We went here a few times during our trip and were never disappointed. It has vegetarian food and really good options. Their veg thali and madras coffee is the best! The service is also good.

This restaurant is very good for vegetarians. They have a variety of food items many made with less oil. The food served is typically south indian and tastes quite good.
