Came here for brunch. The waiter could barely take an order and left after half the table had ordered. Food was average, took an age to arrive and was over priced. Massalla tea was undrinkable.

We went to Instant Karma for a beer. After a long wait the beer arrived. When we wanted to pay, they overcharged enormously. My advice is to stay away.

"Instant Karma's gonna get you", crooned John Lennon. He was right, at Instant Karma we are going to get you to try our mouth watering sea food, our authentic Italian and of course our Indian food. So grab some friends, pull up a chair and experience 'Instant Karma' - Mahabalipuram's best cafe!
