Consistency good for south Indian Food. Personally go there only for Idly and Dosa. It has ample parking and very high hygiene standards.

Excellent south Indian vegetarian fare. Idlis, chutney, sambhar the best in the city. Restaurant décor is old world style, and the waiters are very attentive. Quiet place where you can read the morning newspaper and enjoy a leisurely breakfast.

This is right on Kodambakkam High Road very near to Gemini Circle. Ample parking space is available. We went for lunch with our colleagues. Chola Battura was good, Curd Vada is not upto our expectation. You get Thali meals also.Recommended for a normal lunch.

Northi indian meal was just average. South Indian Thali would be a better choice. Glass of Rusam was good.
