Shahi's has seen quite a few Team-BHP meets in the past, courtesy moi.

My home is just a walk away from the Indiranagar RTO / BDA Complex. I've been a regular for 10 years now.

Need to try Narmadha's. Thanks for the suggestion, Mr. Umvarma!

Shivaji Military Hotel is in Jayanagar / Banshankari I believe.
Yes, its near the Koramangala BDA complex.

Parking is not a problem as you can utilise the BBMP parking in the bus terminus
Be prepared as this place is not very clean and experience a lot of rush during weekends even for a parcel service.
Thanks unk9ja!

In Kabab Magic, shawarmas are served only in the evenings, mostly after 6.30-7 pm. This was the place where I got addicted to Shawarmas. Btw, the biryani here is not worth it.

Pavan, somehow I don't like Ammis Biryani at all. As Suhas said, it doesn't seem very fresh and the taste is not so great either. I am yet to try Hyderabad house but I am a long time fan of the Hyderabadi Biryani (on Victoria Road) we had the other day

Suhas, Shivaji military hotel's biryani is a different type of biryani and I am a very big fan of this place. The only irritant is the long waiting time on weekends. It is located very near to Banashankari Bus stand.

You haven't been there in a while, have you?

Due to popular demand, they've started serving them after 1 pm! How awesome is that! *winks*

I need to try this place. It isn't far from Jayanagar, an area I frequent.

Actually, now that I think of it, it's been quite a while since I ate there. So, they serve shawarmas during the afternoons, that is awesome!!!

Nowadays, I get my regular dose of shawarmas in a small place near Nagarbhavi circle. These are a bit spicier than the ones you get in Kabab Magic, but still good enough. This is kind of a fully 'Indianised' Shawarma.

You know, come to think of it, even the Kabab Magic Shawarmas are sort of 'Indianised'. The one you get @ Savory (Frazer Town) is probably closest to the real deal, complete with Pita Bread, humus and pickled beetroots *yum yum*

Nagarbhavi circle, eh? Which one? The crazy one where the Ring Road underpass is, or somewhere else?

Yes near the ring road underpass. This is immediately after the bridge to your right, on there road towards Bangalore University campus. May I ask why you call it crazy? I presume you've had a bad experience there

Have you tried Shawarma King in Frazer Town? It belongs to an arab family and their shawarma is very different from what you get in other places. I took a friend of mine who is a frequent visitor to UAE and he said it's the closest he's had in india compared to the real deal. Plus the different dip they have is too good. Check it out (It's right next to the Bus Stand on MM road.)

Thanks, got it.

Not a bad experience, but irritation at how drivers forget common road sense and tolerance / patience. Traffic going towards Chandra Layout and Vijayanagar is impeded by the narrow turning, where at least 3 lines try to muscle their way into 1 line. Coming out of that BU road, one is faced with open mouthed 'guggoos' trying to wade through oncoming traffic in whatever space they can get into (but not get out of).

Since there is no entry to the south-bound Ring Road lane going left, all traffic (Nagarbhavi AND north & south-bound on RR) goes north towards Nagarbhavi to enter the RR. Even I avoid Mysore Road by using RR till this point, or go towards BU if I am going to Concorde Mysore Road, RR Nagar or Gopalan.

Never been there, so not sure but ... this could be either the Tahini based dip (sesame / til base), or Labneh / Tzatziki (thick yoghurt base) dip. If so, it would be the genuine stuff used in the Arab world.

As a comparison for the genuine stuff, one has to visit Ranoosh, the Lebanese joint on KH Road. It is owned and operated by a Lebanese chef. Slightly pricey, but totally VFM unlike the likes of Fava, World Cafe, Zaks and Lebmex.

There is a new eatery at HRBR named Al-Aharman which sells Chicken/Mutton Rolls.
Chicken Roll is priced at Rs 60 and is huge.The chicken pieces melts in your mouth and the roll also has french fries along with juicy chicken pieces. I am not sure about the exact location as the roll was parceled by my cousin.I am also told that this place draws lot of crowd on weekends and the waiting period is one hour. I am visiting this place tomorrow and will come back with more updates.

True. This place is a free-for-all during the morning & evening. I usually take the university route and Moodalapalya main road to reach office in the mornings and in the evenings, I go straight to Nayandahalli through the ring road to reach Mysore road and then RR nagar. But when I crave to eat the rolls, I go up the bridge, grab the rolls and head into BU to rejoin Mysore road and Rajarajeshwari Arch.

Meghanas serves nice biryani but it isn't authentic Hyderabadi dum-biryani. Kabab Magic on RV road is decent but not very hygienic either. I've tried every possible biryani-joint in Bangalore apart from this Shivaji Military Hotel.

Suhaas,
Have you tried lazeez near Empire Hotel, Koramangla ? They aren't very fancy but they serve some good Biryanis and rolls. Exactly what i am crazy about. Though, it isn't Hyderbadi Biryani but the lucknowi one.

Went last weekend to Mekong, a new chinese place on Sarjapur road. It's right opposite the kaikrodahalli lake on the terrace of the building that has Mom and me store.

Ambience is very nice with a beautiful view of the lake.

Food was very nice. A bit on the spicier side but taste was good. It's indian chinese like mainland china but without the premium bill.

We went for lunch there.
