Best Dosas. Visit this place for probably the Best Benne Masala Dosas in Bangalore... They also have the other breakfast regulars, but everyone starts with the Dosa....If coming here on a weekend, best you start early and inform the waiters of your presence if there is a rush, wait times are around 10 mins to be seated. You probably would... More

Finally managed to visit the much heard about breakfast joint. It was a Saturday morning and the place was full to the brim. We had to stand next to a table, I bet the diners were pestered with our hungry eyes waiting for them to vacate the seats just as we felt when others waited to find a seat. Amazing... More

In my limited experience, the dosa at this restaurant is the best I have tried. It's crispy and soft. The vada is also extremely nice. It's also the first time I got to try the traditional Indian coffee in a traditional cup. The service is quick. The food is cheap but good in quality. I'm satisfied overall. If you can,... More

You can't find a better plan than CTR, Malleswarm for Benne dosa as swell as malasa dosa. Both are simply mouthwatering and if you are in Bangalore just make it to CTR, a must visit for dosa lovers

Situated in the heart of Bangalore, this is one of the oldest hotel in charming Malleswaram area, Bangalore. This hotel is opened only for a limited time in the morning and in the evening, Let me set the expectation first – If you really want to enjoy the traditional Bangalore dishes, without caring much for the ambiance, then you can...

Went with a group of local friends. Woke up at 7:00am for an early AM breakfast. This is the best place to enjoy what is called as "Benne Masala Dose" (buttered crepe with potato filling). As the morning grows, so does the wait time. Try the "plain dosa" which is extremely delicious. The chutneys given as sides are mouth watering.

Visited for breakfast. Jam packed as it was a Sunday. We ordered the rava Idli and the Benne dosa. The Idli was dry and the Dosa was buttery to the point of being nauseous. Add to that, the waiters stood next to the table staring at us and handed us the bill while we were still eating. The only plus... More

One of the oldest dosa places and still running as they still have maintained the same taste. The dosas are the best i have tasted in bangalore, and for sure you cannot eat just one. The maddur vade too reminds you of the orignal one from maddur itself. The only big drawback being no other available branch, the cramped up... More
