The place is always bustling with an overwhelming crowd. In spite of that food was still good and made to suit one's preference. Their chicken 65 and their crabmeat omelet was tasty.

The worst Restaurent in Madurai. It's like a flee market where waiters walk around with fried fish and meat and forces you to buy while you are already having something else. Never visit , save your life.

Very expensive,its ok ,I was bit disappointed for the hype it didn't live up to expectation.Their portion are so tiny but the price is high.I don't mind paying if the food is extra ordinary but this is not the case.They charge Rs 30 for tiny golf ball size mutton meat ball but average taste.

Rice was not of the quality expected of such a place. Mutton Kola was good but the crab masala and fish fry were average,... More

The food was good and very reasonably priced. Attire of the service staff could be improved. It was a week day and went for lunch around 1.45. It was crowded. The seating the first floor is better than the ground floor. Try dine in the first floor.

Thank SallayR
