A friend was visiting from the USA. As we stay in different parts of Mumbai, we hit upon Madras Cafe to meet and have Breakfast - let me caution you - this is more a Breakfast place than a Chatting place! At 8 am on Sunday, we waited for 15 minutes before being shown to a table which we shared... More

If we travel to the city in the morning, no breakfast at home. Cafe Madras it is ! That's how special their offerings are. You wait outside for some time, squeeze in your ample frame into their narrow benches and well absolutely enjoy their delicious ware ! Value for money !

Totally awesome and authentic south Indian food. Table sharing might be an different experience because of lack of space for tables. but when it comes to food and taste , all of cons go away. Must try at least once , and possible every once in a while.

If you are sambar lover, do visit here. Almost all the dishes are good and tasty. South Indian people, if your tongue wants to taste south Indian dishes, come here.

It's a must visit restaurant in Mumbai. The taste of South Indian dishes is simply mind blowing. The Idlis just melt in your mouth and the Sambhar and Chutney taste awesome as well. There is practically everything in the South Indian menu on offer and very reasonably priced as well. However do expect a waiting time of 15-20 mins through... More
