Soft hot idli, hot & super crispy vada, mushy & creamy khara bhat, double-bean added delish Bisi Bele Bhaat with boondi topping, & kaara as-much-as-you-want chutney - over the years this is what I've eaten & loved about Veena Stores. Please be prepared to stand in a line to wait to order the food, there is no seating, there is... More

This is a shop. And the queues are on the footpath. They issue a token and you get food in dry compressed leaf plates with dollops of chutney. Extra helpings of chutney are free. Puliogare, idly, vada, etc form the list of what is served here. Filter coffee rounds up the experience.

Went for breakfast on Sunday morning. Had to stand in queue for a while but was worth the wait. Hot steaming idli were very soft and went along well with crispy vada. Puliogare rice and filter coffee were also good. Worth the wait. They don't serve sambar but unlimited coconut chutney.

Apparently this used to be a simple shop that put out Iddly's (South Indian rice cakes) for sale by a lady in 1977 and has not looked back since. I was stunned that there were 32 people in line ahead of me when I' arrived Sunday morning at 10 am. You order your food and stand on the street pavement... More

Softest idlis and crispiest vadai that you can imagine. Never mind the small queues. Also try their kesaribath

No wonder why people stand in the Q to buy "Idli" at Veena store. It is so soft & Chatni is so yummy, you mom would wonder how he could achieve this? Dosa, Pulav, Bisibele bath are the other delicious quick breakfast items served here. Must visit once.

We went to this place at about 11 a.m. and there was no crowd. The place had nice Upma, Kesari bhaath, Idli and Vada. We enjoyed the steaming idlis served in areca tree leaves and the chutney being served by another person sitting in front of the store. Chutney too was very tasty. The place is clean and the food...

Do not believe the detractors. This place is NOT overrated. Absolutely stunning idlis and vadas. Soft, delicate idlis served with the perfect coconut chutney and light, airy, crisp vadas that make a 30min bike ride on a Sunday morning completely worthwhile. If, like me, you are coming all the way from South Bangalore just for these heavenly idlis, take a... More
