We are back on the restaurant journey and this time it is to a 2 month old restaurant Tasteation in Tharamani. It is strategically located In the Tharamani link road opposite TCS in Ramagiri extension. It is in the ground floor of Velacity, deluxe service apartments.

Since the Restaurant is part of the service apartments, the entry to it is through the Service apartment entrance. The entrance is not a typical one and can be quite misleading but once inside, a nice restaurant unfolds in decor and presentation.
