We catered Wedding Reception Food from Madras Pavilion. Test of food was no problem but service and quantity was a real issue. Before half the crowd gets their plate, they ran out of half the Menu items. They tried refilling by bringing little more but did not cut it. Our event was a grant success from every aspect; however the... More

I ordered the dosa and the paneer masala, and my friend ordered the onion hot chili uthappam. The service was not terrible, but was noticeably absent. It took close to 15 minutes to get someone to stop by our table and take our order. The paneer masala was very good, and dosa was also good though enormous. I also really... More

I lived and worked in the State of Kerala and other Southern States for 16 years, so this food is like a homecoming for me. First, dismiss how you think Indian food should taste. In the US, the Northern style is prevalent with strong, pungent flavors. Southern food is different; it's delicate, more subtly spiced, usually hotter and coconut milk... More

You'd think their Dosais are crispy-- NOT! You'd think the stuffing would make up for it?-- Not. The sambhar served was barely lukewarm. The staff that greeted us went and sat somewhere in a remote corner and never enquired once if we needed anything-- not even napkins or water refills. On a Friday night, there was not a single soul... More

Food was delicious and definitely worth the price for the amount of food that I got. Service was friendly and rather quick.

I've honestly never eaten at the restaurant but their takeout is very tasty. My only complaint is the plastic wrap that they place on the takeout dishes makes it very difficult access. Their Sag Paneer however is well worth the wait, and their Garlic Naan is the best in town (even with delivery time factored in).

We tried some new dishes at this Indian restaurant and thought they were pretty tasty, if a little spicy. This is the first Indian restaurant I have been to where they did not ask our preferred spice level. It is a completely vegetarian restaurant, so the whole menu is there for your choosing. We selected some new dishes for us... More

We went to this restaurant because we were helping our daughter during a move to Austin and wanted to introduce her and her new roommates to south Indian cuisine. since our guests did not know what to order, we thought it would be nice to order the Chef's dinner so everyone could try a variety of dishes. Well, first the... More

The doses are wonderful. The chutneys and sambhar are tasty. We especially loved their spring dosa. Their lunch buffet is fantastic if you like South Indian food.north Indian dishes are not their speciality.
