Smile Food tips

Its nice to see a topic on food in Mysore. Well, I have been staying here for quite some time now, and being a foodie- have scoured the eateries of the city to quench the thirst for good food.

Anyway, I will be taking a different path from the other posts till now, and shall list the name of the places and the items that you must try- so that it becomes easier.

Secondly, Being a non vegetarian, I must apologize to the vegetarian crowd here, as I can suggest only few places for now- so bear with me. More will follow.

Ok- here goes:

1) The Roost: Ginger pork, Garlic pork, Chilly pork, Fish chilly

2) Bopy's : Fiery pork, Chilly pork, Chicken lollipops, Masala fried prawns. The pork here is more 'coorgi' than the Roost's.

3) Sindoora - Chicken Biryani (Sit there and eat in the afternoon), Chicken Kshatriya, Chilly Chicken. Generally ask them for the 'day's special'- and try it out- it will be usually nice.

4) RRR- I would suggest Buying only Chilly chicken from this place - Because truly- that's is now the signature dish- forget the biryani-which is no longer VFM (Too few,small pieces of chicken). The chilly chicken is out of this world, and believe me- you will need to have some emergency fire extinguishing material on hand. I usually eat very spicy food, but this one dish has brought me to tears many a time (Must be because I eat the chillies too). To do justice to the dish, I would suggest you to finish the chicken, gravy and the chillies- perfect with curd rice. One strange phenomenon I notice in myself is the initiation of a pavlovian reflex every time I think of the RRR chilly chicken.

5) Olive Garden - Try the Sizzlers, and the Non-veg platter. Do NOT try 'Cantonese noodles' - it literally stinks.

6) Empire- Mutton Raan, Mutton Curry, Malabar Porotta, Grilled Chicken.

7) Mughal Durbar - Mutton Biryani/Chicken Biryani , Mutton/Chicken Afghani, Chicken Kabab.

8) Biryani Paradise- Chicken Kabab. The biryani here loses out to mughal durbar.

9) Jewel Rock - Butter Chicken, Butter Naan, Dopiaza Chicken/Mutton

10) Veg Court- Their Buffet breakfast is worth every penny.

11) Karnataka Fisheries - Suprising find this one!- Evenings from 6-10.30pm you can find long queues waiting for Chicken fry and fish fry. Cheap and tasty.

12) Mezzaluna (Chinese) - Chicken Momos, Honey Chilly chicken, Honey Chilly potatoes, Lamb with Oyster sauce, Singapore Noodles.

13) Siddhartha- Noon Lunch Thali (North Indian), Evenings- Masala Dosa, Vanilla Shake.

14) Pai Vista (Gufaa restaurant) - Starter- 'Sultan ki Khanjar', Mains- Dum biryani, Chicken tikka masala, Fish curry.

15) Deja Vu (Kalidasa Road) - Jamaican Jerk Chicken - nice steak, Quesedillas, Chicken Lasagna

16) Cafe Pascucci- Overpriced yes!- but their desserts are awesome- Try the Concord and 'Chocolate overload cake'

17) Regaalis- Try the buffet lunch or dinner- its VFM. The dessert section alone is worth it. And it also serves the best pastries and cakes in town. Try the blueberry or chocolate truffle pastry.

18) Authana - Veg place- try the Chilly paneer, Masala Dosa, Onion/ Rava dosa.

This is the end of part 1 - Part 2 will follow- keep your eyes open.

@ascertain, it is high time you updated the part two of your list.

Recently, I had been to Gufha and Olive Garden.

Olive Garden used to be good, but somehow I did not like the food this time. The soups were especially horrible. The non-veg starter was quite tasteless, but the veg starter was good though. We ordered continental for the main course and it was okay.

Gufha has never disappointed whenever I have visited there. This time was no different. Good food and not too heavy on the pocket as well. There is another restaurant in the same building with a similar theme called 'Jungle' (IIRC). Have to check that out next time.

Also got a parcel from RRR Mysore to eat back at home in Bangalore last week. Got Mutton Biryani and Chilly Chicken. It was lovely. The only grouse with that place is the waiting time on weekends and maybe some people don't like the ambiance, but the taste is worth it.

Default Re: A Guide : Eating Out In Mysore !!!!

Hi All,

Planning a Bangalore - Mysore (Zoo, Palace & Chamundi Hills) - Bandipur (just a drive through the forest) trip this Sunday - Monday.

We have our Grandma with us and hence, decided to break one night in Mysore (Sunday).

