Foursquare Tips

  • A standout Indian restaurant specializing in spicy regional Chettinad cuisine.
  • Try the Chettinadu specialities - garlic curry (sounds odd/intense but is delicious. Garlic melts like butter) and egg appam were delicious. Always get rasam in a South Indian restaurant!
  • Lunch buffets Veg for $11 and $12 for Non-Veg!
  • The goat here, cut into boneless chunks, is used more to accent the dish than it is to drive it. While bigger chunks may give you a burst of gameiness, the flavor is more meaty and spice-driven.
  • Very nice lunch. House specials suggested were an interesting experience. Good value for money for lovers of Indian cuisine
  • Get out while you can ! Service is horrible,toilets have no latch,food is bad.I m an eggetarian & I got chicken in my curry.When complained d manager actually had the gall 2 say tat egg is chicken!!!
  • The food was great and very authentic. But I wish they had turned on the A/c. Enjoyed the food with sweating all the time.
  • The whole garlic curry is a MUST try. Never had anything like that before. Also, the fresh lemon soda was a refreshing soft drink.
  • This Southern Indian restaurant specializes in the foods of Chennai. Try the egg appam, a rice-flour pancake with a fried egg, as well as the ghee-slicked dosa. To drink, order the lemon soda.
  • The chicken 65 is a great starter! I also enjoyed the palak paneer!
  • Very authentic south indian food! Tastes exactly like in India
  • The food has consistently been great. The chicken 65 is perfect amount of spice and flavor but I highly recommend the Chicken kothu parotta! Great portion size with friendly staff.
  • Good selection of south Indian eats and a few north Indian dishes too. The menu here is somewhat heavy on the meat entrees and few are boneless. I had the vegetarian Thali..good sampling of dishes!
  • The chicken lollipop, dosa and the shrimp biryani are great. If you are on the hunt for something really spicy, go for the Drums of Fire (at your own risk)
  • The level of spice is great. The taste, not so much.
  • Good Indian restaurant. If you like to eat spicy you will love to eat here. If you don't ask to have a mild meal (even the medium spicy is really hot!) great choice of north and south India
  • Order the appam and chicken curry
  • Authentic South Indian food and they have an unlimited thali deal for the weekdays
  • Go authentic or go home. This is not your typical Indian joint. Ask your Indian friends for suggestions and don't forget to down a beer. Cheers!
  • Crab Curry, Biryani, Fried Pomphret......Amazing food! Blows my mind everytime!
