This is one of the oldest 'brahmin' eateries in the peta., Bangalore City. It has been a haven for those seeking traditional snacks (thindi) and meals (oota) for decades and still holds an attraction to tons of diners daily. The modest, old-world ambience has changed little from the time it was set up in the late 1920s. But as someone who has eaten there several times and entertained visitors, mostly westerners there, its an unique experience of Peninsular India and its culture and cuisine. As such it may not look much but the kitchen is as clean as it gets in most of our homes. The little walk from Majestic to the eatery may be crowded but remember this is the old business/traders district where many old buildings still stand in neglect but with their historic charm and get up in tact. If anything they all this adds to the romance of dining in one of the finest 'brahmin' restaurants of the world. Highly recommended: kara bath, masala dosai and south Indian filter coffee. Now if you'll excuse me I have guests from Paris who I am taking there for a special lunch, oota. FYI it is food of the Gods! Food made in the way meant for priests, and served freely to pilgrims and visitors to the temples in Dakshina Kannada. Healthy, wholesome, tasty!!
