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

We made the mistake of coming here on a Sat eve. The place was teeming with people. Usually a sign that the food is good. So we went in. Online reviews by others indicated the same. 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. South Indian food tends to... More

Went to try out some south Indian cuisine and wasn't dissapointed. The food was quite good but a bit expensive considering that the offering is only vegetarian. We were served by the manager Lasanga, who was very friendly and attentive. Overall quite satisfied.

We brought friends who had never had Indian food before and the staff outdid themselves. We had marsala chat salad (spectacular), two new (to us) eggplant dishes and our usual favorites. Everything was excellent; in fact our friend who doesn't eat spinach said, this isn't bad, I can eat this. We introduced them to the mango lassi which they loved.... More
