Excellent value dining in Thekkady

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.

Stayed for a night on 30Mar 15. Had a very nice and comfortable stay in the nice cosy and very well maintained vintage themed rooms. Courteous and helpful staff booked tickets for Kathakali and also helped for boating tickets.

Their kerala meals were delicious. We ordered pasta as well and turned out to be very good as well. The fish could have been better.

The curry was very very spicy, and the size of the dishes was really too small. Food is good but portion too small for the price. Very good mango lassi. Would not go back.

The restaurant at Hotel Ambadi (located at 5 mins walk-able distance from Club Mahindra resort) serves decent food at a reasonable price, which can be your best bet here. I tried their Kerala Chicken, Kerala Parotha's, Fish and Chips, and Chicken Chilly. All items were good. Chicken sandwich was okay.
