What Makes It Awesome?

Vanakkam cafe is located near NL College in Malad West. Chef Rahul Desai has created the menu of the cafe. They serve pure authentic south Indian dishes from all different cities like Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, Bangalore, etc. They serve 4 types of chutney i.e.coconut, peanut, pineapple, and tomato with every meal. My favourite is tomato chutney. Staff attire South Indian clothes, that gives you more of South Indian vibes. They have an outdoor sitting arrangement.
