Amma mess, konar mess and Kumar mess all 3 are located in the same triangulate location and anyone who visits Madurai should taste the authentic Madurai made Biriyani (made from Jeera Samba and not Basmati rice) along with the non-veg addons you will never get it any Star rated hotels. Yummy Spicy food at its best!!!

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.
