How to ace date night in Bangalore on a budget

2 min read

We all put our best foot forward during the first few months of our relationships. We wear the best clothes and make sure we look Snapchat-ready at all times. Forgetting the mandatory “Good morning Sunshine! :)” and “Goodnight. :*” texts seem like a good enough reason for a discord between lovers. Cut to five months later. You are suddenly busy with your studies or a new job that you don’t get enough time to spend with your significant other. You are past all the formalities of constantly trying to impress each other and don’t even care if you see each other in pyjamas. But once in a while, the lovebirds need to be set free from their tiny PG/hostel rooms and set free to soar with romance. That’s when restaurants in Bangalore come to your aid.

But, many restaurants are unbelievably and exorbitantly priced. Does no one have empathy for people like us who love being in love but cannot afford to be in love? Expensive restaurant dinners look highly impressive at first but are honest, your budget cannot sustain it. Even if you spend lunchtime pecking food from other’s lunch or just say “I am not really hungry today”, it is not enough. So here we are, to your rescue with a list of the budget but romantic places in Bangalore to have that date you need to (Other cities, don’t worry; we’ll come to your help soon).
