Restaurant Review: Sri Krishna Cafe - Finally a sambhar which ain't sweet

I have been hearing a lot about Sri Krishna Cafe being the perfect destination for authentic Tamilnadu food and today I got the opportunity to check the place out. If aren't really looking for it, chances are you will miss this place. This place is right next to G K Vale and above Kairali and the narrow entrance is right beside Kairali. Check out the pic below.

The staircase were narrow enough that we had to wait to go up because a couple of people were coming down. The restaurant is on both I and II floor. They serve meals on both the floors however tiffin (Dosa etc) is available only on II floor. Our focus was on meals so we found an empty table on I floor and sat ourselves.

A few minutes later banana leaves were placed in front of us and the efficient meal-machinery went to work. Myriads of curries and kozhambus were served. I loved them except for the beans curry (dry with coconut) which tasted weird. However what took the cake was the wonderful drumstick sambhar and not an iota of jaggery/sugar in it, unlike other places in Bangalore. Finished it off with curd rice/pickle/fried-chilli combo and it was perfect.

The only gripe is that coffee isn't available after those wonderful meals and yes, the place could be a little cleaner but those are minor nits to an otherwise perfect place for Tamilnadu sapaad.
