The best idli, ven pongal, vadai, thosai with 4 different kinds of chutney are served in this little restaurant. We enjoyed every bite of our meal and to finish off we relished on their filter coffee and jigurthanda drink. Highly recommend and will definitely return.

With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of
Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander
past traditional barbershops while local residents in
brightly coloured saris patronize retailers from
decades past. Peruse streets lined with colourful
shops as the aroma of curry tempts you to indulge.
Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts
and take in the stalls selling bright flowers,

Too early to make a judgement for the hospitality they have earned. They are known to serve people at reasonable rates. Their purpose is very clear : serve food. As Subham said; this may be a One-Off situation.
