Since my in-laws are vegetarians we were hunting for some vegetarian options.Trip Advisor itself suggested me this place. I have no regrets. I wouldn't say its the best Indian food I have ever had but its decent food and the best as per the need of the hour.

Beside Tosai, the Banana Leaf Rice is excellent. There are a wide range of Roti Canai to select. The drinks taste good.

Well known for banana leaf in town and the restaurant located nearby the famous Jonker Street. Tasty banana leaf food with lots of variety for both vege and non-vege and price is really reasonable.

The food was tasty, absolutely fulfilling and it made me happily dig into the banana leafs. The Rasam and buttermilk were authentic, loved the puffy idli and dal-rice was yummy.
