A long wait to enter super crowded old fashioned testimony to Bangalore restro with limited seats, efficient staff is all worth it for mouth watering dosa, chutney and pepper sambhar. Best breakfast eatery in place. One Can avoid queues thru reservation ( waiting no.)

Went back to VB after a hiatus of a few years and the comments from my last review are still valid. Great dosas, idlis and vadas. Great value for money. Long waits if you don't come in before 7:00 am for breakfast. Amazing scene of waiters hefting 10-15 plates of dosas on their arms - all stacked up in separate... More

This place has been successful in maintaining the old-world charm of Bangalore, in these days of fast food. I must say Vidyarthi Bhavan has changed in all these years and it has for good. Love to watch the balancing act the service staff does, with all those plates of piping hot Masaala Dosas. The Masaala Dosa with oodles of shudh... More

Dosa what they serve here cannot be found anywhere else. They have been featured in the newspapers many times for the style of carrying the dosas and customer satisfaction after eating their dosa. Simply awesome.

I never ate the dosa better than this. You may have to wait at least 30 minutes to get the table, and you may have to share the table. Everthing is worth it. Eat their SAGU MASALA DOSA.... SUPERB

Takes 45 minutes for every order but you get the best food in town, Food available : Masala Dosa, Vada , Other south Indian class Food throughout the day. Limited seats available. If you don't get a seat, wait for 45 minutes until the next batch if you are not a having a solo visit
