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.

Before coming to this restaurant I was little-bit hesitating to come over. Mr. Debram suggested to try and test the food and once I reached there, all were happy and enjoyed... More

I am a regular to this mess whenever I visit Madurai. They have opened a new branch now in front of Mattuthavani bus stand which is very spacious. The biryani and the meat delicacies are very tasty. It's a bit expensive now and service is also not up to the mark. It's a quite popular mess in Madurai and you... More
