Over crowded place, with people waiting next to your table. Menu is very limited with a lot of waiting time. Even the quantity they make each day is limited. If you are late, some of the menu items might already have been over for the day. The dosas are very oily, not great taste either. The way they carry 18-20... More

The dosas are not so great. I find them too oily. Packed at all times. Limited menu but people still line up.They have renovated a couple of years ago but retained all the old charm. Parking is a nightmare. Weekends are to be avoided nless you go there before 8 AM. Restaurant opens very early.

Have seen many good eat outs ome and go, some still there bt much diluted taste fare, not this one. When everything has changed in Bangalore these guys keep the... More

Visited this Hotel regularly during 1986-1980. After a lapse of 25 years again back to this hotel for breakfast. Same taste of Masala dosa. Heavy crowd waiting . Very small renovation is done . Some varieties withdrawn.

One of the oldest restaurants in one of the oldest part of Bangalore. Crispy ghee roasted Dosa, awesome chatni, wonderful filter coffee, excellent khara bath, poori, vada. Last but not the least ultimate filter coffee which will get you out of drowsiness with a kick of caffeine. You might see many reviews which say avoid, dirty place, congested, crowded etc.... More

As people know its congested area and parking a car and waiting for your turn in a crowded place isn't easy. But we waited as we had listened about its food quality. As our turn came, we entered and occupied our table to have our breakfast. We ordered idli-vadas and coffee. The idlis and vadas were quite soft and same... More

Reading the other reviews confirmed that many visit this place so that they can tick it off. If not for the knowledge of its past goodwill, I will not look at the place again. It was a disappointing trip.
