What Makes It Awesome?

The once-famous garden city has now become known as the pub or the silicon city. Yet a few things have remained constant and have become an integral part of this beautiful city. Tom's restaurant, is one such place. A classic old school, with a legacy for the most authentic Mangalorean Catholic experience. The entryway is an arched glass façade, with a bit of a French feel, but the moment you enter, the warmth of traditional athangudi tiles and the simple wooden seating welcomes you with a tinge of nostalgia.

We tried their specially curated menu, which for starters included The Prawn pepper fry, which had a distinctive coastal flavour to it. Next, we tried their Mutton Sukkah, the exotic Mangalore dish, the desiccated coconut and the roasted spices were a perfect combination for the juicy meat. The Chicken ghee roast, another classic dish, had a perfect blend of tanginess to the ghee roasted tender chicken.

For the main course, we tried their Special chicken curry and Appam, the hot fluffy appams, melted in our mouth with the heavenly chicken curry, that also had a tinge of sweetness. Kori roti( rice wafers) with Kori Gussi ( Mangalore chicken curry) was a crispy snack we all fully enjoyed.
The tangy coconut-based curry, also went well when paired with the beer dosa, another Mangalore speciality.

We also tried the traditional Seer fish curry with rice, the coconut-based tangy curry was soul-soothing.

For desserts, we tried Crème brulé, which has a caramelized sugar coated top layer and layers of spongy custard. Their choco caramel ganache was also good.

The other must-tries here are Ghee roasts, Sukkahs and Biryanis. Also, drop by on a Sunday morning for fluffy appams paired with stew.
