Trip for Dosa

Went here on recommendations from friends. I went here with two of my friends. First, I have to say that I have not had Dosa in a long time so it was a treat to eat Dosa. We made a special trip from Providence, RI area to Middletown, CT just to have Dosa. There is no place in Providence, RI... read more

Udupi Bhavan serves amazing South Indian vegetarian food, so don't come expecting typical Indian fare served elsewhere--some of the dishes are similar but the flavors are definitely different. This is a no frills, utilitarian, simple place in terms of ambiance but the food is delicious. It's vegetarian only, and they don't accept American Express.

It's all about the food here. Magnificent all-vegetarian dining with friendly service. We nearly always get takeout.

We were taken to Udupi Bhavan by two friends from India who told us this is the tastiest Southern Indian food they have found in the area. We feasted on tasty dosas, uthapam and many other dishes, dips and condiments. Those in our group who were vegetarian and gluten free had much to enjoy from a varied, extensive selection! The...

Pleaseant surprise. My son was looking for a Indian place on Mad Cow and came across this place. Food was wonderful in a unique place. Food is served on plastic bowls but don't be fooled.

when wanting something quick, reasonably priced and out of the ordinary. It still is quick; you get your beverage, cups, plastic utensils and small, but better than nothing napkins. Then you set your table which is situated in a bare bones, dreary dining area. Food was spicy, served hot but portions lacking in size and prices have skyrocketed. For what... More
