We have been rather disappointed on our last two visits, food is not tasty as before, the waiters don't listen to instructions properly, somehow I feel Ram Ashray and Arya Bhavan are better options to visit.

We went to eat at cafe Madras after a long long time. I am acting snooty but what stopped me form visiting Cafe Madras was that you have to share a table with someone. Its normally me and my wife that eat together. What I like is privacy and would like to decide who sits on my table. Especially as... More
