This is a place where most people living in Basavanagudi start their day. New Modern hotel or popularly known as NMH is located in VV Puram, Basavanagudi. One thing we liked about this hotel is its Sambar. It is just WOW man. The classic old ambiance of the hotel, local food and the beauty of Basavanagudi is something you cannot afford to miss. New Modern Hotel has Darshini culture and is one of the legendary hotels which is serving Bengaluru for years.
Don’t get surprised to see Waiters in Lungi. This is a place which is emotionally attached to Old Bangalore’s memories. If you want to experience the Old Bangalore lifestyle then NMH is highly recommended.

Crave for Soft Idlis, Ghee Masala Dose, and Darshini special Sambar
Ankur Sille reviews NMH as,
Visited this place on a weekend early morning. It was one of the legendary places where I wanted to try the Dosa. It is among the oldest places in Bangalore. They have a historic ambiance and has been kept the same way. The place is kept clean and is a small place with a not large number of seats. The guys serving are helpful and polite. The service is really quick.
They have two types of masala dosa, one is the special one which is roasted in ghee and the latter is made in normal oil and is less oily. The dosa was roasted to perfection and was crispy. The Dosa’s here are also served with Sambhar unlike most of the other darshinis. Sambar here is not something very amazing but serves its purpose. The idlis are really the best ones I had in Bangalore. The idlis were soft that they were dissolving just after putting them in the mouth. I am not a great fan of coffee but the coffee was also good here.
