Located across from California Pizza Kitchen and Cheesecake Factory in the mall, the restaurant is strategically positioned such that mall goers can smell the aroma of delicious Indian food and spices wafting through its large open windows, causing them to check out the place out of curiosity. Unlike its other location in Newark, this restaurant is airy and spacious, with a modern vibe. There is plenty of outdoor seating, with a fireplace and string lights to add to the ambiance.

We went on a Sunday, midway between the breakfast and lunch rush. Service was quick, friendly and efficient. Menu was extensive, and consisted of all things South Indian, with emphasis on numerous types of dosas. Their latest offering is Matka dosa, where the dosa is served in a pot(matka). The filling is rich, creamy and well-spieced with paneer and veggies which can be scooped from the bottom of the matka with the crunchy, cone shaped dosa. It was not only flavorful, but the overall presentation was quite eye-catching.

Mini tiffin is yet another new item on their menu. Most restaurants offer idli/vada/pongal as part of their mini tiffin/combo. However, ID Company has taken it one step further to include mini dosa and sweet as part of their mini tiffin.

We also ordered the pav bhaji dosa. Severed in the style of Hydrabadi bandi dosa, it lacked the distinct pav bhaji taste in its filling.

The 4 types of chutneys and sambar which accompanied the dosas and mini tiffin were all fresh tasting and flavorful. We ended our visit with a cup of filter coffee and masala chai.
