What Makes It Awesome

Just letting y'all know, they're open for business, taking safety very seriously (so call and book a table!), but also delivering home should you not feel comfortable stepping out. 

Designed to represent delicacies and quirks alike, there’s everything from Guntur Chicken to Kerala Beef Fry. We picked the Iyengar Bakery Egg Puff and it was nothing short of divine – flaky on the outside and soft inside. Then came the Brain Dry Fry which was lamb brain deep fried in masala and Kay Eff Cee (skewered chicken on a kaddi — on the bone). Try their soups and salads – think Kosambari with Feta cheese and Rasam loaded with crab meat flake additions! From the bar, Paati’s Magic Rassam – a whiskey-based cocktail with ginger, green chili and rasam powder, was super spicy but with a great kick. The Hyper Monk, lots of Old Monk and espresso (oh hello insomnia) and Kashayam are also top picks! 

Mains include Meals Ready which is pre-plated or you can mix and match as usual. We had the Myrusu Saru Curry, a succulent lamb korma. All Meals Ready come with choice of red rice, ghee rice, appams, dosas or parottas. Another great option in the section is the sweet and sour Potato And Green Mango Curry – perfect with fluffy appams. Quirky biryanis, Meen Moilee on a tapioca mash, Highway Pandi Curry and of course, the divine Pandi Spareribs coated with typical Coorg spices and natural honey, are other options to try here.

They  also have thalis — vegetarian, chicken, seafood, and all-meat. You get four starters, and you can pick from a curated list of main. It’s actually easier if you pick this. Just switch off the brain, and eat to your heart’s content, da! So for quintessential Bangalore food, language, set-up and even drinks…this place is unmistakably and effortlessly like home.


Their options on Swiggy and Zomato, are limited, and they service only within a certain radius (Dunzo tasks to the rescue, we say). So order away. Most of the starters are still on offer. We're eyeing the spare ribs, beef fry, Puliyogare Poppers and Andhra-Style Chilli Chicken. Mains, biryani all the way!
