The Best Dosa in Bangalore, but the issue now is the amount of oil used in the dosa, Before it used to be moderate, but the last time i visited the amount of Oil was too much. Anyway people are more cautious about oil these days, And do not forget the Strong Coffee after a plate of Dosa.

Dosa gets soggy. - rest of the menu is ordinary - Ambeience and... More

I have been going here for the past so many years. No visit to Banglaore is complete without a visit here. The food is awesome and the ambiance is simple and makes the food there the star of the piece.

Visited this place with an old friend and the setup of this place only reminded us of the school days where one had to sit in line in order to get the food served. The place has a very simple sitting arrangement and ambience but they maintain their reputation with the quality of food they serve. The dosas are really... More

No doubt that its a historic landmark.. The dosa is good.. but personally I don't think its the best dosa I have ever eaten. there were quite a few places which serve better dosa.
