Old place. Have been a consistent customer for years now. Word of mouth propaganda had always had it good. Off late, cocky attitude of staff along with declining quality of food is well & surely felt. Finding a hair in a vada or a bonda can never to ruled out. Any feedback to them directly is not well received.

I had a fulfilling breakfast in this restaurant close to the Bangalore university campus during my visit. The quality of the food and the service were excellent.

Don't miss eating some of the authentic Karnataka breakfast dishes like idli vada, dosa, or rice bath at this place & surely you will like this & pricing is also reasonable.

It was one of my favourites but unfortunately , quality has gone down nowadays. The darshini is also small and thus you may have to sometimes eat with the plate in your hand. I visit it now for old times sake, not for the foodd

We had idlis, rice shyavige bhaath which were good.However coffee was not that good. The hygiene sanitation ,dress of the staff requires tremendous improvement. Earlier it used to be good. Still people come here to have masala dosa. OK for a quick bite as there is no place to even stand at times.

Its a stand n eat self service place. They don't accept orders until old orders are finished which is pretty ruthless don't care attitude! We'll be fighting for the place to stand on our feet n give the coupon first n they don't care... Masale dose, mosru vade is famous here. Visit if u don't care standing and eating.
