Bangaloreans always boast that there isn’t a single cuisine worth eating that cannot be found in their city and at a time when Maharashtra and Haryana are grappling with a beef ban, the Garden City is tucking into its juicy burger and hefty steaks with renewed enthusiasm. There are different ways of preparing steak and everyone likes theirs cooked in a particular way, so we’ve picked out the 6 best steakhouses in Bangalore for you to meat (pun intended) at!
This is one of Bangalore’s vintage restaurants for excellent European fare, but they are famous for their typical Beef steaks that any American or Londoner would expect from a proper steakhouse. The best thing about this quaintly decked out place is that it serves up all kinds of steaks. The Boston Special (Rs 460) is the American steak, Chateaubriand Supreme (Rs 500) is the typical French steak that is slightly on the raw side, Weiner Schnitzel (Rs 340) is the whooper German steak and the Vienna Steak (Rs 370) obviously hails from windy Austrian lands.

If you don’t have too much cash in your pocket but still have a giant appetite for steaks, then Connies is the place to be. Their steaks are more than generous and cooked with expertise. Most patrons swear by the quality of meat in this modest spot. Among the tenderloin steak, The Bone Steak (Rs 500) enjoys immense popularity and is probably the heftiest hitter around – it would take two people with medium appetites to devour these

Airy, bright and luminous – the ambience and rustic decor of this restaurant is well complimented by the transparent rooftop that adds to the illusion of space. And the name that has the term steak house in it leaves no room for imagination when it comes to the cuisine it caters to. Start with Baby Lamb Chops (Rs 350) that is one of their specialities. If you like the smoked flavour of well-done steaks, then go for Ancho Chicken (Rs 445). Another spicy option is the Ghost Chilli Chicken (Rs 445) prepared with bhoot jolokia chilli sauce. The Fillet Mignon (Rs 500) is for those with a lower tolerance for spices and is done just right.

Harking back to the memories of the Woodstock generation, this cafe is housed in what used to be a pretty duplex villa at one time. Because of that, there’s cosy seating with private spots for couples by the window. The kitchen’s Bacon Wrap Beef Steak (Rs 480) is one of their signature specialities. They also serve a range of pork steaks and their Barbecued Pork Ribs (Rs 440) is one of the best among them. In case you visit with a meat eater but are a fish lover yourself, go for the Grilled Salmon (Rs 650) that is one of their delicacies.

898 Steaks & Grills packs a punch with affordability and indulgence in a single nugget. Their rooftop is ideal for dining on windy evenings or lazy afternoons. They have some of the best beef starters here and the BBQ Beef (Rs 230) is certainly something we would recommend. The menu has limited steak options but patrons swear by the Chicken and Mushroom Steak (Rs 320) that is everyone’s favourite. The T-Bone Steak (Rs 415) is for those with above-average appetite.

At first glance, Miller’s 46 might look like a meat lover’s haven and that is indeed true, except they also have enough to keep vegetarians happy. The classic touch of old dark wood interiors hasn’t faded with age and neither has the food. The Mushroom Caps (Rs 196) and 46’s Chicken Wings (Rs 191) are literally world famous in Bangalore, but the steaks are what got them to this list. Of their signature ‘Big Boy’ steaks, the Twice Marinated Steak (Rs 459) comes with two sauces and the Southern Green House Steak (Rs 491) is rubbed with spinach and mint. But the most experimental steak on the menu is the Coffee Rubbed Steak (Rs 478) that is marinated with fresh Guatemala coffee and served with chimichurri herbs.
