Superb South Indian fare

As the name suggests the food on offer is predominantly south Indian. Hoppers and chettinad chicken is a must try. Great service and attentive staff.

Great food with excellent ambience.But little bit costly. The service was little bit slow. Especially Uthappams and Dosas along with different chutneys must try.

Excellent ambience; good service. Little pricey. Though menu lists a number of items, the chef is willing to meet your special needs or serve items outside the menu. Do not forget to try the appams and chutneys.
