This place is one of my favorites. For Rs150 you can have the "full meal" and get a multi-course south-Indian dinner on a banana leaf. The place is super popular, always busy. It's not fancy, but still feels 'new' and welcoming. Great sweet shop at the front entrance, too. My only complaint is that it feels like the upstairs dinner area has been downgraded since my last visit two years ago. There used to be a full menu, and table service; now you walk up to the central desk, order a few things, and sit until the food is delivered.

Upma, Kharabath were not as tasty as in some other places like Veena stores. Dosa was served cold. The ambience is good. It is not a place one would look forward to coming again.

Halli Mane is in Malleswaram area where most kannadigas reside so no wonder there are more local customers. I have been to this restaurant a couple of times for lunch. It has a typical south indian village ambience to match with its name - Village House.

On the ground floor there is self service while on 1st floor there is only one option of south indian thaali during lunch hours. The food is served on a plantain leaf & items are served one by one. The thaali includes a rare but wonderful combination of both north indian and south indian items - roti, 3 types of curries, akki rotti, pulao, rice, rasam etc. Except the sweet & ice cream, all items are unlimited. Unlike the 'saaunf' served at the end of meal in other restaurants, you will find betel leaves.

After shopping at Mantri mall, if you crave for a heavy lunch, then you should head to Halli Mane......this is exactly what I do ;-)

Pure vegetarian, ethnic food. Once you eat will get addicted. Very old good plantain meals, for tiffin assorted dosas, Roti. Mouth watering sweets. Beverages also. It is better to taste and relish.

Enjoy the Karnataka food. Visit without fail, when you are in Bengaluru.

Good for South indian dishes. Overcrowded though. We went for seating first but they told us that they serve only meals at the seating, not sure if this was just for today or its the case daily. We then decided to try out the self servicer counters, after a little hustle bustle with fellow guests, i managed to get our food. Dosa's and Akki roti's would definitely be rated higher. North indian dishes are alright not so great. Worth a try but be prepared to stand and eat among the crowd.
