Bangaloreans are about two things in summer: shedding layers to reveal some skin and blowing our tax refund on the best and most legit new restaurants in town. And with the end of mandates like mask protocols and proof of vaccination to enter (FYI, rules and regulations differ for each establishment, so be sure to double-check), there’s no better time to hold off on auditing our finances and treating ourselves to great food instead.

 

In addition to our celebrated favourites like The Rogue Elephant and Toast And Tonic, new entries continue to maintain Bangalore’s standing as one of the best dining destinations. From Kormangala to JP Nagar, no matter your price point or preferred ambience or cuisine, there’s an option for everyone in this list.

 

Here are the 20 best restaurants in Bangalore to eat at.
