Madurai Amma Mess Near Maattuthaavani Bus Stand

Nice place for traditional Madurai Non Veg Food. Good Biriyani is basic for chicken and mutton. Specialities are Turkey Biriyani, Bone Marrow (scooped out and pasted on) omelette, Rabbit 65 etc., good for lunch and dinner.

Ayira meen (Small Fish) Currey is super here. Pepper crab roast also very tasty. If you are non-veg foodie, taste once here.

On the suggestion of our driver, we went to get the food packed from here. Veg- There is nothing here. Non Veg - Spicy and less on quantity. Mutton Sukka was shocking as the quantity was minuscule. For regulars there, they may know, but for outsiders, it may be good to verify the quantity first.

Pros: Very tasty food We believe the food does not have any agents, aginomotto, as there was no such symptoms after consumption. Get traditional items Cons: No menu for Vegetarians atleast. Quantity is very less for the cost.

Try this place if you want to get a feel of the variety that Madurai and Chettinadu Non-Veg cuisine can offer. Glance thought the menu and you will be confused on what to order, try anything and you won't be disappointed. Have your antacids ready since most of the items are greasy and spicy (and keep your diet charts down).... More

I had lunch with friends today at the newly opened Amma Mess near Maatuthavani bus stand. The guys inside told me that this is a branch of Amma Mess at Tallakulam. These guys are terrible as they are treating customers like dogs. One guy is bringing fried fish in a plate and pushing me to buy as though it is... More
