Well, it�s the old demand vs supply thing isn�t it? It rains through the year in the UK (and Ireland) and they absolutely hate it, where as it hardly rains in India (couple of months, 4 months in Kerala) and they can�t get enough of it!
Brits hate their weather (and traffic & cost of living etc) so much that 10,000 of them are relocating to Australia every single year (heard that in �Get A New Life� in telly last night)!

Hotel Abhiruchi on Sinhagad road was used to be my favourate.How is that hotel now?Try Chicken Masala/Chicken Biryani at Lucky or Goodluck in Deccan.Those new restaurants on FC Road except Rupali are all s***.Also try Dorabji(old one) in camp.Kolhapuri Misal House near Laxmi theare is best one to try when its raining.

Bangalore don't have these kind of restaurants.All I can see are Shanti Sagars /Shiv Sagars at each corner catering Idlis,Chocho(not Pradeep) Bhat etc.Quality of chicken is not really good.Hotel owners here don't understand the difference between Chicken Fried Rice,Chicken Pulav and Chicken Biryani.

hmm .. have you tried Kabab Corner/Mahal in Kormangla/Jayanagar ... you will get good chicken ..
for Pulav and Biryani, I will suggest Treat at 80ft Indira Nagar, but recenty I heard that their cook has changed and now it does not have that great taste.. but still you can try. OR you can try Atria if your purse permits (food is awesome).

Hm...I am planning to start a Restaurant in bangalore which serves indian, American, Chinese, French, Italian cuisine. I am seriously looking for partnes who know the difference between chicken fried rice, chicken pulav and chicken birayani. Others are also welcome.

Chicken birayani is different from chicken pulav and chicken fried rice.

There is not much difference between chicken pulav and chicken fried rice.
It depends on the cook.
Some make chicken fried same way as chciekn pulav . Some add soy sauce and chilli sauce.

Throw some weiners in and you have ONE dish that goes a loooong way.
i.e. Every nationality you mentioned will recognise some part.
Oh the French will have some escargot et de beurre d�ail.

Try Fish and chips served in newspapers ( I guess you'll have the original ink-staining ones) though you may have trouble getting white fleshy fish. How's Bombay duck like - lots of bones ?
Cornish pasty or Cheese pasty
Steak and ale pie
served up with a cold Guiness.
How about an English Samosa with a casing a fortress would be proud of.

Just an idea if anyone wants to start a restaurant. It'll be different.
Buy a cookbook or there are many recipes on the web.
Not many eat the steak and ale pie here anymore either. But when you have it it's usually an occasion probably in a fancy restaurant with special trimmings (vegetables on the side).
The Samosa is almost everday fare now but has been adapted for English tastes. Less spices, more pastry and potato.

Goodluck Cafe (FC road) that used be the meeting point. Chai/band-maska ( never thought I'll miss that)
There was a stall for 'kathiavadi kabab' (somewhere near TDS).
Is it still there?
There were couple of good garden restaurants on perengute road. My favorite (don't remember the name!!) was almost 13 km from Karve putla.
