This restaurant has a great ambience with lip smacking veg food. The south indian thali can be tried with all the authentic dishes and kesari should not be missed at the end.

If you are willing to sit in a nice ambiance & dine like a king, you must visit to the place. The decor I good & hospitality is wonderful. Go for a Thali which has north Indian taste with a dash of south Indian taste. Curd rice along with some special south Indian accomplishment tastes awesome. Deep fried Lotus stem... More

The customer service is great, the food is amazing! Really tasty! All veggie. The idea is to try many traditional south indian dishes on one visit. You need to be really hungry, cause there´s a lot of yummy food.
