I have been to this restaurant on GN Chetty Road a number of times. The food used to be of great quality with unbeatable taste. However, off late the quality & taste, which had been the USP's of this restaurant has suffered resulting in loss of clientele.

Though I noticed sharp increase in prices( understandable giving the economic scenario), one gets good value for their money. PODI AND ONION UTTHAPAM is a must have items. One needs to... More

One of those super awesome places for a quick snack. Just love the podi onion uttapam and also the podi idli. The chutneys and sambar taste very good. The place is not very fancy but definitely worth the money! Also.. The jigarthanda is just awesome! Must have!
