I have visited this place quite a few times. The taste ranges average to excellent for the same dish - as they are not consistent (or it's just me who experienced it).

This is a south Indian, vegetarian restaurant. It is also BYOB and there are no good places to buy wine or beer in the neighborhood, so be sure to bring alcohol with you if you wish to have it. The food was really pretty good - I have always wanted to try good Dosai (south Indian rice/lentil crepes), and these... More

Udupi Palace on Devon in Chicago has been almost synonymous with the place to get South Indian food. I've been there a number of times, but lately they seem tired and careless. Last time I ventured ordering the Panjabi Thali (maybe a mistake in this restaurant, but it was one of their daily specials) and it fell short. The chapati... More

The food was good and service was quick.Among the dishes we tried, Uduppi special spring dosai, chilli baji, gobi manjurian, aloo gobi masala, sambar vadai were the pick of the day. Highlight of day was "Rose Milk". They made for us when we asked even though they are not in menu. Request the management to add the same in the... More

This place was a-mazing before. Fresh, fast, delicious! So authentic! Caring proprietor, okay service, cleanish atmosphere. No more. Beware the old reviews for this place. 1) Food is not fresh, not even microwaved properly. 2) Specialty is supposed to be south indian food, new owner is north indian, so focus has shifted to indian chinese. 3) Mango lassi is disgusting,...

The ambience is a little lacking, but they more than made up for that with service and the quality of the dishes - both South Indian and North Indian fare. I had been to one other Indian food establishment in Devon street, and was (very) pleasantly surprised with the quality of service at Udipi. We were a group of ten... More

There aren't a ton of South Indian restaurants on Devon, but this one's pretty authentic and very good. We've been coming here for years and the dishes are solid -- dosai, vudai, etc. The restaurant is nice as well. They have a new Indian-Chinese menu, which may have good dishes but isn't very authentic (although Indian Chinese food is currently... More

I love Udupi food and this time when I visited with my family, I didn't feel I was eating in Udupi. The taste was not that great this time and service was also lagging. there was not much rush but still it was below expectations.

Great food and welcoming atmosphere! Of the many restaurants along Devon Ave., this one offers an excellent selection of 100% vegetarian southern Indian food. They offer a wide selection of options, from vegetable dishes to paneer and naan. They also have delicious desserts and drinks. You can never go wrong with a mango lassi! The interior appeared to be recently... More
