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

I went there in Jan 2011. the local guys recommended. but the staff were very unfriendly there. I won't recommend. I wish i had been to better restaurants, but in that area we didn't have that many options.
