The simplest might be:
set(gcf, 'MenuBar', 'None')
If you need more control I would start with:

this will hide the entire menu right??
Atleast i need to keep the Hand/Rotation tool menu.

You are correct, the set method will hide everything. I have edited my answer to provide a link.

Here's what I needed:
h = findall(gcf, 'Tag', 'figMenuFile')
All the other menus appear to be tagged in a similar way:
  • figMenuHelp
  • figMenuWindow
  • etc.
