Moussaka, Artisan Coffee, And Greenery: All At This Vegetarian Bistro

Green Theory

Ashok Nagar, Bangalore

What Makes It Awesome

Green Theory has been delighting vegetarian diners since it first started serving. Now that it's renovated, enjoy a casual coffee, or a fine dine course meal in the calm, airy, green space. 

We’re spoiled for choice when it comes to all vegetarian multi-cuisine (Indian, or otherwise) eateries, but a few years ago, all we had were Darshinis, and Green Theory, and the latter is still going pretty strong.  Located off Residency Road, under the shade of the many trees, Bangaloreans who wanted to enjoy the good food life (while vegetarian) have had many a meal there.

Renovated with all-white decor, cobblestoned pathways, and flowering creepers in addition to the canopy, the space will help you wind down, whether you dine outdoors or in. While they have Indian (and Jain-friendly, if requested) food, their Continental, East-Asian, and the occasional Middle-Eastern and Mexican options are worth a try. We loved their refreshing Raw Papaya Salad (and quite enjoyed the stir-fried broccoli and peanut pesto one - just be warned it’s warm). To share, we recommend the mezze platter; the pita is made fresh in house. For something hearty, try the mushroom pasta (white) for its super rich, creamy sauce, and on-point mushroom flavour. The Moussaka is interesting, because while it's not authentic (“less egg plant-ey”, in the words of the person who ordered it), still had us going for more. 

For dessert we recommend the cheesecake and brownies if they’re available at the time, as they only make fresh ones the next day! If you don’t have a sweet tooth, check out some of their tea blends, and cool coffee options from the coffee bar. Have a pet? They have a curated menu for your furbabies as well!

Pro-Tip

Their chef’s table course meals are a great option to sample their food in a fine dine setting, meet new people and enjoy a community dining experience. These would need to be booked in advance, so stay tuned to their social media for updates. 

COVID-19 Tip: Green Theory is open for delivery, available on Swiggy, Zomato and Dunzo. So, get ordering without further ado! They have recently opened for dine-in too, so you can drop in anytime between 10 am to 9 pm. Sanitise your hands at the entrance, allow for a temperature, wear your mask and maintain social distance.
