“Nice Ambiance, Great Music”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

Music, Drinks, unwind, Ambiance. This place is good for that. But for teetotalers like us its a no go. The food here is average at best. Staying in Indiranagar never knew of this place and as its situated in the 3rd floor its difficult to sight. Loved the Music and the terrace. We played darts and the place has good a nice, cool, casual, unpretentious feel to it. The service I would say was poor and needs lot of reminders.

“Ambiance, Music, Food - its all there!”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

They have two floors. The lower one is 'pubbish' with fairly loud music and an open place where you could dance - I have visited this place twice and found their choice of music to be awesome! The upper floor is on the terrace, but has interesting seating and you can hear the music here too. They had several table games in the restaurant (I noticed TT, Foosball, Jenga). They provide you a tab so you can move around if you'd like to. People who come here do make a fashion statement. And finally, the food has been really good on both my visits. So I would have this on my list to come back again ...

“Great place to unwind”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

Following the current trend in Bangalore, Humming Tree is a restaurant / watering hole which is partially outdoors and on a terrace. Situated in Indira Nagar, this place occupies the terrace and third floor of a building on 12th Main. The signboard on street level is somewhat obscure and thus a little difficult to locate.
I have been here 3-4 times now, with different groups of people. Been here with a single friend, a group of friends and also with family.
Usually have sat on the terrace, in the uncovered aware during the evenings and in the covered area during day time. The last time, however, we sat on the 3rd floor because it was warm outside and airconditioning was the way to go.

Most of the times, I have landed up there when they had happy hours going. One nice thing in their happy hours is that instead of doing 1for1 on a pitcher of beer, they just discount the pitcher by 50%. Works beautifully for people who might not want to consume two pitchers of beer. Folk here are flexible enough as well. One time, they had just one bottle of the type of wine we wanted, so they just dropped the price on the bottle.

I have pizzas, here, beef fry, french fries, chicken wings, sandwiches. The pizzas are about okay. The beef fry is nice, and so are the french fries (thicker) and the chicken wings. I have had a Banh Mi (sandwich) which they did customize to some extent for me, but the bread was dry.

The last time I landed up there, they were running a Jameson promo. That worked out well too, and we got some free drinks too.

People are overall friendly, there is free wifi, food is decent, alcohol nice, and so is the ambience. The folk who arrive here as guests are folk you would be happy to mix with as well.

All good, will keep visiting.

“Lovely place and awesome music!”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

Lovely place! Right on the 12th Main, it has a lively crowd too.
It was a Sunday afternoon and the top floor was full, so we occupied the lower level.
The place had a rustic ambiance with awesome collection of music tracks. Surprisingly they had Happy Hours running which was icing on the cake. The food tasted pretty well too!
The collection of books could be little better though!

Would love to return to the place on a live music day. Considering the choice of the music they play , the live music should be a hit too.
