The fascinating city of Mysore is famous in the region for a number of things – high-quality sandalwood, exquisite silk, natural incense and last but not least, mouth-watering food.
We spent 3 magical days in the city and as always, one of our goals was to find the best of the best of food in town.
So let’s get to it. Here are our top 5 vegetarian restaurants in Mysore.
5 Unmissable Vegetarian Restaurants in Mysore
If you’re thinking of going vegetarian or vegan there is no better place to start than in India.
It is so easy to be a vegetarian in this diverse country, and the city of Mysore is bursting at the seams with incredible vegetarian restaurants. Here are our top picks of the bunch:
1. Hotel RRR
For the best South Indian food in the city, you cannot miss this local favourite.
All meals are served traditionally on a banana leaf and if you really want to fit in with the locals, should be eaten with your fingers. It’s a messy affair but you do get used to it.
RRR mainly cater for meat eaters, however there is a delicious vegetarian option which we absolutely loved. So much so we didn’t stop talking about it for days afterwards!
The food is pretty spicy, so order lots of water and let the flavours of south India seduce your taste buds.
- Opening hours – Daily 11.30am – 4.30pm for lunch (most popular) and 7pm-11pm for dinner
- Price – 350 INR for 2 people with drinks
- Map Location
Located just outside of the city in the district of Mohalla, this charming little restaurant delivers some of the tastiest food we’ve had throughout our travels.
Offering a delicious menu of both local & Chinese food, they claim that their secret ingredient is LOVE – and we are suckers for love.
Although the food was slightly more expensive than other restaurants in the area, there is no doubt that it is worth it.
We devoured a huge meal of Vegetable Kofta Curry, 2 Rotis and a portion of Vegetable noodles, and not 1 bite was left at the end of it.
It was one of those meals you reminisce on for days afterwards, so don’t miss it!
- Opening hours – Daily 11am – 11pm
- How much – 750 INR for 2 people with drinks
- Map Location – Unfortunately Pakva is permanently closed
3. Depth N Green
Catering for both vegetarians & vegans, Depth N Green have really nailed this charming little cafe with its tantalising menu.
Located in the district of Mohalla, it’s a little outside of the city centre, therefore appealing to the yogi crowd who are living or staying in the nearby shalas.
The food menu is a mix of local food or western dishes with a local twist, and the coffee shop menu is unrivalled among others in the area.
We thoroughly enjoyed the homemade veggie burger, and due to a power cut, we ate by candlelight, making the experience all the more enjoyable.
- Opening hours – Daily 8.30 am-9 pm. CLOSED MONDAYS.
- How much – 400-500 INR with drinks

4. Om Shanthi
Conveniently located in the city centre, Om Shanthi is a locals favourite when it comes to vegetarian food.
The menu is extensive, reasonably priced and we thoroughly enjoyed a fresh meal of mushroom curry and a mixed veg jalfrezi with butter naan.
It’s worth noting that the restaurant is located within a hotel, and you need to walk through another restaurant in order to get to it.
Slightly confusing but we got there in the end.
- Opening hours – Daily 7.30am-10pm
- Price – 500INR for 2 people with drinks

5. Hotel Mylari
Anybody who has been to Mysore will recommend that you try the Mylari Dosa, and it is not without reason.
The delicious hot & crispy dosa has been a famous local delicacy for almost a century, and Hotel Mylari is where it all began.
The Mylari Dosa isn’t too much different to a regular Dosa, however here it has some secret local ingredients which make it all the more special.
Served with a knob of butter and a side of coconut chutney, I guarantee you won’t be able to stop at 1!
- Opening hours – Daily 6.30am-1pm for lunch – 3pm-9pm for dinner. Closed on Wednesday.
- Price – 40INR per dosa.
