Hotel Fishland Gandhinagar Bengaluru

Since the 1980s, Hotel Fishland in Gandhinagar is renowned for serving spicy, delicious, fresh seafood dishes based on Konkan and coastal Mangalore cuisine.

The basic interiors and average service is compensated by the lip smacking seafood served in the form of thali (plate meals), fried fish (choose between rava-fried, masala), variety of fish/crab/prawn based gravy (semi-gravy) and biryani (fish/prawn/chicken).

What to eat:

  • Limited Special Seafood Thali
    [while ordering:
    1) Specify the type of rice (white rice or boiled rice)
    2) Specify the fried fish – Bangda/Bangude {Mackerel} or Kane {lady fish} or Surma {seer fish/king fish}
            Tip: Choose ‘Surma’ if you don’t like fish with too many bones]
  • Crab Chili (taste is worth the patience and effort)
  • Biryani (the biryani isn’t spicy, but slightly sweet – but delicious)
  • Chili chicken (the spiciest chili chicken in Bengaluru)
  • Sip on: fresh lime soda, buttermilk (helps cool the spice)

  • For the chicken lovers: despite being a seafood place, the Chicken Curry with Kori Rotti, Neer Dose with Chicken Ghee Roast and chicken biryani are very delicious
  • Ask for hot water to drink – they will happily oblige 🙂
  • For the sweet tooth: they serve basic flavors of ice-cream, but I highly recommend visiting Mantap Ice cream parlor for delicious scoops of ice-creams, sundaes and bars
