Cripsy dosas, spicy curries, and delectable uthappams are the main draws at this family-run Indian restaurant. Authentic South Indian flavors and an all-vegetarian and vegan menu make this Tempe cafe a stand-out in the local Indian food scene. Almost any of the house specialties are winners, with dosas and uthappams dripping in savory homemade sambhar. For sure-fire flavor, try the Gobi Manchurian and Vegetable Manchurian dishes. Try the lunch or weekend brunch buffet for a good sampling of the menu.
