Chat Bandi in Jayanagar, Bengaluru is surely the place to be during your evenings for a nice cup of chai and some hot chaats. The place can be crowded and you may have to wait a few extra minutes to get your plate but the wait is totally worth it. They have a wide variety of dishes to offer and each of them are tasty and delicious. We had the following while we were at Chat Bandi.
The Masala Puri was delicious with the right amount of spices, crushed puri, and chopped veggies. The curry was fresh and hot, the service was fast as well. It is best had when served hot.
One of the most refreshing drinks I have had in recent times was the Badam Milk at Chat Bandi. It is a shake version that is served cold and I must say they surely have nailed this drink to perfection. You can have this everyday in summer for sure.
Paneer Corn Garlic Bread has to be the highlight of our visit to Chat Bandi. Peri peri masala has been used along with chilli powder for the paneer and corn. The cheese makes it all the more tastier, while the bread that is used is fresh. You must have this dish when you do visit Chat Bandi.
We ended our evening with the Tandoori Chai. The chai was strong, rich in milk, and the sugar content was spot on as well. The chai cooled off a lot faster than expected so it is best to have it once you are done eating everything else.
Parking for a four wheeler might be difficult at times, you probably have to park it further down the road and walk up to Chat Bandi. Their service is fast even though they are crowded, you can find them at 541, 38 Cross, 5 Block 10, Main Road, Jayanagar, Bangalore.
