All Hype No Stuff!
I was taken aback having eaten here after years! Seeing the popularity of it on burrp! and even otherwise everyone wantin to try it out more than HSB now wen they come to chennai! I mean HSB deserves the name this place sure doesnt!
At 8 30 in the morning, the Vadas were not hot and fresh, seemed from yday. Big and bulky, not crisp at all. And 15 bucks for it is day-light robbery just for the brand name! The Idlis were half-cooked, it was jus batter in fact! Seirously disappointed to the core with IDLI on their name, that the first thing they shud learn to make! The Pongal was ok, nothin great. Coffee for 16.50 was jus 3 sips and was fulla sugar!
Overall horrible experience, the guy at the bill-counter wasnt very friendly and it took them 20 mins to parcel the already made and displayed dishes. Worst is the bill was around 125 bucks for just this, which i wouldnt have mind paying in ID where the vada and pongal are awesome!
Ambiance – 3/5
Food – 2/5
Service – 3/5
Price – Close to 150 bucks for a couple
Will i go back again? – Phew! Never!
