Dhabas in Bangalore you can try
This is an authentic highway Punjabi Dhaba where you can enjoy the best of Punjabi meal in Bengaluru with full taste and style. If you are going with your family then this is good as there is no supply of drinks and ambiance is also neat and descent. We had tried Paneer paratha and Onion paratha which was too good. It is pretty hygienic and gives you a true Dhaba experience.
Where: College road, Mathikere, near Yeshwanthpur Tollgate.
Guru greens is a restaurant and Dhaaba located at the NICE road junction that leads on to Mysore. So, if you are going to Mysore through NICE road then this is the food hub for you. It has a well maintained state-of-the-art restroom with a huge play area for kids which makes it a perfect place for a family visit which is very rare on highways. One thing that you love about this place is its ambiance filled with rich green. Coming to food, Guru greens have a very good impression on the taste of Pepper chicken dry, lemon chicken, Dal Fry, and Ghee rice.
Where: Gottigere, Bannerghatta Road, Bangalore
Open: 11 AM to 11 PM
Gyani Da Punjab
If you are a North Indian and missing your kind of food then Gyani Da Punjab can be a great companion for satisfying your appetite for Punjabi and North Indian Khaana. The food here reminds you of your native and the ambiance also is Desi and Punjabi. It is not a typical highway side Dhaba but the feel is equivalent to it. Gyani Da Punjab’s Dal Makhani, Egg Parathas, and the Butter chicken will make you drool for more. We don’t guarantee on other cuisines served here.
Also try: Paneer Paratha, Chicken Kohlapuri, Punjabi Chicken, and Sweet Lassi
Where: 1st Floor, CitiBank ATM Building, 100 Feet Road, 20th Main, 2nd Stage, BTM Layout.
Open: 11 AM to 3:30 PM, 7 PM to 11 PM.
Bobby’s Punjabi Dhaba
This is quite a popular and known place for people living in and around Ulsoor, Indiranagar, and Trinity. This Punjabi dhaba is just a mile away from the famous Ulsoor Gurudwara serving the best North Indian food in the city. Unfortunately, this is not a place for Non-Vegetarians and so you have to conform to their amazing Rajma Chawal, Parathas, and a Thaali. Pretty crowded one and if you get a table without having to wait then it might be your lucky day.
Open: 12:30 PM to 3:45 PM and 7:30 to 11:00 PM
Thirumala Green Palace
This is a hot-favourite for travelers on the Mysore road and as the name says, it looks like a palace of the British period. So, after you take the Kengeri bridge and enter the town then you will find this place awed with brick cottages that remind you of paintings of the medieval age. You can try their chicken kebab, Dal Palak, Rotis, and if you love Andhra meals then you will find a lot of things on the menu. Hyderabadi chicken is a must try. Better don’t try to appease yourself with their north Indian menu.
Open: 11 AM to 11 PM
Sanjay Punjabi Dhaba
This is one of the oldest Dhabas of Bangalore say 30 years and is located on the Airport road. It is a typical highway side Dhaba which is close to Hebbal and the highway is also called Bangalore-Hyderabad highway or the Bellary road. The place is clean and you have the traditional Cot system that will quickly get you to the mood of highway dhabas. You can try their Palak Paneer, Aloo Paratha, Raita, and Rotis for a full good meal. Indeed the best Desi Dhaba we have in Bengaluru.
Where: Kodigehalli Gate, Byatrayanapura, Sahakara Nagar, Bangalore
Open: 11 AM to 11 PM
Ninth Mile Dhaba
So, now we have something for bachelors. Yes, Ninth Mile serves alcohol with a dine-in facility (confirm before you go). Their non-veg tastes great. You can choose a table in an air-conditioned room or an outdoor seating for fresh and green lush.
Where: Royal Orchid Resort, Bellary Road, Yelahanka New Town, Yelahanka, Bangalore
Open: 12:30 PM to 3:30 PM, 7 PM to 11 PM
Dhabas on Pune Highway
Pune highway has a row of Dhabas and you can find one before gundenahalli and as we remember there is a Sardarji Dhaba which serves amazing Chapathi, Dal, and Egg items.
Chulha Chauki Da Dhaba
This place is filled with all vibes you get to see in an authentic North-Indian Dhabas on highways. With Bamboo partitions, charapis, and cane stools kind of things, this is a perfect place to get that Dhaba feeling. Kebabs and Tandoor items taste great here. And, yes Lassi is a Must-have.
Where: Masand Square, Near RM Supermarket, Hennur Main Road, HRBR Layout, Kalyan Nagar, Bengaluru.
Manjith Da Dhaba
Do you miss Butter Paranthas living in Bengaluru? If so then you should come here. This wheeler road Dhaba is largely known for its butter paranthas with flavors like mooli, paneer, and aloo. Another specialty of Manjith Da Dhaba is their hand-made Gulan Jamuns; it is awesome. Price wise, it is quite reasonable and the taste wise, it is a great option to check out for.
Where: Wheeler Road flyover, Pulakeshi Nagar, Bengaluru.
Baba Da Dhaba
This is not a Dhaba but a Dhaba kind of restaurant in Koramangala. When you are here, you got to try Bhatti Da Murgh and Paneer Tikka. Also, you can vouch for Amritsari meal which includes Panner Makhanwala and Butter Chicken.
Where: 65,1st Main, 7th Block, Koramangala, Bengaluru
