Nice vegetarian restaurant

This is pure vegetarian restaurants so you don't have to ask which dishes have meat it in. Lots of choices (north indian/south indian) but south indian stuff is good (e.g. Dosai, Idli etc.).

I recently had dinner here with family and friends, we had several vegetarians in our group so we decided to visit Madras Pavilion. I was happy when we entered to see cricket on TV, and the rest of the restaurant was clean, spacious and inviting. Our server was very friendly, patient and helpful with suggestions for our group. The food... More

We visited this place when we went to Austin. We were really homesick and this restaurant just answered our woes. We had a yummy South Indian meal and loved it. Being Travelers from India, we weren't too sure of the taste, flavours but this place proved us wrong. Visit this place for some good and authentic Indian cuisine. The ambiance... More

Simply Terrible! We went for dinner, and I went after almost 8 years and I should not have ventured into it. The place is such a mess and Gives Indians a bad name, Food should be a experience, the food - Dinner was just terrible, and not even reflect rich heritage and variety of Indian food South India has to...

I went to this hotel on sep 1st and seeing a pure veg restaurant in this part of US was very rare. The lunch buffet was very good an I loved their rava masala dosa. The service was very courteous and the ambience was also really good. overall, it was a very good experience.

This is a good restaurant where I went atleast once every week for lunch or dinner. The service was great and you can order any variety of dosa during lunch along with your buffet and they will make it for you. The prices are reasonable and nice atmosphere.

Pretty much the only true south indian restaurant in the Austin Metro Areas. They offer a decent lunch buffet, which has lately made it the best restaurant in the chain. The tiffins and north indian entrees are all good, but just not something you would write home about. The service is usually really quick and the staff is very courteous... More

Picked up my food to go while here on a business trip. The host answering was very helpful, I inadvertently ordered something very spicy and he helped me order something a little more mild. He was very friendly when I picked up my food, we had a very pleasant conversation. I ordered the baby eggplant curry (medium spice, but watch... More

This place is the closest you can get to South Indian food in central texas. They make exquisite sambhar, rasam and chutneys. They are known particularly for their dosas. If you feel like simple but filling fod, stop by this place.

While In Austin visiting friends and we decided to hit up the Madras Pavilion. Now I should preface this and state that I'm in NO way a vegetarian in any sense and this place rocked my world! I couldn't remember the names of what we had (we had 4 or 5 different dishes) but every one was better than the... More
