Mavalli Tiffin Room, Lalbagh Road, Bangalore Reviews

Apr 13, 2018 09:28 AM Read (via Mobile)
We had a great party here and a big family get together for my uncle made marriage anniversary. It ended in a boring party with the waste meals. Nothing special and not even sambar was good for rice. We all threw away many items, even chapatis was not good. ...Read More

Expensive but worth it
Apr 28, 2017 07:31 AM Read (via Mobile)
I visited here on one occasion with my friends for lunch. The price almost made us leave but we were reluctant. The prices were around 230 per plate and so we just decided to give it a try. They made us sit in a row, and started serving us in banana leaves. Starting with several types of sweets,...Read More

Authentic Regional food

One of the best South Indian meals I've had in recent times, this place has an old world charm, was packed to the core and have a complete orthodox feel to it. But when it comes to food and service it's top grade and mesmerizing. From authentic sabzi and grape juice to pulao, plain rice with sum...Read More

Today, we had been to MTR, the iconic and legendary destination of Benuluru.sure it was.I had the opportunity to relish all the goodies way back in'93 and later onwards. But today's experience is sorely disappointing.We preferred a mini lunch than a regular full lunch with teeming number of i...Read More

The best in Bangalore

Mavalli Tiffin Room is not your regular restaurant or food joint. Mavalli Tiffin Room or more commonly known as MTR is a tiny place that looks more like a cafeteria and less like a restaurant. What MTR is really famous for is its authentic ghee doused South Indian food. MTR has been serving p...Read More

Good Food!

I recently shifted from Mumbai to Bangalore. I had never heard of Mavalli Tiffin Room(MTF) until I heard some colleagues in the office talking about it. Soon after my colleagues took me, one morning to MTR I was taken aback by the sight. It looked like some shaddy shop and people were queuing...Read More

MTR still rules
Dec 03, 2012 12:46 PM Read
Be it a breakfast of piping hot Rava Idly/Masala Dose or the sumptuous Lunch/Dinner served in plate, MTR still rules! Over years it has managed to maintain its heritage and'ambience'. For starters it might put them off, but for someone like me, who was introduced to MTR as a kid, we relish the o...Read More

Lunch on a weekend in MTR at Forum Value Mall
Dec 19, 2011 01:09 AM Read
We reached at MTR quite in advance at around 12:40 noon so that we dont have to wait for getting a table. Later on only did I find that even if I would have come late, number of tables were amply free to be occupied.  At 12:40 saw some people still nibbling away their light bruch and then we wer...Read More

How many years back my first bite at MTR it must have been at least 45 years back and since I was in teen age the memories are not at all there but later by my 20th age that is 40 years back the FRAGRANCE OF TASTE REMEMBRANCE IS AS NEW AS TODAY. MTR means Mavalli tiffin rooms but the whole of...Read More

A Legend ... lost forever
Feb 05, 2011 02:18 AM Read
I am a true-blue BengaLuru huduga and I know my share of good hotels and restaurants. MTR was one such place that my family, friends and I loved to visit for the lip-smacking food they served - some dishes were literally Ambrosia(heaven-like). MTR was a place known for its quality, discipline an...Read More

Just Hype, Arrogance, Bad Serving & Bad Food
Oct 12, 2009 07:28 PM Read
It was the shock of life for us on visting MTR last evening. We entered around 5:00 PM knew perfectly well that it will be slightly crowded & need to get the names registered and got it done. The guy was such a maniac that anyone giving him a tip of 5 or 10 Rupees he would let them in early bypa...Read More

MTR - The famous authentic eatery
May 29, 2007 11:01 PM Read
MTR or Mavalli Tiffin Room is one of the most famous and oldest restaurants in Bangalore serving authentic South Indian Bangalorean dishes . It is located on Lalbah road and very easy to miss if you do not watch out carefully.  The building is very old and doesn't stand up to its reputation. ...Read More

Fading aura, deteriorating quality
Feb 12, 2006 02:36 PM Read
For those Bangaloreans who were used to the MTR of the old, the current establishment is a pale reflection of the old. There is more hype and image than quality. The old management insisted on the quality that was delivered and hence stuck to their adherence to the decades old practises. The new...Read More

When it is time to give your taste buds a treat and delight your pallets with delicacies, we more often than not, think of eating out. Coming from Bangalore, that should not be too much to ask for at all. Moreover we always relate eating out to lunch or dinner. What if you wake up one morning an...Read More

The Army Canteen!

The hype about MTR (or Mavelli Tiffin Room) forced me to make a beeline to their restaurant on 4th April 2002. MTR, for those of you who are not aware is a south indian 'haldiram' - the old family-run show which has donned a new image and is marketing a lot of ready-to-eat stuff, snacks, pickles...Read More
