“Good South Indian vegetarian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Arya Nivas is located at Aristo Junction, very close ( right in front ) to Trivandrum Central Railway Station. Though it is a hotel with lodging, it's more popular among the local people for it's vegetarian restaurant. There are two restaurants in Arya Nivas; one at the ground floor and an AC restaurant at the first floor. The ambience in the AC restaurant is wonderful. The vegetarian south Indian food served is good, but it's not the same with north Indian and Chinese food that they have included in the menu. Food is comparatively costly too.
There is no toilet within the washroom and you'll have to use the ones at the second floor. Parking space is limited only for few cars and it is usually always full.
