The food is good. Restaurant damn simple and if your some place near just take a parcel of theirnalli omelette and crab something like we did. Food has quite a bit of dalchini in all of it apart from the other spices. Prices are from 150-250 average per dish

A small shop with a huge crowd. But in spite of that amazing service. Amazing food with authentic flavour of Madurai. A must visit if you are visiting Madurai.

We only had one meal. It was super good taste. It was recommended by a auto driver. It was very close the hotel we stayed. I would go to Madurai again and I will go that restaurant.
