Good Food

The restaurant is located in a busy area full of such messes.The food is good with lots of choice for non vegetarians.The only thing I did not like was the non transparent billing.But the food is awesome.

This mess is quite good for non veg eaters.. I loved mutton kola urundai.. also enjoyed their chicken briyani. I felt quantity is less for the price ! Staff were resonably good and ambiance was ok. Can explore once!

Food was tasty and service was pretty good. The downside is the small portions and higher charges... Overall it was a good though slightly expensive experience (considering its a mess sort of establishment)

After seeing so many reviews on Amma mess, myself and my husband went to the restaurant. We ordered pepper chicken which cost about 140 Rs / plate. But the quantity was very less.
