I went there with some friends. Its a good place serving very nice south India food. Badam halwa is must try. Its too heavy but relishing. Dosas, idly, dahi wada, etc are all just fine. Must go.

Very tasty food specially if you want to try authentic southindian taste while on bangalore trip. This place is a must visit. Only thing that disappointed me coz items like dosa upma was very oily.

Thank Shruti V
