Thanks Farukh.
Try the place if you ever visit Bangalore- I found it charming.

Thanks. Take your laptop if you have one and have any light 'work' to complete, or dive into their assortment of magazines. There's enough to keep you engaged while your order is being drummed-up. I think they have board games as well.

Default Huliyappa's Donne Biryani

Tried Huliyappa's Donne Biryani located at CBI RT Nagar, it's a very small joint but clean. The menu is limited with Chicken Biryani and mutton biryani and some dry dishes.

I tried the Donne chicken biriyani and guntur chicken, the biryani had a rustic taste to it, decent quantity of rice and chicken with Sherwa and a curd with vegetable salad.

It may not appeal to Biryani purist, but worth a try.

If you want idlis/vadais, there are 3 million joints in Bangalore where you could find them. A Continental breakfast is another matter altogether.

Congrats, Rajeev. Very eloquent, dude. You may be new to this place, as the EB never left Bangy. I live across in DefColony and within 5 mins of here you can have a fantastic EB at Cream N Crust, Woodstok, Smoke house Deli and the new 'Leaping Windows Cafe' opp Indiranagar Club. A little further we have Ants Cafe, Cafe Max, Bistro and the fantastic 'A Hole in the Wall' in K'mangala.

The Red Fork and several smaller cafes like News Cafe, Sports Cafe, Egg Factory @ Ulsoor all serve an excellent Conti breakfast. But thank you for reviewing a new place.Looks like a well-priced Adda!!

Also, not to detract from your piece, but you probably meant 'invocation' and not 'innovation' as it came out below, probably thanks to your spell-checker.

"while the mashed potato oozed molten cheese as though a tuberous Mt Vesuvius had spewed up its Dali-esque Mascarpone, offering up an innovation to ancient Roman Gods—an innovation that was headed lasciviously to the ..."

Waseem,

There is a store by the name K Ahmed Stores, diagonally opposite to this store is a small complex, on the left side of the complex in the ground floor.

Little Italy Indira Nagar: I went to this place on last Thursday with my wife and a cousin. We had the misfortune of ordering the buffet. It was a disaster and we came back with frustration. Each person were charged little more than 600 rs. They never made us feel that we have ordered for buffet as the quantities were scanty. There were just 3 starters and we were served one small plate of each starter for all 3 of us. Despite of requesting more than once to bring at least two plates of each dish the waiter preferred to ignore our preference. They just have one variety of pizza in buffet which is totally bland and very basic. The pizza had a sorry look and longed for some toppings and there were none. Add to that one salad and two varieties of pasta( cheese based White one and a red one). The deserts were terrible and worth ignoring. The service is extremely slow, pathetic is a lesser term to describe their attitude. I will never visit this place again.

Tried Bakasur at Park Square Mall, ITPL. I'd say the buffet there is really worth it @ Rs.499 plus taxes.

Pretty huge spread both for vegetarian as well as meat lovers. The food tasted awesome. I'd rate it much better than hyped up wannabes like Barbeque Nation.

The place is named after a character in the Mahabharata who used to eat a truckload of food at a time. So the theme basically is to be there when you are really really hungry and eat as much as you can.

Haha, mucho gracias Juggy...I've lived here ALL my life, but obviously barely lived!
Now I've a heap of joints to check out thanks to you. All the other names are new to me, but I've heard Hole in the Wall mentioned in some circles.

Nope, meant 'innovation'

Guys, I forgot to mention where this place is located. At ESI Hospital, there's a traffic signal. If you approach this from the Domlur/Namdhari's end, turn left at the signal. On your right you'll see Bhikramchand Motilal or similar name sweet/chaat store- Give Me 5 is just around the corner!

Guys,

Any good place or restaurant chain serving authentic Tamil Nadu/Andhra style south indian food in Bangalore?

I have been in Bangalore for a year now, but most of the restaurants and take aways serving south Indian food don't have that *distinct* flavour of south India as we know it back in North.

As an example, consider the staple dish Sambhar - which is for some reason sweet in taste all over Bangalore. Not the spicy and *hot* like generally expected of by a North Indian .

Any pointers to authentic Tamil Nadu style south indian food (Dosa/Idli etc.) in Bangalore - specifically North Bangalore?

How is Vasudeva Adigas (Opening in my locality North bangalore in a couple of days) ?

I have always thought Sri Krishna Cafe in Koramangala served good Tamil Nadu food. Especially the sambhar tastes just like home.

Vasudev Adigas serves "sweet" Sambhar. Atleast the one where i had did.
