The best South Indian restaurant in Cincinnati by far. The ambiance is modest, the service decent and the prices very reasonable but the South Indian lunch buffet, especially on weekends is excellent and most satisfying. Dosas of all sorts, Idli, vada, pongal, chat and other appetizers are followed by many authentic South Indian main dishes including Aviyal, poriyal, sambar, rasa etc. At least 3 dessert items including Payasam are also always included. This restaurant was rated among the ten best restaurants of all types in the city by Cincinnati magazine last year. Try to get there before 1230 pm for the weekend buffet unless you like to wait in line. An ala carte menu is also available but in this place you are certainly better off with the buffet.

I was initially put off by the dark, run down exterior but so many co-workers raved about lunch here. So I put on my big girl pants and dared to try the lunch buffet. Oh my! The variety of yummy, home styled dishes made it easy to overlook the well worn banquet seats. Delish!

Had the simply amazing Amma Thali and believe me it was worth it. The right amount of spices made the dish worth it. Being a thanks giving day there wasn't as much rush but overall an excellent place to be. Will definitely visit again during any future stays in Cincinnati.

Great quality at a reasonable price! This past August, I happened to find myself on that stretch of Reading Road. I hadn't eaten there in a few years. I'd only been there for dinner in the past, but this time, I had the opportunity to try the lunch buffet. It was wonderful. There was lots of variety, many vegetarian options, and everything was delicious.
