Carnatic café offers a very different tasting, authentic menu in comparison to the largely similar tasting South Indian fair of all the other restaurants in Delhi. From the idlis to the sambhar, the taste is different and better.
Serving authentic dishes like paddu (deep fried potato & onion balls) to the innovative Malleswaram 18th cross ( a dosa; not an address in Bangalore), the restaurant serves up excellent dishes. The chutneys are brilliant like everything else on the menu and are served with every dish that you order on the menu.
Having visited this joint 3 times now, I have tried many different dishes and have not been dissatisfied even once. Other than the dishes mentioned above, the rava idli is great (it is served fresh, so one has to wait about 20 minutes) and so are the paper masala dosa, the mini thali, the onion masala dosa. The filter coffee is absolutely brilliant and a great finisher to a very good meal.
The restaurant has a homely feel to it and the service is great. Though the location of the restaurant is in a market which is crowded and dirty, the food experience makes up for it.
Meal for two: approx. INR 300
Note: the restaurant also serves breakfast
