As long as we live and breathe (and eat), Bangalore will never run out of incredible places to dine. But have you ever tried the older, more iconic restaurants in the city? No? Well, you're missing out on a lot. 


But don't worry, we've got you covered. Here are 7 iconic eateries in Bangalore that will blow your mind.

Serving original recipes since 1940, this iconic eatery in Bengaluru is a popular breakfast and lunch destination for the locals. Open till 5, artists prefer this place for peace and quiet while foodies love it for the famous filter coffee, Prawn Biryani and appams. Queen Elizabeth II and Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru visited Koshy's once, too.

Let's not call ourselves true Bangaloreans unless we've gorged on MTRs (that's what kids call it these days) lip-smacking rava idli and masala dosa. It's no surprise that their authentic Kannada preparations are hard to resist. This iconic restaurant is quaint, double-storeyed and packed with foodies.

In a quiet residential area of Bangalore lies an iconic eatery satiating hunger pangs since 1964. The menu is limited to idli, vada, Khara and Kesari Bath, and filter coffee. But the real attraction is their coconut chutney. TBH, it's so amazing that people from different corners of the city frequent Brahmin's Coffee Bar for it.

Established by Late Haroon Sait in 1965, this iconic eatery is popular for their quintessential American delicacies like burgers, steaks, and barbeque wings, among other comfort yummies like spaghetti, sandwiches, pies and cakes. It is "The Only Place" in Bangalore where you can relish juicy steaks.

One of the most celebrated lunch spots in Bengaluru is also an iconic restaurant we can't get over. Even after 57 years, patrons have been obsessing over their authentic South Indian meals, impeccable hygiene standards, quick service, and affordable prices.

This is your sign to savour the best biryani (Natty Chicken Biryani) in Bangalore. Spicing up the streets since 1939, this iconic establishment is bustling with hardcore non-vegetarians all day. Their menu is modest, preparations are exquisite, and you gotta love the quantity of chicken in their dishes.

79 years and Vidhyarthi Bhavan is still one of the most iconic restaurants in Bangalore. Mostly known for their variety of dosas, the eatery served many celebrities (they even have a wall of fame) without phoning in the decor. The establishment is appreciated for its genuine preparations and affordable prices. A must-visit in Bengaluru. 


New to the city or living here for generations, these iconic eateries in Bangalore will show you a good time.
