Make sure to try the massive paper dosa at Madras Mahal.
For a simple restaurant like Madras Mahal which has seen better days and been overshadowed by new comers like Tiffin Wallah (which offers better atmosphere at around the same price point), the best way to get customers walking into your doors and spending money is of course to offer deals – really, really good deals.
Through Restaurant.com, Madras Mahal offers a hard-to-resist deal for diners to purchase $25 gift certificates for just $10. The certificates are valid for dinner with a minimum purchase of $35, so it’s like getting 40% off your meal! Since Madras Mahal entrees average only about $9 and everything else is priced pretty reasonably, the $15 worth of additional free food that you get with your certificate allows you to eat a full meal and splurge while being on a budget. Additional details and purchasing info are available at Restaurant.com.
