The food is awesome - all traditional dishes taste exactly the way it should be, the sambar is just the right amount of tangy (not sweet), the rasam is... More

Always been a patron of Cafe Mysore, but visited Cafe Madras on one occasion. Was pleasantly surprised by the food! Not in love with the sambhar though:(
