Surprising, I am not a fan of Idlis here. I love the other stuff though. The onion Oothappam is my favorite. Also Jigir Thanda the local speciality dessert from Madurai is available here. Place is noisy, crowded and service is fast. If you are looking for south indian tiffin and don't have much time, this is your place

Went to this place after a long day in this busy city. Quite an ordinary fare, but reasonably clean. Had Idli and dosa, some vada etc. Idli was soft, rest is not memorable. If you want a quick bite and a taste of local cuisine, an option.

I sincerely feel that this restaurant is one of the best for an authentic Tamil food. They spoil it with very poor service. For eg: They mix chutneys when they serve dosa. Coffee would be spilled all over because of overfilling the tumbler. I have always enjoyed eating masala dosa, puri, idly at this place. But never felt happy about... More

Four out of five times I visited this hotel at various locations(GN Chetty road,T Nagar,Beasant Nagar),service is pathetic.the main selling point of hotel when first introduced is the variety of chutneys served.The service staff avoid eye contact as much as possible when asked to serve the accompaniments or skip serving some varieties if you are new there.dosais are not good...

There are many branches in the city. Quality of the hotel appears going down year after the year. Hospitality is average. All south Indian snacks idly dosa etc. etc. are tasty .Coffee is excellent. All items are relatively cheap. A typical place for local style of eating if you wish to eat snacks like meal, this is the right place.... More

It is one of the best Idlys I have ever tasted. Idlys are serve on plantation leaves with an amazing mix of chutneys. The Coffee is also very good. The service is fast and the meal is a VFM deal. Highly recommended.

I have dined several times here. Food is very tasty and authentic. Idlies are soft and fluffy and served with 4 different chutnies, with option of podi and oil. Dosas and vadas are very tasty as well. Filter coffee is very refreshing.
