Plenty of wait staff, friendly, and very helpful. You can have the food as hot as you want it. Will return in the near future.

Unlike many of the other Indian eateries in the area, Udupi Bhavan truly presents food from both South and North India. Typically it is only North Indian food that is represented in Indian restaurants across the state. The atmosphere itself is also unique given the close-nit, pay before you eat model. Personally, I find the environment more connecting and open... More

The restaurant is simple without much atmosphere; no frills. The pull is the delicious vegan yummy variety. The Masala Dosa is wonderful, in fact, all the Dosas are great. The breads, curries, and house specials are all genuinely worth a try. We didn't care for the desserts or drinks, but pitchers of water are available for the taking.

This restaurants had decent food with big portions but the atmosphere was not what I expected. Upon arrival, I ordered my food including that I wanted 2 lassis.Within this time the waitstaff did not make it clear you had to serve yourself beverages. We only found this out when other regular costumers were serving themselves. You even have to pick... More

My sister had previously visited and since going I'm glad she made the recommendation. We received a warm welcome upon entering. Whatever is lacking in ambience is made up for in food (both quality & timeliness), cleanliness, and overall friendliness of the staff. True to other comments, it is somewhat self service-(you get your own drinks and get food when... More

It has zero atmosphere and no frills, the food, however, is superlative and freshly made. I recommend their paneer and their unusual bread selection. We look forward to dining there again soon.

Udupi Bhavan serves amazing South Indian vegetarian food, so don't come expecting typical Indian fare served elsewhere--some of the dishes are similar but the flavors are definitely different. This is a no frills, utilitarian, simple place in terms of ambiance but the food is delicious. It's vegetarian only, and they don't accept American Express.

It's all about the food here. Magnificent all-vegetarian dining with friendly service. We nearly always get takeout.

We were taken to Udupi Bhavan by two friends from India who told us this is the tastiest Southern Indian food they have found in the area. We feasted on tasty dosas, uthapam and many other dishes, dips and condiments. Those in our group who were vegetarian and gluten free had much to enjoy from a varied, extensive selection! The...

Pleaseant surprise. My son was looking for a Indian place on Mad Cow and came across this place. Food was wonderful in a unique place. Food is served on plastic bowls but don't be fooled.
