Although not a big name, however amazing place to have a quick meal. the only handicap to it is that it has limited menu like idli, podi idli, dosa, or vada etc.

Worth visiting. Eating hot idli with hands on a banana leaf, is an experience in itself. And getting excellent idli and sambhar is a bonus. A must visit for anybody visiting chennai

You want Idlis, dosas, uttapams, vadas? This is perhaps the BEST place in Chennai (other than the utterly authentic home cooked food you get... well, at home) to eat it. Super quick service. Food served on banana leaf. Amazing chutneys, terrific mulagapodi, piping hot idlis and dosas... It's a south Indian food lovers paradise. I have been multiple times to... More

As the name suggests this place in Besant Nagar offers hot idlis served over banana leaf along with chilli powder& til oil, samabar, four different types of chutneys. Hot idlis with varieties of chutneys, sambar, chilli powder are very nice to taste.

The moment you enter the restaurant, you are put off as it was too crowded.. But that's what you should expect in a Udipi restaurant. The food was served on a banana plantan. But the food was awesome... Never have eaten such soft idlis... even the Dosas were good... The highlight was 4-5 different types of chatnis... simply awesome... But... More

Quick service, traditional items with variety of chutneys! tried Ghee Dosa,a delicious stuff. What I liked was the choice menu. Not liked is obvious water shortage - mug and bucket for hand wash

Had received suggestions form a friend, as a must try while in Chennai. All the food was awesome, from the hot steaming soft Idlis, to the crispy vadas, the pongal and not to miss the array of chutneys...one better than the other. The cherry on the cake was the sweet pongal...we went to heaven and back.....the service was so smooth... More
