“Idlis and dosa in Mumbai = Cafe Madras”
Reviewed 3 July 2012

If waiting in the heat for half an hour = good food.. Cafe Madras comes out with flying colors. The aroma while you are waiting sets the gastronomical juices flowing...and when you eat the first soft fluffy mouthful of the idly you know it was worth the wait. Another favourite is the ragi dosa crisp and well done. Do not forget to end the meal with the South Indian Kaapi (coffee).Value for money soul food. One star less is for the wait in the sun.No reservations accepted.

“Something magical about the food. Every bit tastes great.”
Reviewed 26 June 2012

- Mouth watering south indian food.
- The dosas are crisp.
- The idlis are soft.
- The coconut chutney is always fresh, espacially the dry chutney is yummy.
- The dosas shall always be as good as they always are, no two variations.

“never thought its that good..”
Reviewed 31 May 2012

as a tam, i feel there are better places for a good dosa / sambar around matunga. cafe madras is hyped and we have come out disappointed repeatedly.

the sambar, chutney is not that great... ambience average like any of these other places... the crowds a lot.. left us wondering for what!
