It's an ancient coffee house and one can hao only to enjoy the charisma. There is nothing more and special about this and more to it.

Try out the french fries if you get confused on what to order. I found them better than what you are served at McDonalds.

Has that old world charm, but didnt translate into the dishes for me. Ordered two dosas. Were good. The sambhar and chutney were unique. So were the pakoras. Can go here for that old-world charm, but do not expect gastronomic delights.

Like all the Indian Coffee Houses, this one too is amazing and is good place to relax after a stroll on the Mall Road.

Took a little courage to enter as at first we were the only Westerners and I was the only wpman, but no-one batted an eyelid, not even the beautifully clad waiters who seem quite dourly professional (good!) and it took a while to be attended to. It was so full of men earnestly talking in groups in a huge plain... More
