Copper Chimney review: This Yelahanka restaurant is bang for every buck! [5/5]

A city like Bengaluru does not have a dearth of biryani and Mughlai-cuisine eateries, but it takes something special for restaurants like Copper Chimney to stand apart. Copper Chimney has branches elsewhere in the city as well, but the one nearest to me was in Yelahanka. However, I don’t regret the 20-km to-and-from drive in peak evening traffic to get...

Drink & Dine review: This watering hole is a welcome addition to RR Nagar! [4/5]

Covid-19 has ravaged the hospitality industry across India. However, a few establishments have braved it and opened up. Not just for themselves but for a people starved for a good outing after nearly a year indoors. Drink & Dine at Rajarajeshwari Nagar (RR Nagar) in Bengaluru, is one such establishment.

Some restaurants have the reputation of their food quality varying wildly from one outlet to another. Others will insist on all the ingredients, condiments and sometimes even semi-cooked food coming from the same place so the taste is uniform. Chulha Chauki Da Dhaba (CCDD) — as far as I know — does neither of these, and yet manages to maintain...

Machali Restaurant Review: This Mangalore eatery is a must-visit for seafood fans! [5/5]

Visit Mangalore, and the foodies around you will drown you in “seafood” shouts beforehand. And for good reason! The fish is fresh from the sea next door, and the cuisine itself stands apart! And rarely does it get as good representation on the plate than in Machili Restaurant. The Ambience Machili, at first sight, may look like any other restaurant...

Maharaja Restaurant Review: This Mangalore eatery is a bit of a letdown [3.5/5]

Do a quick Google search on “best chicken ghee roast in Mangalore,” and one of the first restaurants you encounter is Maharaja. That alone should send your expectations soaring. The ambience Then, things start going downhill. And that happens from the moment you sit down. It starts with the décor, which appears pleasing and old-school at first. But the moment...
