Here are our favourites:


An establishment that first started in 1908!
That is simply a reason enough for anyone to give an arm or a leg if need be but, simply make their way down to the NEW GOVINDA RAO MILITARY HOTEL in Cottonpete. Dolling out delicious Biryani and some sublime delicacies; this is indeed the place to be deemed as a foodie haven!
Also, try their Mutton Kheema and Chicken Fry!

Over 80 years old! Packed day in, day out! Biryani that sells out every day! That is SHIVAJI MILITARY HOTEL for you!
Legendary is indeed the most modest status, with which we can deem the establishment by Rao brothers; that strongly believes in serving delicious food which is simple and authentic.
When you make your way down; a mutton fiesta is what awaits you when you dig in what SHIVAJI MILITARY HOTEL has up for grabs! Mutton Biryani. Mutton Pepper Fry. Mutton Liver. Simply delicious.

Almost 50 years old and bang in the heart of the city market lies N.V. NAIDU HOTEL!

Talking about 'what they have to offer' and 'what we loved'; the MUTTON FRY indeed stands out for, it is bound to wake up even the most sluggish taste buds.
Pairing the Mutton Fry exceedingly well, if their take on MUTTON BIRYANI! The piping hot dollop of the same rightly boasts of generous portions of meat, that is cooked to the perfect softness that it can be teased away with immense ease. With a spicy mutton stock gravy on the side; a satisfactory burp in involuntary!

Add: Opposite Parimala Theatre, Kalasipalyam Main Road.

Like all the others, while they of course don't offer a plush environment but, their food is indeed what lures everyone. Take their MUTTON KAIMA GOJJU for instance; the traditional Karnataka styled curry is loaded with ample spices and herbs, making for an extremely delicious meal that can be add with Parotas, Chapati, Rice or even Ragi Mudde!
And if that doesn't get you going, their take on the ever-so-classic CHICKEN LOLLIPOPS surely will.

Add: 528/A, 1st Floor, 14th Cross, Shastri Nagar Main Road, Jayanagar.

Yet another, 'hole in a wall' outfit that we have came across and absolutely loved, is the GOWDRU HOTEL.
Serving quite a diverse variety of non vegetarian goodies, what stands out is their MUTTON BEEGARA OOTA! Ask for the same and out comes a platter of Ragi Mudde, Chapati, Rice, Rasam, Biryani, Boiled Egg, Mutton Masala and Mosaru Bhajji; served to you on a banana leaf, that easily redefines your idea of ample portions at pocket friendly prices.
More so, even if you ask for their BRAIN FRY or MUTTON CHAPS, it is bound to awaken even the most dullest of your taste buds, in the most outstanding way.

Add: 23, opp Aishwarya Bar, Appareddy Palya, Indiranagar Double Road.

Pick anything off their menu; it is rolled out withing minutes with piping hot Parotas or Rice. To start a sleep inducing meal, there isn't a more apropos combo but, that of a 'glassful' of LEG SOUP with PAROTA, that soaks up the hot and spicy concoction exceedingly well.
Top it off with their CHICKEN MASALA, that is again one of their signature offerings. The dhaba style serving is lovely for the ones who hate the sweetness of butter chicken for, they are served with shredded chicken, tossed in a mildly spicy gravy with the tanginess of a tomato.
The star offering is of course their highly recommended MUTTON BIRYANI, rightly boasting of chunks of juicy, tender meat. It is a bit drawn out dish but be certain that it will confer you with a biryani you have never eaten before.

Add: 86/3, near Canara Bank, South End Road, Basavanagudi.
Contact: 9448524311

While, one may deem the 'Local food in Bangalore' to be idlis and dosas but, it is surely without the all famous MILITARY HOTELS! Don't you think?
