South Lagoon is the entirety of South Indian food in a nutshell. If that doesn’t explain the place well, we don’t know what would because in all honesty, that’s exactly what South Lagoon is. South Indian is an umbrella term really, and we don’t think it does enough justice to the many flavors that the food takes when you move a couple hundred kilometers in any direction in South India. Therefore, to say that South Lagoon serves South Indian food would be rather unfair, for the place has the most distinct tastes of Coorg, Malabar and Chettinad. This rooftop restaurant isn’t frugal with space—a trait it maintains with its food quantities too. The spices of South India are really something and this is your golden ticket to try them in all their authenticity. They have a knack to cook mutton and their Mamsam Vepudu should explain it well.
