Crowded and hyped. No parking and end up waiting . Not worth the pain. Easy to miss the place. You can see a crowd in front of an old building.

Purely vegetarian south indian dishes available. had been to their branch at Indra nagar. small but fine dining. tasted almost all items. Excellent. quick service. That coffee...can't forget. all items you get without delay and no compromise to the quality. Anyone visiting Bengaluru, include MTR in your itinerary.

We went in a group for the Sunday lunch which is around Rupees 230 per person. This is a bargain as the meal that follows is a multi-course extravaganza. A man will come around with a container of bisi bele bath, curd rice, curries, puris, vegetables, sweets, and much more and will keep serving until you're stuffed. Meal will end... More

I visited MTR for breakfast. The place was crowded and had to wait for nearly 30 mins to get the table. The food is just awesome. One must try masala dosa, chow chow bath and their famous fruit salad.
