“Great South Indian Food and very cheap”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

I visited here with a friend. The decor is very basic and in fact it looks very run down but do not let this put you off since the food is delicious. It is always telling when a South Indian restaurant is filled with Indian people and this was the case here. Lots of families coming for dinner.

The menu is basic but enough choice to cater for most tastes. They do not serve alcohol.

Price is very cheap.

Highly recommended.

“Great south Indian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

The kotthu parotta was fantastic, the biryani tasted excellent (the goat was a bit on the chewier side though, which is why they get 4 out of 5 stars).

Dosas were good (tried the malli dosa and the extremely spicy Mysore dosa - or a similar sounding name) ... the chutneys that went with them were probably not the best I've had.

As somebody else mentioned, they really could use some help with the decoration, it looks so plain and empty.

An authentic place to go to, I definitely would go back there again on my next visit to the US NJ area.

“Whats good here?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Only the Hot South Indian Non Veg Thali seems to be one option when you are craving for some Indian cheap food. Otherwise in the evening they even serve day old preparations which tastes bad.

“Very plain and hard to find, but excellent menu and great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Rajni could use some interior decoration help (though it is clean), but it has one of the best South Indian menus I've seen and was filled with Indian families coming in for late dinners when we attended. Service was friendly. Prices are very low for the quality and diversity of the menu.
