A cold beer on the patio at the Parklane Hotel is likely the selling point of the restaurant. The food was average but affordable, with the exception of the biriyani which was a disappointment. The bathrooms are on the dirty side - female guests take note!

Only the basic rotis and dals were decent, paneer items and the meats were pretty tough. They have nice chilled beer and on a whim I had a mojito, which was pretty potent :-)

Service is great though

The food was decidedly average at the Parklane Hotel. The Chicken Tandoori was dry and the curries we ordered were not particularly refined. The portion size was okay.

I wouldn't rush back. The service was pretty good and the atmosphere was quite cool, but the very average food combined with it being a bit overpriced for the quality and quantity ruined it for us. We wished we had stayed in our own hotel (Pai Vista) to eat.

Firstly, there is no 'Happy Hour' anymore.
Secondly, it's a typical restaurant that's been mentioned in LP.....living on it's past.

We were a birthday party of six people.

2 had mutton that was totally inedible which, eventually, we were not charged for as they couldn't chew it.
1 had chicken roast plate which was smothered in a tomato sauce that could have come from a ketchup bottle.
1 had chicken hyderabadi which was nothing like it should have been.

2 people had Methi kebab and they were happy.

All told, very poor food, lethargic service and typical of a place in Lonely Planet and on the tourist trail.

It has a nice ambience and was pretty much full of western tourists.

We stayed in Mysore for 6 nights but never went back and instead went to Hotel New Shilpashri Bar and Restaurant for most of our meals - much better food and more attentive staff.

After walking into a couple of recommended restaurants which were completely deserted and lifeless we opted for Parklane and had a table overlooking the hotel lobby. Before long the restaurant was packed and the smiles around the room created a great atmosphere which was further enhanced by very enjoyable live traditional music.

Superb service worthy of a tip, although the staff could do with a bit more bar education as they seemed clueless as the makeup of a gin and tonic, brining all ingredients out on separate trays made it a more clumsy process than it ought to be. The band lingering around for a tip, and then bigger tip was annoying, perhaps the restaurant should shout this?!

Chicken dishes were delightful as were the veg and tandoor breads! Happy to recommend!
