We went for a weekday dinner with friends and the chicken dosa I had was fantastic, perfectly satisfying. The restaurant is cosy with nice atmosphere, service good and great value. Will go back.

This place offers an amazing dosa menu! There are plenty of choices for vegetarians, though it is a shame there is no paneer. Food is made fresh so be prepared for a bit of a wait. The masalas are delicious, crispy and full of flavour....More
