A small restaurant run by two brothers opened its door in Bangalore in 1924. Almost a century later, MTR has become a household name not only in India but in Kuala Lumpur, Dubai, Muscat and Singapore. The vegetarian restaurant in Brickfields has an air-conditioned dining area with a selection of authentic South Indian treats. Prices tend to be slightly higher, compared to other nearby restaurants in Brickfields. But old favourites such as shavige bath and idli, made using special recipes, make the extra couple of ringgits worthwhile.
