You Spin My Head Right Round: Eating The Best Of King's Circle

Some of the city’s oldest and coolest eateries are housed within the 360-degree space that we know as King’s Circle. Here, we’ve picked our favourite ones from around the circle that we think you must try.

Café Madras

This place needs no introduction. An iconic 75-year-old eatery, Café Madras is known to make the most delicious ragi dosa {crispy and yum}, upma podi, bisibele baat, and amazing filter coffee. Go here for your breakfast and you won’t regret it.

Price: A meal for 2 will cost you INR 250

Café Mysore

And the case with Café Mysore is no different. You might have to share a table {yes, table-sharing has been a thing here for years}, but you won’t regret it because a spoon of the pineapple upma will transport you to a whole new world. Also try their rasam-vadas, idli gadbad and neer dosa.

Amba Bhavan

If you love a well made Mysore masala dosa, then you will love Amba Bhavan. Ideal for those looking at having a quick bite {their service is really fast}, this place makes fresh and piping hot idlis you will want to come back for. Also, try their upma which is known to be quite good.

Price: A meal for two will cost you between INR 200-250

Health Juice Centre

A good break from the south Indian trail, Health Juice Centre is known for its freshly made juices and shakes, along with those delicious sandwiches for munchies and kulfis for dessert {okay, not all that healthy, but tasty as hell}. Their juices, though, are very healthy and we’d say opt for king blossom, melon punch or the papaya orange among the many others. Their shakes, too, are delicious but those sandwiches are the real deal.

Price: A meal for two will cost you approx INR 350 - 400

Dairy Don

As much as King’s Circle is famous for its south Indian eateries, it also houses ice-cream parlours and dessert outlets in abundance around the circle. And if we thought the shakes at Health Juice Centre were amazing, Dairy Don will blow your mind with its Surat-style coco milk- which is available in over 10 variants. Moreover, all of their other milkshakes too are equally well-made and are really heavy.

Just Chill 7

Formerly known as Seven Eleven, Just Chill 7 gives you the most delicious ice-creams (softies, actually), which have been tasting the same for years! If you would really love to have a softy in varieties of flavours, given in a big cone, you know where to go. If you like simple flavours, you can opt for the vanilla, butterscotch, dairy kulfi, and strawberry. If sundaes are more your jam, they have the chic-choc, mello jello, sundae special and more!

Price: Price for two is approximately INR 200- 250

Koolar & Co

Who doesn’t know this Irani joint? Rather, who doesn’t love this Irani cafe? There’s nothing about Koolar & Co we don’t like, and in fact, if you feel like a pocket-friendly but scrumptious meal, it won’t get better than this. Go there for their mouthwatering kheema-pav, bun-maska, Irani chai and more.

Price: A meal for two will cost you approximately INR 400

Rama Nayak Udipi

If you love eating traditional South Indian fare, we can't recommend Rama Nayak heartily enough. They're completely veggie, like most of the restaurants in the area and are super pocket-friendly too!. They offer plate meals at INR 80 and a full meal at INR 200. The full meal is an unlimited thali that's served on a banana leaf - you'll get gravy, rice, veggies, buttermilk, sambhar and more.

Price: A meal for 2 will cost approximately INR 300

Anand Bhavan

Anand Bhavan is a classic udipi style restaurant - zero ambiance but delicious food! Tuck into tasty staples like rava dosa, ulandu dosa, onion pesret, dahi bhat, puliyodhari bhat and more. They also have daily specials that change regularly that you can dig into while you're here. Fast, efficient and budget friendly, this one's a win. P.S. The sambar isn't sweet - hallelujah.

Price: Price for two is INR 200 - 300

Ayyappan Idli Stall

We can't think of a better way to start the day than with a plate of fluffy, fresh idlis doused in spicy sambhar and a coconutty chutney. If that's your idea of a good time too, you can head to Ayyappan Idli Stall. Super fast service, good hygiene and soft idlis. Win, win, and win!

Price: A meal for two will cost you around INR 200
