The video was shot in one of Bengaluru's iconic eateries - Vidyarthi Bhavan - famous for its south Indian dishes like dosa and idli. It showed a waiter loading plate after plate, full of hot dosas, onto his arm and carrying them around to various tables with ease. He had a total of 16 plates on one arm while he unloaded them onto tables with his free hand.

Anand Mahindra's post garnered a flood of responses from Bengaluru residents, who excitedly told him it was their favourite place to get dosas.

“This is my most favourite dosa at #Vidyarthibhavan Bengaluru. People wait here in queue for an hour or two to have his dosa. Unbelievable masala dosa and chutney and it is part of Bengaluru heritage,” a Twitter user replied.

“Not to forgot the Centre of Gravity of every plate is different as the masala’s contents may vary from place to place! That gentle man is a born engineer than a waiter sir!” another said.

The Vidyarthi Bhavan has been a famous place for localites in Bengaluru, and was recently in the news when Starbucks co-founder Zev Siegl visited the legendary restaurant and tried a cup of traditional filter coffee.

The eatery also made headlines when it shared a picture of Britain's Prime Minister Rishi Sunak enjoying a meal at the restaurant when he had visited the city.
