Superb food

Awesome food. The dosa, idly vada, kesari bath and every thing else followed by coffee which seems like a tradition to drink it after your full fledge breakfast. The smell and the look of it itself will increase your hunger and you will be tempted to have though you might be full. The chutney and... read more

Rich and elegant breakfast beyond compare. This was part of the Lalbaugh walking tour package that we did on our visit to Bangalore. I will always remember this bfast. The first item was freshly juiced grapes followed by a whopping large rava idli with ghee and green chutney and sambhar. This was followed by a two different pieces of dosa... More

True South Indian style dosas and filter coffee. Prefer the dosas here than the idlis. The chutney is to die for. Perfect late Sunday morning breakfast. The only thing that worries me is that I feel too stuffed after eating here. And I don't think it's got to do with the fact that I pig here. I wish the food... More

Thinking of lunch in MTR delights if you know the legacy and heritage. Tasty authentic Karnataka Meal is USP.... But I am afraid... this could be think of Past.... My recent visit to MTR gave a mediocre experience.... I found food served urgently without care... Plates with small Dips (to serve palya..... chutney etc... )... no more silver Plates They... More

Very good vegetarian hotel. It is very clean and healthy. The dishes are made out of ghee and are very tasty. During peak hours, customers have to wait to get seats inside the Restaurent.

I have been to this place few months back. It is situated in Lalbag, Though it has a long waiting queue most of the time but I believe that is worth waiting for. Once you will get a table you will be served with delicious south Indian cuisines. Loved the variety and taste. Would recommend eating there. Happy eating guys!!

MTR Hotel is located near Urvashi theatre on lalbagh road. One can relish coffee and tea and masala dosai with silver spoons . But, one has to reserve in advance to get a chance to savour the food and coffee.

While the south Indian items are quite authentic, the ambience is quite average and the service fairly poor. clearnliness is deplorable and there is a certain kind of arrogance in the place which is not customer friendly

Masala dosa is the all time favourite here followed by bisi bele bath , rava idli and lunch meal. They have opened several branches. Make a visit and enjoy a traditional variety for a change.
