It’s a place for everyone, everyone. All those people who love South Indian cuisine, even remotely, will enjoy the food here. If you’re young or old, alone, with friends or family. This place is for all of us. The service is no-nonsense at all. The afternoons are really busy with the staff, and sometimes you have to wait. The restaurant, however, only serves Thalis in the afternoon, so the turnaround time for each table is very fast. In less than 5 minutes, the food was ready to be consumed at my table. The service at Meenakshi Bhavan is good.
Thali consisted of 3 puris that you could eat with a gram of potato preparation that was wonderful. Their system is very neat, while you’ve got the puris that bring the rice and the papad to the rice. They’ve got curries to go with rice, too. They’ve got the sambar, then the tomato curry and the dal.
Meenakshi Bhawan is one of the oldest and most popular places serving vegetarian dishes in Shimoga. The place is not very high in ambiance but has been serving great South Indian food for decades now.
