Reviewed yesterday NEW

At the outset, I am not reviewing the food, which is just a part, but the whole atmosphere. The whole place, waiting staff included, is steeped in a different time zone, which some might fight anachronistic, but which I personally love. Waiters are not obsequious or cloyingly sweet but efficient; they know how to be precise and not disturb the... More

Koshy's is legendary and a must-visit place in Bangalore. The food has a home-cooked feel to it. The waiters are very nice. The ambience is super chilled out and relaxed. You get a good mix of continental and local Indian food plus seasonal specialties at Christmas time.

Places like Koshy's are institutions. The coffee home style ambience with high ceilings, fans, wooden pillars, tables and chairs. There is buzz in the air but one can easily slip into a private cocoon of their own, enjoying palatable delights. We went with friends for a Sunday brunch and ordered chicken sandwiches, French toast, cutlets, grilled sandwiches, stuffed omelette, cold... More

Koshys is more known for its sentimental value. The old decor , the furniture ,the servers etc are all natural and have grown old with the restaurant unlike other psuedo antique( for want of a better word) restaurants. The menu at Koshys also is the old menu of days bygone with some additions. This used to be a place where... More

I came here hoping to get a bite of the appams, but was told it is available only on Sundays. Nevertheless I liked the feel of the place and food was good. Our server was pleasant. Ordered some curries with tandoori roti and special naan. The special naan was a bit too sweet did not like that but otherwise all... More

Came in for a couple of drinks. There are 2 parts - the more old fashioned basic cafe style restaurant / bar on the left, and a smarter restaurant on the right. We were in the cafe bit. A Bangalore classic that looks as if it hasn't changed for 60 years, and probably hasn't. No a/c, just ceiling fans, and... More

Went for dinner recently with family. This place brings back a lot of pleasant memories. It has not changed over the years, simple place with good food. We tried Clear Chicken Soup, Chicken Steak, Mutton Cutlets, and Fish Cutlets. The Mutton cutlets were good and the fish cutlets too. Thank God they don't use Basa fish. All in all a... More

Went there for lunch, we had huge expectations but sadly the food was disappointing. I ordered a mutton roast , it lacked flavour and was passable. Another roasted chicken dish was also below average. Enjoyed curd rice more than the non veg items. Will not return ever.
