View of Bangalore skyline from Paparazzi

I have been there recently as part of a office party there. One of my colleague stroked a deal of unlimited drinks, 2 non veg starters and 2 veg starters for 2 hours. Then buffet dinner for all members. They have a cafe restaurant called Pinxx at the ground floor. The treat of good view started, as lift started to climb higher to reach the 10th floor. The lift has a glass cover and gives a good view. Paparazzi restaurant is very good in terms of ambiance and view. One can see the skyline of MG road, Ulsoor and Ulsoor lake as well. I was able to take some nice shots of the night skyline.

The party started with starters and drinks. The starters were decent and drinks were served. Meanwhile it started raining. What an amazing feeling! One can could see the rain showering Bangalore till distance. Then comes the food. The food items in the buffet was very limited and taste has nothing much to write about. There was no desert apart from a Mugdal ka halwa which was very average in taste. I have read on Zamato that Paparazzi has lost its earlier sheen. If taste of the food is the main criteria then you may skip this place. However, if view and ambiance is the criteria, then you should visit.
