A buffet – West Indies style!

Gosh, I just noticed that there’s been no mention of food lately. So just in case you’ve been wondering why we haven’t been posting about one of our favourite topics, here’s a peek into Sue’s Food Place :)

Located in Indirinagar, Sue’s Food Place has been one of those haunts that I keep going back to in Bangalore. It was, in fact, one of the first places that my friends told me about when I had come to the city. They lived nearby and this was a favourite haunt of theirs, so it wasn’t long before I was soon introduced to the joys of Sue’s lovely spread.


The place is rather homely so don’t expect a flashy ambience or decorations. There are loads of memorabilia, especially signed mementos from the West Indian cricket team who usually visit this place when they’re in town.

The owner Susan John who is from West Indies, decided to settle in Bangalore years ago. You can say that WI’s loss has been our gain!

So you do get a few dishes from West Indies but with all kinds of influences, so be prepared for a few surprises. They have a huge spread available on Friday, Sat and Sun for lunch and dinner and that’s when you should go for a taste. There’s a wide array of great dessert to end the meal.


Starting with the soup, you can go on to the salads – there are usually at least 5-6 to choose from – egg, chicken, green vegetables, potatoes etc. You will be spoilt for choice! There are both veg and non-veg salads.

They usually have fish, chicken and pork on the menu for the main course. And even crab sometimes. The crab curry, if available, is really delicious and a must-try. Rice is a staple diet in that part of the world also, so you can expect it in many forms including pulao and fried rice.


The last time I visited, just to give you an idea, there was fish cutlets, roast chicken, fish curry, cauliflower bake, veg pulao and quite a few other dishes to keep you satisfied.


Unfortunately, the place doesn’t serve alcohol, because a glass of wine on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon would have been perfect with the food. But try the coconut water concoctions with mint leaves – very refreshing. And then treat yourself to a caramel custard, some pudding and delectable cake.

Ah, Sunday, come soon!

    Thanks Anita for telling us about this one. I’ve lived in B’lore most of my life and never knew about Sue’s.
    I’m gonna make it a point to lunch there on my next visit home :-)

    sriram: the buffet is about rs 250 as far as i remember. apart from the buffet, there is also the normal menu on other days. a meal for two will cost around rs. 400-500.

    mehak: good, as far as i remember! but i’m biased towards the fish and other delicacies :)

    av: do give it a try!
