the taste was good but i felt the quality somehow degraded. the coffee's were more like made of water, and very less milk. masala dosa was served cold, and their paneer dosa doesn't fit in the menu. most of the south indian items taste great but non south indian items can be ignored. talking about the prices, it's a value...

Taste: Well Cooked. Served fresh. South Indian, Omelettes, pakodas & beverages are the most sought after. Atmosphere/Decor: Spacious. Crowded. Just as every other ICH, decor is old but maintained. A favorite among locals. I guess it's the the vintage feel of decor and the vibe of locals/travelers enjoying food with family/friends makes ICH legendary. Service: Prompt. Value for Money: 5/5.

If you want enjoy good south indian food this is the place as the taste is very good. But service is very slow. You can expect a few arrogant waiters. But the food taste is uncompromised. Tip Try the mutton dosa. Although it is not authentic it is still good. Otherwise cost is moderate for service. The tables facing the... More

The south indian food served here is very gòod. Rates are very reasonable. The service is great. While roaming on the mall Shimla if you need a break for sancks, consider this as a good option.

The Indian coffee house is situated in Middle bazaar in the core mall road area. We had visited the place 2-3 times for breakfast. We tried idli, omlette, mutton dosa, mutton cutlets, bread toast and coffee. The items can be rated as average to good. The toast had thick bread slices with a generous spread of butter. Cutlets were slightly... More
