It is traditional restaurant, one of the earliest one for Bangalore, well known for Crispy Masala Dosas! If you Google for Masala Dosa, you are definite to get Vidyarthi Bhavan. The other uniqueness of this place is about the waiters stacking 8-10 plates of Dosas while serving. Masala Dosas are the best of Bangalore, but weight watchers better avoid because... More

I am not the correct person to rate it. As per the name if you check out is shows it's a canteen for students since 1943. Ancient days Basvangudi use to be the hub of Bangalore. So most of the education institutes are nearby. Now the 3 generation is doing the business. Like all other monuments of Bangalore. In the... More

If you are in Bangalore you must not miss one of the famous eateries, especially for its unique Masala Dosa. You will love the traditional, hygienic and superb service. No wonder the taste and authenticity keeps customers waiting for hours together for those special dosas, especially during week-ends. Located in the busy Gandhi Bazaar, you can do your shopping as...

We moved to Bangalore about six months back and all our friends were surprised that we had not been to this place. Visited this quaint old restaurant yesterday since there was so much hype regarding the masala dosa and kesari bath. Regret to say that it was a huge let down. We had no issues with waiting outside the door... More

Though it is popular for Masala Dosa, i liked their Rava Vada and filter coffee. The taste of the masala dosa is not so great as it used to be a decade ago, but the ambiance is maintained mostly same. Its still one of the best dosa u can have.

I like this place. Its' nice and clean. But mind you, its no fine dining. I stick to the Dosa's and idlis here. Never tried anything else here. My Plain Dosa was completely soaked in Ghee (butter). The next time I go, I will go back to idli again. Fat free

For all those giving a less than 5 stars - folks, this is not about the food, I realize its a restaurant - but - look it was established in the 40's. So a lot of us went there as kids, I recall my dad saying his dad took him there, and I fondly recall my dad taking me there... More

Vidyarthi Bhawan is located in the main road of Gandhi Bazaar. Nowadays, the seating area has been expanded so that at one point of time, a larger number of customers can have a taste of the hot Masala dosas apart from Idli and coffee.The main attraction of this hotel is the Masala dosa. There is a lot of rush on... More
