This eatery is home to traditional, spicy South Indian meals. The food here is great- wholesome,fresh,authentic and tasty. It's spacious and can cater to many at a time. It's clean and the service is fast and great!

The quality of food has gone down. It used to be very good. Sad to see the decline. It is a soacious restaurant with good service. There is a lot of competition in this area which put out similar food at a higher quality.

Been to this place couple of times in last 3 months, given that they're too many Indian restaurants around Sunnyvale. Place is spacious with parking and very good for family dine in. Tasted variety of food and they've all been to expectations. I would say this place is a dollar expensive compared to other places, visited for name sake. I've... More

Restaurant was crowded. Waiter took the order without noting down and as suspected he forgot couple of items. Till most of us finished food, one person didnt get the food she ordered. I had to go and remind several times. They were not sorry about missing the ordered food. Food was average. Could be better.

Though the standard of other parameters like clenliness,less wait time and service remain same as was in initial stage I feel the quality of food has gone down .It is so spicy that children can't touch any dish.

Mostly crowded but best place for Indian veg food. I had been here for lunch and dinner and completely love it. Good service. Tried kheema idli and it was very good!

I miss this restaurant in Bangalore, however got to eat in Sunnyvale. Crowded most of the time, serves authentic vegetarian south Indian dishes with good spread to chose from. Can't pin point a particular dish as all of them are tasty. Our group tried almost all the dishes from the menu and no complaints from any one. If in San... More

Had casual dinner here with a guest and it was delicious. One word of caution: when they say spicy, they mean it. Our Mediterranean tongues were on fire. I recommend ordering the big combo and a dosa if you are two people ordering. It was the perfect amount for us.
