Matunga, Mumbai, India Great space and almost always crowded. They have a lot of option to choose from and I guess their blackboard keeps changing. From rasam vada to uniappams to their filter kaapi everything is good. Stay away on weekends unless if you like crowds

Almost 12 inch Bajra and jawar rotis,stuffed parotha, papad wadi sabzi, gatta, lehsun chatni and more. The list is endless and they do good justice. Awesome food ,washed down with Chaas.
