This place is a fun eating place provided your definition of fun includes long waiting as well! Jokes apart, get there on a non weekend, non peak hour if you want to relish the south indian delicacies and burp thereafter!

Authentic tamil food and at unbelieveably reasonable prices. Do try the pessarettu and NEVER leave without a filter coffee. Servers are courteous and paan offered at payment counter just tops up your evening
