I discovered this friendly, casual & most authentic South Indian vegetarian restaurant thanks to friends about 33 years ago, and have been frequenting it ever since. More than delicious (though fairly spicy) food from South India. Excellent non-stop service. Can get pretty crowded & noisy at peak mealtimes owing to its great popularity.

We went there for a late lunch at around 4pm. However, the place was still crowded. We were a group of 7 adults and 2 kids. We ordered dosa, idli, lemon rice, curd rice and chanch. All the items tasted good. However, "chanch" deserves a special mention. Try it out, if going there.

All the food is good and generally people go for the dosas but I visit every time I'm in India just for the dahi vada which is amazing! It's got a hint of sweet and some crunch and spice and overall delicious!!

Have visited the place 1000 times , but i feel now its deteriorating . Needs an overhaul in terms of decor , cutlery , sitting . Last visit to Sagar was very disappointing . The cutlery was dirty . sambhar and chutney was not of good taste . Despite of asking for more helping of chutney , it didn't arrive... More

We went for our brunch at this famous South Indian Restaurant & ate to our hearts content. Apart from the usual stuff, we tried Chettinad Masala Dosa and the Hot Garlic Dosa which were fantastic. What better way to end the brunch than having a nice Filter Coffee. Woof.........

The day we visited was crowded with people waiting for a call to enter. Once inside the place is compact & the service is super fast. The South Indian - Thali lunch was yummy and filling. For South Indian snacks/Dosa lovers this is nice place .
