A haunt for veggie veterans of Bangalore (specially south bangalore), this restaurant hidden in middle of gandhi bazaar calls out aloud with its lush and mouth watering crisp masala dosas. Limited options with unlimited appetite, this place which mainly focussed on students of colleges around basavangudi, still is a meeting point for much of crowds.. Seniors begin their day with...

This restaurant is one of the best known places in Bengaluru for ‘Masale Dose’ (spelt as written here, in Kannada). People come here to have ‘Dose’ at any time of the day (keep in mind the restaurant timings!) whether it is for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner! There are other minimum snack items which are ordered invariably prior to having... More

Vidyarthi Bhavan literally translates to "Students Place" for eating in Basavanagudi or Gandhi Bazaar. One who knows about South Bengaluru will definitely know about Vidyarthi Bhavan as they make such an awesome breakfast and Dosa's in particular that no one would ever forget the taste and the texture of Dosa. Any Bengalurian living in any part of the world would... More

The restaurant offers other delicacies like Vada, chow chow bath, kesari bath etc but they are usual taste. However their marquee dish people flock the restaurant for is Benne Masala Dosa. Go for it. It is a must do while you are in Bangalore. The Benne Masala Dosa served is very different from the usual Masala Dosa offered in other... More

The crispy Dosa of Vidyarthi Bhavan is a must for you if you visit Bangalore. My first tryst with this lovely place was highly rewarding. In spite of the large crowd of the Dosa lovers who visit this place everyday, I love to visit this place when ever I go to Jayanagar. The idli, Vada and Upma of this place... More

I visit this place very often. Last visited in 2014 and after that yesterday. Just loooved their benne dosa. 'Loved' with a d as i was very disappointed after yesterday's visit. Minimal butter on dosa. No flavour of butter which is the main reason I visit this place. The chatni was bland. And too much green chilly in it. Dosa... More

City of Bangalore (or Bengaluru) is a host to thousands of masala dosa (indian Crepe) outlets. It would be therefore difficult to figure out what places are good for a tourist to visit. The traditional South Bangalore has some of the best restaurants that make these Dosas. One among them is the Vidyaarthi Bhavan (that simply means a place for... More
