My visit for lunch at Amaravathi got off to a bad start. Recommended by an acquaintance, who talked about it in glowing terms, "the best South Indian restaurant in town," I arrived shortly before noon in eager anticipation of a good lunch. Regrettably, it was not to be so. Entering the premises, I slipped on a freshly washed floor (there... More

Very cost effective - good, tasty Indian food. My favourite is the chicken dosa - it is a huge dosa with minced chicken masala stuffing. It is amazing. You can also order for home delivery. One of my favourites.

The place opens at 6:00pm. Food is, simply put, amazing. Food is authentic & one can taste the freshness of ground spices. Food serving size is decent although the naan can be little bigger. I loved their biryani, their fish/chicken curries & lassi. We liked the place so much that we went there 3 out of 4 nights that we... More

We head there for a Team Lunch out and the experience some good cuisines. Veg or non Veg they got it. Seafood Biriyani and mutton biriyani will make meat lovers visit it again. some extra special dishes available for dinners. good service and customer care fast delivery make us more happy. But they have to make more parking space

Truly outstanding preparations. Was a pleasure to have patronized the venue. Quite "hidden away" in a lane but offers a memorable gastronomic experience indeed.
