“Decent food, but there are better options”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Perhaps it was because we went rather late at night, but they were out of dosas. The iddlies were tasty though. It's unfortunate that you cannot get a good South Indian filter coffee here or masala chai. I preferred the outlet in T. Nagar, Chennai

“Traditional South Indian dishes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Neatness and quick service plus quality food. Uniformity in maintaining quality is a plus point. Personally supervised by experienced persons.

“Authentic Indian and amazing value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

We had a fantastic meal at this restaurant, we were seated in the air conditioned room upstairs and whilst we had a few difficulties understanding how it worked the waiters helped us out and made the experience a really good one. It's a very different eating experience of Dosas and Idlis served on a banana leaf with a selection of dahls that you eat with your fingers but I think it's an honest and authentic experience of Tamil food. If you are expecting a five star restaurant don't come here, if you want to experience a little bit of Indian authenticity and unbelievable value for money then this is the place for you.
