Airlines has always been a quintessential part of the lives of anyone who has grown up in central Bangalore. Located right in the heart of the city, Airlines serves amazing and affordable South Indian cuisine and is surrounded by smaller shacks that serve Pizza, Ice Cream, and Juices.

I love this place on a sunday morning breakfast. The place has not changed much at all for over two decades. The masala dosa was yummy and the puris were great. There is something so beautiful about open air, eating out under the trees feels great. The place is known for drive in food. You can have your food in... More

Have been visiting this restaurant for many years now. Had breakfast today. They serve to your car. Delicious food. My favorites Channa Batura, Butter Masala Dosa, Vada and top it off with a glass of filter Coffee. Must visit place if you are in St. Marks Road area. Ample paid (Rs. 20) parking space.

The hotel is perhaps catering more to the casual crowd who visit for a tea/ coffee and spend a few hours. The Hotel does not have any cashless payment options and insists on cash payments only. Definitely not a good option for a place like Bengaluru and more so when it's visited mostly by the college groups or the business... More

Food tastes good, slightly overpriced, maybe due to crowd / location advantage. Waiters expect tips and so be sure to leave the right amount to pay your bill-otherwise chase him in kitchen for balance due to you.

How much and for how long can you milk the old Bangalore charm? The Dosa was just ok, service just passable , the waiter just assumed I was going to tip him Rs 60 for a bill of 250 , what a creep, he never returned with the change, I did not want to tip him at all because despite... More

There is way too much hype about this place. We tried the dosa, idli, kesari bath, chole bhature & coffee, the food is slightly above average at best. The service was slow, there was only 1 staff who would take orders and took his sweet time to do so. the bill came to appx 500. My personal experience was that... More

The area around the place is pretty congested & parking is a mess. You will have a paid parking (Rs 20 /Hr) but every now & then the parking boy would come inside the restaurant & ask you to shift your vehicle. Indeed a royal feeling to find BMW, Mercs parked in the parking lot, but that would vanish in... More

One of the places to relive the old world charm of Bengaluru. The restaurant offers great Paper Masala / Plain Dosas, Upma, Coffee among others which you can have in a leisurely pace. I noticed many changes now with waiters hurrying up and service being made much faster as if they want you to get out of the place quickly.... More

Visited this drive-in and garden restaurant after about two decades. This place would have been well kept if the owners felt so taking into consideration the location. Didn't see any change in the furniture or the surroundings. Really felt bad
