Udupi has been my goto place for a while, either solo or with groups of friends. For a while now the buffet choice has been diminishing and the quality just feels somewhat off. Recently I decided to stop for lunch and talk to the staff...More

I had such a dosa craving I went to a Chandler joint one night and Udupi the next. While the one in Chandler (Woodlands) feels authentic, almost like being in Mumbai, Udupi is decidedly upscale without being fancy. No white tablecloths here, but beautifully prepared...More

Whether you come to Udupi for lunch, brunch, or dinner, you’ll find great food in the southern Indian style. Don’t forget to say “yes” to one of the delicious dosas, with spiced potato. You will be offered some, so go lightly with all the rest...More

We had the idli, medu vada and sada dosa here. The quality is top notch and the price is decent. The Groupon 30% cash back offer made the deal even sweeter. Highly recommended.

Many people we talk with don't know what to expect of an Indian, vegetarian restaurant, and have negative preconceptions. This place has good service, great food and fair prices. After eating there we always feel great!
