Good kerala restaurant

This is a good old hotel with a restaurant where you can have kerala meals with family. Fish fry is good and they give other veg and non-veg dishes.

The first evening we ate there the meal was excellent, the second night not so good, but it was a public holiday and very busy so maybe we were just unlucky

We ate here three times during our stay in Thekkady. It was a short walk from our accommodation, very clean and the food was excellent.. We can recommend the chicken sizzler.

Ambadi resort in Thekkady is one of the oldest and still one of the best. I visited their restaurant during my visit to Thekkady and found it very nicely done. Food is also reasonably good at Ambadi.

Ambadi is an old hotel, very near to Club Mahindara. Food is good, but you get a feeling this is an old hotel. Maintenance is so so. Have food but do not stay.
