“spicy fresh & delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

I have been to molly's in 2009 & I enjoyed the friendly atmosphere & the flair of the chefs!! They do an amazing marsala fish curry that takes time as it is prepared fresh as is all the food! oh, I felt revitalised after eating the fresh spices! It truly is the healthiest cuisine in asia because of the ingredients & nothing artificial is added! It's a really memorable experience!

“fine restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

We decided to have dinner here when we were going to our KTDC resort and it was a satisfying evening. The food is good, beautifully cooked and has a slight touch of different preparation mix. We tried 4 different items and all were absolutely delicious. The candle lit table always sets the mood (if you are travelling with your partner). Its a perfect value for money restaurant.

“Friendly staff and good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

The title says it all!
We met several Brits in there, and British food is available, but we ate good vegetarian Indian food. Everything was freshly cooked and was some of the best food we've eaten in India.

“Fine wee restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

We ate at Molly's on three occasions while we were in Kerala. The service was attentive but not overly so, the staff were realy friendly. Once you enter Molly's its hard to belive you are on the main street. Best tables in my opinion are by the pool. It has a good menu, indian, mexican and some international stalwarts. The make fine chips, after a week of curry sometimes its the simple things!

It also does some nice snacks for lunch.

Prices were not high probably average 200 - 300 for most mains 120 - 200 for drinks.

all in all I would eat here again the next time I am in town.

“Nice hotel restaurant.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

Excellent service, decent food, good drinks selection, beautifully lit setting by the pool.

I had the special local Kerala chicken curry which was tasty, although the bone to meat ratio was too high for me to say it was really great.

Thanks for a pleasant Christmas eve dinner!
