Reviewed 8 October 2013

Took a vegetarian colleague to this place on a Wednesday evening. Excellent South Indian choices. The Plain Dosa was heavenly and the Dahi Vada was really nice. Adequate amount of Samvar and Chutney; and they'd give you more if you asked.
Total check was below $30 for two people. Well-spent.
Only complaint -- the place is quite small. And it's frequented by Desi families with kids. So, if your plan is to have a quiet dinner, forget it.

I've been here a couple of times for lunch during the week. It's a hole in the wall, in the middle of a little mini-mall behind Jiffy Lube. Vegetarian only. Really fantastically interesting food. Three of us just spent a total of 35 dollars with a big tip.

My wife and I heard about this place a few years ago when travelling through Massachussetts. We spend our late summers in Maine and have made a point of stopping here on our way home. We have never been disappointed. The South Indian food is very,very good. There are not many South Indian restaurants around compared to the usual Northern Indian variety, and of all those we've tried, this one is one of the best.
Their buffet is definitely a hit. The staff was friendly and attentive.
We'll definitely be back again this year.

My family has been coming back to Udupi Bhavan for the weekend buffet. It is a great value, and consistently good quality. The buffet comes with dosai served to your table, and usually has salad, idli, vada, sambar, rasam, curries, great chutneys, and deserts. There is a good variety week to week.

This funky, no-frills restaurant is hidden in a strip plaza next to a Jiffy Lube. The atmosphere and decor aren't much to speak of - but the friendly staff and incredible food are worth the trip. The big draw here are the dosai (huge, thin crepes) - but branch out and try it all. From the onion and chilli uthaapam to the south indian vegetable korma to the incredible desserts - everything we have eaten here on our two visits has been absolutely delicious and extremely affordable.
