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.
