You might look in the door and think, "This place is small and very basic", but be sure to sit down and order! Like our group did, perhaps you'd like to try vegetable utthapam (thick pancake made from rice & lentil flour, studded with onions and vegetables), paneer makhani (Indian cheese cubes in spiced tomato gravy), poori (Puffy fried bread),...

On my latest trip to Berkeley I was walking by and then decided to give this place a shot! Needless to say I was very impressed. Despite it being an incredibly crowded evening and lots of people bustling in and out within 10 minutes of putting in my to go order of coconut curry vegetables in hand and I was... More

I stopped in for Mysore Masala Dosa during a visit to UC Berkeley. So good to have my favorite treat! I don't get to India often enough. I've had a lot of dosa, over the years, and this one was pretty darn good. The atmosphere is simple, the service was good, the prices reasonable. The bathroom was not especially pleasant... More

This place came highly recommended to me, and I was very disappointed after trying the food here. Maybe it was just a bad day for the restaurant or something? It's probably worth another try just to make sure, but the food was average at best. I had samosas as an appetizer, which were decent. My wife and I had masala... More

If you like Indian, eat at this place on University Ave. Try the Chana Battura, Utthapam and Dosa, or any of the other standard Indian dishes, appetizers, and naans.

A chain with eight other locations, Udupi Palace is a great place close to UC Berkeley Specializing in dosa, a stuffed crepe-like dish, they also have uthapam, a pancake-style variation of dosa, in addition to more traditional Indian curries, such as chana masala and vegetable curry. They also have two tomato-base soups. For a visual as well as a gastronomic... More

When we were here last my husband wasn't impressed with the dosas but I persuaded him to try it again as we were both really craving dosas. My Masala dosa was cooked to perfection, crispy just as I asked and the best really that I have had for a long time since we moved back from India. Everyone, even dear... More

Perhaps if I'd known that there's be no meat dishes... and that we'd have to pay with cash.....and if the website had listed the correct address we'd have been in a more receptive mood. Still, the food was, in the end, unremarkable.

I love Udupi Palace. It has delicious, affordable, spicy South Indian food. The thali is the best - a little bit a everything to taste, including dessert. I also think the dosas are delicious. They have great hours, and the staff is friendly. It's not fancy, but if you want some super tasty and affordable food, check out Udupi!
