A typical authentic south india cuisine destination in western suburbs. Served very gud and hot food. Average waiting time to get a table is 20 mins and as time passes the waiting que gets longer. We almost had every dish on the menu and was served as per our request. A good hangout.

Went there for breakfast. Ordered for masala dosa, mendu wada and masala idli. Good authentic taste, chutney was good. Though filter coffee could have been better. Service is ok.

They have all the traditional South Indian dishes we are used to eating in Mumbai, and also a few interesting variations. I like their Sambar best among most restaurants that I have eaten at. This includes many in... More

Truly authentic South Indian delicacies at reasonable prices, with fast service with a smile. But unfortunately the place is average and very noisy, being small ( just about ten tables) and tends to be crowded, particularly during lunch hours.

The place is probably the only great place for South Indian food in South Mumbai. Open only for lunch and dinner it's always crowded because the food is excellent !
