Once a place known for good south indian food, the place has lost it's charm. The food is average and service could be better

Even though the food was ok to eat, it was never onpar with olden days. People who like traditional food ( like No onions on Poriyal ) should keep off this place.... More

First of all please don’t search for this hotel in Kumabakonam (as I did), as this hotel is not at all situated within the Kumabakonam city.

Regular visitor to Swamimalai and have seen the decline in this Mess's service from early days. Not the same anymore. Try if you've to.

I went there last week. Maybe I should have kept my expectations down, I was quite disappointed with the fare. It was only 8:45-9 and I had only dosai and poori for tasting.
