Try the Punjabi Tadka which is opposite Wipro (EC Phase1). It is next to Ladoos and serves all variety of dishes. The food is good but the place gets packed to the hilt so be prepared to wait or plan for an early lunch like 12noon or so.

The soda-fied rice is the reason why I don't like these places so the Andhra meal is generally a no-no, better to order a-la-carte so options reduce somewhat since you don't wanna eat chinese/north indian food at an Andhra style restaurant

Had been to Hunan on New BEL Road on Sunday. The place is really good. Slightly expensive but well worth it.

I understand that the BEL Road one was their first. The Koramangala one is the second. Their food's first class.

Had been to couple of restaurants ( tamilnadu cuisine)

1. Arusuvai Madhuram,HSR Layout, Bangalore
http://www.arusuvaiarasu.com/index.html

Pure Vegetarian restaurant run by Arusuvai Natarajan family ( very famous in Marriage catering services in Chennai ).

Ambience - 2/5 ( Similar to marriage reception halls )
Food - 4/5 ( Typical marriage meals )
Service - 4/5
Value - 3/5 ( Over-priced for the food & ambience )


2. Hotel Junior Kuppanna, Koramangala, 60ft Road, Opp to Nandana Grand
Specialized in Non-Veg & Veg items ( kothu parotta, Parotta, Dosai)

Ambience - 4/5
Food - 5/5
Service - 4/5 ( most of the waiters know only tamil )
Value - 4/5

A must visit place for people who like tamilnadu cuisine. Went there for dinner and will be visiting soon for lunch

Where in (North / West) Bangalore can one get Sambhar with the typical Chennai taste? Even A2B is bad - they have sweetened their sambhar like the Darshinis (just to compete, I guess).

The only place I found with authentic 'Madras' sambhar was surprisingly The Higher Taste in ISKCON. Even the drumsticks were cooked just right (not mushy, but firm and green).

If you drop the North/West Bangalore requirement and move Eastwards, you may have some options

Krishna Kafe in Koramangala was good and had that 'Madras' taste, haven't been there in a while.
One more place where you can possibly experience it is Murugan Idly Shop (they also run Andal Mess in same building) on 80 feet Road near 12th Main.

Yo yo, I am a BTMian. Below are trusted Chicken Biryani places in BTM Layout. I have personally had Biryani these places and they were good.

1. Spice King - On 80ft Main Road, near BTM Water Tank.
2. Hyderabad Gateway - At Swadishtha Ahar junction, above Spiritz and More shop.
3. Mirch Masala - Check out their Chicken Tikka Biryani (one of my favourites) - Above Sweet Chariot, near Swadishtha Ahar junction.
4. Birinz - Towards 7th Main road, a little ahead of Mirch Masala.

I know this joint - our usual 'too many people to cook for today' fall back option ever since it opened!!! No, their sambhar - though it is different (salty, not sweet) from the usual Bangalore sambhar - is nowhere close to the Madras stuff.

Tried Benito's in kammnahalli last week. Love the warm ambiance & the food is great too.

Its opposite Jalvayu vihar. The restaurant previously there was called casa picola i think.

We tried pizza, sandwich, sizzler and few smoothies. The bill came to 300rs per head.

Well for me it was different as far as Sambhar goes... After years of saying "NO sambhar and DOUBLE helping of chutney please" at Chennai it was nice to say "sambhar AND chutney" please at Bangalore Lest it spark another fierce debate , the food I love most is Andhra food, which I was first introduced to at "Bheemas" in Church street and the famous Bangalore Sambhar at the darshini on the same street almost opposte Bheemas!

Didn't even know that Casa Picola had gone from there . Will check this place out soon.
