Vidyarthi Bhavan offers unique crispy masale dose. It is well roasted and with the chutney and butter, makes you go for the next one!! You just cant stop at one Dose. The wait can be long if you go during evenings and weekends. Also, remember, Friday is a holiday. The best time to go there is 2.30PM on other weekdays-... More

Founded in 1943, Vidyarthi Bhavan is an institution in Bangalore. I land up here with two colleagues to have the famous dosa, khara bath and rava vada. Dosa is crisper from the outside as compared to MTR and soft inside. It is yum. Rava vada is a new experience - it is crisp and crumbly. Khara Bath is comforting. Chutney... More

Enjoyed eating crispy Masala dosa a few days ago with family and friends. The chutney is also yummy. One can order two types of Masala Dosa- One with regular Potato and the other one 'Sagu" i.e vegetables. The only problem is place always gets crowded and often one will have to wait for tables.

Riding Down from Mysore Road, we ended up at this small restaurant at 6:20 AM. The place opens at 6:30 sharp. Get a table before all else, and you might get to eat. There was a standing queue outside at 7. That should tell you how good this place is. The service is lightning fast, the food is brilliant with... More

The Vidyarthi Bhavan is tuly a legendary eatery that gives you a glimpse of Benaluru. As expected, the food was great.. But what won my heart over is, the portraits of the pencil sketches of some of the legends from Karnataka not only adds aesthetic effect to the décor it also retains the aura and charm of the bygone era.....

Situated in the heart of the busy market in Gandhi Bazaar, this hotel was established in 1940s. Let me set the expectation first – If you really want to enjoy the traditional Bangalore dishes, without caring much for the ambiance, then you can visit this hotel. Otherwise avoid it. Complete your shopping in Gandhi Bazaar and walk in to Vidyarthi... More

A place of pilgrimage for Dosa/ idli connoisseur. Its not in the length of the menu, nor the expansiveness of the seating, the lighting or the seating. But if you are a true lover of the genuine, original, outcome of the hoary traditions of Dosa/ idli traditions, this is the place to come. Come and enjoy the dosa in all... More
