Best South Indian food

If you want authentic chennai south indian food- this is the only place in Surat. The sambar is not sweet, just the way it is here in Chennai. I have heard that people come from far off places to Chennai Central for a reminder of how dosa tastes in the south, and I can see why.

Food was average, portions were smaller than expected, service indifferent. Overall a disappointment. Surat has better options for South Indian fare

I have been to chennai for more than 3 years, so I went there with big expectations. And they met my expectations upto considerable amount. They are serving only bottled water... Not at all good thing. Chennai is not like that. Also, they are not using Banana leaf or Baby onions (Sambar onions).

If a true south indian were to step into an authentic gujarati surrounding like Surat, there is one thing they should never worry about. And that is, food. Good south indian food! Truly I was mesmerized with the authenticity of flavors in the sambar and idlies. The one particular dish which blew my mind off was the Mysore Masala dosa.... More
