This place is one of my favorites especially after the last meal I had. Was it down as well with a fine cold one. The service is fast, clean, friendly and mainly very cheap.

Hadn't been back here for many years but it still was great. Great choice of south Indian dishes and the added bonus of being able to have a beer with your food. Service was excellent and unobtrusive. Well worth a visit.

We were two couples and with advice from our waiter we ordered a wide variety of veg, chicken, mutton and shrimps were all well presented and shared by us all. Naan bread was still piping hot and great. Wide variety of drinks to choose from. Then at the end it did not break the bank. We will be visiting again

We had lunch with our Ireland partners 2 days back. Entire experience was so pleasing. Right from service to quality and taste of the food was so good. Shaji impressed with his pleasing demeanor. His help in selecting the food was very nice. Even our Irish friends liked the Indian food

Woodlands in an old and popular restaurant that offers South Indian fare especially Kerala food. The appams, porotta and fish mappas were delicious. A separate room for groups offers great privacy. Service is friendly and quick.

Woodlands located in Ruwi is a good South Indian Restaurant serving Kerala Food . Good for both Veg and Non-Food. They also have liquor to serve. Ideal place to have Business lunches and Dinner. Good Ambience . But all this comes at a Premium Price as it's a Fine Dine Restaurant.

The food at this curry house was to die for!! Our favourite was definitely the malai kofta - lovely sauce and the dumplings were just great. The only downside was that the outside didn't look like a restaurant. When we arrived we were very confused as to wether we got the correct address because everything was boarded up. Asides from...
