Most of the restaurants in Madurai cater for a South Indian vegetarian menu.

Located in the religious Hindu city of Madurai, most of the restaurants in Madurai cater for a South Indian vegetarian menu. Nevertheless, it is also possible to find some non-vegetarian restaurants as well as Western fast food chains such as KFC located in the city centre.

If you’re looking for restaurants in Madurai, most of them are located along West Perumal Maistry Street and also near the railway station, west of the city centre.

Along West Perumal Maistry Street most of the rooftop restaurants belonging to a string of hotels offer breezy night-time dining and temple views (don’t forget the mosquito repellent); most also have AC restaurants open for breakfast and lunch. Surya Restaurant, the rooftop restaurant of Hotel Supreme offers a superb view over the city with a nice vegetarian multi-cuisine menu and some great cold coffees.

Street stalls selling sweets, dosas, idli and other South Indian dishes are ubiquitous, especially near the train station. If you’re having a serious craving for Western foods, head to Shoppers Stop, a well-stocked grocery store on Town Hall Road. For bakeries, head to British Bakery on West Velli Street for fries, sandwiches, fried rice and Indian snacks, or try Jayaram Fast Foods for their bakery downstairs or their restaurant upstairs that does burgers and pizzas in addition to the traditional Indian fare. If you fancy some non-vegetarian cuisine, head to Dhivyar Mahal Restaurant on Town Hall Road for Indian curries including roast leg of lamb.

If you’re keen to try something different head to Ko Kho Restaurant on Town Hall Road for a different take on Tamil cuisine. The restaurant has a different and unique cooking method that provides dishes that are healthy, nutritious yet very delicious. Not only do they serve vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes, the prices are very affordable too.
