South Indian (re: vegetarian) eating, and the paper dosas here are a fun novelty if you've never tried one before. They involve a teensy bit of filling scooped inside a huge, trumpet-like crepe, then served with a variety of spicy-to-creamy sauces.

This fills the niche for Indian vegetarian cuisine. – In Short
The simple decor, held over from a former Mexican restaurant, won't win any prizes. But the friendly and attentive waitstaff, excellent presentation of dishes and soothing smell of burning incense all go a long way toward making this a pleasant dining experience. South Indian specialties like onion masala dosai will pique your curiosity. Curries include avial, with potatoes, carrots and green bananas stewed in a tangy coconut-yogurt curry.

Tasty vegetarian! – A great buffet is fast and well-priced for a weekday lunch. A dosa (amazing flatbread stuffed with potato-based filling) is included with the meal - order regular or spicy versions from your waiter. Even avid meat-eaters enjoy this veggie restaurant. All your favorites, like saag paneer, eggplant, and lentil dishes are on the buffet, plus some delicious things you may not have tried before. Fruit salad is always lovely for dessert.

Delicious! – We went with a group of six people, only one of whom was a vegetarian. I was extremely skeptical but the food was amazing! The waitstaff was very patient and friendly, and even though they don't serve alcohol in the restaraunt, they let us bring in a bottle of wine to drink with dinner. I would definitely eat there again, but not without someone who knows their way around the menu.

Eat well and ignore those candle lights – First the Bad: No place for fine dining and the waiters may not understand what you want

Good: Good south Indian vegetarian food in Austin. The dosas are good (a bit too oily), the accompanying Sambar (lentil soup) is average. the chutney are OK. Nice and fluffy idlies. Trying north Indian dishes here is asking for trouble.

A MUST visit – I LOVE Madras. The food is great and the crepes are light and filling. The service is excellent and we never have to wait to be seated. The lunch buffet is always pleasing. We've been there more times than we can remember. I've taken so many of my friends there for the first time for Indian food and all of them love it now.

New Experience – It was my first time eating this kind of Indian food. I got Madras pavilion special (I think that was the name of the dish), and I had a quite interesting dining experience. Overall, flavor was good but I kinda got tired of taste toward the end. I wish it had little more variety. It might take me a while to get used to those flavors and style, but I'll definitely come back to try out different dishes.

Please ignore the rest ... – There are reviews that give this restaurant a 3, whereas the food they talk about is not offered at this restaurant. They are mistaking this for some other place.

I can assure you that this place deserves a uninhibited 10 overall !

A Favorite! A+++ – Definitely the place for vegetarians who love spicy food that's not boring. For the price, it's the best deal in Austin bar none when you go during the buffet. There is no atmosphere but it's the food that's most important right? If you want atmosphere and good Indian food then go to the Clay Pit but you'll pay a lot more for the same food.
