The food was bland and the worst meal we have had during our stay. It was filthy and looked like it had not been cleaned in years. We walked away fearing the worst for our stomachs!

We went to this restaurant because of the listing in Lonely Planet and the food was terrible. It was the worst meal in our 54 day trip around South India. Dried out chicken tikka, which had been fried until it was dried out and almost black, hard as tile. Even the the potato chips were tasteless.

I found almost every restaurant in Madurai on the dirty side and was reluctant to be adventurous with food; however, this was a great spot to eat. The food was delicious and the owner was friendly.
