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 the 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, gym and spa.
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 300 pax and 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 another 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. The latest additions to the empire chain of restaurant is Jayanagar & R.T.Nagar
The management is fully confident that, 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.
