We hadn't booked and where there just after 7.30pm. Fitted up in, and drinks and menus arrived promptly. Food was very delicious, tasty and flavors spot on. Steady night, but well looked after by staff

This is the best dosa in town. As far as value for money is concerned it cannot be beaten. The sambals with the dosa were exquisite and the service 2nd to none. Highly recommended fir lunch!
