6. Persian Terrace
A little off the grid from the centre of the town, but this place is worth driving to. As the name suggests, the rooftop restaurant has a Persian theme, complete with intricate lanterns and glittery drapes. While you chat over a hookah, the Lebanese classics like kibbeh, hummus, falafel and kabobs are sure to please the taste buds.
Where: Sheraton Grand Bangalore Hotel at Brigade Gateway, Rajajinagar, Malleshwaram, Bangalore
7. Portland Steakhouse and Café
Don’t let the name mislead you, making you believe that it will be a loud and noisy grub pub. On the contrary, it is a gorgeous restaurant with a prominent white colour palette that lends to its charm. And the dreamy lighting at night makes it the perfect spot for a romantic dinner date. The menu of course offers excellent steaks, but if you are in the mood for variety, there’s plenty of delightful Italian, Continental and American dishes to choose from. Even burgers!
