bangalore. The Pinkxx is a buffet restaurant housed in Royal Orchid Central. The restaurant focuses on buffet. However, they had come up with a concept of Thali during lunch hours as part of “Andhra Food Festival” started from 7th April till 23rd April 2017.Chef. Pathak is the man behind this festival with his excellent exposure & experience. Well, Chef. Pathak is from Orissa. However, he worked at various restaurants in Andhra Pradesh and have understood the specialty of Andhra cooking. He also have met various cooks & home chefs for getting authentic food. Also, he visited many restaurants to understand the food culture in Andhra Pradesh.

So, Royal Orchid Central decided to introduce this festival without much promotion.

I was here yesterday along with my friend for lunch. As I said, its Vegetarian Thali & non-veg starters and gravies can be ordered separately from the festival menu. The vegetarian Thali comprises of Rice, Chitrannam, Pappu (Dal), Sambar, Rasam, Thalimpu (Poriyal), Vepudu, Avakaya, Powder, Curd Chilli, Papad, Poori, Gutti Vankaya and Payasam. The Thali was simply awesome & taste is certainly authentic. Believe me, every dish was tasty & cooked brilliant. Usually, in hotels food will be slightly less spicy. But the food over here is exceptionally good with right Spice levels. Also, they change the menu on daily basis. 

The is restaurant decorated well with garlands & mango leaves toran to give a festival feel.


The place was completely packed with in-house & outside guests. Also there were few guests walking in around 3pm.

The Thali priced at 250 INR, which is certainly a steal since it is unlimited. I am sure, this kind of food will be available at many standalone restaurants. But, Royal Orchid Central can serve your purpose as it is one of the Bangalore’s best 4 star hotel.

The service was good & folks were well trained with respect to food & hospitality. My special thanks to Kiran!

About Royal Orchid Central:

Located at the end of Cubbon Road and at the junction of MG Road, with stunning views of Ulsoor Lake, the hotel gives you easy access to the heart of the city, yet with the ability to step away from it with the ambience of the place.

The hotel has 130 rooms across 3 categories – all with every amenity to make your stay comfortable – great rain showers, complimentary tea & coffee in the rooms and free wifi, are some of the standard features at the hotel. The hotel houses Pinxx, its 3 meal restaurant, where I had this Thali and multiple venues for dining & entertaining, starting from a starry terrace overlooking the lake, to an intimate alcove by a waterfall. Guests staying at the hotel can benefit from the features around the vicinity such as major banks, pubs, multiplexes, metro and Brigade Road & Commercial Street which are haven for shopaholics.

Overall it was a great experience! I would like to thank Chef. Akhilesh Pathak & Raj Subba for having us!
