This is nice half day outing spot near ponda. You can spend 2-3hr quality time there. Food was good we loved their chicken curry n sweet rice. Mr. Harsh (manager) is very caring and helpful.

The conducted tour around the spice garden is fun and educative. The entry ticket includes the cost of lunch. The tour guide made it interesting to the group while explaining about each spice. The lunch is bit unconventional, but was adequate. The welcome drink ( tea) was very refreshing. Surprisingly, they don't push much their spice products for sale, it's... More

Except for the food and organic spice they sell here, i do not find it intriguing to visit again. The entrance was lovely and we enjoyed the trip, but would not miss it.

The ticket is 400 rupees which is very reasonable price for the experience and includes a hot lunch buffett. The tour guide pooja took us around for about 40... More
