people in below poverty line cannot afford aappams here, because of its cost. normal small restaurants supply aappams with superb taste at reasonable rates.4 times extra cost is levied here.in the name of side dish they supply small qty of non-veg items, chicken,mutton etc,collects bigger amount.those visit here once, wont come back again.

I have been to Nalaas outlet in Chromepet as well as the one in Coimbatore.Being an Appam fan I would say with this price, we cannot hog much becoz its pocket burning.

Food in this place is good as in any other Nala's aapakadai. But I would not recommend to dine here as this is not that clean. You can order and take away with you.

Have been to Nalas a number of times. The prices are reasonable and the food is generally good. The Garlic Chicken Kebab is a favorite of mine and its delicately prepared. The Appam varieties are good too. A fairly decent place considering the price.
