As I walked in to this dingy place it looked more like the smuggler's den of 80s bollywood movies than a restaurant.
After a 5mins waiting time a waiter[they had just 2 guys attending almost 7 tables] came up with a glass of water, I asked him for a menu card and he was like ..what is that?..he told the available stuff and I picked parotta, chicken curry and egg chilly 65.
Though they were understaffed the waiters were pretty enthusisatic and were able to manage the 7 tables with ease.Their idea of having glasses around the appam counter is good but they shud have thought of having the counter clean,anyone who looks in will not order the appams. The kitchen too was not closed, the whole ambiance gave a feel of a chaya kadai which got converted into a restaurant.
The food was average,nothing to complain,the egg chilly was super good though...scramble egg with chillies and spiced up.The bill for these 3 items was Rs.100, am pretty sure if it was kumarakom I would have paid atleast twice the amount.
End point -the food here is cheap and so are the ambience and other factors we look for in a decent restaurant. I would say it is a good place for mallu bachelors living around velachery,wont leave a hole in their pockets.
