SW corner of Christie Pits.

Anyone been there recently? Favourite dishes? Anything to avoid?

Thanks.

      definitely the dosas. i'm partial to the mysore masala dosa.

      also love the daha vada appetizer. lentil doughnuts covered in yogurt and tamarind.

      i take people there all the time.

        My girlfriend doesn't like their sambhar - they put some inauthentic ingredient-garlic or ginger in it apparently. I had their lamb xacutti last time.Pretty good.

          just checked:she takes issue with the coconut chutney being garlicky.

          : Thanks for the tips. We had a delicious meal: Chicken Xacutti, spinach and chickpeas and the dahi vada to start (which was a big hit - thanks missnomer).

          Has anyone tried their lunchtime thali?

            Been there several times, everything I tried was a hit, especially the dosas.
