I am starting with one of the hotels that is just a Hop away, and invariably this is the place I have visited the most number of times: Amruth Veg
Firstly, the hotel is a landmark sort of a thing on St.Marks Road. Secondly, it is frequented by most office goers, including UB City. I have had many a times, breakfast or lunch or sometimes both from here. There is a separate area for Service, and also the hotel has an option of Self Service – if you really want to have a quick bite, the service is commendable. Serviced area, on the other hand, is air-conditioned and for a limited crowd of 50 people.
Breakfast is a routine affair; it has all the regular South Indian items present. You may try the Masala dosa and the Rava Dosa – they have maintained the quality of the food over the years. Idlies are soft and the vada is also good. Check if t is made fresh before ordering though.
Lunch items are limited, but it has some basic choices- Rotis are comparatively big. Subzis again are kept to the basic – Paneer Butter Masala, Dal Fry, Aloo Fry etc. They also serve Jeera rice and Veg Fried rice only during lunch hours, but I’d prefer to stay away from them. There are very few starters (excepting of course the very Indian Masala Papad), you can order for any dry item to be your starter! We had once ordered Paneer Gucchi, which was as bland as the roti itself. Other side dishes are not worthy of mentioning.
Verdict : Try this place if you are in a hurry, and not really bothered about relishing food.
Atmosphere / Ambience: Warm, Cozy
Food - Quality & Hygiene: Food is tasty, if you know what you are ordering for. Quality is ok, hygiene factor is also ok.
Economy: Easy on the pocket, and then, they accept Coupons :)
Must haves: Masala Dosa, Amruth Special Veg Curry, and Rose Milkshake.
