Delicious food at Ganesh Darshan

Indian Bloggers


Ganesh Darshan

Ganesh Darshan is a prominent eatery (Darshini) located at the popular Jayanagar 4th Block, Bengaluru. It’s fame stands tall with the likes of Vidyarthi Bhavan, Adigas etc. It is quite popular among the Bengalurians and for many people its customary to visit Ganesh Darshan during every visit to Jayanagar 4th Block.

We visited Ganesh Darshan recently during our visit to Jayanagar 4th block. We reached around noon, so this experience is about lunch.

It is very easy to reach the place. Google shows the proper way. Also, for popular eateries like this, everyone in that area will be able to help guide the way. There is no car parking available outside the eatery. However limited two-wheeler parking is available. But parking is never a problem at Jayanagar. There is ample parking in the whole area including one on the top floor of the bus-stop. The best way to visit Ganesh Darshan is to park the vehicle in a nearby parking spot and then walk to it. It is always a pleasure to walk across Jayanagar.

The eatery is a proper ‘Darshini’ setup. It serves limited menu and guests have to eat while standing. There is no seating area. But people do sit around the adjacent shops and enjoy the food along with the shade and hustle-bustle of Jayanagar shoppers.

Ganesh Darshan has a limited menu but it promises to serve one of the best South Indian (particularly Karnataka) cuisine like – Dosa, Idli, Vada, Akki Roti etc. Filter Coffee is a must have at Ganesh Darshan.


Masala Dosa: Crisp and buttery with the perfect golden brown crust. A dollop of delicious potato saagu inside. I feel that this delicious Masala Dosa can be compared to any other popular Dosa joint at Bengaluru and is better than the majority of the darshinis across Bengaluru.

Idli-Vada Sambar (Dip): Soft and fluffy Idli with perfect deep fried Medu Vada dipped in delicious Udupi Sambar. Definitely a delight on the taste buds.

Akki Roti: Good Akki Roti can usually be had at homes of Kannadigas. Ganesh Darshan surprised me with one of the very delicious Akki Roits that I could mention about. It was apt crisp and served with tangy tomato chutney.

Curd Vada: It was again a delicious crisp Medu Vada soakd in curd of perfect density. The curd was sweet and salty in taste. It was served with crispy boondi.

Benaras Dosa: This was something which we had for the very first time in our life. It is a speciality of Ganesh Darshan and quite an innovation. It is an Uttapa kind of dosa with fried bread crumbs. The bread crumbs are deep fried and spiced.

Filter Coffee (Kaapi): At the end, we packed up with a shot of strong, sweet and hot Filter Coffee. It is highly recommended not to miss Coffee at Ganesh Darshan.
