Last night we ordered the Vadas (lentil fritters)-- they arrived SOAKED in oil.. I am not kidding you, there must have been about 2 tablespoons of oil on my plate along with the fritters.
Then the Semolina Stiry fry -- uncooked and it smelled really bad
Then we tried the Dosa.. not ready to give up yet. I bite of the dosa and I gave up. The filling lacked any sort of spice, including salt
Still hungry, we ordered desserts. Well you get the picture ...
So I take back my recommendation of this place. We tried to talk to the wait staff, who looked at me as if I were from another planet.
Maybe they were having an off day, but it was one too many for me
Sorry if this offends anybody,

I never went to Udupi while I was living in DC. But, now that I am in Chicago, we go the one on Devon Ave. at least once a month. And it is always wonderful...except the masala filling was not that well spiced. My boyfriend had the tomato, chile,and onion uddapam which was fantastic--better than usual.
Have you tried Amma's in Georgetown?
