Excellent place for food - especially if you are looking for Kerala style meals with fish curry. Basically a place for non - vegetarians. Go only for local cuisine and not for Chinese food they offer. Preferably go between 12.30 and 1.00 for lunch. For dinner, the restaurant is not very crowded.

Ambadi thekkady was out of my expectation. Worth the place. The time we enter the property its more of simplicitor but the moment you open up the doors it fascinates your inner. Thekkady is a place where we visit to enjoy wild life. Hence the periyar tiger reserve & elephant junction is near to the hotel. This hotel has got... More

It was one of my worst experience in a hotel. The owner, a young lady hate kids.. she was asking us to keep our kids calm without speaking... She is going to spoil the legacy iPod ambadi created by her father. Good save this hotel. Also food was terribly cooked. They don't even know to make a Naan
