We always look for clean & tasty food. One of our destination for tasty food is MTR. I love rava idly from MTR. One thing i hate is waiting for our turn to get seat,but after eating tasty food you forget your pain while waiting.

Overrated!! Earlier MTR used to be a sign of Kannadiga food, the BEST of it. Oflate most of the MTR's ive had are very very mediocre. Sorry for such a comment, but they dont deserve any better!
