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.

There are very few places in Bangalore where standards are still On, this is one among those. Yes, this is one of the legendary restaurants to have Masala Dosa. This is located in Malleshwaram and just opposite to Grounds. CTR is famous for crispy Masala dosa, Mangalore Bajji and Filter Coffee. I have been here several times for their crispy... More

Now called Shri Sagar, CTR is a must-visit while in Bangalore. Their benne masala dosas (savory pancakes made with lots of butter!!) are the most delicious. The service is efficient, the staff is very courteous and the seating area is small. This place is generally very crowded during breakfast times but you don't have to wait too long. The place...
