The hotel is just located outside the temple and claimed as morethan 50yrs age old hotel. You can enjoy authentic south indian brahmin food at very reasonable rate.
This was quite an interesting experience! My son and daughter-in-law took us there and we were a little apprehensive at first, seeing the location. An unpretentious room in a side street, the crowds of people lining up convinced us that we were in for a good food experience. There is no welcome- you just sit at the next empty table... More
This is a place where you would get tasty home made food at a decent price. Everybody in Kumbakonam knows of this place. The mess is mostly crowded and hence it is best to get a take home parcel.
I spent 2N/ 1D day in Kumbakonam during my visits to the Navagraha Temples. I decided that one meals should be had at Mami mess. Ask any Auto guy he will take you there. Nothing fancy , I went inside after taking necessary permissions hoping to meet the mami. But I was told that the mess is now being run... More
Mami's mess was interesting in that we got home-cooked meals the way we'd eat at home. Simple, unpretentious food. Sadly, the building owner from the U.S. wants to tear down the house and so the lady is going to move out of the present location in a few months.
basic hygeine was missing. table cleaner served; they could not manage the crowd effectively. only pro i could think of is that its close to the temple. food was tasty though. cashier or manager showed bad attitude (take it or leave it). will not recoomend this to anyone.
I stayed in kumbakonam for 4 days and had almost all my meals in Maami's mess. The place is not swanky like the mordern hotels (might be read as not so clean) but the food nevertheless was homey and strictly how kumbakonam would have it. I saw the regulars on sunday evening taking a walk and having the breakfast here... More
While this restaurant has a very homely (read-not so clean) ambiance, we expected good, home-made taste. Maybe, because of the time the menu was very limited and even the dosas were sub-par.
