Default Re: A Guide: Eating out in Bangalore

This past week my friends and I headed out for a drive to try something different. We went aimlessly on kanakpura road and after driving for around 25km, we came across this upmarket dhaba restaurant called 'Paul's hut'. It is not exactly a dhaba, because they serve like any other restaurant on porcelain plates, with good furniture and decently dressed waiters. The place was fully themed with aquariums. Each dhaba 'hut' is fitted with waterfall-glass windows (don't know what that is called) on all sides and in some places even the floor was made of glass with an aquarium below it!

Anyway, food and service are decent, prices are cheap (came to 1000 for 4 people) and ambience is much better than other Dhabas on NH209, no dirty crowd here. Good place to visit with family if travelling on this stretch.

When going from Bangalore, this comes on the right hand side after ~18km from Banshankari signal

sorry saw your reply only now. In China was awesome, definitely one of the better restaurants in blore for chinese cuisine. I'd gone with my parents and they also enjoyed it. Many thanks for the reference amitoj. Any suggestions for trying italian cuisine in and around Koramangala for this weekend? Pizzeria Romano and little Italy are already done.

I don't know about Koramangala, but you have to try Sunnys on Lavelle Road. There is another one on 100 Ft Road Indiranagar too. By far, the best Italian I've ever had in Bangalore, without a doubt!

Glad you enjoyed it! I dont think many people know about this place though. I had gone there for dinner on Saturday and the place was empty!

As for Italian, its not exactly in Koramangala, but you can still try it out. Its called Spiga and its on Vittal Mallya road. Actually, its on the intersection of Vittal Mallya road and Madras Bank road.

Casa Del Sol is another good place, but its on Residency road.

I would rate these two above Casa Piccola (although i have not been to Casa Piccola in ages)

And thanks for the Dhaba info. Will definitely try it out someday.

Completely agree with you. It is still a bit undiscovered. Even I went for dinner. They seem to have some good lunch buffet going on all days of the week. Found some information here -

In China Restaurant Bangalore | In China Church Street Restaurant Reviews | In China Restaurant dining offers | Booking Restaurant In China Bangalore

The buffet looks like a pretty large spread, almost on the lines of Mainland China. I'll try out this buffet sometime too

No need for coin toss. Sunny's is leagues ahead of Casa Del Sol. Infact I found Casa Del Sol to be below average. May be they had a bad day. I have been to Sunnys lots of times and have had great experience.

You could also look at "Via Milano". It has good italian food. If you want take away or not worry about Ambiance, do check out Veekes and Thomas. They now have a Koramangala branch.

Veeks and Thomas is a great place for budget Italian fare. An entire meal for two, including beverages, would not be more than 500-700. Great for college students who have a taste for Italian. The ambiance is great too, and the service has never disappointed me. They have several branches, a few fine-dining restaurants and a few take-away joints and even a street-food esq place in Jayanagar.

But if you can splurge, then there is no Italian restaurant better than Sunny's.

Do check out the Spaghetti House/Spaghetti Kitchen, or something like that. I've heard that it's pretty good too.

I must mention, that a budget Italian meal at Veeks & Thomas could even be 200. A simple vegetarian pasta would be about 75. The only way you can make it 500-700 is if you splurge on the most expensive dishes. They do serve lamb and so on. So if you stick to one dish, you're going to pay about 200-300. But if you go the whole hog (pun intended ), i.e. staters, side orders, main course, dessert, etc, it would set you back by 500-700, which I think is brilliant!

Golkonda chimney at Kundanahalli gate is good. I liked the kalmi kabab not only for the taste but also the quantity they serve is good.

I had visited Golconda chimney a while back, I wouldn't recommend the place. I didn't find the food that tasty , and it's not worth for the money you pay.
