moderate hotel

This is situated in heart of city and offers a variety of food throughout the day. The south indian dishes are of-course the best ones here at really good prices. One should also taste kumbakonam coffee in dabra set here during the visit. Located in the market place( i think near Town Hall School) it has ample space for large... More

We stayed here in May 2015 during our Kumbakonam trip. The hotel rooms were quite good, nice and clean and air conditioning was just perfect. We had breakfast, and was quite good and prices were also reasonable. Highly recommended for a night stay.

The place maybe popular for its good food but on 12 May 2015 when we ( family of 5 members) walked in at 9:00AM we found we could not sit together as each table was occupied partially with one or two vacant seats. That is when we noticed 3 tables in a row totally empty but with "no service" signage... More

When we were looking for a place to stay in Kumbakonam we came across Murugan cafe which has both dinning and accomodation. Since it was marriage season they didn't have accomodation and they suggested Sitthi residency and were kind enough to get the phone number also. Very nice of them. Food in Murugan cafe was good and reasonable. People here... More

Typical TN Restaurant. Noisy, crowded, and unclean. Food is decent though. Service is pretty fast and price is low. I think it augurs well for the regulars and the floating population, which comes to Kumbakonam for the pilgrimage trips
