Last Friday evening, the city was soaked in a Monsoon drizzle. Ignoring the rain, I and my 10 year old headed to SMAAASH at 1MG, Bangalore to try their 'Monsoon Season' menu and experience their many virtual reality games. 
Here's a photo and video tour of what turned out to be a fun experience...

We started with the fingercoaster, which is a Virtual Reality Roller Coaster where you can design your own ride path...

Although Virtual Reality made the ride almost like an actual roller coaster ride, boy was happy it was less dizzying...

Here's a video of the games he enjoyed the most...

Pangs of hunger after these few games took us to the restaurant. We hastily ordered a Chicken Basket. The Panko fried chicken were served with Jalapeno Mayo. This remained the boy's favorite...

The racks that once held the choicest liquors are now empty, thanks to a ruling by Supreme Court of India that bans sale of liquor within 500m of highways...

That doesn't stop us from having mocktails. I ordered a virgin mojito...

And a virgin pina colada for the boy...

Chicken Pakora is a deep fried monsoon specialty. There's nothing that gives more joy during rain than pakoras...

The cheese cucumber boat salad were cucumber boats loaded with cheese and fruits. It was absolutely amazing...

Hot Basil Fish was fresh and moist. The smoked chili sauce and Thai basil gave it the right flavors...

Minestrone Soup made with a variety of vegetables can never go wrong...

For the main course, I ordered Tandoori Roti's, which were soft and fluffy and Lasooni Saag, a curry where garlic and greens were stars...

Dessert was a Nutella, Banana, Peanut Butter & crispy Pretzel milkshake. Need I say more?

The boy was not yet done with the games. We went for another round of games.
Virtual Reality Hang gliding is the best activity after a heavy meal. It is just amazing to soar over scenic vistas...


Drive Batman's car...


Formula 1...

Dirt biking...

Hunting down some terrorists...

And fight in a Virtual Reality battle...

SMAAASH has some amazing and thrilling Virtual Reality games suitable for all age groups. The place is well maintained and the staff is very attentive. I found the food interesting too. 


  1. What a great day out the two of you had, and the food and drink, I could only consume a fraction of that lot, you must have been stuffed !! Mojito is my Daughters favourite drink.
    All the very best, have a good week, Gordon.

  5. Sounds like you had a lot of fun and the food looks amazing and my son Charlie says next time he would like to come along as they could play the games together. Have a nice day.

  6. What a wonderful place for a boy! I can hardly believe it. Wow! And your food photos make me hungry as I have forgotten to have lunch today (silly me).
    But first, I am so impressed by the ruling by the Supreme Court of India that bans sale of liquor within 500m of highways... Such a law would save many, many lives!
