It was delicious. If there can only be one South Indian restaurant in the area, I'm glad it's Udipi.
Almost all the patrons I saw appeared to be of Indian descent, many in traditional dress (always a good sign). Dosas are first-rate, great curries and chutneys. Baingan bartha (mashed roasted eggplants with peas) was a stand-out—long on black pepper and ginger. The breads and rice were perfectly executed, especially the puri.
This place is definitely worth the drive from town.
