Highly recommend this place. Very basic setup - just a few tables in a small room, but staff are nice and food is fantastic. Fast service as well. Masala Dosa is the best!

Small restaurant specializing in dosas, but also having a broad range of choices good for a lunch time meal. Definitely recommend if you are in the area.

So delicious!! The masala dosa and the Indian pancake are amazing. I have never had such a delicious Ayurvedic Black tea with 34 herbs. I could eat there daily and it’s also very well priced and the staff is friendly. Bring a mosquito repellant!
