Safe food

Let me come straight to the point... though this restaurant does not look great, food is absolutely safe and tasty. This is a 100% veg restaurant. This restaurant is run by the Aaryas chain having restaurants in southern Tamil Nadu and expanding into various cities in Kerala. This place used to... read more

After my first choice restaurant was closed, my rickshaw driver recommended Hot Kitchen. It's easy to find with the entrance in the middle of the main street, and the restaurant just a bit back off the road. You know the place is good when you're the only tourist there. My server was really nice! Although after confirming no ice twice... More

A very indian vegetarian cafe/restaurant off one of the main streets in Alleppey. Very basic but enjoyed the food we had. Try the dosa cone shaped thing, a unique dish! Staff a little slow and uninterested but for the type of meal and place it wasn't too much of a problem.

I found the Dosa here,fresh,tasty and delicious and very good value,the place has a simple canteen style,the emphasis is on the quality and freshness of the food. Frequented mainly by local people who know a good thing and no doubt return again and again as I would if I was here longer.

The most amazing dosas, we went here 3 nights in a row and a breakfast! Honestly I think its one of the best meals I've ever had... 4 times over! Its a very basic restaurant so don't expect anything fancy. But a lot of locals seemed to eat here, especially after they had been to temple, and the dosas were... More

No menus, greetings or acknowledgment. It was not crowded and later arrivals had been served. All staff knew we were there and after another five minutes we... More

This restaurant was 100% for local people serving excellent, fresh dishes, good quantities and very delicious. We loved it, but you need to like spices. Prices were very cheap for us tourists. Great fun. No English spoken.
