We recently visited this famous fast food veg joint and we thoroughly enjoyed the food that was served to us. The sambar was simply superb and so was the Onion Rava Dosa that I had ordered. The button idlis submerged in sambar also delicious!!! The only complaint that we had about this restaurant was that service was a bit slow... More

What a true delicious healthy delight when you dine with them. They spoil you to the level where you will not feel like eating south indian from any other eateries. Their Thali options are amazing. Dont miss special Thali during lunch hours. Food is just amazing including Rice, Sambar, 2-3 grieves, salad and many more.

It was good to see that all South Indian Veg dishes under one roof. The tiffin items tastes good but coffee was not that much good. It is normal as road side coffee. But am not tried any lunch or dinner and all the times the place is crowdy.

We had dinner here, south India Thali was not available (it is available only for lunch). we ordered North Indian Thali, few dosas etc. The stuff was not so great and very spicy/hot. The ambience was also very basic, service poor as well.

The restaurant was clean and inviting. It was buzzing with activity. Almost all the tables were occupied. I spotted an empty table and eased myself in. Despite being very busy there was something that was positive and assuring. The customers were easy and relaxed, as if they frequented the place, and were part of the family. And so were the...
