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!

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.
