Koshys |

Koshy’s began as a bakery in 1940, when it was set up by Prem Koshy’s grandfather, PO Koshy. In 1952, the restaurant was built on St Mark’s Road, right next to the bakery where it first began. After the death of his grandfather, Prem Koshy’s father and uncle took over the establishment – and upon their deaths in the early 1990s, the third generation took the reins. The non-air conditioned section of the restaurant was called Parade Cafe, the air-conditioned section called the Jewel Box. Along with the original bakery, the entire establishment was referred to as Koshy’s.Through the long line of Koshys, what has remained consistent is the constant popularity of Koshy’s, which has repeatedly featured on the list go Bangalore’s must-visit restaurants. Prime ministers, royalty, artists, politicians of all hues and visitors from all walks have life have at some point of their lives been mesmerized by the restaurant’s timeless charm.