Posting queries about the food part here -

We will start from Bangalore on Sunday, 06:30 hrs and expect to reach Kamat for breakfast at 07:45. Post breakfast we plan to head for the Zoo, followed by checking into the hotel (not yet booked).

Since my Grandma prefers food only from veg hotels, we have kind of less options to eat out. However, of late I have come across multiple episodes on TLC and Travel XP regarding best Mysore Masala Dosas in Mysore, however, I do not have a track of the joint that offers it.

Is it Mylari? Can some one please suggest a best-in-taste Mysore Masala Dosa joint? Space doesn't matter as we can have it inside the car as well. Taste is what I am looking for

I have been to Das Prakash in the past, however, they serve only Thalis during lunch hours. I am kind of looking for joints that serve Masala Dosas all day!

Thanks in advance for your inputs.

Try GTR , Gayathri Tiffin room . Not sure where is it located . I think it must be in Saraswathipuram or Chamundipuram. Has one of the best Masala Dose in the world.

Hotel Ramya was very good once upon a time. Not sure if it is the same. Try Nalpad on Devraj urs road. Good food. Mylari IIRC had best idly .

GTR is in Chamundipuram and is the best bet to taste good masala dosas, its off the JLB road and top it off with a visit to the nearby KSIC silk factory. It does get crowded but its worth the wait.
Hotel Nalpak on double road in Saraswathipuram is also an option with a typical laid back attitude but the service is pretty bad.

Recently had been to Hotel RoyalOrchid Metropole in JLB road for a Punjabi food festival.
The spread was small but each and every item on the menu was very tasty and healthy.
Pricing was high when compared to Mysore buffet standards.
Ambiance was execellent.
Overall :8/10

For the best butter dosa(benne dosa)/masala dosa visit Mylari in Nazarbad without fail. There are 2 Mylari hotels in the same lane and ask for the old hotel and they do have a display board which reads " we have no branches" .

You could also try Gayatri Tiffins in Chamundipuram, you would regret making a trip there.

Hi rjstlyles69, I hope you meant I wouldn't regret making a trip there

No Thanks Button available, however, I would like to thank you all for your inputs. As of now, I will be visiting GTR and Mylari, unless rjstyle reiterates the "regret" part!

One dumb question; can a Nissan Sunny make it to these outlets, or do I need to park it somewhere else? In that sense, DasaPrakash is good as the vehicle remains in their premises.

You caught me man, I meant wouldnt regret going there . I go in my scorpio to these places so you shouldn't run into any parking problems. When you go to GTR, park a little ahead of the hotel.

Arrow Re: A Guide : Eating Out In Mysore !!!!

A brief review on places to eat in Mysore (mostly non veg), I'll start with the small culinary jewels first.

1) Still hot on the list is Mughal Durbar: easily the best mutton biryani in Mysore. Other good items to try are chicken/Mutton Afghani, Sukhi phal.

2) Blue-Inn (opp. to KSRTC bus depot- 2nd gate) in Bamboo Bazaar area : This emerged as a very strong contender for the VFM category. Food is tasty, quantity is ok and prices are reasonable- has a loyal customer base. Items to try are Chilly chicken, Mutton sheek kabab (dont try the shami), Butter chicken and rumali roti combo, Golden chicken, Chicken kabab, Andhra tikka.

3) Mezzaluna (Continental): Go to KD road, and ask anyone for the Mezzaluna restaurant- you will mostly get directed to the Chinese restaurant from where you can get directions to the continental place (which is not too far away). Has one of the best continental food spreads in Mysore, and absolutely VFM. Good items: Pollo catania, Lasagna. Oh and I must mention that this places serves Mughlai too, the malai / reshmi kabab I had from here were absolutely the softest and mouth-melt variety- A must try!

4) Mezzaluna Chinese: Old warrior, still very good Chinese food at VFM prices. Chilly garlic noodles, Singapore noodles, Salt and pepper fish, sliced lamb, Momos are the ones to try out here.

5) Nanking/Nanjing: Good chinese/tibetian menu. Truly VFM. They do parcel service too. Chicken schezwan noodles, Chilly chicken, Chicken Manchurian, Momos (I now prefer Nanjing Momos than the Mezzaluna ones), Peking chicken, Chilly prawns.

6) Elements Bistro: Food was good, seating and entertainment was innovative. Prep time is a bit, but then attributed to fresh preparation, there is stuff to keep oneself and kids entertained- so no issues in waiting. Try the steaks, Fried choco bars.

