I was thrilled to visit this restaurant and the varied menu was impressive. Very authentic feel and very few non-indian patrons the Saturday night we visited. The place was full. Service was pretty good and the food came fairly fast. Everything I ordered was delicious...More

Loved the Dosa, chats (Bhel puri and Papdi) - it was just the way it is prepared in India. This is a delightful little restaurant with Indian food prepared quite well. Highly recommended.

We have been to woodlands since years now! The food is great for vegetarians. The dosas are a great fit for our family. Haven’t had their buffet for a while now.

We've been eating here for years. It's a vegetarian menu but we've never been disappointed. They have a terrific luncheon buffet that's very reasonably priced, it changes daily. You can also order to take out.

We used to eat at this place back in 2004 when the food was awesome and it was owned by the original Indian owner from Udupi who later sold the place and moved to Maryland, where his restaurant now runs like a charm. It was...More

We love Woodlands and frequently do Sunday brunch there. The trick is to get there right when they open. The pani puri is delicious, and they have a good array of chutneys, curries, and desserts. They serve dosas as well.
