Here are 10 best restaurants you must try in Koramangala, Bengaluru:

1. Kappa Chakka Kandhari:

This lively restaurant with an open kitchen takes its name from three ingredients unique to Kerala cuisine, including the tangy Kandhari. Nostalgia is the engine that brought together the three promoters of the restaurant. The restaurant’s One Pot menu and meal selection is dominated by rare central Kerala recipes.

2, XOOX beer grinder:

One of Koramangala’s popular after-hours hangouts and where you’ll probably find one of the best versions of a German-style Hefeweizen. If you’re a beginner, we recommend checking out their al fresco section and ordering their sampler which usually also includes the popular Citrus IPA. The menu of dishes is quite diversified but it is the Asian cuisine that has our vote.

3. Toscano Restaurant and Wine Bar:

Forum Mall remains one of the poles of attraction of the weekend in Bengaluru. Toscano is one of the oldest local Italian restaurants in Bengaluru and one of the popular dining options in this mall. It works equally well for a dinner party or a family weekend brunch. Discover their basil-crusted grilled lamb chops, spinach ravioli and their signature Kahlua mousse.

4. Social Koramangala:

Designed to evoke images of Bengaluru’s iconic Lal Bagh Botanical Garden, our favorite ‘Social’ in Bengaluru is reminiscent of a greenhouse – lots of natural light and greenery. It’s split over two levels and features the same energetic and sometimes quirky decor we love. You’ll find all the social signatures like honey chili fries, pork spare ribs, and the absolutely sinful PBJ (Peanut Butter Jelly toast with bacon served with ice cream.

5. Zingron:

Bangalore is home to a large Nagaland community. Zingron translates to “blessings of the morning sun” in one of the many Naga dialects. This is where you can play truth or dare and accept the spice challenge with bhut jolokia chutney (arguably the world’s spiciest chutney) in the mix. We recommend the smoked pork thali or the Axon (or the akhuni) if you’re ready for the zesty flavors that come from the fermented soybeans.

6. Nasi and Mee Asian Canteen:

This popular Asian restaurant brand started its journey in Koramangala. The high-energy interiors will transport you momentarily to a hawker center or food street in Southeast Asia. The menu combines iconic dishes from across the region. I keep coming back for their translucent dim sums – the Xia Long Bao soup is my favorite and their rock solid iced milo.

7. Dalma:

Probably the best known Odia restaurant in town. Interiors are simple, the focus is almost entirely on food; the restaurant chain (with branches in Odisha) takes its name from the most famous dal in the state. We recommend thalis for first-time visitors; regulars swear by popular signatures like the Bamboo Mutton and Chicken Matihandi. Stay for dessert and feast on keeri (a rice pudding with a hint of bay leaf) or chhena poda.

8. The flying squirrel:

A hipster cafe par excellence; where you’re likely to meet plenty of coffee snobs and the occasional startup entrepreneur or angel investor. The Flying Squirrel combines a traditional coffee roasting experience with the casual appeal of a chic café. You can actually watch the artisan coffee being roasted and enjoy the flavors as you relax in its relaxed interiors. The menu is perfect for a late breakfast or an early lunch.

9. K-OS:

A great place to catch up with friends or have an after work drink with your colleagues, India’s premier darts bar spans 3000 square feet. and offers 10 dart boards – a first in the city. Envisioned as a space that mixes comfort food with social gaming, K-OS offers a wide selection of small plates to share like lemon garlic shrimp skewers.

10. The hole in the coffee wall:

Chicken fajita tacos for breakfast? Why not. What started as a no-frills garage-style store by a couple from Bengaluru over a decade ago has become a popular foodie destination for European-style cuisine and big weekend breakfasts. Their fully loaded waffles are a popular choice, also try the Mash and Goan sausage topped with a fried egg.
