If you want to sample some south Indian food in Port Blair head straight to this place. The idli-dosa staple here is great. The place is crammed though and there is constant footfall so prepare to be jostled around while eating.

The hotel is right in the middle of the market, small place for a quick eat. They serve authentic south Indian food Possibly the tastiest in the islands clean and fresh preparation If you reach late the stuff may finish.( we reached at 1030 and did not get any idly or vada)

You get very good south Indian Veg food here, including meals, dosas, idlis, vada, etc. But, the space is very small & can house only around 20 people. Non-AC but much more affordable and tastier than Annapurna

Hotel Kattabomman is a small, well maintained hotel in Port Blair. We went to Hotel Kattabomman for breakfast. Tried Masala Dosa and Vada. Quality food with great taste and quick service.

Visited this restaurant for breakfast. We ordered Vada and Idli. They were quick to service our orders. Vada and Idli had authentic South Indian taste and they were simply delicious. This is a small restaurant but is very well maintained, neat and clean and the taste and quality of food served is great.
