Bringing out the best South Indian at your doorstep. This cafe located at New Friends colony offers just the perfect Dosa..Delectably crispy on the outside with proper filling inside. And yes it has lots of ghee..(not for the faint hearted :P)..A mixture of South Indian Aroma and the beautiful interiors..this place is worth a visit. The chach is way awesome... More

If you're looking for some new things to try, this is the place to be. Try their ragi dosa or water dosa or the nice small vada type things. Its all amazing. And nice interesting decor to the place as well.

Very small cafe but great food, though from a small menu choice. Had vada to start - really hot and fresh. Fab chutneys, especially the tomato and coriander ones. Ended with a Mysore Masala Dosa. Foods ordered by colleagues all looked great as well. Wild return if in the area.

Authentic dishes from South Indian plateau. Mesmerising taste and good small place to take a break from hectic routines. Paddu and Malleshwaram 18 cross are dishes which one should try at this place.

Carnatic Cafe is one of my most favorite restaurants to have dosa and south Indian food. The variety and freshness of every dosa is just amazing. You can keep visiting everyday and never go out of exploring new type of dosa. If you love dosa or south Indian food, then a must visit for you.

Amongst the hustle and bustle of Greater Kailash 2 with all its bars and restaurants this place stands out. Very simple interiors and a uncomplicated menu. The staff was very good and the food was awesome.. in fact both my wife and me ended up packing some food and taking back.. I am certainly going back

Found ourselves in the rather dull and corporate Surayaa and needed to seek out something more authentic. The Carnatic Cafe was very close indeed hidden away in a small mall. Excellent filling dosas and other specialities in a small but busy restaurant with good atmosphere. Recommended.

I have eaten at Carnatic cafe for months now, and have now memorised their menu. so my recommendations for first time eaters is try the platters or the 18 cross. Just dont take too many dishes as the food is exceedingly ghee riach and heavy
