“Good food...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Let me tell you if you are looking for tasty South Indian food at reasonable cost then this is the right place for you... I just love their vada sambar, filter coffee, pesarette, pongal, curd rice. The quality of food is very good. At the same time if you want to leisurely sit with your family and have a family time then you will find it difficult. This hotel is most of the time full and you need to wait quiet long for your turn to get a seat. If you coming there as a couple be prepared to share seat with strangers. It can get a bit chaotic at times... But definitely worth it... The food is really yummy and you will not be disappointed for sure.

“A great weekend breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Let me start of by saying that i love their Sambar, and filter coffee, there are days I crave the sambar and have to go often to satisfy my desire.
the idlis are excellent, the rasam vada, the breakfast khichidi with kadi, the sooji halva, the sett dosa, the masala dosa.
Defintely one of my favourite breakfast joints which I WOULD RECOMMEND to everyone.
