From a humble beginning, the Empire family has now grown into one of the leading chain of restaurants in the Garden City of India.


From a humble beginning, the Empire family has now grown into one of the leading chain of restaurants in the Garden City of India. The successful (his)tory of Hotel Empire began with the start of a small restaurant on Central Street, Shivaji Nagar in 1966 by a non-resident Indian, Mr. Abdul Rahim from Malaysia, who had a long and an excellent track record in the field of catering.

Empire went through the metamorphosis of its growth under a number of efficient managements till it has reached the present milestone. It has gone from strength to strength, thanks to the unrelenting patronage and support from the public of Bangalore famous for its penchant for mouthwatering and sumptuous food. The management is always keen to take care of the individual tastes and preferences of every one of its valuable patrons. Hotel Empire took a remarkable turn in terms of service and business under the present management that took over in the early Eighties. The restaurant was constantly upgraded with new services and tastier delicacies. Air-conditioned dining halls were introduced and the premises expanded to meet the ever growing demand of the Empire fans. The building that housed the restaurant was rebuilt in the late Nineties and more than thirty very comfortable and reasonably priced rooms were added to make it a full-fledged hotel. In the meantime, new restaurants of Hotel Empire were opened in the Russell Market and Kammanahalli, maintaining the traditional Empire standards.

The progress story of Empire continued, as a new prestigious venture called Hotel Empire International, with more than thirty aesthetically designed and furnished rooms and a spacious restaurant and juice centre, was opened in 2004 at an ideally located place in the heart of Bangalore on Church Street off MG Road. The expansion of the group went ahead further with the opening of another magnificent hotel and restaurant, Empire International in the Koramangala area, the IT hub of Bangalore in 2006. Two more restaurants, Little Empire and Empire Restaurant were subsequently opened in Millers Road, Vasanth Nagar and Mosque Road, Frazer Town respectively in 2007 and 2009. In order to cater to a different class of customers, Empire opened its flagship project, the Empire Suites, in the up-market Brigade Road and MG Road area, offering 32 cozy and luxuriously furnished apartments complimented by a top-floor swimming pool and gym.

The elegantly appointed studio, one and two-bedroom suites bring a high level of comfort and sophistication. Carefully chosen and coordinated accessories complement the suites.

The new Empire Restaurant on the 80 feet Road in Indiranagar which opened in Sept 2010 is an excellent place for savouring the mouth watering Empire dishes. The ambience is superb and the place is very spacious with three floors of elegant state of the art interiors, with a seating capacity of approximately 250 and a spacious party hall on the second floor. The First branch in Mysore was inaugurated on the 2nd of November and the Mysore crowd was only too happy that Empire made its presence there as well. It is a complete casual dining restaurant in a fine dining atmosphere. The restaurant is located on Kalidasa Road and is housed with 4 floors with a seating capacity of 300pax with a party hall on the 2nd floor. We have created a superb “homely feeling” with beautiful lighting and music, to enhance the ambience…! Empire came up with a food counter in the Orion Mall food court, located in Yeshwantpur. The Orion Mall has a 55,000-sq-ft food court area and a property promoted by the Brigade Group.

Dine away, with Empire all the way…! The never ending expansion of Empire is now in Maddur too..! Same taste, same quality and the same service just a different place. One and a half hours drive from Bangalore. A beautiful garden restaurant and a landscaping that one should not miss. Yes, Maddur has welcomed Empire with its new branch on the 12th of April with a soft opening and the response was overwhelming. To cater to the southern part of Bangalore, Empire thoughtfully added an outlet in Jayanagar in 2013, so the southerners wouldn’t have to travel long distances to get their favourite dishes. RT Nagar is another outlet that opened in the same year with all the Empire fans enjoying our delicacies. HSR Layout, short for Hosur-Sarjapur Road Layout, is a relatively new suburb located in south-east Bengaluru where Empire made its presence there as well in 2014 and catering to a large fan of non-veg lovers. In the same year Empire opened an outlet in Majestic right next to the Bangalore City Junction and the Majestic Bus Stand. An all new exclusive restaurant called KARAMA opened in 2015 serving Arabic, Karachi and Punjabi cuisine. Three cuisines from different geographical locations under. A one of a kind dining experience that serves mouth watering dishes. Located on the buzzing Mosque Road, Karama sees a mixture of food lovers from all walks of life. The additions to the Empire group in the year 2016 is on Bannerghatta Road, Orion East Mall and the second branch of Karama in Koramangala and INFOSYS. Empire has paved its way into the INFOSYS campus to cater to its young executives coming from all over India who really struggle to have quality and hygienic food. This is one of Empire’s first ventures into an IT Park catering and serving fresh piping hot food. Our Motto is to offer quick service within few minutes to save time off their busy work schedules. The year 2017 two more outlets were opened one in Kunigal, a beautiful and a picturesque highway restaurant on the Bangalore-Mangalore highway. The first VEGETAREA restaurant is an all new concept of only Veg Food served in a dedicated seating space and an exclusive kitchen. Arekere was the other outlet that opened on the Bannerghatta road near IIM that caters to all the working corporate professionals. Stay tuned for more upcoming branches nearby to you by the end of 2017. The management is fully confident with the unstinted support shown by its patrons and thanks to its vast experience in the field spanning more than four decades. The Empire family will God willing, scale new heights in the hospitality business.
