Went after reading all reviews ,1 star for the ambience .Ordered I iddly and madras coffee .Iddly was too cold with no taste and the chutneys came with it ,honestly made me think what it was .There were supposed to be coconut chutney which tasted like some think powder with water and ginger chutney which was awful and some thing more and ya Sam bar .I ate barely once spoon iddly and sipped the madras coffee which just water mixed with it light some coffee powder with tinge of milk .Sorry it was not all upto mark .Wasted my time driving up there for Indian food

We had kind of given up on Indian restaurants because we were so put off with the stale food and terrible service and horrible ambiance. But this Saturday we decided to give this joint a try, and were pleasantly surprised - the food was very well prepared and service wasn't too bad. Most Indian restaurants look shabby on the inside but this restaurant had nice lighting and decor. We ordered the chili paneer dosa (which wasn't on their lunch menu - but they agreed to make it for us - nice gesture), mantra basket - which was a chaat (snack item made with yogurt) and idly/vada sambar combo and salt lassis. Everything was really yummy! The sambar and chutneys were not watered down which was a nice change from some of the other Indian restaurants we have been to.

Very nice space, quiet. Service prompt and friendly. Food was excellently prepared; wide vegetarian selection. Personally, I think the best in Atlanta. Particularly recommend the Eggplant Chat as an opener.

Nice ambience and friendly service crew. An elaborate spread of vegetarian dishes in the buffet which makes it easier to choose what one wants to eat. The Mango Lussy is recommended.

We frequent this restaurant and its counterpart Madras Chettinaad in Alpharetta. Overall, it's the best South Indian food (dosa, uttapam, etc.) in the metro area. Ambiance is casual but nice and clean since the renovation. The best deal is the lunch buffet which includes a few Punjabi items to get your fix. Some of my favorite items including the bhel, vada sambar, and dosa.
