For people who expect a good dining experience, please dont go here. But, if food and food alone matters to you. This is the best place to be. The chairs are cramped, the air hot and humid, the crowd overwhelming, servers shouting, less arm space to sit and even you need to shout at times to get the food. But... More

We were expecting a lot from the famous Chettinad style food and that meant our expectations were sky high when we picked this place from among the top 10 list. While the past reviews did set our expectations in terms of the ambience but the food did not live up to our expectations and hype. We felt that the food... More

Mutton Chukka one of the best. Fish fry is must also Prawn thokku is a must have. Try Brain Roast you may surely not dislike. Vegetarian... More

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
