Recommend this restaurant by the caretaker/receptionist at my hotel. It was well worth the long walk here through all the crowded streets and traffic. I was greeted by a lovely man who spoke pretty good English and made me feel very welcome as when I...arrived I was the only person In the dining room. Soon after I ordered the place filled up. The menu is huge and there is a great choice for non-veg meals, some sounded a little odd from Descriptions as I understand it they use some parts of meat that in the UK we just wouldn’t. I had a great meal and whilst the portion size was a little small on the fish fry, the taste was fab. For great food, served with a smile I don’t mind paying a little more for it. I could t fault my meal.More

Kumar Mess is for those who like to taste a variety of non-vegetarian food for which Madurai is famous. If you are a vegetarian avoid this as the options are few. I was part of a group that comprised non-vegetarians and they found plenty of...options such as rabbit meat, mutton kudal kuzhambu and aatu kal paya. Their views on the food were mixed. From my observation I found that the food it way too oily. However, locals in Madurai recommend this place for non-vegetarian food.More

Visited yesterday evening. Menu a little confusing for us- for example, couldnt order rice as not lunch time, and my husband somehow ordered mutton gravy, not a meal as intended.. Food was pretty tasty but the whole experience a tiny bit strange for us. (We...have been in India now for 7 weeks and this is the first time we've had a problem eating out, haha.)More

I had the opportunity to try their goat leg soup with string hoppers (Aathu Kaal Paya & iddiyappam). I must say, it was the best i had tasted. Simple shop with great tasting menus.

We had chicken and mutton biriyani plus prawn sixty five. Food was awesome plus excellent service! A must visit when in Madurai. Apparently the meat is delivered fresh daily and consumed within the day.
