You simply have to go out there and try it out. No amount of time spent on describing it will do ! The taste is unique. May be its something they mix in their sambhar - maybe their chutneys are made differently. May be its the small thimble full of pure ghee that is served separately and that you must... More

I have visited the new place on Sampige road near the Mantri Mall. Good place for a traditional meal but would not recommend for... More

I decided to heed and go for South Indian lunch today. This place is not 5-star, but the food is near that mark! Simple, devoid of fancy plating but honest-to-goodness with refill(if one so like to do) and not heavy on one's tummy. And oh, so reasonable, will definitely visit again soon with the wage-earner in tow. Will be on... More

If you are not visiting when you visit Bangalore then you are really missing something in Bangalore. One of the pre-independent Hotels in Bangalore having... More
