Totally agree with the previous post. WILL NOT GO AGAIN.
I have been there 3 times and even went on the day it opened. The service is very poor from day 1 and getting worse day by day. The food quantity is very less and there is no provision of extra sambhar or chutney. The quantity that comes with the dish is exactly 2 spoonful of sambhar and chutney which is just not sufficient and they charge $2.50 if we need extra of anything. This was not the case when it opened and also no other South Indian Place in GTA does it. Everywhere they have kept extra stuff for the customer to help themselves. WILL NOT RECOMMEND TO ANYONE. Sarvana Bhavan is a much much better choice in terms of food quality and taste.
I have been to this restaurant this past weekend. being south Indian, I ordered Idli ( steamed rice cakes - a south Indian breakfast item). The taste was excellent and was authentic south Indian taste. I ended up ordering one more plate of Idlis and a south indian coffee.
I asked for an additional cup of Sambhar and they gave me without any charge (so I am not sure why someone else commented they don't give extra sambhar.)
The restaurant interior is well designed.
My bill was $12.48 for two plates of Idlis and a South Indian coffee. I gave the waitress a 20 dollar bill and she asked me if I needed change!! (I never saw any place where someone would eat $12.50 dish and give a $7.50 tip!!) I politely asked her to give me back 5 dollars
Other than that incident, I would definitely recommend this place to someone who wants to taste South Indian cuisine
good food. service wasnt bad.
Been there several times and and found the place and food to be awesome.
Reasonable quality - but quantity is very limited for the relatively high price and service is quite poor. Essentially a rip-off.
If you are looking for an authentic South Tamil Nadu food, then this is the place. One of the very best resturant food I have ever had
Food taste good. You will get your money worth if you did buffet. Don't plan on doing take out, it is a total rip off..the quantity is too little for its cost. Imagine buying chicken briyani for $13 with only 2 pieces of chicken!!! Even paneer butter masala with 4-6 pieces of paneer! Outrageous..you definitely don't get your moneys worth. Karakudi should check out what Kamasutra offers for the same price..I would buy again if takeout quantity was more..plus on their talis they don't include chicken or north indian. Sucks!!
Nice place. The food was enjoyable and cost was also @ par.
Terrible! We ordered takeout from Karaikudi Chettinad for two people who don't each much and we were surprised to learn when we opened our order that apart from sauce, there was virtually nothing else in there. Our butter masala and butter chicken order was virtually empty. We called to express our concern and they replied by asking us if this was our first time ordering. Having not idea why that would make a difference, they also said tiny portion sizes was their norm. The food itself was just ok. Not worth $50 though!!! Ill go somewhere else next time.
