I recently went here with a friend. The food is fabulous. This is the best Indian Restaurant in Western Pa. in my opinion. They use many delicious spices and we enjoyed the sampler. They make this wonderful potato bread that you can dip with. Even the latte was superb. We plan to return soon!

The ratio of tasteful decor to tasteful food is lower than one mainly because the quality of the latter is outstanding, and partly because the former is the sum of two rows of bare-bones diner-style laminated-top dimly-lit tables in bare-walled surroundings. Upon entering, the host does not appear for a while, and when he does, he is almost bewildered by... More

Everything I have ever had here is so good. Actually all I ever order is dosa's, Aloo Gobi and Palak Paneer. So good I've never tried anything else. Order the poori's.

Very closely located to S V Temple Pittsburg , Udipi Cafe provides tasty authentic South Indian Vegetarian dishes. Heavily crowded guests waiting time is long. However it deserves waiting. Major disadvantage is the wash /Rest Room which is not adequately provided. We enjoyed our Lunch and Dinner there.

I am not vegetarian, neither is my husband. We come here when we have a craving for tasty curries and spicy chutnies. Love this place. My husband says "When I want Indian in Pittsburgh, this is where I go." Wish they would fix the lock on the ladies bathroom, though.

Went out to dinner with a vegetarian. Udipi tastes so good you willn't miss meat. Best to order lots of different dishes and share. Be sure and check on the level of spicy you are comfortable with.

There was nothing wrong with our meal. This is more of a neighborhood restaurant. Casual. Although it is hardly a neighborhood filled with Indian residents. Reassuring was a long table full of about 12 Indian customers. The food looked fantastic. Some of ours did, also. But we made tepid choices. The food was not thrilling. Sauces would help. There were... More
