This place is infuriating. We were treated terribly, and for no apparent reason. Unlike some other reviewers we are not Indian, but we were refused service ostensibly because they were "cleaning" the restaurant between serving times. We were allowed to take a table, but then were asked to leave for 20 minutes. Since we had three hungry kids and a... More

this one is one of the popular joints in gokarna. located in the heart of the town at gokarna beach, the place attracts a lot of people, specially during lunch hours. the food over here is quite nice and the portion is quite filling too. the only turn off with this place is that all orders are prepaid. so either...

Loved this place, we ate here everyday for our 11 days at Gokarna. Addicted to their Masala Dosas, tried other places, but they have the best. The pineapple juice is to die for. North Indian food not as good as the South Indian food. My son was still addicted to western food and then he was won over by Dal,... More

Please do not visit if you are true Indian. You will get same treatment as that of cats and dogs.. 1. Owners or counter people are extremely RUDE.... You will feel insulted, take it from me... 2. They are abnormally polite (on the knees) with foreigners.. 3. You won't get tea or coffee ALONE... They may serve if your order... More

Orders a massala dosa. Really bad. No hoor massala and very little as well. To top that, the dosa itself was fluffy and way too thick. It resembled a failed pancake. The sambar was too watery and in the off chance you just would like some more sambar, expect to pay extra.

Has the old classic charm, yummy food and affordable price. I have tried masala dosa and poori. Next time would like to try other cuisine. They are supportive of customers even with the demonetization issue which is currently happening in India.

This restaurent though small seems to be very popular with tourists and local population at Gokarna. They offer fresh tasty South Indian snacks. Service is fast and efficient. Though food is tasty, the ambience inside and particularly outside the restaurent is not nice.
