I have not visited this café for three years as I am a meat eater. Nevertheless last Sunday, my friend who is a vegetarian and I decided to eat here for his benefit. As previously, the place is always packed, and 90% of customers are of Indian and Pakistan origin, which is unsurprising, yet I do feel that Americans are missing out on one of the cheapest places to eat in Houston. Mind you, they won't visit if there is no description to view on the menu. Management please note.
Let it be known that although the prices are low, the quality is very good. People do not keep returning without good reason.
The quality of food is very similar to home cooked, and the food is neither oily or greasy, proportions are good. It's a great place to go for a mid afternoon snack or a light lunch. Much on the menu is southern.
I went for the mysore dosa, which was as expected, spicy and most enjoyable, and the mango shake was good too. My friend went with Pav Bhaji and popular with many customers. Tried some of his meal and it was very good and not too spicy.
Considering Udipi's is a short walk away, this place wins on the lower prices, and the volume of customers speaks for it's self.
Parking can be a problem as there are several restaurants in the immediate vicinity. However, this is clearly a very popular venue, and I will visit more often.
The place is not fancy, in fact it is quite plain, and you order at the counter and give them your table number, and when ready they shout your number out, and you go and collect it yourself, there is no waiting on tables. Definitely worth visiting.
