The place is not like any other restaurant, its was built back in 1943 and has been kept traditional. the menu is limited but covers main south Indian dishes, must try Khara bhat which is upma, really spicy and tasy! the vadas r cripsy and the most different made dosa I ever had. the dosa is oily but its okay...

Had to wait for half an Hour and let me tell you it was worth it.. Dosa was thick and crispy, and the smell of ghee just added to the flavor. Chatni was also good. However didnt like the sambhar. But the taste of dosa just compensated for it. Coming to the ambiance part, it was good and traditional. The... More

This is where i spent all the lunch hours when i was studying. The quality has not changed one iota from those days. An unpretentious place, with minimal facilities, people waiting for tables to become free...waiters coming out of the kitchen with masala dosas in plates stacked all the way up to their elbows ! An unsurpassable sight. A must... More

Located centrally, VB is one of the best joints not only for masala dosa but also for other south Indian delicacies, like idly, vada, poori and other south Indian food. Hygiene is well maintained. The surroundings and even the interiors of it have not changed much through the years.Though the place is small and at times crowded, it is worth... More

The place is old and renovated. Best known for its masala Rosa and chutney. The wait is worth on a holiday.

this is a verrry old, very well known place for dosai in gandhi bazaar. the place is clean, airy, and focus is on the dosas alone. even though the waiter tries to lure you to try out uppittu, poori-saagu etc....the order is invariably for bennay-masalay-dosai followed by filter coffee. the dosay is crisp and bronze on the outside and deliciously...

I've been going to this restaurant for over 40 years and as a proud local, I admit I am biased. And during this time, not much has changed. The taste of the dosas is almost identical to what it was 40 years ago. The restaurant has been expanded a bit to accommodate more guests but waiting for a seat (not... More

The ghee laden masala dosas are to die for if you can get over long waits, public sector service and bare basic interiors. The. Filter coffee is a great way to end the meal. Not a place you will want to visit if you want a quite dinner.

I read the reviews online & made it a point to visit this place. It gets pretty crowded really fast. We were lucky to get a place to sit. However the service is pretty poor. It took almost 20-30 mins to get what we ordered. The waiters' attitude was pretty casual. We tried the medu vade & masala dosey. Overall... More
