Bangalore or Bengaluru, as one may, has pivoted in the realm of the gastronomia, to become one of the hottest joints to wine and dine in. Sinfully, that too. Best restaurants in hotels in Bangalore, then figure as the best cocoon for the hoggers and the connoisseurs alike, among you.

Here’s listing, in top notch order:


Forbes rates it as one of the best fine dining restaurants in the world. If that doesn't speak enough for itself, then read - elegant wooden furnishings and regal interiors, consisting of silver cutlery, silk tapestries, curtains and chandeliers of an enormous spread of splendour. Jamavar, among other places to eat in Bangalore, in every sense then, is a maiden of opulence and elegance. The culinary treats offered here are an amalgamation of several delicacies throughout the length and breadth of the country.

Timings: 12.00 p.m. to 2.00 p.m. and 7.00 p.m. to 11.30 p.m.
Cost: INR 2500 for two.

Dum Pukht Jolly Nabobs

Employees of the erstwhile British East India Company, were heartily termed “jolly nabobs,” the attitude after which the restaurant is named. The ambience and interiors inside recreate the majestic splendour of the glorious times of the British Raj. Dum Pukht Jolly Nabobs, in ITC Windsor reads - high ceiling settings, pastel shades on the walls, a hearty melange of reds with the golds. What to expect? A heart warming meal - English or Indian or a fusion, something you must try - cooked in a slow “dum pukht” fashion - vessels rendered over with a soft, slow flame, allowed to cook slowly. Erm, yum!

If seafood and coastal cuisine are your savoury favourites, then look no further than Karavalli. The cuisine offered here are seafood specials from different parts of the country. The bet is between scrumptious and obnoxiously delicious. However you place them, they are perhaps better placed in an ambiance, surrounded with interiors which include - antique furniture, maps of seafarers and high walled ceilings. Coastal fare is served up on banana leaves and you could simply take it out to the splendid open-air courtyard where the lush greens abound.

Rim Naam

Fresh as its name, this alfresco restaurant is set in the heart of a lily pond, with overflowing green wings from its various corners. A sweet and overwhelming fragrance of frangipani shrubs fills the entire space in Rim Naam and makes the little wait for the Thai culinary spread worth it. Tropical gardens, bamboo groves and makeshift segments of rain forests simply add to the entire experience of being cradled in a burst of green love. A breeze here and there and some traditional Thai spread with lemon zest and mint make the food an equally refreshing relish on its own accord.

Pan Asian cuisine in its heights of glory are served here, but also read generous helpings from flavours hailing from Japan, Vietnam, Malaysia, China and Thailand. Flavoursome and flavourful, Oko springs out some of the best surprises and pleasantly so. In terms of its food - Tom Yum, grilled prawns, shrimps and fish, based on your choice of sauces and authentic flavours of basil, lemon, garlic and chillies is a good way to go. Besides an open air setting, with huge bay windows overlooking a lush golf course with dim blue lighting by the night can never be a bad idea.

The Pink Poppadom
Bathed in shades of pink, with a burst of some fiery colours and some escapades with shades of beige and pastel, this is what you would come to perceive as “interesting,” as it were. The Pink Poppadom is a fancy nomenclature for that and well, the food, which is the perfect equation of fusion, not too much, not too less and yet a unique style in every which way that you could possibly conjure. Some items on the menu which reeks of this essence are - Lobster Moilee, Blue Cheese Naan, Flambeed Rasmalai Baked Alaska.

Purples, violets, deeper shades of grey and creams, do a song and dance number here, and this is just talking about the interiors.

Herbs, spices, aromas - mixed with kebabs, rotis, and minced meat varieties of all sorts and sautees will make your evening flow into a wonderful night together.

The Lantern

Shaped ingeniously in the form of a lantern, The Lantern is an eclectic mix of two kinds of spaces woven together - fine dining and a nightlife ambiance. They co-exist mutually - psychedelic shades of lanterns play with blues and chino browns, which give a complete fine-dining-to-club feeling. What adds to the experience is the play with all flavours Chinese, old and new, experimental, fusion and authentic, to dish out some of the best dimsums, soups, finger foods and some all-time chopstick favourites from the kitchen.
