To get to the Mango Tree restaurant, you have to take the road that goes to the zone where it crosses the river from Hampi to the other side and follow the path on foot for about 10 - 15 minutes through banana plantations. In the middle of this landscape is a very special restaurant: The Mango Tree (named after the huge mango tree that is in the restaurant, from which hangs a swing that everyone tries). Their tables are stationed in an amphitheater, with the landscape character; you eat sitting on straw mats on the floor facing the river. As usual in India, the price is fair and something that is not so common in India is that people care about hygiene and treatment (as in almost Everywhere I have visited), but here it is very nice. We had typical South Indian dishes prepared with lots of flavor (although there were Tibetan dishes, dishes of the north) served on palm leaves that abound in the area. You have to try the lassi (yogurt shakes blended with fruit) or coffee smoothies. It was a very special place to spend the afternoon with friends, with a book, with the couple, come on, with whoever you want.
MTR stands for Mavalli Tiffin Room. This restaurant near Lallbagh Park is one of the oldest in Bangalore. On our second day we went to visit Bangalore Lallbagh Park, which is an absolute oasis of peace and tranquility in the middle of a noisy city with a lot of traffic. As we got closer to MTR restaurant we decided to eat there. The access door to the restaurant was closed, but we saw people going into a back alley. We decided to go over there, and so we walked through the kitchen and came to a sort of reception area. Nobody there knew English, but after some gesturing it was clear, and they put us at a table with two girls, dressed in their saaris ve spoke some English. They explained the food to us a little bit. It was an unforgettable experience and I recommend this restaurant, it's classic, in Bangalore, and well worth visiting. They're opening another restaurant, in the same house, in another part of the city, which is also very good, but it doesn't have the charm as the one located on Lallbagh Road. I've attached photos of the restaurant and of Lallbagh Park.
On the top floor of the hotel "Pai Vista" Mysore there is a restaurant called The Jungle. The hotel's decor simulates a dense forest, with wooden tables imitating trunks, there's even a tiger and a snake next to a tree, all simulated. The food is budget-style and is good variety. There were some meat dishes, mostly chicken. It's a curious and pleasant spot, at least it is fresh and "shadow". It's A good place to eat if you are visiting Mysore. The most important monument and which has the greatest number of visits is the Palace where he lived the Raja. It is advisable to arrive early, walk around the outside of the palace and get to one of the queues to get tickets. However, at the queue, many people try to sneak in, so beware. Tickets are two prices, one for the natives and another for foreigners. You have to leave your shoes at the front before you enter, then an employee gives you your shoes, and in the end you can give them a few rupees. The visit is done barefoot, so I suggest bringing socks, and then bringing new ones to wear when you leave.
This fantastic almost hidden restaurant, tucked away on Church Street in one of the galleries, is the best place to enjoy North Indian food in the technology capital of the south. A visit your taste buds will thank you for.
Weekend gigs, better go with reservations as the place tends to be crowded. in a small lane behind sjr tech park in Whitefield. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable place to dine with excellent micro brewed beer!
