Dosa with ghee & gunpowder - this is the place !

LOCATION - Cafe Mysore is located at King Circle Matunga . A famous south Indian cuisine joint ; it is a landmark in it self known for serving quick on the go breakfast items ; frequented by students as there are many schools & colleges in the vicinity & also service class people looking for affordable yet healthy filling meals .

AMBIENCE- Simple , ?no frill , no drama , a little cramped ?& noisy when the seats are full . You have to wait for 1/2 - 1 hour in line over the weekends as it is packed inspite of it being spread on ground & 1st floor .

FOOD - Matunga being a mini south India it is flooded with joints serving cuisines from down south , hence Cafe Mysore has serious competition from the like of Ramashray , Arya bhavan , Shree Sundars , Idli house etc . But inspite of everything it has consistently maintained its quality which attracts foodies from all over Mumbai . As I stay close by this has been a frequent place for my family for ?a hearty sunday brunch ?. We order the idli wadas , dosas , ragi masala dosas , curd rice , pinapple sheera , chaas always . Their mulgapuri (gunpowder ) is very fresh served with ghee . Also I like the taste of their sambar which is not too sweet .

SERVICE - Quick , polite , precise , no nonsense .

OVERALL -Decent place but a little over priced .

Great food, terrible service

I have been going to Cafe Mysore for over a year now. Here is my unbiased view of the place.

The food tastes great. All those who are looking for authentic Kannada food, don't look any where else. For me, the south Indian thali they provide during lunch is the best. I like this place because the food they cook here tastes exactly like it does in Bangalore/ Mysore. I know because I was born and bought up in Bangalore and have spent over 20 years there before moving to Mumbai. The taste of the food brings back fond memories.

The downside is that the service is at best average. The guy who greets you at the entrance to put you in a queue basically yells at you. One time, I asked if there was a table in the AC section, he just blurted "No, no AC"!!. Judging by his reaction, I thought the AC section was closed. Later I saw people sitting inside the AC, so when I prompted him again, he said its full and it will take 25 to 30 mins (still yelling). Ironically, we got the table in the next 2 mins.

He was basically discouraging people from going to the AC section so that he could reduce the queue. For a hotel with this legacy, to be lacking in basic customer etiquette, was highly disappointing to say the least.

They are also terribly understaffed, and the waiters again lack basic etiquette. They even grimace when you ask for an extra item post billing.

So you never really feel welcomed there and you would be lucky if you had a good experience at the hotel. I have now slowly started avoiding the place by substituting it with the next door Madras Cafe who are far more customer friendly, despite the large crowds.

But I still recommend you try the place once and I hope your service experience betters mine.

South Indian Food

Matunga actually is a congregation of many such simple restaurants which serve out-of-the-world South Indian cuisine. Cafe Mysore happens to be one to fit the above requirement of greatness, established by the family of the pioneer of Udipi restaurants in Mumbai, A Rama Nayak. Seating arrangement in 2 levels, A/c [upper level] and Non A/c. I prefer to sit at the lower level on the old world table-bench sitting. On your left there a few hand painted sign boards, on your right hand side are some print outs pasted on the mirror giving out some information of the specialty of this restaurant. On the bottom of the menu card, printed in bold, it says that the owner of the restaurant also eats here. Dilkhus Dosa happens to be his favorite.

Great Food

There is no greatness where there is no simplicity thus spake Leo Tolstoy. Matunga actually is a congregation of many such simple restaurants which serve out-of-the-world South Indian cuisine. Cafe Mysore happens to be one to fit the above requirement of greatness, established by the family of the pioneer of Udipi restaurants in Mumbai, A Rama Nayak. Seating arrangement in 2 levels, A/c [upper level] and Non A/c. I prefer to sit at the lower level on the old world table-bench sitting. On your left there a few hand painted sign boards, on your right hand side are some print outs pasted on the mirror giving out some information of the specialty of this restaurant. On the bottom of the menu card, printed in bold, it says that the owner of the restaurant also eats here. Dilkhus Dosa happens to be his favourite. Well, coming down to basics, my list of favourite items is pretty long starting from Upma, Podi Idli, Bisibele Bhath, Dosa's and please don't forget to have the Pineapple Sheera, its mind blowing. Come here for simple, non-greasy South Indian food, eat to your heart's content and enjoy the spread!

Always special

Once waiting for a lifetime at cafe madras, i decided to have my breakfast here. Its a hidden gem located just opposite to madras cafe. It also has a A/c section located above We had steam idli, dosa, sheera and jackfruit leaf idli. All were yummy and superb. The sambar and chutney provided were yum! The sheera was the show stopper!The service was good too. The people sitting around were enjoying the meal at their best The Best of the lot was its filter coffee! I recommend this place for all those who waste hours waiting outside cafe madras. Just come here and you wont be disappointed for sure!
