I am not very picky in food.. but this place was bad. Unhygienic, bad courtesy and poor quality food. Never again in life time

Traditionally, I come here after visiting the Balaji Temple. It is a delightful stop. The ambiance is not luxurious. Just plain furniture in a small ranch type accommodation with an Indian clothing store adjacent. What makes it special is the Udipi style dosas with curried potatoes and thick Tamil Sambhar. Very tasty and sumptuous. The Dosas is big and two... More

Place is ok , not big on ambience but the food is tasty. Oh , they do forget orders. Feels like u are in India. Since it is close to the temple , it just adds up.

Ambience and service in this restaurant is typically like Indian style..service was little poor... They urged us to place order as soon we entered the cafe.and they didn't give time to even look into menu card..somehow, idly sambar came to our mind and we ordered it.. Sambar and idly were really good. Coconut chutney was just okay.. And we ordered... More

I have been frequenting Udipi's for years. The menu is 100% vegetarian, very reasonably priced, and fits my bill for authentic Indian cuisine. The outside looks somewhat disreputable. Everything on the inside is glaringly spartan. Drink options are limited. The parking is a little awkward, although there is usually a spot somewhere, often next to a shiny new BMW or... More

I love Indian food, but...the service is horrible. I went there several times, giving them a chance. You will sit there for quite a while, until you are able to have your order taken. The servers are rude. They do not smile, ask how your food is. They don't seem to care about their jobs. They look unhappy and irritated.... More

It's tough to find good South Indian food in the U.S., but this is it. Authentic South Indian food and nice people. The atmosphere (or lack thereof) isn't for everyone, but I like it. It's a bare bones hole-in-the-wall type place, but I'm there for the food. The dosas and uttapams are my favorites, but they have a wide variety... More

This place will look shabby with inconvenient parking lot. Interiors are old and diner-like. Service will be impersonal i.e. server will not introduce himself and same server may not bring all your order and check. But, if you can get past that, food (only vegetarian) is quite delicious. Go for South-Indian dishes and stay away from dishes with Paneer. I... More

I stopped here on the way to a meeting on a Thursday night. I had been wanting to go for some time - it has a great reputation among the (sizable) Indian community in the Monroeville area. That said, I must admit, I was a little disappointed. To begin, the facility is a little off-putting. The parking lot is not... More
