This was a great find. The proprietors Reji and Subha Kumar go out of there way to make you welcome and they have a menu to cater for all tastes. This is quite simply family cooking at it's best. So good I didn't eat anywhere else !! Subha will also on request teach the fine art of Keralan cookery skills.... More

The 'French' Restaurant isn't all that French. Once you get over that mental hurdle you get a chance to taste some excellent Indian Food. The pizzas looked good as well but why on earth would you eat Western Food in India. Aloo Palak and Aloo Gobi were excellent here as was the veg curry. Food takes about 30-40 minutes as... More

The food was alright, nothing fancy. Most items on menu tastes bland for a Indian palate. Being a family run restaurant , they need more experience on how to behave with customers.

Tucked away behind some larger buildings, this is a very cozy family owned restaurant. The food was really good and it did't cost a penny. They even went to get some groceries for our meals, showing the level of effort they put in and the freshness of your meal.

Don't let the looks of this place fool you, this is where you want to eat. This great little run by a couple and this mischief filled son is the real deal and not to be missed. EVERYTHING is completely fresh, they cut the vegetables after you order; the baguettes are fresh and homemade everyday. We went for dinner around... More

We stayed 3 Nights in Thekkady and had breakfast at this location every time. They have a good choice and all we tried was very tasty. Can highly recommend the Omelette with cheese and all kind of pancakes. Very friendly owner family.

We came here on evening for dinner and we enjoyed the food so much that we came back the next day for brunch. Whether it was the pasta, boiled veggies or banana porridge, everything was good. And they have the yummiest banana nutella crepe/flat pancake! Definitely give it a try on your trip to thekkady if you want good food... More
