  • Distance from Bangalore – 58kms
  • Highway – NH7 (after Bengaluru Airport)
  • Location – Google Maps Link
  • Timings – 7 am to 11 am
  • Parking- no specific/allotted parking (but there is always place to park)
  • The menu keeps changing (as and when they get over)

2) Shashi Hotel, Nittur

A family-run place/house serving delicious food for about 100 years and the hospitality is unlike anything I have seen 🙂 There is no signboard, but ask anyone in Nittur town for Shashi’s hotel and they point you to his house.
