Even as early as 3:05PM, when all the other fancy names close, this was like a blessing for our hungry group. Cauliflower Manchurian (they might call it cauliflower 65) is fantastic, moderately spicy for any palate but very tasty, and HUUUUGE portion. Cocunut milk Aappam...More

Attracted by the Appams served here. Typical chettinad curries served with appams. This place has ambur mutton biriyani which is awesome. But dont expect staffs to be good, they can even play prank at you in the kitchen.

If you like spicy Indian Food, I really recommend Aachi Aapakadai! I've been to India 22 times, and this definitely tastes like Chennai. Love the Dosa.
