37, 6th Block, 100ft Road, Koramangala, Bangalore 34
Meal for two: Rs 350
With arterial MG Road taken over by the Metro project, yuppie Koramangala has a hip new eatery around every corner, serving everything from gongura maamsam to sushi to oxtail soup. Dalma—its ‘East Indian’ tag is misleading, it focuses on Oriya food—is a bit of a misfit here, its sprawling interiors more reminiscent of a highway Udipi than a haute cuisine outlet. Basic chairs and four-seater tables, ill-trained waitstaff and jumbled-up menus further accentuate the amateurish air.
