Special meals which are priced Rs. 185 is not what is stated in the menu and it is a total scam. It is almost the same as regular meals and you don't get all the special items stated under the meals. So, you end up with normal meals and paying 2 times the cost of the meals.

Good and spacious restaurant. Situated at the Ground Floor of Hotel Raya's Grand. Just opposite to Holy Mahamaham Tank. South Indian Lunch is OK. Break fast items viz. Idly, Dosa, Pongal... etc are good. Service is OK... Restaurant is well maintained.
