There are not too many places to have good food in Tekkady but this place has decent food with a good variety. Nothing extraordinary but still good! The hotel has a very intersting architecture.

We went to the restaurant during our trip to Thekkady this months beginning. All the local people recommended this restaurant. But we found the service time to be really long and even the food was not at all good.

We stayed at the Hotel Ambadi for 2 nights (separate review). Thankfully our accomodation was a completely different experience when compared to breakfast in the hotel restaurant...... No, it wasn't busy. It was practically empty. Yes, there were plenty of staff in evidence. Problem was, they weren't actually doing anything....such as attending to guests...... Morning one: 30min wait for bowl... More

We went here for dinner one evening as we were not able to have dinner at our home stay that night. They have a very extensive menu, however, they did not serve any alcoholic drinks. Service was a bit rushed. Our food was quite tasty, but the quality of the meat was poor, there was more fat than meat unfortunately.... More

recommended by some locals - this does not disappoint. We had a varied selection - Biriyanis veg and chicken, spring rolls, veg meal (thali) and fish and none disappointed. Fresh, honest tasting food with ample portions. Tasty masala chai and fruit juices. Good location and very clean bar the toilets. Busy at lunchtimes. Good enough for me to make note... More
