Nice food

Nice food but lacked atmosphere. We were slightly off season so this might be the reason. We were a party of 6 so we enjoyed our own company but if you were just a couple it would have been a very quiet evening. Staff helpful.

Was informed that Ambadi had some good food to offer by my friends and I was not let down, The waiting time may be lengthy but the food was relishing and not too heavy on the pocket

Ate. Here twice both times a slowish service let the experience down. Drinks took about 15mins to arrive even in a quiet setting. However food is tasty. Good use of fresh ginger and garlic Set meal at lunch (non veg) is exceptional value and you won't leave hungry. Service is added at 10% to all meals. Being a foreigner food... More

This architecturally pleasing hotel has one of the good "value for money" restaurants in Thekkadi and merited three visits in four days. The ambiance is traditional Kerala and complements the food experience. We particularly enjoyed the Kerala thali which costs about Rs 150/160. The non vegetarian version, featured, besides the vegetable side dishes, fish and vegetable gravies as well as... More

Food OK service was slow for a group of 25. Offered a range of south indian dishes, some were mild for sensitive palates. Some interesting English 'pudding' on offer.

A meal at the Restaurant in the Ambadi Hotel in Thekkady is worth a try. They have a comprehensive menu of north and south indian dishes, and the food is good. The service is friendly and great ambience for both dinner or lunch. Very affordable prices.

We were taken here by our driver for our lunch stop on a recent tour of Kerala, and it was so good asked to come back the second day we were in the area. A sure sign it was going to be good even before we had eaten was the obvious number of returning, regular customers, both local and tourist.... More

We had a relatively small meal between two with drinks and it came to just over 800 rupees. Good service, nice building, the food was delicious. Recommended.
