I had Sada dosa, Masala Dosa, Rasam, Omlet and Lunch at this place. I have been here several times with family and without family. I love Omlet at this place. But wish they give bread with it. It was Very Good South Indian Food

Being born South Indian and having lived in Chennai for four decades I can definitely vouch the food served here is quite authentic. Within 20 days I happened to dine thrice, twice in their west outlet and once in their South side. All were very good experience. Be it their Rasam, sambar, Dosa, Vada. But the highlight i would say... More

This is the only place I have eaten this style of food so cannot speak to authenticity. I have eaten there a couple of times and sampled wife's orders as well. I really like all of it. Very, very plain decor but it works for them.(south side) Super fast service. Friendly. Welcoming. Wide variety of unique dishes. Killer coffee. Called... More

Went there with a buddy for an afternoon lunch. We were looking for real Indian food, and we certainly found it! What we didn't know, though, was that there is a bit if a difference between 'Indian' food and 'South Indian' food. Apparently, in South India (including Sri Lanka) they like their food spicy. I mean VERY soicy. The server... More

We thought we had a groupon for this place but were corrected by the server. The groupon was for a location in West Edmonton. Nevertheless, we ordered the mysore masala dosas, and they were delicious like always. Have been to this restaurant a few times before this year. The food quality standard is consistently pleasant. The staff service is friendly... More

I'm a fan of south indian cuisines.... Of all the South Indian restaurants I've tried in Calgary and Edmonton in last five years, Kathir has been my favourite. The dosas (especially plain masala) are spicy and great in taste.

Had chicken biryani at this place. Although, it was not very authentic, it was good as far as taste was concerned! If you like south Indian filter coffee, this place has the best filter coffee in town!

We love the idlis and dosas! Very basic, but ok for what we want....it is more Sri Lankan than South Indian with simalarities

We always love having a good South Indian place to go to wherever we live. In Edmonton, it's been Kathir. It's simple in presentation but you won't care because the food is nice. The service is quick and prices are reasonable.
