“Good homely food”
Reviewed 18 October 2012

Mami's mess was interesting in that we got home-cooked meals the way we'd eat at home. Simple, unpretentious food. Sadly, the building owner from the U.S. wants to tear down the house and so the lady is going to move out of the present location in a few months.

“Food and service was bad”
Reviewed 29 December 2011

basic hygeine was missing. table cleaner served; they could not manage the crowd effectively. only pro i could think of is that its close to the temple. food was tasty though.
cashier or manager showed bad attitude (take it or leave it). will not recoomend this to anyone.

“Typical Kumbakonam delights”
Reviewed 12 November 2010

I stayed in kumbakonam for 4 days and had almost all my meals in Maami's mess. The place is not swanky like the mordern hotels (might be read as not so clean) but the food nevertheless was homey and strictly how kumbakonam would have it. I saw the regulars on sunday evening taking a walk and having the breakfast here almost like a tradition. I particularly enjoyed vendhiya dosai and sambar. Vadai could have been made with slight variation (we had keerai vadai almost everyday there) . If you are a pure veggie..and you are new to Kumbakonam..you will be at ease at Maami's mess.

While this restaurant has a very homely (read-not so clean) ambiance, we expected good, home-made taste. Maybe, because of the time the menu was very limited and even the dosas were sub-par.
