A very nice place with a nice variaty of beer. Not the most exciting beer, and several of the selection was not available. Food was good, and in nice quantities. Ambiance reminded me of a british pub (indian stile).

The second microbrewery in Bangalore and one that has become so popular, itís almost impossible to get a table on weekends without a reservation. Perhaps thatís the reason the service can seem, at times, a bit frazzled.
On to the beers then, there are six on tap. Give the Basmati Blonde a miss, itís nothing special. The Tintin Toit and Weiss are both good summer beers - Light, refreshing, with strong citrus overtones. and excellent head. The best beer here though is the Colonial Red - a proper ale, with every sip full of flavour and the hops packing a punch. The flavours are very earthy, cherry-like and itís as close to a British ale youíll get in the old colony!
The food at Toit is excellent, be it bar food like the minced beef in potato jackets, chicken nachos and potato skins with bacon or the amazing thin crust pizzas. Another thing worth trying here are the communal cocktails...massive goblets with 6-8 cocktails in them to be shared through straws. A nice concept.
My biggest gripe with Toit is that they never seem to have all 6 beers on tap at once. The Tintin toit in particular, is always in short supply.
Still, if youíre in Bangalore, this is a must visit place - pretty people, great beer, raucous atmosphere - it has it all.
