King of one. Jack of all. The banne (butter) masala dosa is delicious. Not for calorie conscious. The rest is very very ordinary. If you go there just take this. I wouldn't suggest anything else.

Again this find was based on Zomato and thank God for it. We had the pleasure of eating the best Upma here and later at MTR. Madly crowded, you have to almost stand on the head of people already eating. Sadly, that's the only way you would manage a table. Then, there are no menus and the only display menu... More

CTR is one more among the few famous and popular hotels in Bangalore for many decades. Situated in a crowded locality of Malleswaram, the place is always crowded with people wanting to eat its famous Masala Dosa. Though I had visited CTR many times including today, I always found the food ordinary. But sometimes, some places become very popular for... More

The fact that this management tried hard to change the name of the joint from CTR to Shri Sagar (Albeit unsuccessfully) is proof that they are trying to cash in on the popularity of CTR which used to serve the most amazing Dosas. While the dosas as ok, they are not something of an institution as proclaimed by others.

The best masala dosa you can eat is available here. You also get good Bonda here and the coffee is excellent.

Tucked away down an assuming street by Malleswaram, this stalwart of an Indian vegetarian Diner, hasn’t changed its winning formula since it opened, decades ago. Simple worn Décor.set in an old building, with small windows,and natural cooling.Parking is one big issue.Seating is tough.No booking ahead,so get there early & wait awhile.Service is cheerful & prompt.Here`s what we had :- ...

This place is always crowded and hustling with people, so its very difficult to get a table. U may almost always end up sharing with someone else. But all that effort seems worthy when the yummiest masala dosa comes in front of you! Or any other dish for that matter. Must try!
