had to do it.
proximity was nagging me.
the space is on the small side. a maximum of fifty seats, i'd guess. could easily be overwhelmed in no time at all.
the menu, for now, is a truncated version of that served at the other udupi palaces. they have a few appetizers, e.g. iddly, samosas, various dosas, and a south indian thali. no utthapam and no combo meals for the moment. i asked about the small menu and the proprietor mentioned they'd just opened and that they would soon have the full menu.
the thali was great and the staff was kind and eager.
highly recommended. and it is LITERALLY across the street from chaat cafe-- interesting and mildly amusing.
