“Yummy South Indian fare!”
Reviewed 10 March 2012

There is no dearth of good South Indian joints in Kings Circle, Matunga. But I feel Cafe Mysore is a notch above most of them. Especially, the coconut chutney, ulundu dosas, rava dosas are excellent. The most popular attraction in this joint is rasam vada, but I find it a little spicy for my liking. There are also some rare dishes available here like a steamed preparation served in jackfruit leaf ( I think it is called khotto, I am not very sure). The place is unassuming and does not have any frills or high class ambience to boast of, but believe me, the food more than makes up for all these! Its worth a visit, not once but often.

“Best South Indian place in Mumbai”
Reviewed 3 February 2012

Excellent dosa, decent cup of coffee as well, which is unusual in Mumbai.

AC room upstairs that is always packed.

Well worth a visit.

“Simply South Indian”
Reviewed 20 November 2011

Visited this place for the umpteenth time. This time it was with friends. This place has it's own sweet charm. Located at the Maheshwari Udyan circle, this South Indian eating joint has been in existence since over 50 years. Mukesh Ambani and his family have been one of the popular customers and is known to have been frequenting this joint since his engineering days.
Enjoy the basic South Indian delicacies such as the Dosas (Mysore masala, rawa masala, Sada dosa, masala dosa), variety of uttapams, Idli with Molgapudi, rasam vada, tomato rasam, dahi Idli, bisi-bele baath, etc. Top it up with the most authentic filter coffee in a steel vati (also known as kappi). The taste here is authentic, hygiene levels high, service levels great and the fan following enormous.
The owners have been experimenting with South Indian cuisine and their Idli Gadbad is one of my favourites. It combines the simple Idli with a spicy gravy, curd and topped with spicy savoury known as sev (extruded Bengal gram flour,mixed with spices and fried). However their recent such addition known as the Dilkhush dosai was a disappointment since it's was loaded with cheese and completing this was itself a task. I was also let down since there was no room for anything else.
Nevertheless this place still has the continuing charm and shall be the referral point for atleast a few generations to come. I shall continue to visit this place for the next umpteen years as I have since the last 25 years. The only place in Mumbai which can be equalled to this South Indian vegetarian eating joint in South Mumbai is Cafe Madras, which is a stone's throw from Cafe Mysore.
Lastly, for the sweet lovers, try out the pineapple sheera or the 'jaangri'. The sheera has it's own South Indian taste, distinct from the North Indian sheera and the jaangri is not made from the same dough as jalebi.

“best south indian food in mumbai”
Reviewed 22 September 2011

can vow that this place has one of the best south indian foods being served in mumbai. i have often being greeted by long queues as they take no prior reservation but however with no frills like ambience or interiors the food is great value for money. the rasam vada, upma, mysore dosa and last but not the least king coffee in "bati" is a hot favourite.
