First thing first! The Starters - complimentary Banana chips and one covered in Jaggery - Sarkarapuratty. Good start. Their Thali - Set meals is a Value for mobey and you get to test all varieties too. Small portions f different things makes you filled too. Rs.400 for one person was nice. Fish varities were good, Live Appam counter serves you... More

The food served was not hot and the server could not explain the dishes to us. Starters could be served prior to serving the main course and not along with the thali. the people serving should ask for a second helping unless it is a fixed thali.

Worst food ever.Not worth even 1/10th of the price that is being charged,which is about Rs.900/- per person. One can have a fabulous buffet with a wide spread of veg and non-vegetarian,fruits,pastries and desserts in chennai at a 5 star hotel at the same price. My recommendation is never ever step into this hotel.

A range of dishes and flavors, and a nice break from local food. They're not afraid of spice. Plenty of veg options.

For all authentic food lovers this is the place to eat. Typical kerala food nicely prepared and served. Staff is courteous. basically home converted into a restaurant. Pre booking on weekends would help or else its a wait of 15-20 mins. Apart from typical thali also order the fish fry ... its good. It has vallet parking too.
