We went to this restaurant because we were helping our daughter during a move to Austin and wanted to introduce her and her new roommates to south Indian cuisine. since our guests did not know what to order, we thought it would be nice to order the Chef's dinner so everyone could try a variety of dishes. Well, first the... More

The doses are wonderful. The chutneys and sambhar are tasty. We especially loved their spring dosa. Their lunch buffet is fantastic if you like South Indian food.north Indian dishes are not their speciality.

Previously it was nice but now spoiled a lot in food taste, ambiance and service. Some time even stale food is served. No Indian spicy taste at all

We are visiting Austin and so rely on reviews for our next place to eat. We went to this resto as it's got 4 star reviews. But we were so disappointed. We came for dinner and ordered meal for 2. The soup was horrible like it's chalky/ reheat and served us stale toppings. The curries were a joke. My hubby... More

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

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.).

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...
