Loved the authentic food at MTR! It was my first time trying the place but I had heard so much about it. Had a full thali meal and I truly enjoyed it. The fresh dosas brought to your table and the wonderful filter coffee to end the meal is right from heaven. Not to be missed.

If you are visiting the Passport Office at Lalbagh Road Bangalore, you must visit here for breakfast, lunch or snacks. Where else will you get to eat at a place which has created a legacy and introduced the MTR brand to the world. Their dishes have an unique taste and you will feel a different experience being at this place.... More
