if you are from north of india, then folks avoid this restaurant. He does not provide sambar. Other wise, idli is top quality. other options are upma+vada and chutney.

This is literally like a drive by restaurant where you stop car, take a plate of the idlis and sit in your car and eat. The idlis are soft like cotton and literally melt in your mouth. The secret is to add lots of chutney to it and the idli would be swimming in the chutney. There are no tables,... More

I have been visiting this joint since 1985,as a school going kid. Soft idlys here virtually melt in the mouth. Crispy vada, yummiest chutney, which you can get more and more yummy upma or kharabhat as they call, good kesribhat. Neat clean and can proudly add this joint as the best idly vada joint of bangalore

This is not a rave place nor a hyped up upmarket restaurant - but a simply adorable institution which holds its own fort amidst the hustle and bustle of Bangalore's vibrant youth. A place to relax over the weekend - call your friends, place your order for the crispy vadas, steaming fresh soft idly with a super formula chutney that... More

This place is an institution and functional from 1965 onwards. They have expanded the place recently but there is no seating area. You have to get your order and stand outside with your friends. Fortunately the service is super fast and you can have your food, stand back in queue and have your next round. I did that thrice :-)... More

Aah, how I miss you... An old "Darshini" style, standing only restaurant in Basvangudi. The vadas are crisp and chutney outstanding. Wash it down with a cup of hot coffee. Comfort food for me. The place does get very crowded though and parking can be difficult to find.

Probably the best Idly Vada combo you can get in Bangalore! Topped with butter, it definitely tickles your tastebuds irrespective of your age :). Have been having here since 2005, when I shifted to Bangalore and not a free time goes missing the amazing food here!

Brahmin's Coffee Bar is one of the old small restuarant located near Shankar Mutt in Basavangudi. They supply mainly Idli ,Vada& Kharabath with Chetni.Coffee is strong & good. The price is reasonable and the food is hygienic. The place is crowded, nevertheless clean. Must visit to experience old Bangalore charm.
