Good quality food and at a reasonable price

A tie here twice. The service was good, the food very tasty, the portions a bit too big really but all in all a good place to eat.

The restaurant is nicely decorated. We were really looking forward to our meal after reading other reviews. However my lamb/mutton dish was inedible - pure fat! The rest of the meal was nice, so perhaps 2 stars is unfair but if you go avoid the lamb. When our meal came out we were almost choked on mosquito deterrent incense which... More

Me and my family recently stayed at the hotel and we are at the hotel morning and night. My mother in law is from Kerala and she cooks amazing food and I struggle to enjoy other people's cooking but Ambadi was definitely on par, there was a bit of a wait but it does say on the menu to expect...

Good food and right price. Better than our 4 star hotel. Lots of foreigners were also eating here even though they did not stay there.

This is by far the most loved restaurant in Thekkady, particularly for the ambience and quality of the food they serve. We had Kerala style Non Vegetarian Thali, Chinese and Fish Curry with Rice on three occasions which were simply delightful. Must visit restaurant when visiting Thekkady, Kerala.

We went here for lunch before checking into our hotel. We were disappointed that they ran out of Kerala Meals by 2 pm. We ordered mushroom fried rice, kerala fish curry and chicken curry which was just fine. The place was very crowded and we couldn't get the attention of their staff for a long time. Washrooms were in a... More

The first impression of the restaurant was very good. Ambience was good. But the restaurant was crowded and staff couldn't manage it well. The food took toooo long, and overall service wasn't great either. We got tired asking for plates. They missed a part of our order and it came after our food got over. But our non-vegetarians friends has... More
