“The only authentic south indian place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

If you are not turned-off by the crowd that is always waiting for their chance - you will love this place. It is in Kathgodam - just before you start your uphill journey to Nainital (which takes a little over 1 hour).
Almost all items are authentic in taste and fresh in quality.
You will not get such south indian fare at any place in Nainital or nearby.

“Dosa in Foothills”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2012

First of all, a great place to enjoy south indian food, very much on the national highway connecting nainital. My experience of the restaurant is of some body who hates going to eat dosas to some body who never says no for this place. I would say to start the eating with a bowl of rasam with papad, any person thinking its not spicy pls don't try its very spicy, order mysore masala dosa without thinking much and finish your meal with a cup of filter coffee.
