I went there with some friends. Its a good place serving very nice south India food. Badam halwa is must try. Its too heavy but relishing. Dosas, idly, dahi wada, etc are all just fine. Must go.

Very tasty food specially if you want to try authentic southindian taste while on bangalore trip. This place is a must visit. Only thing that disappointed me coz items like dosa upma was very oily.

Authentic south indian dishes. Reasonable. You get the feel of the old days cafe restaurant. Yet they have tried to mordenise with time so the interior is good. They have a tree in the center of the restaurant which goes to the upper ceiling. Overall a good change from routine outside eating.

Excellent place for South Indian cuisine. During peak hours one will have to wait for a seat. The dosas are mouth watering! Bisibele Bhat is another dish I liked.

Fantastic food. #Heaven for South Indian food lovers. Lunch combo from 12pm to 2.45pm it's worth ua money💰. Must try. Very quick service and great management. I specially loved rava idly and masala dosa. Well maintained. Great service. The place is always crowded & you will always have to wait for your turn.👌🏻👍
