They have quiet a menu and taste is good. Prices are reasonable. We tried rava idli, idli vada, avalakki, paddu, open dosa , plain dosa, rava dosa and coffee. Coffee and dosas are must try.

We were 12 people and were lucky to be accommodated in one single room on the ground floor. The evening snacks were very good - Both the Masale Dose and the Masale Poori were good.

Meenakshi Bhavan is an old name with a tasty spread of food at reasonable prices.But the ambience is poor. Ideal for a quick lunch.

This is a good restaurant in the town, but always overcrowded and quality of the dishes are not always consistent. On some busy day you could end up with average preparations and some days it's great. Masala dosa, puddu, coffee are most popular dishes. Don't...expect much with ambience, staff etcMore

This has never been known for ambiance or a very clean environment, But, based on my 7-year old recollection of eating tasty food here, went here recently for breakfast. We ordered a bunch of dishes - Idli & Avalakki with yogurt were tasty; Vada was...crisp & tasty but very oily; Upma was bad; Masala dosa was bad. Within three hours of eating, I had an upset stomach. I think this place is surviving on past glory. I will not eat here again.More

It was my long time dream to visit this Restaurant & therefore yesterday when I visited Shivamogga, the first thing which came to my mind was to visit this Restaurant, without fail. So I tailored my program in such a way that, I squeezed some...time especially to visit Meenakshi Bhavan, for Lunch. But even though I had visited this Restaurant plenty of times before, this time, to my bad luck, the taste was far below average and I was very disappointed & repented heavily for visiting this Restaurant.More

This is one restaurant you should not miss while you are in shimoga.. Serves a variety of south Indian delicacies.. We visited this place for breakfast and tried masala dose, paDDu and kharabhath (uppit).. Must say, that their dosas are the best! The place has...a certain old world charm, the waiters are patient and cordial.. Service is quick but can get a little slow on Sunday mornings thanks to the huge crowds.. Highly recommend this to all dose uppit coffee lovers :) Cheers, ShruthiMore
