Ten-Second Takeaway

Practically an institution in Noida’s Brahmaputra market, Lakshmi Coffee House serves up south Indian fare that is filling, tasty, and very easy on the pocket.

Vada You Doing

The first thing to note here is that it isn’t exactly located in the best area, and it isn’t exactly pristine. That being said, we feel like the food makes up for it all. Once you’ve chosen what you want to eat from the dog-eared, laminated menu, expect your food to arrive within minutes {five to seven minutes, if there’s not too much rush}.

We suggest you stay away from the buttermilk, but compensate by drinking the filter coffee. We highly recommend starting with the Upma {it converted us, who normally made faces at the very thought of eating it}, before moving on to either the Butter Masala Dosa, Onion Rava Masala Dosa, or Onion Tomato Uttapam.

If you’re going in groups, share a plate or two of the Vada Sambhar or Idli Sambhar; it’s filling and yummy, but honestly, we’ve had better. They also have thalis, Pongal, lemon rice, Chou Chou Bhaath and different specials every day—like Fried Idli or Chilli Paratha.

Papad Don’t Preach

There’s a cupboard near the cashier’s desk that houses various types of crunchy Murukku, papad and other south Indian snacks. Grab a couple of packets for an evening snack?

#LBBTip: There’s normally a long line during lunch and dinner hours {sometimes even breakfast}, so you may need to wait for a table, but the service is super-quick. They also home deliver in Noida, but within a specific radius.
