Bangalore's Top 5 North Indian restaurants

If chicken tikka, dal makhni, butter naan and gajar ka halwa are what you are pining for, book a table and savour the experience at the best North Indian restaurants in town.

Tandoor has stood the test of time and many a palate. It remains one of the city’s top restaurants and even after all these years retains its fabulous service and quality. Everything on the menu is divine and you will have a hard time choosing. The dal makhni is a must, as is the lassi.

With Copper Chimney, North Indian cuisine is as authentic as it can get. Rich and succulent, the dishes remind us of the open fires in the villages of Punjab and are redolent of a rustic charm. The kebab platter is a must-have; you can even watch it being cooked in the open kitchen. The rooftop ambience and prompt service will truly whet your appetite.

Named after the famous train that was the first to make the journey from Bori Bunder to Thane, Sahib Sindh Sultan takes the dining experience to the next level. British Raj meets Mughal opulence in the décor and certainly the food. Step in and find yourself on a platform or in a train compartment, the two dining areas here. The starters are excellent and the names of main courses on the menu will have you intrigued. The food is fabulous, and so is the experience.

Angeethi needs no introduction to the city’s populace. Its lunch buffet spread is so famous that the queue spills over into the hotel lobby. Situated on the rooftop of The Museum Inn, Angeethi has a dhaba-style air about it. Old filmi posters and quaint roadside signs hand-painted on the walls define the décor. Not to be missed are mutton roghan josh and biriyani.

For an authentic dhaba experience head to Koramangala. Chandini Chowk will have you smitten by its kitschy charm the minute you walk in. Bright sequined dupattas hang from the ceiling alongside clay mudkas. Old posters of heroines add colour to the mud walls and Bollywood hits and remixes make the ambience vibrant. The butter chicken is delectable as is the gajar ka halwa.

So brace yourself for a rich meal and a taste of all that the North has to offer.
