Often go here for lunch when in town, or to meet friends. Very tasty vegetarian food, served as buffet but with delicious dosas and puris cooked to order. Helpful friendly staff and excellent value.

We go there quite often, but not as often as I'd like. I've never had food there that wasn't excellent. The buffet dishes are different every time. The staff are great. Extremely good value.
