Food
“It caters all types of Non Vegetarian spicy south Indian Food. From Bone marrow omelette, mutton mince fry balls , Rabbit Biryani , Curry dosas and also sea food .. Go with an open mind to just taste the variety of food .Don't expect a high service standard. You may be pushed by their up-selling to order more than you can eat. The greasy spicy food can fill you up quickly. One visit to this place is a must when you are in Madurai”
