When I moved to Sunnyvale, I was able to identify this place first as it was just next to Namaste Plaza grocery store. Since then, I've been here quite few times and every consecutive time the quality and taste of food was going down. The place has Telugu speaking people which was a plus, everything else was going down. If... More

A little hole in the wall food joint with a grocery store attached. They are known for their thali which can easily serve more than one person for less than 10 bucks. Do not expect any table service. Plastic wobbly chairs and tables. The only thing missing is the consistency.

Swathi Tiffins adds to the list of few Indian restaurants serving vegetarian food (and no meat). This is located at a good spot close to many different companies and attracts a good crowd during lunch.  I was not happy that my company amex card was refused here and had to dig into my pockets for currency notes which was already running...

A very authentic south india "self service" restaurant, it is very conveniently located right on the Lawrence Expressway. The dishes are extremely authentic and their sambar was one of the best I've had, even rivalling that of the ones you get in India! There is an attached Indian superbazar where you can shop for a very good selection of Indian... More

In bay area there are many South Indian places but the taste of the food is not consistent on every visit. Probably cook changed or re-heated food, but this place I have visited almost once in every month for last one year, It is the same taste and quality. If you like South Indian Tiffins, this is a good place.
