Restaurants and retail players see airports as captive markets. Depending on the city and country, requirements may vary from one venue to another. Due to security reasons and many other factors, supply to restaurants and other retail stores in airports is limited. This makes food in these restaurants expensive, and customers' expectations are high as they are expected to dish out more for less. Few restaurants survive such discerning odds. Some of them at Bengaluru's Kempegowda International Airport are:  

Here's a list of best restaurant in Bengaluru's airport:

Jones The Grocer  

On our way back from the airport, we decided to get some groceries and save time. This place got us all excited as, upon giving the shelves a cursory glance, we realized that all these hard-to-find gourmet groceries were here. We decided to get something to eat after doing some grocery shopping because the bland and dry food on our flight had really turned us off. We ordered a Carrot Cake and a Cottage Cheese Baguette. Excellent taste and texture. Wash them both down with Spanish Latté. Jones is one of the best cafés at the airport and well worth your time.

We were in Bangalore to attend a friend's birthday and couldn't shop for any gifts beforehand. So the moment we landed, the hunt began, but we didn't have to wait long as Sakkare/Smoor revealed itself to us at the airport itself. We sampled a cake, and boy, was it good! Got that packed and decided to get something for ourselves to eat as we were hungry. The Mysore Pak was simply amazing, as it melted in our mouths the moment we started eating. The texture was good too. The Khus Sharbat was soothing and smooth.

Barley And Grapes Café   

We happened upon this restaurant at the airport when we were there to drop one of our friends off for an international flight. The well-lit and well-ventilated interiors made our visit very pleasant. The staff were extremely courteous and helpful. We had ordered the Grilled Chicken Breast with Gratin Potato and Lamb Stroganoff With Herbed Rice. In both dishes, the meats were perfectly cooked and would just fall apart when we put them into our mouths. The spices and seasoning were excellent as well. To get the necessary fiber into our systems, we also tried the Broccoli Mornay and weren’t disappointed. Finally, to end the meal on a sweet note, we had the Mango Cheesecake and Chocolate Cheesecake. Delectable and addictive are the right adjectives to describe the desserts. We cannot recommend this place enough.

Bhartiya Jalpan  

If you're waiting for your flight and feeling peckish for chaat or street food, you'll do well to follow our example and head to the Bhartiya Jalpan stall. We ordered the evergreen Chola Bhature and Rajma Masala with Jeera Rice, which were surprisingly good! The spice blend and the right quantity of oil were the highlights. Knowing that we may not return for a while, we had Makki Ki Roti and Sarson Ka Saag as well. The flavors and textures were amazing, and we swore that we'd definitely check out more of their dishes on our next sojourn out of Bengaluru. I mean, the delicious Rabdi Jalebi and Gulab Jamoon certainly warrant a repeat.

La Tapenade Mediterranean Cafe  

It was one of those nights when we decided to head to the airport for a long drive. #JustBangaloreThings. When we got to the airport, our hunger pangs began acting up, and we were in the mood for some Italian food. While exploring the restaurants and cafes on the airport premises, we found La Tapenade Mediterranean Cafe. We ordered a thin-crust pizza topped with simple items like mushrooms, olives, and chicken and loved it. We absolutely needed something to sip on while savoring the pizza, so we had the Peach Ice Tea brought to us, and we relished it heartily. Once our hunger was somewhat satiated and we reverted to our usual selves, we discovered that the menu has some Lebanese offerings as well, like Babaganoush, Hummus, Falafel, Harissa Prawns and many more. Food coma, here we come!

If you find yourself at KIAL and are hit by a sudden craving for Chinese food, look up Noodle. The seating area is common at a few other restaurants but comfortable nonetheless. We ordered some Shanghai Vegetable Spring Rolls and Tofu Chili fry as starters. Perfectly cooked vegetables and tofu with just the right amount of oil piqued our interest. Then we had Thai Red Chicken Curry for the main course with Burmese Vegetable Khow Suey. Finger-lickin'-good is how we'd describe the combination. Will certainly return!

La Alta Vita  

La Alta Vita is a casual dining restaurant located in Kempegowda International Airport known for serving tasty and hygienic food at nominal prices. If you like pasta (who doesn't?!), check out this place with well-lit interiors and a simple menu. We ordered the Tuscan Farmer Salad and were amazed at its freshness and taste. Their Penne Pasta had a great texture, and the pesto was done just right. The Tiramisu was delectable, and we will definitely be visiting again.

Street Food By Punjab Grill  

This restaurant is famous for serving delicious and authentic North Indian cuisine, rolls, and street food. An ideal stop for travelers looking for a quick bite, the restaurant features eco-friendly earthenware to promote sustainability. When we were there tired and hungry after a flight, the Chole Kathi Roll managed to slightly suppress our hunger but had tons of flavor and crispiness to it. In order to end our subsequent meal and avoid cooking at home after a long flight, we decided to order something heavy. The Butter Chicken and Dal Makhani with Jeera Rice were satisfying and tasty experiences. Finally, no Punjabi meal ends without a dessert, so we ordered the Gulab Jamun and ate it slowly so as to savor its taste.

Tiffin Centre 

Some good old Idli and Vada can lift anyone's spirits. We decided to have Upma and Kesari Baath, a filling and delicious combo at Tiffin Centre. We also sampled the Thali mela they offered and felt quite satisfied after having it. The parotta, rice, six different vegetables, curd and sweet seviyan seem to have done their jobs very well in the thali. Since we’re meat fiends, we had to try the Malabar Parotta with mutton, and we were pleasantly surprised. Soft parotta with perfectly cooked mutton was a killer combination. The quantities seem right, and the prices were reasonable too.

Kebab And Kurry Nation  

Known for serving delicious North Indian cuisine and kebabs, this place is also open 24 hours a day for the convenience of travelers. We went on a friend’s recommendation and do not regret the decision to take the advice seriously. We started out with Kali Mirch Soup and Cream of Tomato Soup. Warm and spicy, they set the mood for the food to come. We then tried the Fish Fingers and Tandoori Gobi for starters. We went with Dal Tadka and Saag Chicken with Rumali Roti and Butter Naan. Absolutely no complaints here whatsoever. We came away satisfied with a good impression of the place and will certainly recommend it to everyone.
