Brahmin's is a time tested, popular, ancient restaurant in old Bangalore.Located in Basavanagudi and frequented by a very discriminating, long term clientele, I had heard of it but had never actually gone there.

One winter morning my sister and brother-in-law took us there. The food was everything that I expected. We had the idlis, vadas, khara bhath and of course the piping hot "kaapi" - coffee made South Indian style in a drip filter.

The place is incredibly clean with someone wiping the stainless steel table every two minutes. The turnover of diners is very quick and the tables are for standup eating. We saw many many people come in, order, pickup, stand, eat and leave. This is not a place to linger when it is crowded.

The prices are very reasonable and the food quality is top notch. Only a limited offering of vegetarian food is offered. If you want a taste and ambiance of old Bangalore, Brahmin's is the place to go. We went in around 6:45 AM as we were told the place gets very busy.

We went there for our wedding anniversary. I didn't make a reservation thinking its a weekday night - we were told by the hotel front desk it was full. Upon letting them know of the occasion, they were kind enough to get us a table.

The food was superb - easily most authentic and best Thai in Bangalore. Ambience is also good with outdoor seating with the view of their gardens.

We were stain at Oberoi so on the first day we decided to have dinner at the hotel since were really tired and ignorant of the fact that Rim Naam is super famous in banaglore and all over india we landed at Rim Naam and to our surprise it was the best thai food I ever had in my life. I ordered veg tom yam soup and it was perfect , fresh and just the way soups should be - made from scratch , free of all the packet stuff. Pad thai was delicious and the green thai curry was yumm. The chef is from Thailand, so they maintain the authenticity of the cuisine. We loved it so much that we again ate the night before checkout at Rim Naam and they served us complimentary desserts that was made of chestnut and it was too good. Babu is doing awesome work there and made sure we got the best food. Babu gave us some cookies and a plum cake that we could take back home as souvenir from them , wow this was so thoughtful of them.
So babu and the team keep up the good work!!! you rock...

Rim Naam is one of my favorite restaurants in Bangalore. The food is incredible. The dining experience is enhanced by the wonderful surroundings / atmosphere. It is a perfect escape after a busy day of meetings and the craziness of the Bangalre traffic.
