I loved this little hole-in-the-wall family-owned restaurant. Took my wife and three children. We were seated right away by the friendly hostess, and poured over the extensive menu. My kids got a kid's dosai (a big crepe) filled with cheese, and my son the rice...More

Udupi has a nice buffet on weekdays, but their weekend buffet is massive. For a few dollars more than weekdays, there are many more entrees from which to choose. It is a vegetarian restaurant, with the cuisine being Asian Indian. There are a few dishes...More

Yes, I do appreciate Indian cuisine and am drawn to the Southern Indian style more because of its focus on vegetables rather than meat. To that end, most of the dishes are actually vegan and many are, or can be, gluten free. The location somewhat...More

Great spot to enjoy authentic Indian food. Great service and staff. Would've given a 5 star but there's not much of a selection for diners who are not able to enjoy spicy. Otherwise good spot to eat.

I was visiting my daughter and she loves this place. She is vegan and her boyfriend gluten free so this is the perfect spot for them. I ordered aloo gobi and it was very good. Spicy but good. It is kind of off the beaten...More
