Top pick: Even before we eat — as we’re cracking open some BYOB drinks — we’re charmed by whip-smart, frequently sarcastic menu descriptions like “Curd rice: yogurt and rice, with fried spices mixed in … (it sounds weird, but tastes awesome).” (Correct.)
The downside: This might be a strange complaint, but the dining room itself is uninspiring. We’d be more likely to bring guests if the floor, seats, tables, walls and ceiling weren’t all slightly different shades of brown.
Fun fact: Just about everything here is served on a banana leaf, but that’s especially so during weekend lunches, when diners eat with their fingers off the leaves and then signal to waiters to have their helpings replenished with seconds.
