It was the most awesome gastronomic experience we have ever had in our entire trip. Mini aunty prepared a buffet of wonderful South Indian dishes. We got to have chicken fry,... More

Note that they do not serve lunch. And barely serve at all if they have no guests staying with them. English is practically unknown. No printed menu.

We came here on a Sunday evening not realising it was closed. The owner was kind enough to let us in anyway and cooked us up some amazing dosas. She was so lovely and accommodating and very reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend this place!

All cooked freshly and all delicious. Great value for money two with lime sodas and food for 3... More

We went to try out this place for lunch after reading the good reviews here. So happens that the place is open only for breakfast & dinner. Though it was closed, the owners were courteous to still host us for lunch and cook lunch to order. This is part of a cosy homestay and doesn't have any fixed menu. You... More
