I am not Indian nor vegetarian, but I love to try new foods. I called, told the staff what I like to eat, and they suggested a dish that was wonderful, tasty, and undoubtedly more nutritious than what I usually eat. Highly recommended.

We happened upon this little gem on a Sunday afternoon. Even though they were preparing for the afternoon break before the dinner rush, the service was perfect. The masala dosa was great! The sambar and spicy chutney complimented it well. The vadas were quite tasty....More

I love the rasam and dosas here. This is a great family restaurant. I always come here for dosas when I am in the area. The paper dosas are thin and crunch and delicious. The rasam is soothing to the palate. highly recommended.

IF your vegetarian and like Indian food then you have to come try this place. I tend go for the dosa section and was as the idly and vada. Its a basic in terms of décor but good in taste

The complimentary rasam tasted like diluted ketchup. Their order system is rigid, i.e. cannot order appetizers independently; example cannot order vada, must order idly vada combo to get vada ! Speaking of the vada. it was not soft. The wait for food exceeded 40 minutes....More
