Yes, that is how it should be. But no one follows it. Also, there is a Service Charge charged to the customer in most places. Why?

GATI had a tie up with the Pista house, Hyderabad for distribution of Haleem in India. You can book it on the GATI website and get the delivery the next day and fresh. Minimum order was for a kg for around 600 buks. Check out the GATI webpage if they still deliver this season.

I'll be in Bangalore soon and would love to visit Vidyarthi Bhavan. Haven't been there in years! How is it doing these days? Still crowded I'm guessing .

Also anyone been to Haagen Dazs in Indranagar? I've heard the ice-creams are out-of-this-world delicious.

Yes , still crowded and the same taste. If you are free , go on a weekday morning when it is relatively free and less crowded. Mouth watering already

Try Natural Ice-cream next door instead of Haagen Dazs, (leave something to try when in the US, but then there are so many other choices!).

Ah! Good to hear the taste is still the same! Will definitely go on a weekday morning (I'm free everyday as I'm on a holiday )

Good to know. Will try that as well.

Would love to meet some fellow BHPians in Bangalore, I'll post in the meet-up section once I am in Bangalore!

I am no big food critic, but beg to differ on the taste part. Taste has gone down but it is still better than the roti ghar's and such! If you are planning on Masala Dosa only then CTR (or Shri sagar as it is called now) in Malleshwaram is better! If you are aware of the place you can give it a try.

Place is still ok but I dare say it's not as good as it used to be, our last visit wasn't good on the stomachs I did not like the Sagu Dosa too.

If you're in that area try Brahmins Coffee Bar (still great with just 4 items on the menu Idly, Vada, Kahara baath and kesari baath plus coffee).
Do try New Modern Hotel for the dosas - excellent!

I've heard Mahalakshmi Tiffin Room on DVG Road (road opposite Vidyarthi Bhavan) is also good, yet to try this.

CTR is good too. It is not fair to compare roti ghar with Vidyarthi Bhavan.
Taste might have gone down , but it is still different from the otjher hotels. Blame the excess use of fertilizers and pesticides for the detriorating taste

Vidyarthi Bhavan dose requires a bit of getting used to. One must be able to handle all that excess oil (or whatever they pour over it)
Brahmins coffee bar is in Chamrajpet, yeah awesome idly and crisp vada. NMH is in between Sajjan Rao circle and Minerva Circle right ?

Brahmins coffee bar is on Ranga Rao road, Shankarpuram, Chamarajpet also is nearby and so is Basavangudi
and yes spot on with location of NMH. We usually visit on the way back from Brahmins, have Masala Dosa there and return via JC Road.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. Brahmins' Coffee Bar looks like a great place to eat some nice Idli and Vada! It seems to have very good reviews on tripadvisor.

I thought they used butter on the dosa? Last time I was at VB (in 2008) they used to bring the dosas out with the butter still visible on top.

People who love authentic Italian cuisine can visit Pasta Street on Cunningham Road. Been there last week & it was an absolute treat

Google Maps say's "Closed" for Brahmins Coffee Bar Near Shankar Mutt. I've never seen this kind of comment on Google Maps before. Has the place closed down? It's 12:45 pm now; are they open only for breakfast and at tea time?

Possibly that's the reason, I guess they open in the morning and then again in the evening, the items on their menu are more suited for these times

The place is open for between 6:30 AM to 11:30 AM and again evening from 3:30 PM till 6 PM I guess. Probably thats why you see it as closed on google maps.
