Just for dinner, you can drive to this place. A2b Bangalore-Mysore Highway on Google maps. We once drove on a rainy evening to here along the nice road. A2B is a good place to go with family as well. There are two areas there. In one, you do not get service and another one is the serviced area.

I would recommend this restaurant for the south-Indian taste. This restaurant is after Bidadi. There is also another A2B on the Bangalore-Mysore Highway after the town of Madduru.

I would personally recommend this place if you are a big fan of authentic local food. They have really yummy authentic Kannada food like Mudu idli with Sambar, amazing tea, and coffee, buffet breakfast, Jowar roti, Raagi balls, Akki roti, Kesaribath etc. However, you might get disappointed at weekends because of the crowd.

Right-O on Bangalore Mysore highway

Right-O is basically a food joint with different food shops under one roof like Biryanistan, Subway, Marhaba, Shanghai times, up south, CCD, Polar bear, Pizza corner etc.

So, I would recommend this place if you are traveling with a crowd and everyone wants to have their own meal. Looking at the shops’ name above, you can easily figure out that they serve different foods like pizza, Biryani, South Indian dishes, Nonveg, Chinese, fast food, ice creams and much more.

There is no AC here though but they have enough sitting space. Veg by nature and Up-South have really good reviews on the internet. Right-O on Google Maps.
