I ate here every day for 5 weeks straight - often twice a day - and was never once let down. Dosai, idli, puri, parotha: all cooked to perfection. The potato masala is to die for - just the right combination of oil and potato (around 50/50). Vemurugan is filled with character that only a small-town, simple value-for-money restaurant can offer. With high customer turnover the food is always hot and fresh, and the water tastes a little like the wood smoke that cooked the food. Hard to go past this outstanding establishment for taste, price and atmosphere. Five stars!
If anyone want to experience real tasty food in ooty then it is the only popular hotel which serves wide variety of dishes to the customers... i had an awesome experience from this hotel... every people in this hotel are very friendly, and they also serve some special dishes as customer's choice...
