“Good Kerala experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

We were looking for a place to dine for the authentic Kerala experience. Although air conditioning was under maintenance, the good behavior and arrangements done by the staff for the comfort won us first hand. Then came the well cooked homely Kerala food. We got a delightfull treat of Appam and Chicken stew. It was difficult to stop ordering Appam which were soft small and delicious. The stew was equally good. Overall it was a satiating experience.

“Trivandrum hotel”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

This is an old hotel in centre of Trivandrum. Parking can get difficult in the morning. There is a charm of old hotel . The food was okay . A lot to go on hygiene...many tables were not cleaned for minutes...staff behaviour can also improve.

“Nice place”

Good food. Authentic Travancore cuisine. Good ambience. Spacious and in a good location. One problem with the location is that it is difficult time find parking space till 6pm.

“Short staffed, unhygienic practices and unprofessional!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

We have eaten here before, the food's quite tasty. We went there for lunch on the 29th July 2013. The only table which could accommodate us all ( 4 adults, 2 children) lay unclean for around 15 minutes before a waiter came in a receptionist took away the plates and then after another wait the waiter came back with a dry cloth and swept away the food on the table on to the floor!!
When I made my way to the washroom I noticed the hassled receptionist who clearly had no clue on hygiene grabbing a plate from the corner rinsing it with water in the washroom ahead of me and then hurrying back to an adjacent table who must have requested for one!! I think food hygiene inspectors would take a dim view on that!
Finally when it came to ordering we were told that there were no chapattis only Thalia meals; which was understandable. But 15 minutes later on not receiving our food yet were told that actually they had run out of meals! At 1.30 pm! Were they ever going to tell us? I think they should have let us know at the very outset that we couldn't be served if that had been done we'd at least have gone elsewhere for a decent lunch.
