If you crave a dosa in South Bangalore, and don’t want to go to a crowded Darshini, Woodys offers a suitable alternative. Surprisingly housed in a modern looking glass and steel building, this is a family-friendly, South Indian vegetarian restaurant. The atmosphere is some significant notches above the Darshinis, but decidedly middle-class. The ground floor, which is the self-service section, is spacious, while the upper floor, which is a sit-down and eat area, is a bit claustrophobic.

The food quality varies from very good to passable – you would do better to stick to the tiffins and snacks, rather than a full meal. They serve delicious dosas – try the pessarattu, which is a dosa made out of green gram dal, the rava dosa, and South Kanara favourites including kadubu (a cone shaped idli). They also have excellent coffee and a chaat stand musters up some passable chaat.

The best time to visit Woody’s is either for breakfast or for a pre-dinner snack. A word of caution – stick to the self-service area since the service at the upper floor can be slow and frustrating. The restaurant has plenty of parking space and is open from 8:30 am until 11 pm. Woody’s is located at No. 45/1, 17th Main, II Phase, J.P. Nagar, Bangalore, ph: 26490999.
