The age-old Eatery
Venkataramana Ural, from Udupi, set this up in early 1943-44. He Passed on to the hands of his brother Parameshwara Ural, the restaurant bloomed to its demand.
In 1970, Vidyarthi Bhavan was taken over by Ramakrishna Adiga. What changed was just the management, but the name, tradition, and recipes remained the same so were the services of many of the employees.
Currently, his son, Arun Adiga heads this place.
