Perhaps one of the oldest and finest vegetarian restaurant in Trivandrum. Great place for breakfast. Good filter coffee. Stick with the South Indian items, because that's what they do very well. Comparatively clean. Good staff. Prompt service. No frills. Parking in the front is a fight. There is a larger yard behind the building.

Light, fresh and delicious food with attentive and courteous service in an unpretentious environment We were so spoilt with the menu choices, we asked our waiter to choose for us. The result was: two very happy diners!

A good place to get the quintessential south indian tiffin. Loved the vada and the coffee. The tea had a weird taste so got it replaced.

A must visit place for anyone who enjoys crispy dosa, idli or any type of south Indian delicacies. The filter coffee is amazing and the staff were very courteous. Only drawback is the prolonged waiting during weekends and lack of adequate parking space.

Ghee roast was crisp and there was generous amount of ghee on it,vada was piping hot and crisp.coffee is not too great and the reason why it's not a perfect score..service is quick and efficient.. definitely not cheap considering ground floor where I had breakfast from is not air conditioned..

If you are looking for Pure veg restaurant and Yummy Kerala foods, then yes this is the place ... Do try this restaurant which is located very near to the railway station .. Kerala parota, Chilly parota, gobi/ baby corn Manchurian. All these was really yummy ... Do try Kerala parota and kurma here ...

If you are a big fan of Dosas - the regular South Indian Udupi fare, this is the place to be at, in Trivandrum. The only place untouched by Kerala influence, you get authentic stuff here, almost on par with with the tastes of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka, served with a variety of chutneys. The place also serves up some... More
