Here’s some good news for the travellers. Bangalore has a variety of food options for the veggie lovers and the meat eaters. Of course you’ll find a mix of North Indian, South Indian, Chinese and Gujarati cuisines but the array of snacks you get at the restaurants is a must try. Although every nook and corner of Bangalore has plentiful eating options, here are a handful to make your search easy:

  • Koshy’s

Bangaloreans are loving it and so will you. Koshy’s is the most popular eating joint in Bangalore. Steaks, bacon sandwiches, big cups of coffee and fish and chips - they’ve got it all. It is one of the oldest eating joints known for its food and service. There is room for fine dining and an area for smoking as well. The spicy prawn curry, assortment of omelets and the grills are simply irresistible! The crowd here is sort of mixed - students, couples and working professionals. The place is usually crowded, walk in and find out why!

A meal for two would make your pocket lighter by INR 700 without alcohol.

Address: 39, St. Marks Road

MG Road Area




Telephone: 080 22915840, 080 22213793

  • MTR

More popularly known as Mavalli Tiffin House is the birthplace of the Rava Idlis. During World War II MTR fell short of rice to make idlis. That’s when they used rava or semolina instead and came up with the first Rava Idli ever. This place is clean, service is good and gives you total value for money. It’s the place to try out the idlis (of course) and also the local dosas. MTR is a vegetarian joint.

Shell out about INR 300 for two at MTR.

Address: #14, Lalbagh Road




Telephone: +91-80-2222-0022, +91-80-2223-0471

  • Mainland China

If you dig authentic Chinese food then Mainland China is exactly what you seek. It’s a much sought after fine dining place so making reservations would be a good idea. Priced a bit higher than most Chinese joints it has enough and more delicious options for both the vegetarians and the non vegetarians. The buffet option is definitely more pocket friendly. It has a calm ambience and good service.

A meal for two would cost INR 1400 approximately.

Address: 14, Church Street

MG Road




You can also find Mainland China outlets at the Orion Mall, Indiranagar, Koramangala, Jayanagar and Malleshwaram.

If you are looking for authentic Bangalore dosas and idlis, then Adigas should be your next stop. It has a neat ambience and vegetarian cuisine and a menu that fits perfectly within a tight budget as well. The stand and eat option makes the service even more prompt. It’s just the place for a quick and economical bite.

Set aside about INR 250 for two for a meal here.

Address: Dickenson Road

Commercial Street Area




You can also visit Adiga’s at Bannerghatta Road, Koramangala Ring Road, Commercial Street area and Madiwala.

There are several restaurants concentrated along MG Road and you’ll find several clustered at Indirapuram as well. Most open around 10 am and shut shop between 11 and 11:30 pm.
