“Quaint place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2012

The food was very, very good at this place. The dosas and idlys and even french toast were very good. The service is a bit slow though the the servers are a bit surly but I think that's part of the charm of this place.

Go armed with newspapers as that's what almost all the clientele seemed to do. Groups of old Indian men sit and discuss the news.

“Lovely place. Authentic south indian coffee.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2012

You cannot miss this place. The dosas are amazing and the coffee is out of the world. if you sit quitely and listen carefully, you can get to know of lot of short stories from the political and social minded people sitting around.

“old world charm”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2012

good south indian food .This eating place is located just on the mall road. I think that the basic ambiance of indian coffee houses in all over india remains the same.It provides good food at reasonable prices. It was very noisy with people from all walks of life enjoying gossip over a cup of coffee. We found that dosa and wada sambar was good in comparison to snacks. It is good restaurant for middle class
