“Tasty, Spicy South Indian food”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

The food here was tasty. I like their special spicy chettinad chicken.. The fish fry was also good. Overall the ambience with MGR songs was awesome addtion to their tasty meal provided here. The pricing was worth it for the quality of food..

“Anytime favourite”
Reviewed 22 August 2012 via Local Picks

You can try anything over there. I love their dosa. The Ambience was good with MGR Songs. Their Chicken Biryani was good. Also the fish varieties.

“Good biriyanis/south Indian food”
Reviewed 12 July 2012 via mobile

Amma's restaurant is a good restaurant serving delicious food at a slightly expensive price than normal. The presentation of the food is very bad. In fact, after a deeper thought, would say there is no presentation. Some restaurants believe in just serving food to its customers and not really worrying about presentation and this is one of its kind. Avoid going during lunch time as serving on time is impossible to expect. One may have to wait nearly 25 minutes for their dish to arrive. I went for lunch recently and the waiter took nearly 25 minutes for the biriyani to be served. Leaving that behind, I would end up visiting amma's again but never during a busy period. Guess it costed me 200rs including a juice and a biriyani.
