“Authentic Dosas”
Reviewed 20 August 2012

The Masala Dosa & Filter coffee at Vidyarthi Bhavan is well cherished by the locals. Vidyarthi Bhavan has been traditionally serving these delicacies & it is a must eat for visitors to Bangalore. Nestelled in Gandhi Bazar, Basavanagudi the place has a old Bangalore charm. One will notice long queues & a certain rush to occupy the seat. The furniture is age old & reminds you of yesteryear. My favourite has been the Masala Dosa - double roast - crispy dosas served with potato filling. The Dosa are quite heavy with all the Ghee / Butter that is added. one would be adivsed to carry water & tissues.

“Tasty Dosas”
Reviewed 11 August 2012

I visited this restaurant which is on the busy Gandhibazar street in Bangalore. The colourful flower/fruits stalls/shops on the pavement near the hotel really add to the old Bangalore charm. This is a pretty old restaurant with pictures of celebrity visitors.

As usual this restaurant was full of visitors and there is little waiting time. The ambience is of the old cafes of 1970s and the past.The restaurant is famous for its Dosas and I tried them.
The masala dosa was very good. Little thick with butter/ghee flavor. Overall this is a value for money restaurant which is continuing its legacy.

“Dosa worth the wait”
Reviewed 25 July 2012

Though it takes time for the crispy butter red dosas to be served, they are one of the best, In the meantime you can order vada cutney as an appitizer, their filter coffee is also the best to gulp after the filing dosas.

“Yummmy Dosas”
Reviewed 24 July 2012

The Dosas are very very tasty & you get the typical South Indian Dosa flavour in these Dosas. The timings that they are open are very short...but real value & worth the wait!!!
