For that old Bangalore ambience

It's not the same restaurant that we old Bangaloreans frequented. But if you want to grab a quick bite, or chat up over brunch of lunch, then this is the place. In the heart of the business district, Airlines is quite an affordable joint. The menu is standard fare. Cuisine is just about okay. But... read more

Well, I would like to Thank Airlines Hotel for reopening the restaurant and at the same time Tripadvisor added this restaurant immediately... This is one of the legendary and oldest restaurant of Namma Bengaluru... Dosa's are very good here and the perfect outdoor dining area below the baniyan tree... Coffee at this restaurant is just amazing and can't express in... More

Hi I have been here many times with friends, the wooden pizza is ultimate.Truely value for money. If you are expecting good interior then this place is not recommended. Gives a feeling of enjoying tea in a village. Its under a big tree even in summers this place is cool. Cons are Mosquitoes.

Common joint to meet my friends.evenings are crowded.Parking is full..but still the place is got its own charm.The visit is incomplete without a coffee and the mouth watering hot jilebis. Jus a suggestion you can always carry some tissue paper .Service can be better.Can look in to the hygiene part also. One of the best hangouts with friends.

Airlines used to be one of the few 'in car service' places even in the 80s. It continues to be so, albeit with a slightly smaller area (a commercial complex has come up in a corner.) The hotel had recently closed down for a couple of months and has come back with the same everything and slightly more grateful regular... More

I go to airlines just for Corner House. I have some light food from airlines and jump into Corner House for DBC. But earlier Airlines served good food with reasonable price but now the rates have gone higher and the food quality has become low. Should improve a lot

Was a good place for masala dosa, idli vada and their signature serving - steaming hot coffee in a glass tumbler. Over the last two decades it had been on a quality descend... but still had the reminiscent traditional quality. What spiked the interest was the appearance of Corner House for those with sweet tooth and ice cream lovers. However,... More

Airlines is an age old restaurant located in Lavelle Road. It was probably the first one to start off a drive-in restaurant in the city. People just drive in to grab the special coffee/tea served in big glasses. From past two decades I have visited this place many times, my favourite items are Masala dosa, idli-vada, filter coffee, Jalebi Sweet... More
