Sapthagiri means "Seven Hills," and this India Square spot mounts the most diverse and tasty vegetarian menu anywhere in the metropolitan area. The dosas are top notch, and encompass a range of oddities rarely seen elsewhere. An example is pesarattu upma, boasting a fermented mung-bean wrapper, and a filling of cream of wheat goosed up with black mustard seeds, pistachios, and other flavorful ingredients. The upma is also available as a dish on its own, and is definitely worth ordering. There are rare southern Indian vegetable curries, including gutti vankaya-baby eggplants immersed in a tomatoey peanut sauce. The place is crowded on the weekends, chill during the week.
