We stumbled on this restaurant, as the sweets in front looked good and I had a strong desire for a good dosa so we looked in and decided to try it. Did not know it was a popular place and we were not disappointed. We had rava dosa, masala dosa, sada dosa and rava idly. All of it was excellent.... More

The ultimate Breakfast joint in Bangalore, the oldest and culture followed inspite of passing through generation. Masala dosa, Khara Bath, Flat Jamun, Kasi allva, Simple Fruit salad, Rava idly cannot be matched any other in the business. If you visit Bangalore or Bangalorean do not miss out this place. People talk about good lunch but me being a Non-Vegetarian I... More

Superb food, excellent snacks and the service - wow well ahead of other tiffin rooms. Addition is the classic coffee - my god the day is done. Do not miss this Mavalli Tiffin Room.

The tasty rava idly is best had here. Do lick your fingers, it is not at all bad manners. Do not ever miss this as the flavour of the ghee is best enjoyed by finger licking. I prefer to have rava idly and more rava idlies here.

I had been to MTR couple of times, first time alone and then with my wife. This restaurant serves typical (I think so) local vegetarian dishes for meals. The items are hygienic and tasty. Its crowded too. Better take a token in the morning before 11 and visit Lalbagh (closeby) and come back at the time specified int the token.... More

MTR in short..was one of the best tiffin rooms in Bangalore. It was a well known place for Rava Idli with a dollop of ghee served with chutney and Sagoo. Queues used long up to have these delicious idli, dosa, upma. But as the time has elapsed I feel the taste has gone down. Its no more that extravagant.
