It's a simple budget restaurant. I had biryani and it was good. The food is not the main attraction tough. the architecture is very funny and it looks like you are in a pigeons coop. waiters also still wear some old style uniforms.

Its an Ancient style restaurant with limited options for food. It feels good to be here if you don't expect too much from this restaurant. It has a very different style siting arrangement and the waiters also have a old style clothing which was used during the maharja dynasty. Feels good to see them in this style.

Small ICH compared to other branches at TVM. But I felt food is pretty good here. May be the impact of being near to and always accessible by MLAs :). Can give a try if you are going to MLA hostel for any purpose.

Only the architectural part is good. Very slow service, average on taste. Had to wait half an hour for Masala Dosa and a cup of tea. The way they take orders is like we pathetic. It's like if you want, have and go.

It's a very weird building for a restaurant It's wallet friendly and the place is perfect if you are in a hurry and doesn't want to spend much for a quick bite.
