Spicy & tasty food. Unique flavors.

It is a very good restaurant for spicy South Indian non-veg food. It is better to stick to that. The soups (try Mutton Sigappi), starters (Singapore Fish) and main course were very tasty with unique flavors. They tend to spice it up a lot and if you don't like hot food, better to tell them up... read more

Back in 2012 this restaurant one of the best in Coimbatore. Now quite often they do not have the food on the menu. Also the quality of the food has definitely gone down.

This place is owned by Late Chef Jacob, who is quite famous in Chennai for his restaurant.Thus when I found that out I thought it is apt to pay a visit. You have valet parking. The ambiance is quite nice. Its a house turned into restaurant, with comfortable seating space. I found a lot of people having power lunch here.... More

Nice little restaurant specialises all types of dishes including cretin ad, Thai, Chinese, North Indian, etc. Angori Kababs and Nellore chicken with curd rice are mouth watering. The quantity is less and little bit pricy. They have ballet parking so need not worry about parking on this busy road. Worth visiting once in a while. Always check the bill before... More

Brownie with hot chocolate fudge -... More
