Had breakfast: idli, medu vada, ghee masala dosa and coffee. In taste all was average including the sambar and chutney. I think there is more hype here and food can definitely improve. Coffee served in silver tumblers so thats unique.

We had heard a lot about this place and it truly lived to our expectations. The breakfast served was just yummy. One should not miss Ghee Dosa, Chow Chow Bath and Fruit Salad. If you are in Bangalore, you should definitely visit this place for breakfast.

Visited during lunch time on weekdays so it was not too crowded. It's ambience is simple non fuss. Comfortable seating. Washrooms are clean. Service was ok. Food was tasty. It is an ideal place to taste South Indian food in Bangalore .

This is typically a "must" for Bangalore. We went there with family. There was waiting for a while - but it's worth. Food was awesome - and heavy and extremely tasty.
