If the students of MS Ramaiah Institute of Technology ever had to participate in a poll picking the best restaurant they have visited in their 4 years of college life, the unanimous choice would be the mighty Chandrappa Hotel. The restaurant would beat the likes of Truffles, Hammered, Gilly’s Restobar and all the other joints on BEL Road in this process.
To bring it to your notice, this Chandrappa Hotel located in Mathikere is the only existent branch of this restaurant across the city. And it is mighty easy to find your way to this joint. Just get down at the Mathikere/Ramaiah College Bus Stop and make a few steps towards MSRIT. The Chandrappa Hotel will fall on your left and it will be open from 11 am to 11 pm every day of the week except Tuesday.
The Pork Indulgence
Although you would get a few dishes to keep your vegetarian friend engaged, Chandrappa Hotel is primarily a place you must visit if you are a big-time non-vegetarian. However, it is the pork items which are available in this restaurant that has made Chandrappa Hotel what it is today.
Pepper Pork, Chilly Pork, Ginger Pork, and Pork Biryani will fulfill your craving for some good pork and all these items would cost you anywhere between Rs 140-160 per plate.
Not to forget, the Rs 150 worth Chicken Biryani along with Lemon Chicken, Pepper Chicken, Chicken Hyderabadi is also equally enjoyable here.
Take care of your taste buds, leave the rest…
Unlike the other traditional hotels in Bengaluru, Chandrappa Hotel is one hotel where both taste and hygiene are equally taken care of. Nestled in an old building which has recently undergone a makeover, Chandrappa Hotel will give you the experience of having food in an old military hotel.
The furniture is old and although the place seems to be crowded all day, a breath of fresh air and a cool breeze is always on offer here. However, it is unlikely that you would get a table as soon as you enter the restaurant and that might irritate you at times.
A special mention needs to be given to the quality of service in the Chandrappa Hotel. There are two waiters who will look after your needs in the restaurant and they are always ready to be at your help along with a few valuable suggestions on the food. The service is pretty quick and efficient.
The place is maintained well and will not make you worry about hygiene.
Apart from the cleanliness and service, the Chandrappa Hotel is one of the most popular places in Bangalore for the pork items it serves. It is hard to find hotels which offer good pork and this restaurant is one place where this aspect has been given full marks.
There are close to 15 varieties of food under the Pork column and each of them will definitely leave a mark on you. Although they might seem a little over-priced, for the quality and quantity of food that arrives, you would be willing to pay a few bucks extra for the product.
Chandrappa Hotel is impressive with the chapatis, ragi-balls, and biryani-rice which are all of the highest quality. The complimentary rasam which is served at the end of your meal is also something which cannot be missed.
