Lonely Planet review

Tucked away in the Tamil enclave of King’s Circle, 80-year-old Ram Ashraya is beloved by southern families for its spectacular dosas, idli (round steamed rice cakes), upma (semolina cooked with onions, spices and coconut) and filter coffee. The menu, written on a chalkboard, changes daily. To get here, take the Central Line from CST; it’s just outside the Matunga station’s east exit.
