“Good Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

+ Centrally located
+ Good Food
+ Always tasty and fresh
+ Uncomplicated Fast Service
+ Not an extensive menu but all basic South Indian fast food snacks and breakfast items in Menu
+ Extremely Busy always (hard to get a seat)
+ Better off with a take out rather than waiting (avoid Rush Hours)
+ Get the feel that U R in a crowded cafe in Chennai

Nothing has changed over years .. Food Quality, Service or Cleanliness!

“A good South Indian hotel in Sunnyvale”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

It is a treat to taste south Indian food in the US once in a while. If one needs to indulge in such a treat, the best hotel for it is Madras Cafe. The dishes are yummy and are not expensive too. The rush and the waiting that follows it is enough to make you feel like searching for some other hotels!

This restaurant serves variety of South Indian food and snacks at reasonable price. The food is quite tasty and enjoyable. The place however gets a bit noisy and crowded.
