“better than average”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2012

located in not so parking friendly places in outer circle of C.P., right below the erstwhile cult (now defunct) eatery Madras Hotel, this is one of the better looking south indian restaurants. the preparations are consistently good, though some may complain about the quantity of food. sambar helpings are rationed unless you pay for the extra helping. but chutneys redeem the day.
please go around 12-1230 in afternoon and 7-730 in evening to avoid waiting. two halls big enough but full to capacity in peak hours. sweets are also good and priced reasonably. i have tried them in middle-east as well--doesn't disappoint.overall thumbs up.

“Good food, decent pricing but be patient with - waiting time and staff attitude”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2012

There is always a waiting, no matter when you go here and that is probably because of its food and then, for its location. Staff might be overworked but we as customers do expect some hospitality & smiles and would be more willing to wait if these were taken care of :)
