“The food was abysmal”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

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.

“Hotel with Lazy Service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

We reached the hotel at about 3 PM after our visit from surili falls and was very tired indeed.When we asked for meals they said no meals are available.What we got is Chicken Biriyani we waitied for hours for the food and when it arrived we found that the quantity is large and the quality is poor.
Again the long waiti for each item we ordered simply made us very impatient.Last but not the least these people never care about the bill also simply you have to sit and look and enjoy the "beauty"of the hotel the bill will come when it has to.
If your program schedule is such that very tight do not take the risk of visiting this hotel and waste your precious time.

“The restaurant that you can try safely”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014 via mobile

I had visited thekkady with my family for 3 day trip ....searched for a good hotel though it's rating low we decided to go there because it's between kumily and thekkady .... ambience good .. it took 20-25 min to get ordered food .reasonably good ...tried dinner and breakfast .The highly rated restaurants were difficult to find out and some of them not functioning .

“Easy to get to good atmosphere, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014

Would recommend this restaurant for a good choice of Indian and non Indian options ( including fish and chips) if one needs a change from curries 3 times a day.
