Malabari, Mangalorean & More: Enjoy Epic South Indian Food At These City Spots
Modelled as a home-style South Indian Kitchen, the dosas at Carnatic are lovely. Start your meal with their buttermilk, and as for dosas, skip the staple masala and ask for the Malleshwaram 18th Cross or the Rava Coconut. Also, try their traditional South Indian filter coffee.
Carnatic Cafe's GurgaCarnatic Caféon, GK-2, and Meherchand outlets are open for both dine-in and delivery.
Order the Rava Kesari, 14 Mini Idlis in Ghee & Sambhar, Panchavarna Utthappam, and the Onion Rava Masala Dosa and you'll be in heaven. The thalis are great for when you’re really hungry.
All of Saravana Bhavan's outlets are open for dine-in and takeaway, while you can order online from their Janpath branch through Zomato and from their GK-2 branch through Swiggy.
A Keralite foodie destination, the restaurant came to life because its founders craved home-style, traditional Keralite fare. The menu features food influenced by the Syrian Christians, traditional Nairs, the Malabar region’s Moplah coastal cuisine, and authentic food from the toddy shops of Kerala. They also have a special 'Home Made Better' menu where you can get single-serve portions like porotta w/tomato fry and chicken curry w/rice at INR 199 and INR 249, respectively (exclusive of taxes).

Chidambaram's New Madras Hotel
Contrary to its name, you’ll also find Indian Chinese options here, but we suggest sticking with their South Indian menu. We recommend sampling their uttapams (especially the paneer and Nilgiri) and a side of fried idlis.

You cannot go wrong while choosing from the dosas, idlis and vadas here. If you’re looking for a switch up, definitely get the curd rice and lemon rice. We love all the little boxes of chutneys that come along with every delivery.
