    The curries aren't that great. I'd suggest focusing on the dosas.

    Love the dosas and bhatura! This place is a little cheaper and tastes a little more authentic than the restaurant Dosa nearby. Most of the menu is vegetarian, by the way!

    Idlis are bomb, so soft and just melt in your mouth. Definitely took me back to South India.

    Big portions. Onion and hot chilli uthappam is way spicier than expected. Chana masala curry comes with rice and is very flavorful.

    If the 'House Curry Dosa' is a special, order it. The curry is delicious (spicy with a hint of sweetness), the dosa is flavorful (though less crispy), serving huge and the price ($10.95) can't be beat

    To get a more local Bangalore 'Sagar' feel, come here. Good food. Sambar vada and masala dosas are exactly like a local Sagar place back home. But why isn't the vada doughnut shaped 😳

    The paneer makhani is insanely delicious here! Also, the special rava masala dosa is filling and flavorful. Their uthapham are a great (and tastier) alternative to naan, and they have great fillings.

    The dosas at this all-vegetarian South Indian eatery are massive, but good enough to be wolfed down in a single sitting. Top pick: The Onion Masala Dosa, flanked by three different chutneys.

    Coffee that's lukewarm instead of hot, samosa that's actually COLD instead of hot make this a place that's unforgettable... in a bad way.

    Eat everything. But to be properly South Indian, you should start with sambar vada; follow it up with a paper masala dosa; and finally, close with a hot sweet cup of chai.
