A perfect rooftop setting, with the whole city as your backdrop, Kaze is Residency Road’s favourite resto bar with fun cocktails, and Japanese sake. Plus, there’s oysters, sushi and New Zealand lamb chops involved too. Located on the 21st floor of a swanky building right opposite Bangalore Club (the Lavelle Road side), you know what you are getting into as soon as you take the elevator.
Kaze (meaning wind in Japanese) a night spot and resto-bar in town is set on a rooftop, complete with helipad. Space is huge with plenty of open-air seating in the form of cosy cane furniture, lounge sofas, and even tall bar-like seating. But wait, have we mentioned the view of the yet? Because the biggest reason you need to hit Kaze is actually the view. Look at the Vidhana Soudha, UB City, and the Kanteerava stadium with the stately Bangalore Club all packed into one view with loads of greenery too. And as grand as it is during the day, it’s magical at night with the skyline all lit up.
You'll find Southeast Asian and Japanese influences in the food. Order Buta Kaku Ni (braised pork belly with a poached egg) for starters or Ebi Chilli (smoked bullet chilli prawns). Vegetarians, try the Kyoto Mushrooms with Japanese shrooms stir-fried with sake-infused butter. Order a Sashimi platter with 12 pieces of tuna, salmon, yellowtail, and scallops. There’s a whole lot of sushi, nigiri, and tempura for you to gorge on. Cocktail lovers, sip on The Days Of Sakura (a vodka, triple sec, strawberry, lime, hibiscus, sake, ginger, and cucumber) and The Three Minutes Of Thyme (a mix of gin, sake Chamomile flowers, bergamot, Asian ginger ginseng blend and fresh thyme). They also serve Sake and Shochu.
