“Classic South Indian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Ram Ashray is one of those classic Udipi restaurants in Mumbai where one can get the real flavor of South Indian food. Whether it is the filter coffee or the melt-in-the-mouth idlis or the variety of dosas - each is a class apart. Not to forget the fact that it is completely value for money.

They start early at 5am and the shutters are down by 9.30pm sharp. Though the place is perpetually crowded during the day, over the years I’ve realized that the best time to visit is early morning when they open (of course, at that time they serve only Idli and maybe dosa if you are lucky) and also late afternoon i.e. post 3.30-4pm but before dinner time. Look out for the special items of the day which are hand written on a board there and make sure to reach there on time to avoid disappointment!

I’ve been regularly coming here since many years now and never have I had anything at Ramashraya which has not been up to the mark. They offer amazing variations in Sheera everyday – Pineapple, Chocolate, Strawberry, Roasted Almond ….Wow!!! The Neer dosa is served with sambar and 2 chutneys. The Bisi bele Bhaat and curd rice are awesome as well. The Rawa Dosas are crisp and Uttappas are cooked to perfection. This place easily offers the softest Idlis in Mumbai…Not to be missed at any cost.

“Restaurant par excellence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

This is simply one of the authentic South Indian udipi restaurants in Mumbai. It opens as early as 5:30 am.

The food is so delicious that one would never stop eating.

The dosa and idlis are mouth watering.

Only problem is there is always too much queue to get a table. But that's what happens at good popular places.

I love this place.

“Odd-time Oasis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

The best time to visit Ramashreya is when it ain't meal time. The restaurant gets pretty crowded and there is no place to wait as it's in the middle of Matunga market space. Try to make it for 11am or 3pm and you will be able to find a seat quickly. The service is quick and efficient and the food is yum. The speciality of Ramashreya is their innovative sheera. They have two kinds for you to choose from everyday. One day it is mango and strawberry and the next is jackfruit and pineapple and so on. Their snacks and meals and desserts are very very good. Not a place you can lounge around and have a leisurely meal but a place where you can grab something tasty in about half hour.
