Hari's Veg Restaurant @ Tirumangalam, Tamil Nadu, India
Heading back from Tiruchendur along the highway, just before Madurai city limits, quite close to the Madurai Airport is this highway restaurant known as Hari's Veg Restaurant.

Hari's Veg Restaurant
This is definitely a huge establishment. There is ample parking spaces at the restaurant. There are two restaurants side by side, both belonging to the same owners. One is a pure vegetarian restaurant and the other is a non vegetarian restaurant. Since we were vegetarians throughout this trip, we headed on to their vegetarian restaurant. The restaurant was very clean, air conditioned and the staffs were very professional and efficient.
They had a huge variety here, right from Tali Sets, Full Meals, Briyani Varieties, Mini Meals etc. A string of options to choose from. My mother went for their Tali Set like the one above. First, they served Tomato Soup for starters. The Soup was very good. Then they served two Capati's with one Paruppu Vadai. Then finally White Rice. The Set came with a good variety which included five different vegetables and five different curries. There was also a small plate filled with Plain Briyani rice. Definitely a very good variety. At the end, they served some sweets too. Excellent food.
The rest of us went for their Mushroom Briyani. Though the portion seems small, it is good for one heavy eater. This was served with Kurma and Onion Raita. After the one that we had in Marudamalai, this was the best Mushroom Briyani. The rice itself was so fragrant and the Kurma was delicious.
Us Having Lunch
If you are passing this way, then this would be an excellent restaurant to have your lunch. Excellent options to choose from, reasonably priced, super efficient services and the food is good too. Personally, I would highly recommend this place. Our bill for lunch came to INR 720 which includes another four coffees and they were worth every Rupee spent.
