I eat at this restaurant almost once every week. I really love the food it's one of the only Indian restaurants I've found in the valley that actually makes the food spicy! The service is great all the waiters are very kind and helpful just good people! Love this place don't think twice about trying it out!

During a visit to Scottsdale, I was searching for Indian restaurants. I came across Udupi and decided to give it a try. I thought the food was really good and the price was right. I will definitely return here for food on my next trip.

I am not a vegetarian and all of the previous Indian restaurants I've experienced have had meat selections, my favorites usually being Tandoori chicken and chicken tika marsala. However, this serve-yourself buffet restaurant is very good, with a nice variety of tasty dishes made with potatoes, cauliflower, peas, spinach, carrots, garbanzos and other, and served with a huge, heated chunk...

Good food, Nice staff and wonderful thali varieties. One of the best Indian restaurants in the town. Very hygienic and south Indian food tastes great here. More to taste here and hope after that my opinion and review would go up :)

I have been visiting this place for the last couple of months. Food is very tasty with great service. But ambiance is very ordinary.

There are better restaurants in the area for the kind of food, taste and the price! Not prompt service to refill the dishes that were over!

Not good. Mushy dishes. Doesn't seem very clean. Nice staff, but thumbs down for me. At this place. Will not be returning.

Udupi is one of our favorite places. We meet up here with family and always take friends who are visiting. Vegetarian and vegan Indian food, made the hotness level you request. They are consistent, offer good customer service, and serve large portions. What's not to like?

We request for a special arrangement for a buffet dinner for a group. They charged $8 so the price was reasonable so as the test. Very limited verities. I liked their muttor paneer and gulab jamun but their gobi manchurian was overly shower. Paratha was also nice but they ran out of it. They have a history of negative feedback... More
