During our recent trip to the Bay area over the Thanksgiving holidays, we decided to try dinner at Udupi. We chose this restaurant as it was close to University of California at Berkeley so we could swing by the University as well. The restaurant is...More

A vegetarian restaurant claiming to serve South Indian food. The food I ate tasted more north Indian. My friends ate Malbar Paratha and they were happy about it. Staff are friendly.

Nothing South Indian about this place. Food is tasteless. Dosa is Horrible. Am sure the Chef and the team have no clue about South Indian food considering that most of them seem to hail from Nepal! Too expensive as well. A tasteless dosa is 10...More

Vegetarian it is; flavorful South Indian it ain't. Idlis were dough balls and the 3 condiments were flat and bland. The dosas we ordered were filled with few ingredients, served with the same 3 condiments and lacking anything to make our mouths sing. This restaurant...More

This is not an elegant place but, in terms of the food, it is the real deal. It is 100% veggie, not "with vegetarian options". All the items we chose - on our three visits - were tasty and spiced according to our requests, not...More

If you know South Indian food you will hate everything here. The idlis were obviously made in a muffin tin, that they turned upside down, and had the consistency of a dough ball. The coconut chutney was like coconut milk with no salt or green...More

Literally the worst indian restaurant I have ever been to. Nothing about the food is south indian. Zero spice, the paratha was really oily, the idly was disgusting and absolutely nothing about this was indian food, let alone south indian food. Went with three other...More
