“Average Service and Food But Good Ambience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

Visited Kumbakonam on 11th March 2013 and stepped into the restaurant for dinner. This restaurant is a part of "Rayas Grand" hotel. Excellent location overlooking the "mahamaham holy tank". But beyond this, there is nothing good to say or the grandness is missing. I had an expectation as this restaurant is a part of "Rayas Group" - a big name in this temple town.

Food Taste - Average, Presentation - Good, Price - Reasonable. But "service aspect" is missing. You get a feeling that just you are another customer. Nothing more to it. Food was served even before the table was set. Water was not served at all. No personal attention or eye contact by the stewards. Need not be a preferred dining option in the town.

“vegatarian restaurant with good ambience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

The restaurant is on the ground floor facing the mahamagam tank , but , no view of the tank from inside the restaurant .They have some variety cuisine though not in plenty but decent enough for Kumbakonam.
Some of the bearers could talk in english . The North Indian Thali tasted good .
Quiet and neat place . When asked for coffee, though it was not coffee time as per local standards , the bearer managed to serve a GOOD black coffee.
A good restaurant especially for those who are pure Vegetarians.
