Very tasty typical south Indian food available. Place is a bit small and may have to wait for seats(especially on weekends). But it’s worth waiting and economical as well.

Matunga has n number of udipi hotels and they serve very good medu vadas and dosas. Café madras is one of them. Their medu vadas are too good and the sambhars which don't contain sweet as in other suburbs.

Its a small place, usually packed, bang at Kings circle, matunga. All the item here are worth a try. Especially if you add malga podi on top and later finish your meal with a cup of filter coffee. Quick service. Great value for money.

While it is overhyped - it certainly offers very good food. Their idlis and dosas are excellent - if going on the weekend be prepared to wait for an hour to get a table.

The quality of food here is excellent. The seating could be more comfortable for sure. To avoid crowds come on a weekday - Sundays are a mad rush and should be avoided.
