Why so much fuss?

Went to CTR in Malleshwaram for breakfast . It was awfully crowded. Could not even enter the resturant! With great difficulty went in and had to give name to a guy so we are in the Q!! There was no place to even sit forget stand! After 45 min. We were called. Went upstairs. Orders were taken and... read more

This is the place that redefined Dosas for me. The place is very famous and you can expect a waiting time. But when the Dosa reaches your table, you realize the wait was worth it. The Bene Masala Dosa is the go-to Dosa people recommend. I also had some vada. I can say one of the best South-Indian meals I... More

CTR is the best place for a masala dosa in Bangalore. I just wait for an excuse to visit this place.

Super pricing - best benne masala dosa and goli baje in bangalore. You have to be ok to stand in queue and shuffle into any available crevice - the place is small but neat. The food is best eaten in the restaurant. No one can argue with the freshness - their tables turn faster than a cheetah on a kill.... More

Simple restaurant where you get the most delicious dosa for 40 Rs. Don't expect the staff to speak English but "two masala dosas" will get you everything you need. We had to share the table (would rather say had the luck of sharing a table) which quickly got us into a conversation with some local people. Go here to experience... More

Simple good quick South Indian fast food. The dosas are excellent, dripping with buttery goodness. The staff is brisk but friendly. Go for the dosas and the coffee.

Quite simply the best dosa you can eat. If you want more than that then its just a great experience to eat at this place. One of the few remaining places in Bangalore that have stuck to what they are good at. The price has shot up since the first time I ate here like two decades ago but it... More

Check your hands after eating the tasty dosa and the bajji and you will think before licking your greasy fingers. Taste wise second to none and experience wise not a bad one. Plan your visits based on their open timings as they open after 4.30PM in the evening and close by 8.30 or 9 ish. Just be patient enough if... More

The dosas are smaller and more oily than I remember from my last visit there. The place though still makes good food and is extremely popular. I like the fact that their haven't given up on the old world type decor that makes it feel like an old hang out joint.
