The dosas here are savory. We had manchurain idli as appetizers - mouth watering. Mysore masala dosa was my favorite - the sambar was delicious

Some of the best Indian food in the Chicago-land area is not in the city... but in Schaumburg and the northwest burbs. They have the largest population of eastern Asians outside of Devon Ave. The food at the Schaumburg Udupi is proof of their presence.

I have eaten at both locations now and I much prefer the Schaumburg restaurant. The menu is far more diverse in Schaumburg and the food is of a higher quality. The paneer makhani is exellent! The flavor is strong and the sauce is smooth and creamy. We get it every time we visit! I also highly recommend the lamb korma and any biryani dishes. All the veggies are fresh and the sauces are full of flavor and spice! The portions are generous and meant for sharing. If you still have room, I highly recommend the rasmalai for dessert.

This place is wonderful for those new to southern Indian food and the experienced dinner. The staff might not be the most attentive, but they are happy to answer questions. Take advantage of their lunch buffet if you want to try a little of everything. Only be prepared for a food coma afterwards...

The atmosphere is bright and welcoming. They have enough seating for large parties and willingly reserve tables in advance if you call ahead.

Unlike their Devon Ave. location, this Udupi does serve meat dishes. They still have many more vegetarian/vegan options than meat dishes, but this is a difference from their other location. Just something to consider if you visit with vegetarian individuals. I imagine they keep food separated during preparation, some purists may have concerns about contaminated food.

I still can't recommend this place enough! Hands down my favorite Indian restaurant!

This restaurant is popular for dosas. The service is average but I love the ambience- very open and bright. The Masala dosa and Mysore Masala dosa are delicious. However the onion dosa and rava dosa (both with potatoes) are a disappointment. These dosas were bland and lacked flavour. Among the appetizers, the iddly machurian are extraordinary and very unique.

They are priced around $12/person for buffet and the spread isn't that great( especially if you are a vegetarian). The service was awful. They did not refill until we were ready to get done and they seemed to make food in portions which basically lost its consistency. For ex-- chopsuey was much more saltier and spicer the second helping around than first.
With so many choices in Schaumburg, would keep this as a last option.
