Had gone a few weeks earlier to "The Only Place", and realized that is the only place that has the worst and most arrogant staff... we were 3 couples, and me and my wife were first to reach... no one seemed to be interested in even attending to us, and after 5 minutes of standing in the middle of the place, (which was 50% empty), one of their educated staff walks across, and i happen call him. He takes the trouble to turn back to me, and then I ask "table for 6 please"... his reply "are all of you here ?", to which i replied the 2 couples are on the way... and his unruly reply "please wait outside, we can give you the table only if you all are here together only !"

This was really terrible ! with half the place empty, they refused even a table to sit on !!!!

I have never experienced such poor class of service in any place i have ever been !

This is "The ONLY Place" they treat their guests to such poor service.

Will never ever recommend anyone to go here to be humiliated !

If you have been travelling through India for a while now and in desperate need for a hit of beef make sure Bangalore is on your itinerary and visit ' THE ONLY PLACE' as it is the only place that can fill the void. Great selection of burgers and steaks and really tasty too, well worth a visit.

Maybe the statement is very abrupt and brash....but trust me whatever I have tried out, the Only Place is clearly a standout.
I picked up an interesting story on the net that the Only Place is named so as some time back, it was the only place in Bangalore to have quality beef. Well if that's the case, then the name is very apt even now. Hence my advice will be to stick to beef and you should not regret it. For starters, you can try the spicy beef. For main course, there is an array of awesome beef burgers and steaks. In case you want any change, you can try out fish and chips (with yummy tartar sauce) or lasagne. The desserts are no less and you should opt for cheese pie or apple pie. Beware, these dishes take long to prepare, so please order these well in advance ideally along with the starters.
One word on the ambience. It's excellent... one of the many open air restaurants in Bangalore. I have been here both in evenings and lunch time, and the ambience is just perfect. It is bit unique actually with lot of buzz. There's lot of crowd always so be prepared to wait.
Value wise, this place is hard to beat. Overeat as much as you can, it is difficult to exceed INR 600 per person.
Lastly, I have read many stories of bad service etc. It is not the best. But somehow for me, the rather old waiters busily pushing plates around sort of adds to the aura. A bit of a smile would have helped no doubt. :-)

The best steakhouse in Karnataka. Fish and chips are cooked superbly. I recommend the philly cheese steak, one of the specialties of the restaurant. Two things are bad about this restaurant, the long time that you have to wait for your food and the fly-infested kitchens.

This little place which is sorta like an open-air cafe is one of the best steak-house in the city for a simple reason, for consistently serving great steak and delicious burgers since most of us were even born. The Tournedos and the All American Beef Cheese Burger are what I suggest to everyone including the super-delicious Juicy Lucy burger. Price is okay
