Without a doubt the worst meal we had in over two weeks in India. Vegetarian food in Southern India is usually wonderful, very fresh with vibrant flavor. This wasn't. And it doesn’t have to be expensive to be good, but even at the prices here, it was not good value. (Although the service was very prompt.) Very much a backpacker atmosphere, but a terrific view, including a slice of the temple.

We have generally had good reviews by travellers from all over the world and we are truly surprised that you found our food not upto the mark. Regret that we could not meet your standards but we will definitely try to exceed them during your next visit to our restaurant. It would be helpful if you could specify the items which were not satisfactory so that we can check and take appropriate action.

Thanks and best regards,

The food is good and value for money. A centrally located restaurant which offers north Indian Cuisines. But South Indian food is better. Stick to the local flavour or else you will have masala dosa filling in a Samosa!

We arrived at 6pm so we could see the sunset and the gopurams of the Meenakshi Temple light up and we had a great view, in fact most of the tables have a view. An added bonus was the ice cold beer and the food was better than average for a city business hotel too.

all the food was yummy...couldn't finish everything! View of Temple was amazing and wonderful to witness at sunset. And, we were lucky enough to be there to witness fireworks at the end of a festival weekend!! Great night all the way around

We visited the Surya restaurant based on the TripAdvisor reviews and the restaurant really justified the reviews. The view of the Meenakshi Amman Temple is truly amazing. I could not find a better way to spend the evening in Madurai.
Regarding the food, most of the dishes were tasty and perfectly cooked. The ambience of the place is top notch and is a perfect hangout place with friends.
The only drawback is the mosquitos. Damn! There were a lot of mosquitos and it really spoiled the mood. The prices are nominal considering the ambience and the view. The best time to visit is between 6-7PM.
