Amba bhavan

If you follow me, you know that matunga is my spot! Tried Amba Bhavan here for the first time and it only reinforces the fact that this area doesn’t have any place that serves mediocre food!
Amba bhavan
I tried their idlis, upma, dosa and masala milk.
Idlis – sofffffftt and how! Sambhar is ok but chutney is really good. A tad bit of spice makes it awesome.

Dosa – more on the crisper side.

Masala milk – good amount of pista in it but a little over sweet.

I know I will be coming back here. And so I recommend this to you too.

I have tried the masala dosa, the mysore masala, the upma and the idli here and all are phenomenal. His sambhar is top notch!

Sambhar
The dosas here are the perfect combination of crisp and melt in your mouth. They have that crunch and are sooooo tasty. The aloo in the masala dosa is quite different than regular masala dosa. Not too spicy, not overly dry. And almost mashed to a large extent.

The mysore masala is the one with red chutney and filling inside. This is so famous and gets over pretty early.
The upma here is out of this world – very light..Not too much ghee going on. Has some tomato too. Served fresh and piping hot.

The idlis are amazing too – soft, fluffy and don’t reek of soda!
Recommend this place for a quick, inexpensive south indian meal.

Another great find in Matunga. I tell you – probably most of my favorite places will be here! This store is always crowded and I’m sure that’s because it’s a hot favorite in the area.

The whackiest dosa you can think of is what you should try here. I’ve played safe and tried only mysore masala but looking at everyone’s order around me, I was super tempted to order so many others. The dosa is served with sambhar, coconut chutney and a red chutney seemed to be full of tomato and garlic. So yummy! And the dosa is quite huge – definitely wasn’t my cup of tea to finish it all by myself.

Mysore Masala Dosa

On my wishlist is the Chinese dosa here.

Do try this place out and I’m sure you’ll find your favorite dosa here. Value for money guaranteed.
