NileGuide Expert tip:
Eat with your fingers to best savor the rice and curries. That's the traditional way of eating South Indian food.
, Local Traditional
Anticipate a bit of a wait as mile long lines to get a table here is common. It's a good indication of this restaurant's popularity with the locals. It's all worth it when the food arrives at your table -
a sumptuous combination of white rice, topped with your choice of thick dhal
(lentil gravy), chicken or fish curry, vegetables and pappadum
crackers. There are large tables to share; head over to the food counter for a tantalizing selection of South Indian meat, seafood and vegetable dishes. Order their chicken varuval
(dried spicy chicken) and deep fried calamari with curry leaves and chili. It's almost like a ritual how each dish is served onto your banana leaf. First the rice is placed in the middle; followed by the various condiments in a row above the steaming rice and lastly your choice of curry is drizzled over the rice. Service is warm and attentive; your banana leaf doesn't stay empty for too long.
