We had gobi manchurian, veg fried rice n dosa and all was very very bad. Plates and spoons were very dirty even after telling them to wash again. This restaurent just takes advantage of being in the centre of market place. Waste of money !!

We were on a family vacation to Ooty in end May 2012. Enquired from a friend who lived in Ooty many years back about a good eating joint in the main market area. He recommended us this place and trust me children and us both - husband & wife - were a bit sceptical about the place as it was in the main commercial street with open area for eating. Initially, we thought someone will come with a menu card & take order for the snacks.
.
We observed just one man running about taking orders, cleaning the tables, serving the snacks & presenting the bill. We were just amazed by this man's agility with which he was performing. We had a filter coffee and Idlis on our first day, whereas children ordered cutlets.
.
Subsequently for the remaining 4 evenings that we spent at Ooty, it became a practise to visit Kurinji's Snack Bar for our evening Snacks, Tea / Coffee / Ice-cream after a trip to near by places in Ooty. On our last day of the visit, I could not resist but ask the man who served us for 5 evenings his name and if he was the owner of the place. Very politely he told me his name and that he was an employee. We including the children were simply awestruck with this man's commitment towards his employer and also the customers.
.
The quality of snacks - Hot, Delicious, Hygienic and Fresh. Since the turnover of the items is massive, all the eatables are fresh. Saw the man washing his hands and then serving to each of his customers after cleaning the table. Also he serves to many who find it more convenient to place the order and eat in the a/c comfort of their vehicles rather than having a feel of a roadside food joint.
.
My recommendation - Do try once at Kurinji Snack Bar. All the snacks are fresh and tasty. Watch Swaminathan serve with a smile. Do have hot coffee. I am definitely going to visit Kurinji whenever I go to Ooty next.

As of now this restaurant can be given a skip.
The reasons are many, the most important is that it is not kept in a hygienic manner.
The location of this restaurant is very good which is bang on the commercial road, there is hardly one person serving the food and occasionally cleans the tables.
Considering all these facts, kindly avoid going to this place for the time being.

Very very bad food. They make some quick money as it's centrally located. Menu cards are of no use as they serve only handful items at any time. Terrible food.
