I have visited this restaurant so many times in the last twenty years and it has retained its shine over the years. A legendary name, Vidyarthi Bhavan stands tall among the crowded restaurant scene in Bangalore. Its Masala Bhavan are one of the best that I have had. The food here is delicious and they maintain high quality. There is... More

If the place has more people waiting outside than the number eating inside, you know it does not need reviews!! But it also means that we ended up picking a parcel since the waiting time was 40 minutes. The wada, idli and chutney were awesome .. dosas had gone limp and i do not like the orange sambhar from this... More

This place was once known for it's Benne Masale Dosa. The hotel once had a fame of having Dr. Rajkumar and many other celebs visited here. However, now the hype is only till you visit the place. Right from Dosa, everything served here seems average. A visit will tick your check-list of historical food joints if you have a dream... More

I went with my family and friends in the night. We had an awesome masala dosa and rava vada. It was really tasty and the chutney is very tasty as well. You dont get anything else much other than dosas and vada. So please remember that. Also, it gets extremely crowded in the evenings. So, it is better to call... More

You cant get better Masala Dosas than the one you get in VB. The place looks old and jaded, but the food is lip smacking. And the waiters (who are part of the founding family) carry a minimum of 10 dosa plates

You get to identify this place when a person near the entrance has a book register and calls out people names and there is a huge crowd waiting to barge in. You give your name for the booking and it usually takes 30-45 minutes, time to go for shopping and then come back. This is the place for dosas and... More
