One of the major food joints in the city that's not to be missed... Particularly good food non veg stuff. Their kola urundais (mutton meat balls) are a must try. Prices are quite high these days though.

Very good food but in little expensive amount. You have to wait more for your order but its ok when the food is so tasty.

This place was in our list for a long time and finally we made it last year. Their Non-veg options are mouth watering. Loved the mutton balls, crab omelette, rabbit, fish curry, fish fry etc. We went for lunch and had meals. Loved all that we had from there. Food is a bit spicy but that's how we love it.... More

Peaceful place to eat with family. Especially நல்லி ஆம்பளேட்!! நண்டு boneless etc. Just two bad things is price is high.. Anyways can be affordable for the variety and taste. The last thing is AC flow is bad at the last end of the restaurant. Kindly check it.

Its not the natural Madurai cuisine. Its a commercialized place and the waiters dont serve, they sell dishes, or you feel like it! The fish taste good; not outstanding. The place is also little rundown over the years. I think, i have gone to the orginial facility.
