From the street it looked packed but as we got upstairs you could see the only few tables were by the window! We ordered uncomplicated meals which took over an hour to arrive and food was average. They got our order wrong and the elderly woman was pretty rude. We were disappointed with our experience here

The small amount food we ordered took over an hour and was basic. The older lady at the counter then was rude. Wouldn't recommend it.

Seems that not so much Tourists find the way up to the stairs. This is a pitty, because it is very good food you find here and the athmosphere is absolutely familiar. Go there and find the real kerala kitchen.

Common guys.. we have keralities Christians and the coast.. bring on the fish.. Asking around I was guided to this place called Talk of the Town. A corner... More

Looking around for a moderate restaurant we noticed this small outlet. We decided to pop in to see what is in store for us. Its a family run business and the owner, an old lady welcomed us with a smile. There were not many guests inside but after the order was taken this lady went missing. After much hunting around...

Truly fabulous tasty food. Don't be put off with the bland decor because the food isn't. A family business where they all help to spoil the customer.

I am sorry to write a bad review because the family running this restaurant is nice and that is why I dont put only one dot on Tripadvisor review. Yes, the food is rather good but the service is very long... The main problem is if you go to the toilets before eating and also lift the curtain which separates... More

We visited for dinner one night and enjoyed our meal. We had two curries, one rice and two parottas which was enough for two people (Rs360 total). All the food was tasty! It had a homely feel to it and was clearly run by a family. This is a nice place for a quick bite.

Visited here several times in 2015 and revisited again in 2016 in our recent trip. Not much to look at from outside but food fantastic. They have simplified the titles of the dishes on the menu to make it easier for tourists to understand what the dishes are but underneath is true Keralan cuisine. The Keralan prawn curry was our...
