“Great food on a terrace overlooking the main square”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

Dined here twice; good food both times. Not obviously a restaurant as up a rather rickety stair. But worth the short climb.

Lovely to sit out for dinner looking out over Gandhi Sq.
Usual stuff (dhal, rices, naan breads etc) very first class. The main elements also good, especially the vegetarian dishes. I recall having an execellent biryani.

Highly recommended.

“Best food in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

My partner and I stayed in Mysore for 3 evenings and ate here every evening, as the food was excellent. The tandoori chicken is delicious - go for spicy! Dal fry and special nan to die for! Kofta, aloo gobi curry and masala papads were tasty. Very relaxed sitting outdoors on the leafy terrace, overlooking the hustle and bustle of Gandhi Square below. Great spot to enjoy a couple of ice cold kingfishers. Watch out for mozzies - endured many bites in one evening - repellent a must!

“Great food and value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

To look at the outside you wouldn't know there was even a restaurant there, its hidden away up a rickety flight of stairs but when you reach the top there is a lovely alfresco dining experience. Although not particularly well lit, you do get a view of a bustling square. The service isn't as prompt and attentive as western restaurants and the toilets leave alot to be desired but the food is good and Great value for money.

“Good food and friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

We ate there four times during our one week stay in Mysore. The service is very friendly, the food is good , and the prices very reasonable (mains around 100 rupees). They serve veg and non veg dishes and have beer. It's one of th best we have found in town and the terraces are quite pleasant. The restrooms are very basic (a bit dirty and no toilet paper), but that's India... We would go there again without hesitation.
