You simply have to go out there and try it out. No amount of time spent on describing it will do ! The taste is unique. May be its something they mix in their sambhar - maybe their chutneys are made differently. May be its the small thimble full of pure ghee that is served separately and that you must... More

Traditional tasty vegetarian food. Crowded restaurant. Ambiance ordinary. Good value . I have visited the original restaurant near Lalbagh on several occasions but was a bit turned off by the service and the crowded dining room. I have visited the new place on Sampige road near the Mantri Mall. Good place for a traditional meal but would not recommend for... More

I decided to heed and go for South Indian lunch today. This place is not 5-star, but the food is near that mark! Simple, devoid of fancy plating but honest-to-goodness with refill(if one so like to do) and not heavy on one's tummy. And oh, so reasonable, will definitely visit again soon with the wage-earner in tow. Will be on... More

If you are not visiting when you visit Bangalore then you are really missing something in Bangalore. One of the pre-independent Hotels in Bangalore having... More

We went here to have a great lunch after almost standing in queue for around 45 min to give our names to the manager. The kosmari, chutney, poori, sagu is my favourite. Bisibelabath, no one can miss it. The onion raita is so tasty. Sambar is wholesome with lots of vegetables. Offlate, I heard, that the rice has soda or... More
