Nice restaurant, truly excellent dosas. They have friendly, efficient service and a nice selection of chutneys. It is a good place for lunch on a budget. Great for vegetarians.

Absolutely the worst Indian food in continental US!!! Tasteless, insipid food that has nothing Indian about it. Worst dosa I have had in my life - looks like a dosa, but is totally bland. No flavor at all. Same goes for the coconut chutney and sambar. Filter coffee was instant Nescafé mixed in hot water. Can't be any more inauthentic... More

The place has no frills but the food is special and full of exotic spices blended in a way that stimulates taste buds you didn't know about. Take your time relishing it. The servers like Sundarshan are highly dependable and the chefs like Suman are very skilled. Everything in Udupi Palace centers around the food and making it ihealthy and... More

So we missed the lunch hour venues in and around her dorm. So when we saw this place open after 3pm we went in. My sister, my niece and I were very hungry. Place was small, the waiter immediately greeted us and asked if we wanted any beverage. We all tried each of their Udupi specials. Yummy, the food was... More

Typical hot, greasy, satisfying Indian Dosa. I find dosas hard to come by and was delighted with the variety of vegetarian dosas available. Great chai too.

We have been going to Udupi Palace for years but last week it was thoroughly disappointed. The masala dosa was soggy and the filling was tasteless. The thali was so-so. It is hard to find good South Indian food in the East bay and this was our "go to" place. The dosa at Vik's is a lot better and if... More

we arrived in Berkeley after a long flight from the UK and decided to have dinner here - it was an excellent choice as the food was lovely and light and great value/taste and nice and quick! It's quite a basic restaurant but had a nice family atmosphere with lots of south indians eating there which is always a good... More

Wow is the only word when it comes to having south Indian food at Udupi. Had to wait a bit and but lemme tell u ...it was worth the wait. Awesome food ,great service and tastiest south Indian ever had. It tasted better than the south Indian food udupi serves in India. Highly recommended
