South Indian cuisine to a very high standard. Masala dosa very tasty, fresh and hot. Vada and idli also terrific. Good location and, naturally, very cheap. Also does a good cup of filter coffee : )

This is a nice place for some quick, tasty, South Indian fast food. Tried their dosas, vadas and idlis. Tasted great. Inexpensive too

This place is a paradise for food lovers. The place is simple, nothing fancy. If you're looking for good(read great) South Indian fare, very few places are better than this(definitely not for the price). The only deal breaker is the annoyingly long queues... goes to show the popularity of the place

I run into this restaurant by chance and liked it so much that I went there several times during my stay in Mumbai. It is a great please to eat thali or any of the delicious rice dishes. Also the veg kofta was delicious. The staff is very friendly and helpful to western people when questions arise regarding the menu.
