Friends and I (from the UK) wanted to try the local cuisine and this place had good reviews and you eat off banana leaves. But the experience wasn't pleasant.

Podi Idly here is very good. Sweet pongal (Chakkera pongali) also is very good. They sell those podies which can be used as side dishes for dosa or any other item

Treat your tongue to the mouth watering south indian dishes in murugan idli. The podi dosa and podi idli with the dripping ghee from it is just unmatched. Also do try jigardhanda which is an icecream-milkshake combo.

Nice and tasty foods are served. The prices are reasonable. But they offer milk and coffee only. Should have tea as well. The tosai tastes really amazing. Their ghee roast is one of the best roast. Good servings.
