The food was awesome at taste. This place is neatly maintained. We took mini tiffins to try all the varieties and we loved every item. They gave podi and ghee separately. Coffee is must try. We loved the food, service and the maintenance.

The restaurant is ok, serves average food, but not sure why there is no much wait, price on the higher side. Even the service is not so great, just because customers keep coming, no one talks nicely to even take order.
