Simply a delight MTR is authentic, accessible and terrific. I keep going back not only because of the food but also their team. No fuss, just great.

Having completed my assignment early, my escort suggested lunch. At first glance was reluctant but then cajoled into going. Wonderful service, sumptuous repast, fantastic taste and unlimited servings. Delcious food and simple and light on the stomach. If in Bengaluru, must visit place. Long queues outside suggest the popularity of the place.

Whether for breakfast or lunch or dinner...this place is heavenly. Rava Idli and Masala Dosa are to die for topped with a good heap of butter. The lunch and dinner spread is lavish and one gets to sample all the authentic South Indian delicacies. My favourite items in the lunch menu include poori sagu, bisibelebath and mini masala dosa.

You should definitely visit MTR once for a breakfast.. Nothing great but there is so much history to this place. It's an old fashioned breakfast place with long queues at all times. Sit/stand and wait der for your turn and experience this once. Though I found the food strictly average Tip : You have to share table and many items... More
