Don’t know why this place has got so many good reviews and also features in the LP book. Most we have paid for a Kingfisher in all the ‘dry’ states of the south. Waiters seem to want to push as much beer on you as...soon as you walk in. The curries were also tiny! My Kashmiri Aloo Dum had sprinkles of pineapple and watermelon on top, which I never experienced in having this dish in Kashmir or the north in the 3 months I was up there. As it’s in the LP guide the only patrons were foreigners. If anything is a draw to this place it’s the view of the city roof tops and the temple, from quite a distance! There has to be better local restaurants than this or if looking for tasty western food go to Phil’s bistro!More

We visited this lovely rooftop restaurant after a big day of touring the city's famous temples. We found a table with great views and sat back enjoying a cold drink and watching the sunset over the landscape below. And just when we thought life couldn't...get much better, out came the delicous food. Some of the best meals we'd enjoyed: fresh, tasty and full of flavour. The perfect end to a big day out in magical Madurai.More

Honestly, it was quiet when we ate at this restaurant but that was due to the weather, potentially wet. BUT, we ate here three times in three days - it was that welcoming and the food so tasty. The waiting staff were very helpful when...I had a dodgy stomach one evening and suggested alternatives to our choices which would be more easily digested - much appreciated.More

Food was cold, over salted and undistinguishable! Palak was from a tin and tasted disgusting! Everything looked and tasted as if the chef took just one minute to prepare it! At almost 1000 IR for two mains and softdrinks it was the most expensive meal...we had in South India and the worst! Really disappointing!More

Oct 13, 2019 - Had dinner at the Surya Veg Restaurant. It was an open Restaurant on the Terrace. To the open sky, the food was served and the food was yummy!

I went for the view and the opportunity to take a nighttime shot of the temple, Really lovely spot. Great views of the temple and town. but my first bite of aloo mutter with cheese-garlic naan was to die for! Delicious! Friendly and welcoming staff....Really enjoyed the food, which I thought is reasonably priced too, given the view. And not more I don't think than most pure veg places. Full service and they take credit cards.More

I suspect many of the reviews here are staff written. I arrived upstairs at 4pm, the advertised opening time. I was told to wait until 4.15pm for the kitchen to open. At this time I made my order. I was surprised that it took 1...hour for the meal to be prepared and served, received at 5.15pm, and after meals were served to other guests who arrived after me. The meal was cold and crumbly, and was burnt (charred black around the edges and not pleasant). I triple checked to see if I was at the right place, which I was. Would not return.More

We walked around the corner from our Hotel Royal Court to this restaurant for a late lunch. Escorted by the doorman to the lobby cafe, we discovered the desired roof top restaurant only opened at 4 PM. The waiter/manager said the menu was the same,...so he offered a table and we joined 12 locals and 2 French speaking ladies. We ordered 2 sweet corn soups and an order of spring rolls. Soup was hot, filled with veggies, and delicious, as was the large segmented spring roll. With a 600 ml Pepsi, the bill totaled ~$5.More
