One more hint, I am not much into Chinese and sea food. I don't mind any type of meat including pork or beef.

Quick bite: Kaati Zone, Church St. Rolls for about 65 bucks, not too bad, but they used to be better. KFC, Brigade Rd. McD's, Brigade Rd. Koshy's, St Mark's Rd -- especially the fish and chips.

If you're on Church St, you really should try that small place, Queen's. They have very good North Indian/Punjabi food. It's a little pokey as far as atmosphere goes, but the food is good. And it should be well inside your budget.

Then there's always Empire. I hear they have a buffet these days, which is ridiculously low-priced.

No Cover charges (on weekdays). Weekends they might charge a cover fee, but can be set off against the final bill.

No restriction on singles any day.

cheers:

At one time, they used to be the only joint that did "phulkas" in Bangalore, apart from the Sharma joint in Malleswaram.

I must have missed reading it, but Imperial on Residency Road didn't seem to figure here! They were the originators of the Bangalore-style Chicken Kababs, I think, apart from a mean Mutton Pepper Fry. As pokey as Queens, but hey - one goes there for the CP/KP + kabab (cherwa and salad free), not for the decor.

Isn't that 'glitzy' place in Koramangala near the JNC cross an Empire joint?

Yes, Imperial is better than Empire, and yes, that is an Empire near JNC. Diagonally opposite, and closer to JNC, is Paramount.

Your right DerAlte, impys started it all.

Imperial for kababs and bheja fry, Empire for the grill.

For Punjabi food you could try Danny's Dhaba at the Indiranagar RTO and also another Dhaba down the lane beside the Gurudwara @ Ulsoor. I havent tried the latter yet, only heard about it.

Biriyani Paradise which is just off commercial street, opp. Police Station. Its the last lane on the right, tiny place opposite the Madarsa. Excellent biryani and sholay kabab!

oooh..you brought back good old memories! When I was in Joseph's, a bunch of us would go to that bar opposite Imperial,and after a few bottles of beer we'd head over to Imperial for the kababs. YUMMM-O!!

Anyone tried Kosmos on Cunningham road?

Also how are the restaurants at crossover point? They have India gate and great wall I think.

Barbeque nation both at Indiranagar and Koramangala is a great place to go to. Unlimited starters and then buffet for 450 + tax.

Actually used to be at the old place.. Cosmo.

Kosmo @ Cunningham is done up tastefully, the restaurant is a tad expensive and has fusion foods. So if you order a lentil soup and it looks like a bowl of daal dont be surprised I enjoyed my steak, though I got a well done when I asked for medium. Nice portion of asian vegetables too(I can see v1p3r doing a double take).

Wed, Fri, Sunday at Kosmo see's major crowds flocking for the EDM dj sessions.

Finally made it to BBQ Nation a few weeks ago, some real spicy starters. I couldnt get myself to crawl to the buffet after the non stop starters.
