Visited the Palmyrah restaurant two days in a row and it's a perfect spot for not vegitarians and meat-eaters. Staffmember Radhika is really nice, and please try the pineapple surprise if you like sweets. I think it was awsome.More

I went to the Palmayrah restaurant location on the basement floor of the Renuka hotel in June 2017. I have to say the food and service was superb. I would recommend their devilled / poriyal meat dishes. Will definitely be coming back.
