The MTR Gandhinagar is on the way from the airport if you have to go towards Koramangala side. Very close to Lalbaug. A wonderful steaming hot Idlis with Ghee and awesome sambhar and chutney, the Khara bhat (Upma) Dosa, everthing is good. I just cannot miss MTR.

Bangalore used to be the dosa capital of south India. Unfortunately most of the good ones have closed or, as has happened with Vidyarthi Bhavan, lost their quality and charm. The cooks in the new crop of tasteless joints with pretentious names, all called tinDi something, seem to have learnt their dosa recipes from youtube. MTR continues to stand tall... More

Go to place early and you can avoid all the waiting. The place is good for morning breakfast or evening snacks. Dinner is served only on weekends. Try out rava idli, jamoon and on weekends special sweets. Also try out salad with ice-cream

MTR Lalbagh has a separate coffee room which serves only coffee, a tribute to the die hard fans. The all you can eat meal on weekends can fill any appetite. The pooris are the best on both sides of Vindhyas.

Food is good but has the canteen style of management of the bygone era. The rest rooms are not clean. If you are looking for a place to enjoy food and relax, this place is not for you. You barely have much choice. I couldn't even get a coffee after lunch (told only after 3:30).

(Written from a USA visitor perspective) You will not find this place to like anything you've ever experienced in the US, and you'll end up delighted, satisfied, and wondering why this doesn't exist back home. OK, actually, that's not 100%. I've been to 'Fish Camps' in Mississippi and they have a bit of a similar feel, but still nothing like... More

Food is good. At times, it is quite enjoyable, other times, it is just OK. The restroom can be better.
