No great ambience, but bustling crowd all the time being very near to Meenakshi temple. The taste of the food is good, fresh and of moderate price. Good place for takeaway also.

Truly local famous historic restaurant in the heart of madurai near the central temple. Don’t go there for a nice meal with good service, but go for the best dosa around and a good local experience. Highly recommend it!
