best authentic south indian food. Tried the proper south indian meal and it is the best. Their aloo curry is really good and should be tried. Great taste and hygienic. Some of the staff members can be a bit courteous though :-)

I always felt very comfortable.Rooms are cozy. People at the reception and others who attend are very friendly. The vegetarian food is very good since the inception decades ago.Very near the central place and you can just walk and do whatever you want. Good old Maris is known to me for the past 40 years

The restaurant is an absolute value for money , fresh and good tasting food with a good quick service . It is recommended if you want it light on your pocket and get a good meal. Parking is one reduced stress here as they offer free parking.
