This is still the place to go to for finest Vegetarian fare in Trivandrum. Located opposite the Secretariat, I have been here as a child with school friends and still the taste lingering in my memories made me go again this time. No difference. Spot on tastes and spot on service. Fast and efficient as always

Food is really good but service is terrible. I visited this restaurant twice. Second time i had to walk out of restaurant because no one was interested in taking order. Ambience is good.

Weekends are a no-no in this lace. You may have to wait a few minutes which may extend up to one hour. The food is terrific and so is the interior. You will be welcomed by a smiling supervisor and depending on the size of members, they will guide you to a comfortable place.You will be greeted by a smiling... More

This restaurant has two floors. The top floor is AC more costly and will usually have a long waiting line. The group floor is non AC and is a place for average Joes. Both floors are fit for family. Must try the chilli parrota and the Paneer masala dosa

Just average food,with nothing much to offer.Weekends are usually crowded and parking is a big issue.You need to be a highly skilled driver to negotiate the twists and turns of the parking lot.
