Launched in September 2012, Angela’s Bangalore is on a mission to become the definitive source of information for the best-of-the-best in upscale Bangalore.
Through a mix of enticing photo galleries, written reviews and videos, you can ‘experience’ the latest hot spots, the best in luxury businesses and top brands, right from the comfort of your very own sofa … or on your smartphone. The site has been built to make your on-the-go searches for the most incredible products and services in Bangalore easy peasy!
I have established strict criteria for businesses recommended on the site and each of them has been personally reviewed by me, Angela. In the past I have reviewed hotels and restaurants that ended up having shoddy service or poor quality and they did not live up to expectation. When that happens, I am honest with the owners and explain that their business did not qualify for inclusion on my site. I share detailed notes to help them improve, and offer to try again with them in the future when they correct the problems.
It’s my goal that my site entices you and inspires you to try amazing local businesses and weekend getaway spots every time you visit. By not accepting paid reviews, the recommendations on Angela’s Bangalore are genuine — and truly from only the best of the BEST of Bangalore. Simply put, I turn away any business that does not fall into the luxury or affordable luxury categories (although maybe a few ‘midnight snack spots’ or landmark businesses might make it in … but Bangalore wouldn’t be Bangalore without them!).
