Visited the place after surfing for eateries to have breakfast post blood test for sugar. ended up at this joint. The food was ok, had ordered masala dosa and kesari bath (sooji halwa) with coffee. The coffee was good , filter coffee.The ambienece is just ok. The joint seems to be famous for take away's and home delivery.

Lodhi Road’s growing popularity for food is luring a lot of foodie clientele. Many eateries have recently sprouted up but Chidambaram’s Madras Hotel is quite an old name. It had started off with serving authentic south Indian food and later added a few Chinese dishes. Over the years I feel the taste has gone down a little bit, maybe because... More

We have been visiting the restaurant for good south indian food , which without doubt is superb and the cost is low. This time we tried the health food option ie Raagi Dosa and rava dosa with lemon soda and ending it with filter coffee. The raagi dosa is definitely worth a try esp for the health conscious. The filter... More

We were referred to the restaurant by the shop owner next door. Great place for the fast hunger and you do wish to get excellent and fresh food anyway. Basic restaurant outfit but clean. An experience to recommend.

I ordered home delivery, never been to the place. The special thali and veg idli arrived in an hour as promised. Somehow parantha (as ordered) was replaced by two very little pooris (very less quantity indeed). Anyhow, the other little servings brightened me up. The mango icecream had melted of course. Veg idlis were nice and so was the delectable... More

Practical tips- - It looks small from the outside but has multiple rooms inside with lots of seating - The 3-in-1 dosa/idli/vada/uthapam is the specialty here. 1 plate is enough for 1 person.

If you can let go of the cool Ambiance of Sagar Ratna and done with the firang friendliness of Naivaidyam, try Chidambaram. It’s a small south Indian eatery in Khanna Market, Lodhi Colony. What made us write a review about this place is their attempt to take basic simple South Indian food beyond Masala Dosa and Uttapam. We recently went... More

The place is small, no issue as neat and clean enough for a working lunch - eat and scoot. Ordered a thali, served a raasam complimentary prior to the meal. Sambahr is just average. Vegetable and daal ok.
