BBQ, Buffets And Brunch: Your Guide To Eating Out In Marathahalli
AB’s — Absolute Barbecues
Welcome to a food wonderland! This busy (you might struggle to get a seat on the weekend) restaurant takes BBQ to the next level with its seemingly unending seafood, meat, and exotic offerings. They’ll serve up the regulars (everything from chicken to corn) on your table but you’ll have to head over to their wish grill to pile your plate with emu, rabbit, and octopus. Once you’ve had your fill of starters then hit the mega buffet that features north Indian delicacies for the most part. We have dished out everything on AB’s here.
3B’s — Buddies, Bars, Barbecue
A popular venue for team outings, this place stands apart from the usual BBQ grill + unlimited buffet places with its lounge-like ambience. You can settle in with a chilled beer and then work up an appetite at the foosball table. When you are ready to dig in, they’ll dish out a selection of kebabs, tikkas, grilled fish, soups, Gulab Jamuns and a lot more. Their buffet options (without the beverage option) are competitively priced.
Located in Radisson Blu, Saffron is just the place to visit when you want to pull out all the stops. They specialise in North West Frontier Province cuisine and the menu comes with all the highlights. Set aside the calorie counter and savour chef specials like Murgh Tikka Doodiya, Aatish-e-murgh, and Kadai Gosht done up in a spicy green masala. You can pair these with fragrant biryanis or with their line of toasty, Indian breads.
Flechazo has always been a crowd favourite. They too specialise in buffets but you can expect unusual cuisine offerings like Mediterranean and Asian flavours here. First, hit the counter with the Cold Food Shots before making your way to other live counters doling out chaats, dim sums, and sushi. Thin-crust pizzas, traditional Lebanese breads, and seafood specials also line up to please you. Don’t go away without trying their Nitrogen Ice creams though.
The Brew and Barbeque
When you want to unwind after a long day of work with sumptuous food and chilled brews to go along with that Brews and Barbeque is your best shot. You can settle down in a cosy booth at this massive restaurant with their mugs of ale and order up bar favourites like nachos, tikkas of all kinds, BBQ meats, and pizzas. They have the buffet option too if you’re interested.
The Globe Grub
This restaurant in Marathahalli can satiate your never-ending appetite with their endless counters with every cuisine you’d want from Asian to Continental. Their Chettinad Chicken, Dal Makhni and Singapore Crab Curry are must tries. Enjoy their fine contemporary and rustic ambience while indulging in some scrumptious wood fire pizza made at their live counters and engaging with their expert chefs. The Globe Grub offers a great community style dining experience for friends, families, and colleagues, as they do seem to host a lot of corporate team lunches here.

The ambience resonates with the eclectic range of dishes, serving great seafood (duh), grilled veggies, meats including squid and rabbit, and delectable desserts.

Chulha Chauki Da Dhaba
This dhaba styled restaurant will satisfy all your desi needs. Their ambience is breath-taking, blending the Punjabi dhaba style with fine dining. Well known for serving authentic lassi in kulhads, Chula Chauki Da Dhaba creates a whole experience in terms of theme, music, and food. Paving the pathway to Punjab with the dhaba usuals such as biryani, Kalmi Kabab, Chicken Lahori, and buttermilk, they really do go all the way to please your senses, especially your tongue but not limited to it.
When you’re in the mood to feel like the upper deck crowd of Titanic (barring the tragic end), fine dine at Melange located in Radisson Blu and gorge on their exotic buffet spread. For a relaxed date night or just an end-of-the-week treat for yourself, Melange creates a serene setting with spacious layouts, classical music, and a mesmerizing landscape. The exceptional staff tends to your every need without crossing the line and being incessant rather than continuously available. It might range on the slightly higher end of the price spectrum but is definitely worth the visit.
