Step into any restaurant or even any small shops in Madurai, you will find amazing food but DEFINITELY NOT IN AMMA MESS! Gone are those good old tasty food.. I have seen foreigners here, probably to try "Madurai's best food" after being suggested by some random guy/guide or whatsoever.. Let me tell you, just go to KUMAR MESS. Period.

Had Mutton Dosa and Prawn Omlette as part of my Food trek and these 2 items are something which i have never tasted in my life. I was astonished to see when i glanced at the menu to order an omlete.

The restraunt is very good. It offers a lot of options to choose from also it's authentic cuisine. Has that actual taste but I feel it's expensive.

Decent food, bit expensive and too crowded. Hard to find seat. Their speciality omelettes are the best.
