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!

One great place to refresh your tastebuds. A place where you can get authentic Indian food. The ambiance is of southern part of India and it will go hand un hand with the food. An experience which u cannot miss!
