    Low to mediocre South Indian

    My complaints surround the service in this restaurant. I went with a party of 7 people and we ordered a lot of food. The waiter was rude when we asked innocent questions about the dishes and after we paid the bill he asked us to "leave if you won't be ordering anything else." It didn't even seem like anyone else was waiting for the table. In a city like New York, in a neighborhood with numerous other Indian restaurants, this one cannot afford to have the low quality servers it does. I won't be going back.

    If you are an Indian, then this is a South Indian place...and if you are a South Indian.. then this is certainly just "okay"...sambhar especially is far below standard...however, the variety is good and service is excellent..Certainly not the best...but if u r craving for dosa..then just visit this place

    Quality is going down

    This place used to be 'the go to' for south indian vegitarian food. However it seems like management/chef changed. They dropped the quality in service and food. I saw on one table they received check before their food arrived. Also they increased prices. Well, overall it's a big 'no no' place for me now.

    Quality inconsistent

    I have been frequenting this restaurant right from the time they opened and the quality while once very good, is now getting closer to being not much better than average. I would still recommend this place for those looking for an intro to south indian vegetarian food.
