Coffee rocks. Ambience doesnt. The menu is not expensive at all. Ambience needs improvement, so does staff attitude.

A friend took me here on instructions from his Dad to make sure we stopped here for coffee. It was a step back in time, waiters in uniform, locals taking their time, talking, laughing, families on vacation, monkeys playing outside the door. It is in need of a.cleanup & coffee is awful but food is fast & hot & service... More

In this age of mindless Americanization of every restaurant Indian Coffee House ( ICH ) gives a welcome respite. This place has an antique touch having set up in 1950's while India was still recovering from British Raj's hangover. The wall paintings echo the same vibe.

Not having anything by which to make a comparison, we took the suggestion of a local to take coffee here. It's certainly popular with families and local business people but you couldn't help but think that it has seen better days. The waiters uniforms were dirty and the crockery could have been cleaner, but 100% for local colour!

This is wonderful place to have filter coffee and South Indian Food. The service is good and the food tasty. Prefer going before or around noon,as the food is most fresh then. Must try theie mutton dosa, jam slice and jelly and cream.

Though all the Indian Coffee Houses are famous for their South Indian Filter Coffee, this one is Awful an restaurant, Poor Coffee, badly washed cups & saucers and too crowded. Had to stand for 15 minutes for a table
