“Closest a restaurant food can get to homecooking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

Craving for some north Indian food, got to know about this place from tripadvisor. And the raving reviews are all true. The location is very good and easy to spot.
Anytime of the day you go and you will always have to wait to get a place here. The food is very good. They ask how spicy you want your food to be it is palatable to all.

Especially the panner makhani, navratan korma in the main dishes were just awesome. The paranthas at this place are also very very good the best though are aloo(potato) and matar (peas) paranthas. The butter milk is also very good.
I would definitely go to this place whenever I am in Kodai next.

“Delicious North Indian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

This is probably the best north indian food i have ever had. The rotis and parathas were just delicious to have...Taste is amazing and it really feels to be at home. This is closer to the 7 roads junction opposite to Bharat Petroleum bunk. This is a small restaurant with 10 tables. Please be there before 8:30pm. The food was too good that we ended up eating too much ::-). The rates are very nominal.

“The best in Kodai”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

After experimenting lot of restaurants, we finally landed here and it is very easy to locate the place. The food was great and what they served is a great value for money. The hotel is closed on all Wednesdays. Did not expect a quality North Indian food in kodaikanal.
