I loved this place for teh nice idlis and the Quick Service. There was a small waiting time for the Table, but once the table is offered, the service starts with no wait time.

This Time, it was the Waiter's choice and he suggest best food ever - Onion Uthappam - speciality is the Chennai Sambar Onion and Keerai Vadai, and degree Coffee, More than the food, I like the Waiter's courteous service!
