“Think twice on a Saturday afternoon”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

I can't think of any other reason why it was so crowded. It is not exactly in the centre of the busy business district (the folks I saw there were not office-goers). It is not exactly a touristy spot either - but the folks I saw there were people who were out with friends for the weekend. At 2.00 in the afternoon to be asked to wait for half an hour to be seated was a bit too gut-wrenching. Literally.
I love a meal on the Saturday after so we asked for the usual Andhra Mini Meal. The fare is pretty standard - the rice to go with the "gun-powder and ghee", sambhar and rasam (Andhra Style), the flavoured buttermilk, curd. There were to usual gonkura chutney, the onion chutney, pickle and papad. What was missing was the dried fried chillies!
On this day everything had a bit too much salt in it - palatable though. The service was tolerably quick but a little confused - your requests for a little sugar for the curd or for a freah lime soda - had to be repeated before they finally came.
There is a bar attached too - didn't try it though the cold beer looked pretty tempting. Cost wise it is par for the course.
You will enjoy it but I guess you have to be there early in the afternoon to be attended to well.

“Pay for what you eat!!”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

This Andra cuisine restaurant has a good ambience, its a lower mid range hotel, Most of the food items were spicy. There was some misunderstanding between me and the waiter. As he wanted to force what they make, rather what we ask for..(crazy).. I asd for coke. he bought thumps up and said that is coke.. :P.. funny.. I din mind that.. except that thing the food was really tasty. There was enough space, good ambeince , good variety of food too..a place to watch out..!!!

“Good value for money, clean, good food and varying service”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

Note: this review is written by a european who is not an expert on indian or andhra food.

If you are in for spicy indian food in a clean, well managed and friendly environment close to MG on St Marks Rd, this is the place. Our party for seven returned four times in two weeks, because of the great food. We had both vegetarian and non-veg dishes. No problem with any of them. Ok, you can´t get a steak in here, but you rarely can in an indian restaurant.

I tried a lot of currys with chicken and mutton and they were spicy and well tasting. You have a wide variety of bread and other side dishes. The beer is cold and the atmosphere quite allright. Start of with thalis. They are really nice and a good way to try some different stuff at once.

The service can be on the slow side. We had different experiences. Sometimes it was excellent with 8 people servicing us, and sometimes just one waitor who seemed to be a trainee of something. I don´t know why, but we saw no connection to if the restaurant was crowded or empty.
