“Idli vada”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

Good place to catch up with friends for morning breakfast during weekends and have Idli vada. There is no place to sit but you can stand eat and talk as long as you want!

“Best Idliii's !!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

If you want to see a place where people stand in queue to taste idli vada, this is it. Situated in one of the green residential area , Shankarpuram can be a sure must visit eatery in south Bengaluru.

A simple darshani style hotel, is famous for soft idli & crisp vada combination. You also have options of Kara Bath , Kesari Bath and coffee / tea.

Very close to Shankara mutt and bull temple road, trying to get car parking very close to this place will be a problem, hence recommended to park your vehicles in near by place and walk down

Also, check for the timings , its not opened all day, only few hours in morning and evening. ( Closed from 12.

“Very good idlis, vadas and chutney”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

Having lived in Bangalore for 5 years now, a visit to this culinary institution is mandatory. We went early morning one weekend. The vadas were excellent. The idlis, which are spoken of very highly, were a tad disappointing. Probably a bit of an off day. The crowd and the continued reputation suggest that off days are few and far between. The chutney was delicious.

The service is efficient and outdoor options for eating the food ensure that the inddors are never too congested.

Very pleasant experience!

“Brahmin's coffee bar- evergreen taste”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

My association with brahmin's bar is more than 15 years now. The menu has not changed and so also the quality. I will take a bet with anyone in the world to show me better idlies than these ! They have expanded their space in the recent past and the erstwhile coffee maker has been "promoted " to become F&B Manager . The owner used to be the F&B Manager earlier and I think one of the main criteria for the succession plan- in my estimate- the new incumbent must develop that scruffy voice while shouting the orders ! It is an experience not to be missed. Don't also miss that old "uncle" who patiently serves their trademark chutney. But, the restaurant wont open on Sundays. I have spoken several times about this to Mr Adiga. Like the taste of his products, he does not want to change this practice also. On other days the closing of the restaurant depends on when the dough gets over !
