We enjoyed our lentil dosa, parotta, and Meen Moily Curry dishes, all at medium spice levels that were just right. Service was very friendly and helpful but slow; all foods also arrived at the same time. But the atmosphere was happy and the place was crowded with large families, even when we arrived at 9 pm on a Saturday night.... More

Never expected a South Indian food with such authenticity in this city. Really enjoyed the buffet. Loved their soup, starters and main course. Not expensive. A place to dine.

The food is very good for vegetarians. I didn't try non veg on the day we went, but my wife had mentioned that the veg food is much better than non veg.

We visited Karaikudi to taste a different type of Indian food. For the most part, we are used to the Northern Indian cuisine which is most common around my home town. At any rate, the restaurant is small, not fancy but clean. Regardless, I came for the food which I expected to be fiery spicy and authentic. Karaikudi did deliver!... More

Do not go until they change the managing staff. I was almost inclined to give good review but experienced worst customer service. The food was good, but the staff was very bad. At first they behaved. We went for the buffet and we had to wait for our friends for few minutes. Apparently, that was the main argument from them.... More

Weekend buffets are value for money. We have eaten here several times because we live nearby. Very good and authentic South Indian buffet. The lunch buffet is a good deal with lots of selections. We have tried both the weekend and the weekday buffet and we were happy with both. Recommended to everyone who loves spicy Chettinad food.

Edison is where lots of Indian restaurants and shops. This place looks old and not fancy however lunch Buffett choices is good to include soup, appetizer and veg and meat dishes. SPICY hot. Surprising not crowded. Goat curry is excellent and authentic. Price is low.

Take out experience was horrible!. I got chicken 65 which is consistently prepared well. But my experience with mutton and/or chicken biryani is not consistent in that on occasions the food seemed stale and not freshly made.
