South Point Mall on Golf Course Road is quite, it wont really meet a shoppers desirability but just the right place if you are foodie and like casual dining, specially Japanese cuisine. Predominantly the mall is catering to expats staying in Golf Course Road, it happens to my hangout place as well for a hot coffee, its quite and soulful.
While my coffee continues favourite beverage, I do get tempted on beer if happy hour board flashes out of an outlet and this is what took me to The Hangout by 1861.
The Hangout by 1861, Golf Course Road
Ambiance: Very calm and soothing, not sure if the restaurant owner likes it. The decor is very simple yet in placed in a very ergonomic way hence very comforting. The restaurant has an open kitchen and that’s make the whole ambiance very attractive.
Teak wood finish with graffiti from western world makes it look old barrel house with modern furniture. Live band is available after 7 Pm which was ok, not that something you will go for but well managed in the given capacity.
Food & Beverages: Food is right on the spot, the taste we wanted, very satisfying to palate. The chef has really cracked Italian cuisine, we tried Lasagne and it was delicious. I couldn’t click, it was so tempting to eater and I didn’t missing a photo of it. Not a fan of Italian cuisine, just try there burger, equally amazing and very filling, forget eating main course after it.
Customer Centricity: Very good, lots of attention, not sure if it was because the outlet was empty but you could sense the warmth. The person standing at entry is welcoming, you feel wanted.
Value for Money: Absolutely yes, given the taste it offers.
Infrastructure, Parking & Driveway: Managed by the mall authority, parking space is always available and parking fee caped at Rs 20, I just love it.

Go for it, a chilled beer and big mouth burger will make your day, nothing fancy, just the food and beer.
