Anglo Indian Food Promotion at Raj Pavillion, ITC Windsor





ITC Windsor’s time travel to British Raj with Anglo Indian Food

There is something called ‘good experience’ and then there is ‘ITC Experience’, which is just top notch. Hospitality industry is a tricky game and only few exceptional gets to master them, ITC Hotels being one of them. In this three years of experience, I have been to over 100 hotels/restaurants/pubs but the kind of service and food provided by any of the ITC brands, be it Windsor or Gardenia is just unmatchable.

Last week, I was at ITC Windsor for a very special occasion, to celebrate the legacy of Anglo Indian cuisine with a bespoke menu featuring several all-time classics at Raj Pavilion.

Before I speak more about the amazing amalgamation of Indian cuisine and the English food scene, something more on the wonderful property of ITC Windsor.

Perched at the edge of a promontory in the heart of the city, overlooking the lush expanse of the Bangalore Golf Club, ITC Windsor re-defines the term luxury with a splash of royal dream.  Built during the Raj Era, ITC Windsor’s colonial architecture, its elegant colonnades and balustrades, fluted pillars, Georgian windows, its magnificent chandeliers and period furniture create a stirring ambience of unhurried luxury and old world leisure.


More than just Bengaluru’s finest business hotel, ITC Windsor offers a rich glimpse into the city’s past. Its hushed corridors, priceless art décor paintings of the Georgian and Edwardian Eras complemented by the regal splendour of the Manor Suites evoke the grandeur of a bygone era. 

Coming back to the food at Raj Pavilion celebrating the richness of Anglo Indian cuisine, the evening couldn’t have been any better with the never ending ‘royal’ buffet spread, the politeness of the staff and the impeccable ambience.



For the people who are not aware, Anglo-Indian food is the delicious result of the British Raj in India. Indian Khansamas (cooks) took aspects of British cuisine and amalgamated them with Indian methods of cooking, spices, ingredients to create Anglo-Indian Cuisine! There are soups tempered with cumin and red chillies, roasts cooked in whole spices like cloves, pepper and cinnamon, rissoles and croquettes flavored with turmeric and garam masala.... Over the years, Anglo-Indian cooking has become more Indian than British.

Raj Pavillion is a class apart and the buffet it offers is etched in the mind and stomach of the food aficionados. With an addition to its regular buffet, Raj Pavillion over the period of time promotes several cuisines, providing their guests a new experience every time.
