Ambience is just plain, but the food is out of this world. Having lived in the South for over 25 years, I should know! The idlis are as good as the best in Mangalore style, puffy with right texture and flavour.

It is always a delight to visit Udipiwala Restaurant in Kathgodam. The food quality is awesome. One must try their Idli Sambhar. I believe its the best Idli I ever had. They actually serve the authentic South Indian food.

One of the best south Indian food in surrounding area. We have eaten there twice and taste remains the same. Food is served hot and is very fresh. Do try Idlis and Upma.

A must stop over at Kathgodam if you are travelling to Nainital / Almora / Ranikhet. Authentic South Indian food served hot at a fast speed. Definitely recommend it.