7) The Roost (Hinkal): Still very good Coorgi food, Chilly/Pepper pork, Biryani (a bit oily).

8) Tegu Mess (KD Road): Noon meals are a blast. Very loyal clientele. Ghee rice/ Ragi Mudde with Chicken curry, chilli chicken, Chicken liver or chicken legs- its heaven for the taste buds, selection is limited so good for a one-two time visit.

9) Hyderabadi Biryani (Bamboo Bazar): emerging as a competitor to other well known eateries in the Bamboo bazaar area. The quantity of food is humongous. The Special mutton Biryani/Chicken biryani is a two-man job. Other items to try are the kababs.

10) Empire (KD Road): Do NOT go there for the lunch buffet- the taste is extremely ordinary, and leaves you hollow. The best dish served there are the grilled chicken (Best anywhere!), and Mutton Raann. Can try their Dosa chicken/ Appams too.

11) Casino Park (Bamboo Bazar & KD Road): Best kerala Parotas in town. Grilled chicken is second best in Mysore. Shawarma is very good. Do try the Al-faham chicken.

12) Eastern Food court (Bamboo Bazar): Newly opened, good Shawarmas, they put french fries in the filling too. Go for the plain shawarma[Which is good]- they try to sell the 'jumbo roll', but seriously, it's just a thicker bread with the same filling, at double the price- not VFM . Al-faham is the best in Mysore.

13) Kafe Biryani: Good andhra style food. Biryanis are very good and so are the curries. Some waiting may be required, as it is quite busy.

14) Embassy : a watering hole cum eatery, quite popular among the 'returning' office crowd. Lighting is not the best, but the food is quite good, spicy (as the water buffaloes like it) . Egg chilly, Egg manchurian, Chicken chilly and their fired rice. Not a family place. Ideal 'buddy' hangout.

15) Regaalis: On the expensive side, but their buffet is the best in Mysore, and truly VFM. Desserts/ Pastries are the best. Am a regular customer of their cakes and pastries for all occasions, and can vouch for their quality. Chocolate mousse pastry, Chocolate delight/ Blueberry/ strawberry pastries as well.

16) For those wanting a taste of kerala food: 'Ice world' in Bannimantap (on the road opposite to loyal world), is a small eatery which serves puttu/kadala curry in the mornings. Biryani/ Chicken/Beef/ Meals at noon, Pazhampori/ Parippuvadaas in the evenings, porottas in the evenings, and as a special- Kappa (Tapioca) biryani on sundays. Inexpensive and tasty.

17) RRR: I now buy only chilly chicken from here. I do keep a fire extinguisher at home.

18) Sindoora: Inflation has set in, and sindoora had to keep up, but still has good quality andhra food. Try the noon meals, Biryanis,' special of the day' items too.

19) Heritage 1905 (Near agrahara) : Popular watering hole, but also ok for families. There is garden dining. Try out the chicken lollipops, Chilly chicken, prawn items.

20) Sujatha Residency (Bannimantap): Nice, quiet watering hole + Family place. Very large compound, clean, Garden dining, good food. Great for hosting parties/ functions. Staff are very polite. Good items are the chicken starters (Tiranga chicken), Chicken reshmi kabab, Chilly fish, Egg chilly, Teetar. Cocktails are quite nice too.

21) Biryani paradise (Bamboo Bazaar): Chicken kababs (Boneless), tangdi kababs are your best bet. Biryani is OK. Takeways are advised.

Also rans:
1) Donne biryani (Biryani)
2) Melt (Italian fare)
3) Metropole ( Nothing exceptional)
4) The food truck (Opposite Loyal world, Bannimantap)- from 1900 Hrs to 2230 Hrs only (Try chicken roti lapat, rolls, sandwiches- popular amongst the college crowd)

Some newer jewels are under discovery, and I am prospecting. Will keep all of you updated- but for now this should do I think.

So many hotels (serving so dosas), but very few actually serve that stonking chutney and delicious sambar.

The chutney is better in mysore hotels since they try to make it fresh.

Default Re: A Guide : Eating Out In Mysore !!!!

I keep travelling to mysore every month and I have visited most of the places mentioned here. Although I want to know where I could devour some ragi mudde and mutton chops in Mysore. Currently, I'm used to Jai Bhuvaneswari Miltry Hotel before Sri Rangapattana which is awesome btw..... Have been to Tegu Mess, but this time have a lady companion with me, so that place is ruled out.

Mysurians (If that is the right word), could you help me out.....
