First one has to decide weather a dining place is just chosen for overall experience of dining including taste, quality, ambience, service, courtesy and other overall experience or just for an Historic Brand name, which struggles or fails to live upto. If the choice is the 1st, the MTR to be avoided. It's present ambience - very patchy ( unless... More

Was one of the best places for tiffen(Indian snacks/ breakfast). Has lost the original taste. However people still flock there and the place is always crowded and die hard fans will disagree with me.

MTR is almost synonymous with South Indian Food. In Bangalore, it is still one of the oldest and sought after restaurants. After they started their "Ready to Eat" products, their presence is spread all over India. in fact, all over the world. Best way to visit this place is - go for a walk at the nearby Lalbagh in the...

MTR serves not only south Indian dishes which no one makes better but, also other options in a congenial environment. The quality of food is excellent as well consistently maintained. Always full and during lunch & dinner time one has to wait, invariably.

The quality of service has come down and it is hyped. Nowadays you get same or better quality dosas at most of the self service restaurants.

Not worth wasting your time, energy and increasing your Blood Pressure, waiting for a seat and then to be served. This much hyped restaurant is nothing like the past when eating at MTR was a very special event. You can never get place and the waiters are arrogant and feel you are a disturbance to them. All this because of... More

Whether it is Breakfast Lunch or Dinner MTR is the place to be. Serving traditional South Indian Fare MTR is the Must try place. Their Masala Dosa and filiter Coffee is just Divine and the best and all that a Foodie can ask. Their Lunch Menu is elaborate and rich offering local fanfare.

Traditional, Old Bangalore with great food. The aura of MTR is retained till date with the best dosas, rava idly served with ghee, great chutneys and sambar. The food here is south Indian at its best. Order any food available that is informed by the staff, who may not be dressed as the modern hotels but in a very traditional... More
