They also have a small hidden garden that offers peaceful seating options. Their menu comprises of popular Indian dishes and curries such as Samosa and Chickpeas Curry.

What truly sets them apart is their South Indian offerings. Their Idlis were soft and spongy and the Masala Dosa was crisp. Both the items were served with Sambhar and three different types of Chutneys.
