“Very good idlis, vadas and chutney”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Having lived in Bangalore for 5 years now, a visit to this culinary institution is mandatory. We went early morning one weekend. The vadas were excellent. The idlis, which are spoken of very highly, were a tad disappointing. Probably a bit of an off day. The crowd and the continued reputation suggest that off days are few and far between. The chutney was delicious.

The service is efficient and outdoor options for eating the food ensure that the inddors are never too congested.

Very pleasant experience!

“Brahmin's coffee bar- evergreen taste”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

My association with brahmin's bar is more than 15 years now. The menu has not changed and so also the quality. I will take a bet with anyone in the world to show me better idlies than these ! They have expanded their space in the recent past and the erstwhile coffee maker has been "promoted " to become F&B Manager . The owner used to be the F&B Manager earlier and I think one of the main criteria for the succession plan- in my estimate- the new incumbent must develop that scruffy voice while shouting the orders ! It is an experience not to be missed. Don't also miss that old "uncle" who patiently serves their trademark chutney. But, the restaurant wont open on Sundays. I have spoken several times about this to Mr Adiga. Like the taste of his products, he does not want to change this practice also. On other days the closing of the restaurant depends on when the dough gets over !

“Best restaurant for Idli & Vada breakfast South Indian style”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

The Restaurant located near Chamrajpet area in Bangalore in Shankarpuram serves hot Idlis and Vada with their signature dish chutney. This eatery opens quite early in the morning and lot of morning joggers and walkers assemble here for a cup of coffee, which has become a meeting point of sort for them. The restaurant has a limited menu it serves only Idli, Vada, Kharabhath (Upama) and Kesaribhath (sweet dish). you have the option of choosing hot Idlis with butter (with an extra charge for butter) and chutney or a combination of Idli and Vada. need to go there early morning as it gets too crowded later. It is a self service restaurant and does not provide seating, hence you have to eat standing though tables are provided outside to keep the plates and eat. Visit this place to taste the typical south indian breakfast even though served in most of the restaurants in Bangalore, the taste is what makes it unique. Sunday Holiday.
