The place was pleasant to sit and have food after tiring journey. Food was good. Apam and fish was nice. But the orders take a while to come.

I go here once every few months to get my system recharged with fantastic Mallu food. There are 2 lunch options - 1 the kings meal and the other one an abridged version of the same. Unless you have a voracious appetite, the mini meals will suffice. This is the place to go for fabulous aappam and stew, parathas, egg... More

The lunch which they serve is called King's meal in Malayalam and I think they do full justice to the description. Amazing food. We had vegetarian food and we could taste most of the Kerala specialities and the appams/parotta/biryani were excellent. Very good service also. A rich experience fit enough for a king.

If you enjoy Kerala food as much as I do and dont get the opportunity to visit Kerala often this is a great alternative. I have been to this restaurant multiple times and I come out having eaten more than my usual quantity. I typically stick to the appams and wheat parathas and I mix and match with either the... More
