We found this little restaurant on Trip Advisor while traveling cross country. We loved the food and the idea that we were the only Caucasians in there! Surrounded by lovely happy Indian folks. We'll be back.

The spread was good, highlight was the pav bhaji. Wish there were more south side side-dishes like poriyal, most of them were North Indian style. Also the rasam somehow reminded me of paya :). The dahi vada was too sweet for my taste. But the dosas are crisp, sambhar spicy, dal tadka was good.

It was a good weekend spread. The dahi Bhalla was the best I have eaten in a long long time. The dosas were a bit salty and oily. The channa dal was superb. The kheer was delicious. The only reason why this misses an outstanding rating is that an Udipi restaurant has to get its dosas perfect.. and Dosa Temple... More

This was the first time I had ever tried Indian cuisine, I had no idea what to order but the wonderful staff helped my boyfriend and I order from the menu. The place was small but everyone was so nice, they checked on us often and all the food was very tasty. It was a very reasonable price and I... More

I read the reviews on this site and decided, "What the heck; got nothing to lose by trying it out." Followed the directions and still missed it at first as it is tucked into the side of a little strip mall behind a convenience store. Not a really inviting exterior, but once you get inside that all changes. The place... More

This place is great. We found this place on the net when looking for south Indian options in and around the Boston area. It was quite a drive from downtown boston, but it was totally worth it. The place is a small place with a small/mid sized buffet, but all the items in the buffet are delicious. They also have... More

We are huge fans of Indian food, although until last night we had never tried Southern Indian cuisine...what a treat! Neither of us are vegetarians but I can tell you no way did we miss the meat. Even though we don't have anything to compare this with, I get the feeling we have found a hidden gem in Udupi Bhavan.... More

I can't tell you what anything is called…..but I come here about once a month for a lunch buffet. I live in Boston and come here for their food, that's how yummy it is. As a gluten free vegetarian, I am able to eat almost everything they serve. The flavors and variety in the buffet are incredible. I've been to... More

Have been here 5 times and really enjoyed it each time! Excellent variety of Indian veg dishes plus delicious dosa and chutneys. Very nice and friendly service. A bit tricky to find (make sure to get good directions!). Definitely recommended!
