You can try different varieties of Dosa and Utthapams here and even Idly-Pongal are too yummy. All their branches have consistent taste and quality and high standards. Their chutneys taste fresh and are not diluted unlike other restaurants. Prices are moderate.

Best places to have different varieties of Idly. Dosa and pongal are also excellent. You are served on a banana leaf and unlimited portions of different chutney's and sambhar are part of your meal.
