I love Dosa and vada smabar. Good old place of Malleswaram. Vada sambar, Dosa, Rava Idli, Managlur Bajji and coffee are the trade marks. Not great sitting place. But enjoy the taste of food here

One of the Legendary places in the Malleswaram area. Not as crowded as it used to be. The place is all nostalgic retaining their old furniture and style of serving. A small service area is available with each item prices atleast a few rupees more than the cost at the self service area. Ambience if you are expecting something modern,... More

This is one of oldest restaurants in Bangalore, situated in the busy shopping lane of 8th Cross, Malleswaram. Service is quick. Masala dosa and vada were quite good - so was the coffee.

This restaurant is inconspicuously located in the busy 8th cross of malleshwaram. You get the most delectable Medhu vadas and filter coffee here.The place gives you an old world charm which you'd realize the moment you enter. Go there to reminisce the Bangalore of yore.

Janatha was a Malleswaram icon three decades back. It was a place my parents took me to show their appreciation for achievement. My visit last week was a let down. The first let down was that they pushed you into their service room, even when the hotel was practically empty and we would have been happy to collect the dosa.... More

My wife and I love to visit restaurants that have earned their reputation over many years, and are now at a point where patrons swear by the place. The one thing that is guaranteed is that on such visits, the food will be so great it will make you forget everything else. And this was exactly the case when we... More
