Catered more for the general public and setup for bulk/volume sales; of the two items I ordered, it was better than expected. Plan on trying them again! Extremely affordable.

After a long time I had a good Pongal and wada, of good quality and size. Felt quite enough for a brunch. We also had a hot filter coffee and the quality was good. Overall value for money.

Sambar is famous here. Start with idly. They'll fill the idly with a cup full of sambar. Very hygienic as well. Coffee is also authentic.
