Lowdown On The Ambience

The restaurant gives its diners a stunning, panoramic view of Bangalore from its 13th floor location. At night, along with the soft glow of the lights and relaxing music you can sit on a high table and look at the twinkling lights of Bangalore and enjoy some great food. Perfect for a date night we think.

What’s On The Menu?

With dishes from Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam among others, you will be spoilt for choice here. From Por-Pia rolls or fried spring rolls to Mee Krob, crispy noodles, choosing an appetiser here is a challenge, and that’s not usually the hard part. They also have satays {a personal favourite}, dainty skewered meats or vegetables slathered with a spicy peanut marinade and served with their signature satay sauce.

They even have Bazoi or Bao buns {steamed Chinese buns} with fillings such as grilled chicken, curried crumbled tofu satay and the highly-recommended super crispy Double Cooked Pork.

The Curry Saga

On the Edge is famous for its curries, and the people-pleaser would be the Burmese Khow Suey, a curry chock-full of flavour and comes with meats {chicken or beef}, seafood {prawn} or veggies, and a choice of toppings such as fried garlic and coriander. We’d also recommend the chicken and prawn laksa here, which comes with fragrant lemongrass, chilli and coconut milk. They also make a mean Malacca Curry with Roti Jala. Roti Jala {a sweet bread which is almost too pretty to eat}. And the pho here comes in three flavourful varieties: Hanoi {a light broth}, Saigon {a robust broth}, Hue {a spicy broth}.

One glance at the dessert menu and I guarantee you’ll magically have space in your stomach. Waynad, a coconut and jaggery crepe roll with coffee ice-cream and Moksha, a baked chocolate fondant are our picks.

So, We’re Thinking…

The staff will be more than happy to help you choose what to eat and will even teach you how to use chopsticks. If it gets chilly they also offer blankets to keep you as warm as your food.
