Vidyarthi Bhavan is an old charm eatery located in the hustling and busy Gandhi Bazaar Main Road, Basavanagudi.

It has been popular with the old timers and continues to be popular with the new generation as well, the huge number of people who wait for a seat whenever you go there is a proof for that.
