Probably a decade ago, when I use to think of binging on some nice Dosas, Vada or Idly- this was my unadulterated 'Go To' joint... Absolutely no second thoughts! Over the years, I feel the taste has faded. But, compared to other traditional joints (Darshinis) or any other popular places... read more

This is the place where you get the world's best masala dosa. I've been eating here for over five decades.

Located at the heart of old city, in a very old traditional form, limited menu of Idli, Vadas, Dosa, Upma and sheera with coffee, a very different aroma and taste. We enjoyed all these items, dosa and chutney served with it were different. Hotel has a lunch break of two hours. There is a long queue of customers waiting for... More

Crisp on one side and fluffy on the other. You have an option of plain or with masala and this is accompanied with chutney and sambar. Wash it down with coffee. On... More

Since lot of people had recommended, I made it a point to have lunch at Vidyrathi Bhavan. First, it is very difficult to get parking. Next it is closed from probably 12 Noon to 2 p.m. After it opened, we sat. The waiters were not ready to take orders till 2.15 p.m. After that, there were lot of Dosa orders... More

My friend used to visit this place when he was a student of Engg college in Bangalore 39 years back. He introduced me to this restaurant. Still, a non assuming place trying to keep tradition. Very little waiting place & no parking for either 2 wheelers or 4 wheelers. You park on Gandhi bazaar , DVG road etc. food is... More
