“Really good South Indian food!”
Review of Udupi Bhavan

Udupi Bhavan

Restaurant details
Reviewed July 3, 2013

My wife and I heard about this place a few years ago when travelling through Massachussetts. We spend our late summers in Maine and have made a point of stopping here on our way home. We have never been disappointed. The South Indian food is very,very good. There are not many South Indian restaurants around compared to the usual Northern Indian variety, and of all those we've tried, this one is one of the best.
Their buffet is definitely a hit. The staff was friendly and attentive.
We'll definitely be back again this year.

My family has been coming back to Udupi Bhavan for the weekend buffet. It is a great value, and consistently good quality. The buffet comes with dosai served to your table, and usually has salad, idli, vada, sambar, rasam, curries, great chutneys, and deserts. There is a good variety week to week.

This funky, no-frills restaurant is hidden in a strip plaza next to a Jiffy Lube. The atmosphere and decor aren't much to speak of - but the friendly staff and incredible food are worth the trip. The big draw here are the dosai (huge, thin crepes) - but branch out and try it all. From the onion and chilli uthaapam to the south indian vegetable korma to the incredible desserts - everything we have eaten here on our two visits has been absolutely delicious and extremely affordable.

Being from bombay,we love indian food!This is a totally vegetarian place with a vast menu. Great service and friendly staff! On most occasions we liked the food. although let me warn you, if you are from India, you know this is not the best "fine dine" indian restaurant option you have. But none the less, we keep going back often, only for the food.I don't really like the ambiance, it's more like tables laid out in a living room, but we ignore that as the food comes. Try the south indian and north indian dishes!Also the place gets noisy, like a temple gathering at most times! hehe, but i love the noise and the food!makes me feel like home!

Fresh foods, taste is OKAY. Pulav, Onion Uthaapam, Cabbage Curry, Sambar and Gulab Jamun tastes as like as the vegetarian Madarasi Hotel.
