Let me preface my review by stating that we went to this Hotel to have the "Sadya lunch" and not for stay. Onam is a big festival in Kerala and the Onam sadya is a gastronomic treat which is generally served during lunch during the Onam days. The sadya is generally served in a plantain leaf and the number of items served varies from 20 to around 45. It is a pure vegetarian delight and the way the items are presented in the leaf is an art.
The sadya we attended had 45 items which included three types of "Payasams"- paaladai, pazham(fruit) and paruppu(lentils). The pazhapaayasam was excellent whereas the other two were just moderate. The overall quality of the sadya was excellent and the service was very courteous. The boat race music was played in the background and created the mood of celebrations .
The whole sadya was set up in their conference hall and around 200 plantain leaves were laid to cater to the clients. It was a wonderful experience of a wonderful festival. The sadya costs Rs.410 per head inclusive of taxes.
