If you are used to fine dining and / or have tasted real south Indian cuisine, then this place is not for you. Finding this restaurant took a bit of doing. If you're walking towards the Sule Pagoda from Traders Hotel, it is the first right hand turn. Walk about 3 short blocks and there is the restaurant (the sign is hidden because of street vendors). It is a very basic restaurant, benches with stools to sit on and a worn menu to boot. I ordered the masala dosa and the prawn curry thali. The dosa was very oily and the stuffing was a vegetable mix of carrots, onions, cauliflower and potatoes. The sambar was not authentic, it was a Burmese version of what it should be and the prawn curry had a Thai flavor to it - I was afraid to try the chutney (for fear of getting delhi belly). The prawn curry was greasy as well, but the potato curry was tasty - the chapathi that came with it was somewhat dry and brittle. It is the best south indian restaurant in Rangoon - but if you've sampled real south indian food, then you'll be disappointed. The rather basic nature of this restaurant also raises doubts about cleanliness and food hygiene - I survived without any incident but if you don't like what you see when visiting, go elsewhere.
The other reviewers are right about this place being cheap - the total bill for the masala dosa, prawn curry thali and a large bottle of water came to 4000 kyats (about $4 in USD - 2014) - can't beat that when compared to the prices I paid at the Traders hotel just for lunch.
