“too average to recommend ..”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

tried this place after i heard many refer to it as one of the reputed restaurants in the yesteryears, but was very disappointed with all the items served to us - the sambar vada was actually cold vada freshly dipped in hot but tasteless sambar( the butler replaced it after convincing himself), butter masala dosa was unremarkable masala dosa with a lump of frozen butter on it and breaking up pooris into smaller bits turned out to be an ardent task...only saving grace was prompt service. overall too average to suggest to someone looking for good southindian cuisine.

“OLDEST ,SAFE SOUTH INDIAN RESTAURANT”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

This one is there for decades...and is possibly the safest family restaurant in town . The problem with most Chennai restaurant are they are very high priced compared to Bangalore or Mumbai and the quality still can be improved .But what is the point in complaining if all the places charge the same . Food over the years has fallen standards but better than the rest in Chennai. Value for money spent definetly not there ..but one will still go as the others are even worse ! Even cleanliness standards have fallen !

“Great vegetarian joint”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

The ambience is very nice .The dishes are very tasty and mouth watering.But the only drawback is that the quantity is very less and sometimes the waiters tend to be lethargic.The place would be better if the management spends some money on renovation and providing extra wash basins.

The quality of food very good. the service is always the best. Value for money. On saturdays and sundays after 730PM you may need to wait - no prior reservation accepted.

“The same old woodlands !”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

This place is nostalgic as many of us in 20's and 30's have been here since our childhood days. This place gives the complete satisfaction of a family outing of enjoying some good food. They have many Halls now and are able to accommodate any kind of group - small / big.
