Madras Diaries recently opened in Bandra and offers some traditional South Indian delicacies and also some interesting specials.
Chilled out vibe and good food is how I describe my experience at Madras Diaries. Check out this video from my visit there.

Here’s what I ate at Madras Diaries
Jalapeno Cheese Idlis
Fried mini idlis with bits of jalapeno. These were served with a cheesy dip. The idlis were fried to perfection – perfectly crunchy and the jalapeno bits did add a little edgy flavor.
Paniyarams tossed with onion, chillies and molga podi. So this was extremely spicy because there was tonnes of molga podi. But it was quite delicious.
Made with 9 different grains, these idlis honestly felt almost as soft as regular idlis. And they had a little tadka in the centre – curry leaves, mustard seeds, cumin seeds. This tasted quite amazing with the sambhar.
Served with pickle and rice papad, this is one of the tastiest Puliyogare I’ve tried. Such a pronounced tamarind flavor. Absolutely must order this.
Mysore Masala Dosa
A huge, crispy dosa stuffed with potato and a spicy garlic chutney.
A spiced chaas – has a nice flavor from the mint and pepper in it.
Spiced Lemon with Basil Seed
A lemonade spiced with chillies – literally! This one is way too spicy.
This one didn’t really please me.
I quite enjoyed my visit to Madras Diaries. You can definitely visit for a non-udipi South Indian experience. Their food is pretty good. There were somethings which were a tad bit spicy for me, but overall I was quite happy with what I ate. One of the other things that looked interesting on their menu was the thali. I’ll definitely be trying that next time.
I hope this review was helpful. Stay tuned for more.
