This is probably one of the oldest south indian joints of Mumbai. The place offers good south indian food at very low prices. Almost all the preparations are nice and the service is very quick. However if you are thinking of having a quiet meal and some privacy, prepare for some disappointment. They have wooden benches which accommodate four people.... More

This place is a must visit place. Superb south Indian food. I often visit this place and with breakfast items we make it our lunch. Ragi dosa is one of the healthiest and is available here. Don't forget to have coffee it's truly refreshing.

The place remains unchanged and consistent despite Matunga's changing landscape. Whilst some may complain about the cramped space , the waiters who are as crisp and too the point and not particularly warm, the food is outstanding. The menu is limited but every item there is superb. The owners are very sweet and always take an effort to help you.... More
