Try Shivaji mess, next to Banshankari bus stop. Now they have opened in a big place. You can go with your family. Very good Biryani you get here.
Better avoid Amaravathi when you are with family.
Thanks Sushrutha! Does kolhapuri's have ragi balls on their menu ?

Kolhapuri's is dead opposite Prashant. This is situated in the GandhiBazaar Market complex (next to SBI ATM). Even this is a good place.
For family dining, it best you avoid Amaravathy. As dreamdiesel and sushrutha have already said, it is just a small dinghy place.
Thanks Addy!

once again as one of our friends said earlier in the forum, you should forget those "ambiance" kinda stuffs.
Now, where is this chandoo's in malleshwaram ?

IIRC Kolhapuri's does have ragi balls on the menu.

Chandoo's is in 8th Cross Malleshwaram. You have to take a right at 8th cross from Sampige road. The hotel comes to your right side.

Nice egg dishes & most are VFM dishes.

The Egg Factory on St.Marks road is really good (its located on the road just before Dewars). Their ambiance is completely laid back, excellent international music, great great food. The owner Yogesh ensures every customer is satisfied and he takes inputs to improve. They serve only Egg and veg dishes. No meat. Coffee,tea, packaged juices, fresh mocktails available. I am a regular there.

I knw I am going way off track, but if anyone is interested in having some good Thai,Burmese or Chinese cuisine and I am not talking about the Indian-Chinese which is rampant everywhere, then one may have a look at The Aroy - Restaurant.Bar.

This place is one notch up in my top 5 picks in Bangalore.

Reasons :

01. Superb Ambience.(Open Air and Inside)
02. Super friendly and accomodating Staff.
03. Roof Top.
04. Great quality and quantity.

Refer - Aroy

Do make a reservation even if it is a weekday as it is frequented by many on both weekdays and weekends. Ask for Ajeet or Nobu. They are the ones I normally go through to get any requests or reservations done.

Happy Dining !!

Cheers.

I suggest you go to Ulsoor Lake which is roughly 2.5-3 km from Domlur and try out Bobby's Dhaba next to the Gurudwara. You will not miss it because there is always a huge Q there! I strongly recommend this place!

Note: Do not go there if you're expecting 'decent' ambiance. It's the great Punjabi food that keeps the cash-registers ringing at that place!

A new restaurant has opened at Raheja Arcade, Koramangala - Om restaurant.

It is a pure vegetarian restaurant which serves homely food.

I am not the kind of person who visits veg restaurants. For me, eating out = non veg.

But I decided to visit this place just out of curiosity. I tried the veg thali.

The food was good, but a bit too bland for my liking. (I like eating spicy food)

Visit this place only if you are craving for north indian style home cooked food, do not expect typical restaurant type food.

Though the ambiance is average, the food more than makes up for it. I'll go to the extent of saying I've never tasted anything like this in Bangalore. Remember to try any one of their noodles or fried rice. If you are not a big fan of hot food, remember to tell him to go easy on the red stuff. Since you can see them cooking the food through a glass window, you can be sure of hygiene. The manager is also very polite and treats you like royalty. It is a pity that the location is kind of like the middle of nowhere
I just came back from this place having a wonderful dinner. Absolutely lip smacking food these fellows make. They are not even 1 month old and obviosuly trying their best but amazing food they make. Not at all expensive and absolute VFM.

The ambience is not that great and they are still not done with their interiors, as told by the owner Anwar. It might take some time to create the atmosphere they want and it is slightly understaffed. They can do well with another person or 2. Great news is that they are ready to deliver all the way upto Hebbal area so that I can eat away to glory watching TV

@triedeverything, thanks for trying this restaurant and recommending

North Indian, Mughlai and Chinese. We tried Kashmiri kabab, Chicken lollypop, Fried rices and noodles. Couldn't try more because of the space constraints in the tummy

Every dish was worth it. Whatever dish you try, am sure you will not be disappointed.

P.S - I remember the owner mentioning increase in staff and variety of cuisines as well. But when I don't know. They are not even a month old, so may be we might get to see a few more dishes a few months from now.

Anyone interested in proper bengali food?

Visit Bhojohori Manna!
Location: Koramangla 6th block, opposite Koramangla Club.

One of the very good bengali food restaurants.
Home away from home food!
If you are fond of fish preparations, this place is a must try!
Bengalis will know what I'm talking about:

Ilish Macher Paturi (A preparation of Hilsa Fish)
Daab Chingri (Lobster cooked inside a tender coconut)
Kankra Jhal (Crab Red curry)
Barishali Ilish (A typical Hilsa fish Prepartion from Bangladesh)
Chingri Malaikari (Prawns in a soft coconut paste)

Prices are a bit on the higher side, a meal for two will cost around Rs 1000 - Rs 1200.
At first glance, it seems to be too costly and probably offers much less than what it can offer. The decor and ambience is not upto the mark.
But I dont care...
The food is Fan-bleeding-tastic!

Visited Laajawab on Saturday- pretty good as a matter of fact the wife liked it so I too had to fall in line. For those continental types please do visit Herbs and Spices, Whitefield. The fare is good but you will keep coming back for the ambience!! Anyone dined at the Saffron Patch, whitefield??? if so any feed back?
