Whitefield area in Bangalore is truly deprived of good Bengali Cuisine Restaurants.
It was our Bengali New year and we were madly looking out for restaurants at the nth hour. All good Bengali restaurants are mushrooming in Kormangla or else in central Bangalore. No bookings were available for the ones which are  in the vicinity. After a lot of Googling we finally decided to go for SORSE, located at Phoenix Marketcity.
We were a group of 14 people including 3 kids. As we reached Phoenix, we started hunting for the restaurant. We were unable to locate it even after 30 mins of search as the restaurant had no inclusion in the mall map. Finally we reached the venue at around 8:45 pm.
The place is located on the top floor extreme end (opposite direction of the food court). A very small outlet with neat décor. The seating had been extended to the mall area to accommodate the guests.
We blocked two tables and jumped to order from the menu. We ordered nearly every other famous Bengali dish that was available on the menu card. They first served us hot Rosogollas. The complete order came after a whopping 1.5 hours. Maybe they were not prepared to take up so much order. Taste wise, food was okay but not exceptional.
The real challenge came when the mall AC went off (that was around 10:00 pm). The restaurant did not have their own backup ventilation/FAN/AC. And it was really very hot, humid and suffocating.
Completing the food became a punishment for us. The kids became cranky.
We somehow finished the food and took a group photo in sweat soaked faces.
The Bill came around 10,000 for the gang of 11 adults. It is quite over-priced owing to the experience we had at SORSE.
