We visted here during odd hours! That is around 4 or 5pm. The place was almost empty. I was craving for a good dosa for months and the Mysore masala dosa and chicken dosa were just perfect! We had the chicken biryani as well. It wasn't the best but definitely better than many places.

Very good food and overall experience. Just being picky - I'd say the sambar (lentils) could be a little milder/sweeter & the Dosas should come with both coconut & red chutneys

Very nice food and staff! Would've given 6 but they used some time to deliver our dessert, which we had to order twice. All in all a very good experience.
