I've been going to this all vegetarian restaurant for a long time and it never fails to delight me! I love the taste of all the south indian dishes, especially the Onion rava masala dosa, ask for it to be made extra crispy. The chutneys and Sambhar that is served with the dosa are superb. Their fusion dishes like Gobhi... More

This is the third time we visited this restaurant and we were not disappointed. All of us ordered Rava Dosa and Maysore Dosa and they were delicious. Four type of sauces accompanying the dosas are very good. The price is very reasonable compared other similar restaurant in the area.

Have been here twice for linch. This is strictly vegetarian...but my friend and I did not care. The buffet selection was fresh and varied. 4 types of desserts offered. The owner brought freshly made Dosas to the table. Lunch buffet was $7.99. How do you beat that in a nice restaurant in this area? Restaurant was a bit hard to... More

First came water with food particles on the outside of the cups! Are they not using a dishwasher? We asked for a change -... More

Brought a vegetarian friend to one of our favorite Indian restaurants. We were greeted like friends and honored guests. She wanted a dish that she had previously tried but could not remember the name. The waiter patiently listened, figured it out, showed her the dish on the menu and she was able to confirm it. We also ordered an excellent... More

My family is originally from the South Indian State of Andhra Pradesh. South Indian food is distinctly different than what most Americans are used to because most Indian restaurants in the United States are owned by individuals from North Indian states and most Americans experience with Indian food is Tandoor Chicken, Naan bread, and curries.
