Since 1953, this hotel exsist in Mylapore. It was started as a tiny eatery years back, now it is a popular hotel, with a separate air condition wing. The best food one can have hear is, the vazhaipoo vada, keera dosai and variety vadas. They are served with variety chutneys and sambhar. This hotel is surrounded by, art work of Gods and Goddess, with devotional music in the back ground. Adai Aviyal, degree coffee(filter coffee) are one of the popular dishes to taste too.

As we come out of Kapaleeshwar temple, a straight 5mt walk takes you to karpagambal mess. For the past 7 years, I have been visiting this hotel, where they serve dishes on a Banana leaf. They are also famous for pickles, podis, vattals, appalams. Staff are very courteous and ambience is beautiful. A place to have the best, healthy, yummy food.

Went with high expectation; but failed miserably. Had gone there 5-6 years ago and had a feast. Even dosa and sambar was not the usual.

Went there after nearly 10 years with my family and the experience was very very disappointing
The kichadi was very bland - not spice / no salt
Dosa and keerai adai were not fully cooked.
The kurma for the chappati was very bad
Will not visit again
Dont have hifh hopes when you visit
Average price is Rs.80+ paid Rs.585 for 7 dish

Visited this place for a light lunch with Lakshmi our guide from Storytrails. I guess this was the conclusion of our walking tour. Ate a variety of snacks. Delicious! We sat in the air conditioned part of the mess. Cool and clean. Staff were friendly. Definitely worth a visit!
