The food has always been outstanding here, and that's why we keep coming back. The service is exceptionally poor, as always. It's like they make a special effort to get your order wrong, snap at you, take an inordinately long time to deliver basic essentials (e.g. water, cutlery, napkins), and shuttle you in and out before you have finished your appetizers, main course etc. They really really need to work on improving their service quality. It is noticably sub-par.

This is the greatest place for dosa short of Jackson Heights. It's fantastic, and such a great value. They're always super nice and accommodating for spiciness.

Visited this restaurant on 7/7/2012. Service was utterly disappointing.The server gave us the empty glass for water and disappeared for 15 min without even filling the glass. Food is average. I am from southern india, so i know how the south indian food should taste like. Except Rava dosa i didn't like any other item including sambhar. Don't ask about biryani- I had much better biryani on the streets of New York. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

I have been eating in this place since they opened in 2005. The quality of food has gone down drastically and the cost has gone up. The idlis I ordered during breakfast and dinner were old and heated in microwave. The chutney smelled.

This place has always had a problem with service. They seem to take pride in having very rude waiters who rush you during your meal (before your appetizers are finished, they will bring the main course and clutter your table with huge dosas and take your plates away) They frequently make mistakes with orders, and most annoyingly, NEVER apologize. The food used to be unique and outstanding; it has both gone downhill, and now faces competition from some other local places, so this place should stop being so complacent.
