One of the best dosas in bangalore

Really neat and clean restaurant but not so friendly. Also waiting can be huge especially in... read more

One of the best places to have dosas in Bangalore. You may have to wait a bit to get a seat. But its worth the wait. Also try Mangalore bajji if you are visiting in the evening times.

This place is one of the oldest hotels in Bangalore which serves the best Benne masala Dosas. The quality and taste of dosa has not changed over the years. The place is small and is crowded most of the times. So it will be a challenge to find a table but the service is quick.

One of the best "Benne Masala Dose" ever tasted. The Benne Dosa is out of the world. Service is quick. Also, their mangalore bajji or commonly known as goli baje in mangalore is mindblowing.

Wait for turn to get a table. Once you get the table, your plate of Dosas will make you forget all the wait.

If you looking for atmosphere, its not there. It is a sort of fast food joint. But if you are looking for very good food, you will find it here. The Dosas are out of the world. Yes they do put a lot of ghee. But then it is really worth it. If you cannot afford the fat, dont come... More
