Go here just for the dosas and you shall not be disappointed. They are the purveyors (along with CTH) of the classic Bangalore restaurant masala dosa. Served with excellent coconut chutney. Everything else is very good but the dosas are why Vidyarthi Bhavan still matters.

A note of caution- this place is closed on Fridays!

Vidyarthi Bhavan at Gandhi Bazar Bangalore has been doling out crispy masala dosas to generations. Being a regular since three decades, I may be biased, but definitely you cannot get a better masala dosa anywhere in the town. My own favourite is the "Saagu-Masala", but many prefer the potato masala dosa. Another favourite is the Maddur type vada which is made only in the evenings. Poories also vie for attention here.

This is a famous place for Dosa's in Bangalore. Place is open only for certain time during the day and you need to be there during that time.
Difficult to get a seat during weekends and you need to share your table.
Dosa is good but too much ghee.
I feel there are places which offer better dosa in bangalore

There need not be an introduction to this place. Come to Gandhi Bazaar / Basavanagudi / NR Colony / Hanumanthanagar / Chamarajpet or any other place in South Bangalore and ask for Vidyarthi Bhavan and chances are that you'll meet someone who's had his share of gastronomic fantasy fulfilled here!!

Vidyarthi Bhavan is famous for their Masala Dosa. You don't really need to worry about the rest of their menu, if you haven't been here before, grab a chair and order a Masale (pronounced Masaaley) and you'll get this wonder of a food - their ghee masala dosa. It is laden with ghee, trust me - the amount of ghee will make you wonder whether you can eat the food at all.

One bite into the dosa and you'll be left asking for more. The waiters keep walking up and down the aisle, so you would seldom have to wait for one to come by to serve your needs.

I've been a regular their since my childhood days and I don't quite remember ordering anything but their dosa and vada.

Dosa at vidhyarthi bhavan is what is called a "DOSA".. Awesome! Mouth watering stuff! The way the waiters pour chutney is as if i have to have chutney with dosa :D. Crisp, with a lot of ghee and a great taste! The dosa is smaller in size and overly priced for that size. But i dont think that should really matter when your taste buds yearn for more dosa :D. Highly recommended! However, if you want to it to be a take away, i do not recommend it cuz the taste is totally lost. Enjoy the taste!
