Not one of the most hygenic and fancy outlet. Food is quite authentic and delicious. Service is quick. Depending on time of the day and number of people, one would have to wait anyhwere from 10-30 minutes to get in.

We where recommended this place by a local. We went on a Sunday morning and it was very busy so we had to sit with people that we did not know. This was great as they had recommended different foods to us. The food was great and we really enjoyed. I would recommend going early on a Sunday.

A small but bustling place which has always got a crowd waiting to get inside no matter what time of the day. The service is super quick and staff is very courteous. The food is excellent and one of the best places serving south Indian food.

Its a small place at a busy junction. Blink and miss but you won't. Simply because there is always a crowd outside waiting to be seated. Be it breakfast lunch or dinner be prepared to wait. At odd times you will get a table but they may ask you to share with other patrons. Its worth it. There is no... More
