GING is the newest addition to Bangalore's vibrant dining scene. Perched on the top floor of the Royal Orchid Central Hotel at Manipal Center, the restaurant has enviably the best location in town, overlooking Ulsoor Lake, Cubbon Road and acres of army green.
GING is a play on Beijing, and the food is Chinese inspired, with a few hints of Asian flavours thrown in for the quirk. The food menu stretches from the known staples like dim sum and duck noodles to hawker grill from the streets of Asia.
As you walk down the grand staircase into the restaurant, you are greeted by an enormous dragon painted onto porcelain plates, inspired by Chinese blue pottery. A glass tower with a champagne & whisky bar is the first thing for you to experience. Sitting above this bar is the DJ, who has the best views overlooking the restaurant and the alfresco space.
Beyond the restaurant, which is a mix of modern decor, antique wooden framework, bird cages and backlight panels, is a sleek modern outdoor space. This beautiful alfresco verandah is 10 floors above the city. Pillars are clad in terracotta inspired by the warriors of Xian, with a blue porcelain inspired lattice wall wrapping the walls ending with the outdoor bar that overlooks the city. With the breeze and the views, the mixologist has been trained to serve unique cocktails to suit every mood.
The restaurant has a private dining balcony overlooking the space and is arguably the best vantage point to sightsee and dine in a private yet public space.
GING will play host to live music at night, fun yum cha lunches in the day, and relaxed cocktail sessions in the evenings.
