Vishnu Restaurant is an Indian restaurant in Irvine. It’s run by Ram Kadiyala and features daily curries, epic dosas, South Indian specialities and a rotating cast of complimentary pickles (latest on the agenda: apple pickles, simultaneously spicy, sour and crunchy). Even if you order the buffet, you get a mini-dosa, as you did in the past. As for the amazing hospitality, the owner is checking in on diners, leaving jugs of water on tables and checking his buffet trays seemingly every minute to ensure they’re of the utmost quality.
