A vegetarian restaurant claiming to serve South Indian food. The food I ate tasted more north Indian. My friends ate Malbar Paratha and they were happy about it. Staff are friendly.

Nothing South Indian about this place. Food is tasteless. Dosa is Horrible. Am sure the Chef and the team have no clue about South Indian food considering that most of them seem to hail from Nepal! Too expensive as well. A tasteless dosa is 10...More

Vegetarian it is; flavorful South Indian it ain't. Idlis were dough balls and the 3 condiments were flat and bland. The dosas we ordered were filled with few ingredients, served with the same 3 condiments and lacking anything to make our mouths sing. This restaurant...More

I've never eaten here in person due to the parking situation in downtown Berkeley, but I order takeout from here through UberEats about once a week. I have been continually impressed with Udupi, and find that their selections are diverse, the portions are generous, and...More

Food is good. Quite authentic south Indian taste. Service is good. The plates were freshly washed and hot. The food was good. The restaurant could be a little more cleaner. But I guess being close to the university and being a small place that's all...More

Literally the worst indian restaurant I have ever been to. Nothing about the food is south indian. Zero spice, the paratha was really oily, the idly was disgusting and absolutely nothing about this was indian food, let alone south indian food. Went with three other...More

We had food delivered, so it was probably not the best test of the quality here. Everything was fine, but no great shakes. Dosas were good but we've had better. Not an inventive menu, but no mistakes.

may be its 4pm or may be its just a bad day, but if you really know authentic indian taste, this would be a horrible place. I can't give anything less than 1*. I generally don't give my ratings by ordering only one or two...More
