Lazeez! Is 'Zeeshan' also located in JP Nagar?

My bad! I thought it of as 'Lazeez'. So what would be the items to look out for in 'Zeeshan'?

Not an issue.
I thought Lazeez might have opened a branch in JP nagar. They have closed down BTM outlet.

Zeeshan must try is of course the mutton and chicken biryani. Apart from that the laccha paratha, chicken and mutton chaanp, chicken tikka/reshmi butter masala are pretty good, and so are the various kinds of rolls (mutton, chicken and egg combo rolls). Best had as takeaway, especially if you are with family.

Seems like the famed Paradise Biriyani of Hyderabad has finally arrived in Bangalore.
Check out the Zomato link below.

Any BHPians checked it out yet?

Default Kuttanad, HSR Layout

Saw this newly opened restaurant judging by their "Now Open" signs on our way back from the Renault Service Center at Silk Board and decided to give it a try.

For those impatient to read the next few paragraphs, I have just one word for you: BEWARE.

We (my family) ordered 3 Fish Curry Meals, I Beef Olarthiyathu and 1 Beef Curry. Even though the restaurant advertises itself as a Kerala restaurant, it has North Indian and Chinese food also which multiple reviewers at Zomato had asked to steer clear of.

Everything except the two beef dishes were ice cold. The rice was overcooked and pasty. Accompaniments to the meals were pretty much the standard Kerala veggie fare of 4 veg dishes, fish curry and pickle. The beef dishes were done well though.

A person who I suspect was the owner took our order. He was in a tearing hurry and wanted us to blurt out our order in a few seconds. Service was horrendous and I can't remember the last time I visited a restaurant where all the employees were running around. Some of it was funny akin to watching a Charlie Chaplin movie -- We would see a waiter run half way across the room, remember something midway and stop abruptly, and then run back in the opposite direction. This happened more than once. As we were having our meals, one irritated old lady complained that she had been waiting for her bill for 20 minutes. This restaurant even brought back memories of my stay in Hong Kong when the waiter threw the serving plates onto the table in front of us.

In terms of price, the fish curry meals are affordable at Rs. 120 a pop, that too with seer fish. But the a la carte dishes are pricey and in our case cost ₹220 to ₹240 which is definitely too much. Karimeen Pollichathu is an eye-watering ₹600.

Went there the previous weeked and had the mutton biriyani - it is by far the best biriyani i've eaten in Bangalore.

Not the spicy kind - this one is more flavorful and full of aroma.

Is this the one on the left when coming from HSR - BDA signal towards jakkasandra? If so, this place was shifted from 27th Main on HSR road. I tried it once for lunch, found it to be good. Had a fish curry means, veg meals and a thali plus a beef dry fry, which we all liked.
They are pricey, they even charge you for the extra pappadam .

I recently tried the thalassery restaurant on Madivala 20th Main, the road that goes behind Madivala Kallada office. Went for the Thalassery Chicken Biriyani. Was disappointed. There was no flavour. And I had the idea that for Thalassery biriyani they fry the meat, but this was not.

Yep, same one. They are pricey in unsuspecting ways as the price of the meals is quite reasonable, but the a la carte ones cost a lot. I was unimpressed by the food and the service was terrible.

Looking for answers to these.

1. Where to go if one has the urge to eat banana fritters (pazhampori) and other Kerala snacks (ada, sukihyan, etc.)? Can someone suggest a place close to Koramangala if possible?

2. Best place to go in Bangalore to buy Kerala-specific veggies like khoorkha?

Usually available in the New Thippasandra market due to the large number of folks from god's own country living nearby

The Kerala veggies are now available at a streetside vendor, opposite a church opened on Bannerghatta Road, just before Royal Meenakshi Mall. He is there on the weekend mornings. We typically buy Koorkha, chembu and so on from him.

Try here. This is couple of streets behind Madivala Ayyappa temple. Serves almost all veg and non Veg Kerala snacks. And this has been running for years. The prices have gone up these days though. We used to get Banana fritters for Rs3 earlier, it has gone upto 8.
Other options are behind the travels offices at Madivala, mainly on 20th Main road. Almost every bakery serves the snacks there.

For folks on Sarjapur road, there is a vendor who sells these on Sundays outside Mount Carmel Church, Carmelaram. You get Koorkha, tapicoa, etc here.
