Variety of delicacies on a platter

Panchami Juice and Chaats, a small eatery on Bank Colony Main Road in Banashankari, has been loved by the people of the City for over a decade now.  Ever since the joint started, customers have flocked to this place to dig into the delicacies here.
 Started by brothers Sathya Rao and Girish Rao in 1997, this place has been the favourite hangout of many students and professionals in the vicinity.

Says Sathya Rao, “A decade ago, there was no chaat shop in this area. So we started this joint with the intention of serving snacks to people around the vicinity and soon, it became a hit with everyone.” Adds Girish Rao, “Initially, it was only juice and chaats. Later, due to popular demand, we extended the menu to other items.”

This place serves an array of chaats, juices and other light snacks. The food is filling and the prices are light on the pocket. Although there is paucity of space, people don’t mind relishing the snacks standing or sitting on the stone slabs nearby.

The chaats here include bhel puri, pani puri, masala puri, sev puri, dahi batata puri, samosa chaat, cutlet masala, dahi puri, papdi chaat and others.

 The burger also is available with veg, paneer and mushroom fillings. There are also special cuisines like Chinese and North Indian dishes to satiate your craving. The starters include gobi, baby corn, paneer, mushroom and aloo manchurian. When it comes to soups, tomato and sweet corn veg soup are the hot favourites.

The main course has some mouth-watering curries like paneer butter masala, palak paneer, panchami special, baigan masala, mushroom palak, dum alu, capsicum masala, veg jaipuri and many more.

To complement the gravies, there is a wide assortment of Indian breads like naan, roti, kulcha, butter naan’ and parota. This is not all.
