Pune Banner

Are you a fan of South Indian cuisines? Are you desperately searching for restaurants that serve traditional Udupi or Chettinad dishes, just as they are supposed to? Missing South Indian food? No worries, if you’re in Pune, I am going to share the top authentic South Indian restaurants that serve the taste of Chennai.

Without any further adieu…

Here’s a quick guide to some of the best South Indian restaurants in Pune City that you must check out.

1.   Vaishali, FC Road

FC Road is one of the prime locations in the city, if you’re on FC road you should not miss Vaishali. Established in 1951, I know the majority of the Punekar has paid a visit to and has been bowled over by its distinctively delicious sambar. A strictly snacks-only place offering South Indian eats like idlis, dosas, and uttapams, consider yourself lucky if you get a table at one go! 

The dosas and the uttappas are breathtakingly delicious, especially the sambhar that smell so nice with the curry leaves. Try the Mysore cheese masala dosa for around  ₹170 and the onion-tomato cheese uttappas with butter are yummy when you see the cheese melting on the hot served uthappa. If you’re going there for breakfast (8 am to 10.30 am), make sure you order the Vada sambar with chutney, and don’t forget to freshly make filter coffee they serve in a small steel glass.

Pro Advice: You’ll find rush at Vaishali all day, entire year. If you need to get vacant immediately, go with a group of more than 10 people. They usually have roof top reserved tables for large groups.

2.   UpSouth, Viman Nagar (Franchise)

Satiate your love for mouth watering South Indian cuisine with Upsouth’s budget-friendly range of combos. I loved the idli vidli combo (₹95) and the Upsouth dosa combo (₹160). If you love spicy food. Then I highly recommend you to try the Upsouth podi crispy dosa. For desserts, go for the elaneer mousse. One thing that I observed especially in UpSouth is they offer pretty good combos, I mean the menu was appealing with taste-licking food.

3.   Wadeshwar, Baner (Franchise)

Many of us stroll round Vaishali until we find a place to sit, but if you don’t have the patience, head over to Wadeshwar, Baner. The large outside seating area amidst bonsai and plants makes it an inviting space for some good idlis and vadas dipped in piping hot sambar. The medu vada sambhar is dipped in hot sambhar and the vadas are soft and crispy. Overall the place is good, you can see the families around and you can even enjoy your food if you’re alone the same way I enjoyed it.

Pro Advice- You will find a rush on weekends, especially between 8 am to 10 am.

4.   Yumma Swami, Camp

This is another perfect spot I found in Pune. I talked to the owner of the restaurant Mrs. Sonal Barmecha, she said she had brought some authentic South Indian restaurants to Pune. They serve an insanely delicious range of crispy dosas, soft idilis, uttappas, and much more. Moreover, the restaurant has really cool and trendy look interiors that offer a relaxing vibe. They also have an open kitchen where you can see your food being made.

Yumma Swami is an excellent choice for all your South Indian meals. You can also lunch on their South Indian special thali, which serves around three to four courses and is an easier way to dig into their flavors. I insist you try their onion rawa sadha, which is nothing like your ordinary rawa dosas.  

5.   Iddos, Kothrud

This place was different from the rest. Iddos is known for its three unique chutneys that complement all their dishes. Iddos offers all types of South Indian food including Appe, Uttapam, Idli,  Dosa, and Sweet Paniyaram. The food is served on an evergreen traditional banana leaf, which makes the food even more appetizing! The restaurant offers the option of enjoying a hot meal in an indoor or outdoor setting.
