My daughter and I were craving authentic vegetarian South Indian cuisine as a special treat. Having read the positive reviews and seeing the desi crowds at this highly recommended restaurant, we were shocked to see that all the food was served on styrofoam plates and bowls. Styrofoam cups for drinks and plastic utensils on plastic trays. We had already ordered... More

Clean, but pretty basic dining arrangement - chairs, tables and styrofoam plates, bowls and cups. All the items that we tried were reasonably good - Onion Rava, Idli Sambar, Dahi vada and tamarind rice; Salt lassi, mango lassi and coffee. Items are also reasonably priced. It is a self-service place and periodically long waiting lines (we were there on Sun... More

We have been visiting this restaurant since the year 2000! The menu has some staples, and more or less, the taste is consistent. Out of the now dozens of Indian restaurants in the area, this one is one of the few vegetarian. The food is from the south of India, and they have added one "chana bhatura" as a north... More

I visited around 7pm on a sunday evening its quiet at that time, very few people. We need order the food at the counter. The prices are reasonable for the quantity and the quality. The rava dosa and chole aren't greasy. Taste really good. By the time we finished our food it is crowded with people. Definite visit if you... More

I have lived in Vienna for years and have never paid much attention to this unassuming restaurant. I am not particularly knowledgeable about Indian food although I have been to many Indian restaurants - I guess I've never had South Indian. I didn't know 1/2 of what I was ordering, but everything I tried was delicious. The atmosphere inside is... More

Amma's is authentic non-carnivore Indian cooking. There are many options, including varieties of dal and many subjis (vegetables). Sweets also. The spicing of everything is just right. The atmosphere is informal and comfortable and you can sit in Amma's and eat or take everything to go. Friends and I have gone there for years and years.

Every time we crave dosas, we make the trip to Amma, the Vienna location. Food is excellent and consistent. It's a self service restaurant.
