Coffee and idli's are excellent. The food is very fresh and hot. Coffee is great. Small shop but neat with good value for the money. Good service.

This hole in the wall restaurant has fast and courteous service and delicious food and coffee. From the clean banana leaf plate on through several courses plus coffee and lassi, anyone who loves South Indian food will enjoy this special dining spot near the Temple.
