MTR has been serving bangaloreans from quite a long time now with its yummy south indian delicacies. Every dish satisfies taste buds. The only issue is the crowd and the long wait to get table which takes away 1 star.

We enjoyed some amazing dosas and idli here for brunch. Everything came out tasting great! I'd only bought the MTR spice packets in the US, so it was interesting to learn about the history of the company as well.
