Authentic south-indian breakfast here should never be missed if you come to Vijayawada. There's a reason for a normal hotel to be rated #1 in a big city like Vijayawada.

Finally I got a chance to visit Babai hotel, I could not visit even I am frequent traveller to Vijayawada. Already heard of Babai hotel and what it is famous for. I don't find much excitement after tasting idly, dosa, poppu-pongali and pesarattu with friends. Seems it lost is legacy of taste to cater this generation.

Such a soft idli n dosi it melts automatically, one doesn't need to use his teeth for eat. Idly has wide variety of items to mix n eat like.,Chatni, karappodi,ghee,other chatni, etc. Pesarattu upma is too delicious..

Great tastes with limited owned menu. And very nice recipe combinations available in Babai Hotel, they served with little bit extra efficient and love at Vijayawada.

Its traditional restaurant since long back. Only breakfast available here. Most fantastic Idli with ghee and powder. Once you eat don't leave the taste again. It's simply superb.
