Great South Indian food. Good masala dosa. They also have a good combination plate. Reasonably price. But expect long waits

The dosas here are just superb!!
In fact, anything we eat here has always tasted excellent.
The place is so busy throughout the day. Once we reached at 9Pm; and they were literally running out of food.!!

Superb food. If you want a hole-in-the-wall Indian restaurant, then this is it!!

This restaurent serves delicious spicy south indian food at low prices. The only thing that I wish they could improve is the look and feel of the place. The seats are not comfortable and the service is spotty. If you care only about food then its the best.

Another top ethnic food gem in Houston. I have been here many times with friends, family, and kids. And it has been delicious and affordable every time. Yes, it can get crowded, but for a good reason. I consider it a good sign that it is usually full of Indians, who know what this food should taste like. It is not fast food. Take your time and enjoy the place. The dahi puri is like an explosion of deliciousness--you must try it. Get a few plates to share and you will be happy and full for well under $10/person.

I had high expectations of this place with it getting rave reviews from friends but found the fare to be average. Chaat was ok, not that great, mysore dosa and pesarettu were fine too. The place is always packed and the wait time is long. It was really loud too when we went. I would not recommend going here with young kids.
