One of the best north Indian restaurants in Koramangala, Grameen, offers vegetarian thalis at just Rs 70. The restaurant has a rustic look, the low cane chairs and tables add to the countryside environment. The food here is homely and extremely tasty. Jain food is offered too.
Here again, the menu is conventional and there is nothing new about the items; but the hospitality, ambience and authentic taste make a difference. They have discounts if you opt for take-away on weekends. Aam panna – a mango drink – is unbelievably tasty; the lassi is good too.
