There are 6 locations of the restaurants in KL and PJ (including the one in KLCC food court). The choice of food and the taste is on par with what you get in India. The chefs and waiters are from India and that explains the good taste and service.

I have been there several times and the place is always busy. The waiters are very helpful. It is a well cleaned place to eat. Great food for vegetarians..our order came on time and didn't have to wait much. The prices are reasonable.

I saw some reviews that the service is slow. may be it happens with few people but never happened to us. Restaurant is clean and the service staffs are really good. We regularly visit this place and never got disappointed. They have a uniqueness in their recipes and serve great south Indian food.

The quality of service was way better prior to SB revising its prices upwards. How is that possible? Waited half hour for tosai. The waiters almost always divert their attention away from you. What a disappointment.

We expected to have a good meal as we love Southern Indian food, but this exceeded our expectations. It was superb! It's a simple restaurant with excellent staff: they were able to recommend items that I probably wouldn't have tried (vegetarian 'mutton' gravy, for example) and I was so glad they did! The flavours of the food were superb. Everything... More
