Found this place overrated. The place is small congested, however it was told that this place has got extremely delicious food. We ordered around 11 dishes out of which 3 were awful and remaining were just ok. I would rather suggest Ramashray restaurant which is near the Matunga Station. Taste of the food was not that great, further we found... More

If you are eager to dig into authentic South Indian delicacies, Cafe Madras is the right place. Located mid way between South Mumbai and the Western and Central Suburbs, it is always delightful to walk into Cafe Madras. The ambience is perfect for a family get together. The food is indeed mouth watering. The taste of sambar, rasam and all... More

Closely put up tables, steel crockery, the way they serve coffee all reminds you of the 90's! Go for the specials always, they never fail to impress.

Small place which serve great south indian food at reasonable price. Guess what, more Gujarati people visit this place than south indian. A must visit place if you are a fan of south indian food. Be prepared to wait for at least 40-45 minutes on a weekend. So plan accordingly.

Iconic restaurant close to Kings circle. Serves good South Indian food at inexpensive rates. Weekend mornings could be crowded and you might have to wait for 15-20 mins. Try coming by 8 in the morning on weekends.

What can you say of a South Indian restaurant in Mumbai which calls itself Madras Café, but you hear Tullu being spoken all around you ? Before you dismiss it as a phoney, be informed that this little corner (literally !) serves what is arguably the best wadas, dosas and the rest of South Indian cuisine north of Bangalore .You...

If you are looking for a vibrant , small , reasonably priced place serving a range of udipi south indian fare, don't look any further. Its a quick eat and move place and dont expect a leisurely brunch. Wait time during peak hours can go up to 30-45 minutes. All the dosa, idli, vada items are very tasty .My personal... More
