Good old Bangalore food!

I have been eating here for the last fifteen years and the taste has remained the same ever since. The vadas are crispy and you have a choice of the watered down chutney or the regular chutney. The idlis are as soft as they can get. If you are ever in Bangalore, do not miss this old school spot... read more

All that in the Menu are good, but weekend Queue turns one off! There used to be time in the fast when softness of idly used to be unique, but not any more! Now we have many other joints at various corners, who are matching that quality.

Voted as best idly in Bengaluru again and again, Veena stores doesnt disappoint. The idlys are soft and tasty, served with tasty green chutney. Apart from Idly which Veena store is famous for, it has some some other delicacies too which are worth a try like Avalakki and puliyogare.

There was a time when I used to get Idly and vada for a reasonable price but it has gone up 3 times with dimnishing quality , thanks to the popularity. The queue will be 1 km on weekends and the owners have done nothing to improve the quality of service even though they are getting huge profits.

The idly, vada and other breakfast items are the best you can get in Bangalore. Try it once and you will get addicted to the taste :D You can get ample parking on the streets nearby. Be aware though there is no seating facility. You need to stand and eat. Worth every bite ;-)

This place has excellent idli, chutney and vada. Though there is no place to sit and eat, lot of people stand on the foot path and savour the tasty food available here. The steaming idlis and very tasty chutney and hot vada is something all enjoy. Many other items are available, snacks and many more items. Just stand and enjoy... More

This is a small fast-food very similar to a drive thru but way smaller and right in the main street of malleshwaram, the quality and quantity is very good by Indian standards. What to expect : south Indian breakfast cuisine, park and dine or stand and dine, reasonable prices, tasty and wholesome meals and self service :)
