Keep away – Went there for dinner at their new location on Church St. The food was greasy and awful, and the service was terrible. We are never going back to this dump again. I was sick after eating there.
Good, cheap Indian – My friend recommended this place and it is a great value and great food! I love the pancake-style dish filled with potatoes, onions, etc. This was my first experience eating South Indian cuisine and it was delicious. Don't go here if you're expecting the typical Indian curry. I'd say the only downside is the ambiance...and they didn't seem to have the heater on when I was there last time (cold winter night). Also service is kind of slow, and the servers don't really come back and check on you once they've given you your food.
we love udipi! – My husband and I and all our friends love Udipi Cafe. We go for birthday dinners, lunches, whenever we can. We often save room for dessert and go to the Middle Eastern place next door for dessert and belly dancing.
Be careful all Indian restaurants are rated 4 or more on 5 – There is no Indian restaurant that does not have a 4 / 4.5 star review. Pl be careful. We are an unethical breed of people and inflate our ratings. Least realising that all indian restaurants end up being 4.5 on 5. Pl use word of mouth and personal discretion to visit all of these restaurants.
I wish health and happiness in yr experimentation with food.
This restaurant has gotten great reviews but I don't know why. – The service was not very good - we had to ask for ice for a warm coke. There are much better vegetarian Indian restaurants - try Woodland close to N. DeKalb Mall. I've been here twice and will never go back.
Excellent food , cheap prices! – We headed to Udipi cafe and were not disappointed. What a wonderful lunch, we arrived a little late in the afternoon and the buffet was closed, so I ordered the dinner 'small plates' where one gets a taste of a few dishes, it was lovely, filling and light. The service isnt always very professional, but, we got what we wanted in a timely manner, and the staff were polite. The decor is a bit scruffy, but, hey! you cant have it all!!! and I prefer good food to decor any day :)
Parking outside wasnt an issue either. We will def. be back.
Parking attendant left a bad taste. – My friends and I were planning on going to Istanbul Cafe which is next door. I noticed UDAPI so I parked there and went in to check out the menu. It looked very good and I had also heard great things about the restaurant. I went to get my friends who had started walking towards Istanbul Cafe. The parking attendant (at least that is who I am assuming it to be) stopped me and told me that I could not park there. I told him that I was going to grab my friends so we could eat at Udapi and then I would move my car. He became stern and told me that I could not park there. So I moved my car and he told me that I could not park there either so I asked him for a better location to park. He became beligerant with me saying that I could not park at the lot. So I decided to move my car infront of Istanbul Cafe and eat there instead. The parking lot is a public parking lot and I did not see any valet signs or any reserve signs. So at the end of the day I really don't know if he was the attendant or not. But if you get past the attendant then the restaurant is probably good according to all the reviews written. Next time I am in the area I might go back if and only if the attendant is not there. So good luck.
perhaps the worst service i've ever had – a friend and i tried this restaurant last weekend and were amazed at the terrible service we received. the wait staff could not have been more apathetic, nor the buffet less appetizing. i do not recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Just Like Mom's – I felt like I was eating mom's home cooking when I ate at Udipi a few weeks ago. The sambhar was excellent, as was the coconut chutney. Dosas were large, thin and crisp. The masala inside was fantastic! The menu had a mix of traditional south indian favorites and mumbai street food (pani puri, excellent!)This was a great find since mom's home cookin' is back up north! Will definitely be back again and again.
Wonderful food! 4 Kudos! – You don't have to be a cultured person to enjoy this restaurant. Everything is very light, yet filling, just the right amount of herbs and spices... I love this place. It's not fancy, but you will feel very exotic while eating here. I try to get there at least once a week!
PS- It is the wait staff's custom to not disturb you during your meal. To get their attention, simply wave, and they will be right over to help you. If you ask me, that's nice for a change!
