Great South Indian food and very reasonable on price. The restaurant was very busy with locals, reinforcing it's popularity and appeal to us foreigners. Most of us bought veg thali and were all very happy with them. Would recommend if you want South Indian in the middle of Kolkata.

Personal favorite being Paneer Onion Butter Masala Dosa. One thing is they serve huge portions and its more than enough for me. Have been eyeing for their thalis for ages, they look drool worthy, but... More

This is the best South Indian food so far in my life. Love the cheese masala there. Also idli and vada were delicious. What I didn't like was when I ordered lassi I found a dead small cockroach inside the lassi. So when you drink anything there you have to check thoroughly.
