The food over here is very nice and it's got nice staff . It's really small but good and fresh food is served with a smile.

A small back street place that looks quite basic as you approach but the service is quick and friendly with a good variety to choice from and the food is really fresh and tasty. Ask for a special cup of tea if your are thirsty after a long day!

Our group consisting of 2 couples arrived in Thekkady at around lunchtime and after we settled our things at the hotel went out to find a place to eat. At one point in a narrow street a man was waiving to us and inviting us to go down to his restaurant, and we did. Mr Senraj, the owner of the... More

Great food in this unpretentious little cafe - excellent prawn curry. As another reviewer commented, it does seem to cater mainly to westerners, but good fun - ask for the special tea!

This was actually said by another guest - the café has no licence so beer is served in a teapot! You ask for 'special tea'. I think this is the novelty selling point for the place as practically all the clientele there when we visited (as recommended by our driver) were Westerners. Having said that the food was extremely good,... More

Our driver took us (a family of four) to this restaurant for dinner. It looks very anonymous but the food is excellent and the service is really good. The garlic naan bread is to die for - don't miss it! We went back for lunch the following day and tried out some more dishes, and we give them all our... More
