Enjoy Idli & Dosa and much more at this place. It is close to Meenakshi temple and opposite a shopping mall.

The idlis, dosas and onion uthappams are the best here. If available please try the Pongal too. Service is mostly good.

Idlys here are so soft and white. It is provided with 4 chatneys and sambar .All verities of dosas availability. But situated on the one way busy west masi St. So car parking is difficult. Except rice based idly& dosas other items not available. Open only from 7.00pm to10.30pm.
