South Indian (Tamil) food catering for party

  • 5

Does any one know of a good catering service or cook in the south or east bay who makes Tamil vegetarian food.
Any leads or contacts appreciated.

  1. Are you looking for a full catering service, a cook to come to your house, or what?

    I'd give the guys at Mayuri (Santa Clara) a call. They have a lot of flexibility and do banquets, specialize in south indian, and most of the locals are Tamil.

    1. Madura is another obvious place to try as they are Tamil specialists. See the party menu at:

      1. I've attended Dosa parties catered by Udupi which were pretty good (better than rest.). Also, it's been a few a years, but a friend catered more traditional food from Panchavati in Sunnyvale which was very good (again, much better than rest.).

        Lastly, have come across Annadaata's, but never tried them.

        1. You can also try Saravana Bhavan in Sunnyvale.

          1. Suggest talking to the managers at
            a) Komala Vilas or Annadaata for authentic, home-style Tamil (veggie) food.
            b) the chettinad place in Milpitas if you want something spicier, more restaurant- than home-style.
            c) Madura in Sunnyvale is another option

            I'd avoid Saravanaa Bhavan (the business has a similar history as Pasand; why pamper them with your dollars)...
