Overall Rating


We go to the Raleigh Hillsborough YMCA location of cheeni and have been now getting food about once a week for 2 months. Oh my goodness it is so flavorful and delicious. The owner is great to talk to and will point you to things to order. I feel like we've tried a lot of the menu but have stuck to several favorites. Some items are spicy but it is so good.

My absolute favorite is the Idli Sambhar, it is lentil/rice cakes in a delicious sauce. The second is the Veg Uthappam, I call it Indian pizzas and we've had for lunch and dinner. It is a traditional southern Indian breakfast lentil cake topped with veggies. Both of these items are vegetarian and gluten free. We have also had a spinach and paneer dish and the Dal and Rice dish (gluten free). We have loved everything we have tried and have become very regular customers for take out. Get a gluten free mango thumbprint cookie, really good.
