An evening at Tijouri - Radisson Blu Atria, Bangalore!



Tijouri in Hindi means coffer. Isn’t an amazing feeling to visit a restaurant with the same name? It speaks a lot. Recently Radisson Blu Atria Hotel has revamped their Indian Fine Dining restaurant and now it is Tijouri. This was my first time at Radisson Blu and the new fine dining Indian restaurant surely caught my attention. Nestled in the heart of the city near Palace Road, Radisson Blu Atria Hotel is one of the iconic hotels which you should visit for personal or business dining.





Tijouri stands out for its elegant interiors, wall paintings, beautiful cutleries, dim light setup, and of course mouth-watering food. They have included quite a few interesting South Indian dishes to the new menu, thus a wonderful Pan Indian experience is assured to their patrons. Executive Chef Kashi made sure that each one of us had a great time at Tijouri.

What we relished –


We started with a mocktail which tasted like Apple fizz drink.

Shuruaat (Appetizers)


Hare Matar ki Tikki – Green peas mash stuffed with dry nuts, and cheese, cooked on a griddle.
Raan-e-Murgh – Stuffed Chicken drumstick marinated with Awadhi Spices, cooked in clay pot oven.


Masala Kuzhi Paniyaram – Rice dumpling with South Indian tempering, served with spicy Guava Chutney. Guava chutney was amazing; something new to my palate.


Gilafi Sheekh Kebab – Lamb mince mixed with spices, cheese, onion, and capsicum cooked in a clay pot oven.


While enjoying the delicious appetizers, I got my favorite drink – Cocktail made of Vodka, mint and Green Chilli. It was spicy and refreshing.

Mukhya Bhoj (Main course)




The main course was exceptionally good.  They served the Tadka wali Dahi ( Hung curd with spicy tempering), Chef’s special Bhindi Palak ki Bhurjee, Dum ka Murg (tender chicken pieces in rich cashew nut gravy), Nalli ka Salan (Chef’s special Dum cooked lamb shanks), and Tijouri Dal Makhani (creamy black lentil gravy made of tomatoes, ginger, and garlic cooked overnight on slow charcoal fire). To polish off these gravies we had hot Naans, roti and Saffron dum rice. The main course was paired with Tijouri special ‘Khaara Masala Spiced Wine’ which was spiced Merlot wine. This drink will go well with our Masaledar Indian food.


Mithai (Desserts)

Khubhani ka Meetha (The royal Nizami special dessert made of dried apricots, honey, nuts and served with rabdi).

Boondi paan baked yogurt – Betel leaf flavored baked yogurt with homemade boondi. I loved the texture and consistency of baked yogurt but didn’t really like the betel flavors in baked yogurt.  

I am happy about one thing – our Chefs are coming up with out of box ideas to create magic with Indian food.  As a Home Chef and Food Blogger, I would say creativity at its best when you play around with Indian recipes just like the Betel leaf flavored Baked yogurt. It’s an acquired taste, not everyone will love it but the experiment which Chef created is just magical.


Overall I enjoyed my first visit to Tijouri. This is a perfect place for your romantic dinner with good food and ambiance. A meal for two would be ₹ 2500/- (approximately). #Yougottatryit
