Had been to this place earlier several times. But this time found out the taste and the people working there are different and its not the same Mess. Even though the food was ok to eat, it was never onpar with olden days. People who like traditional food ( like No onions on Poriyal ) should keep off this place.... More

I went there last week. Maybe I should have kept my expectations down, I was quite disappointed with the fare. It was only 8:45-9 and I had only dosai and poori for tasting.
