Even if it was the low season, the two owners could provide me a very good pasts meal with two pancakes for my next breakfast! Be aware that the location is in Kumily and not where it is currently indicated on TripAdvisor (24/07/2016). The place is a bit tricky to be found because it is not directly on the road.... More

Unfortunately I have not eaten in many restaurants in thekkady (only three). We have ordered here some Indian food, a baguette and pancake. The latter is really excellent! I was surprised to find this in thekkady. However the place (pretty and cosy but a bit shabby. It could become much better with little work) and the rest of the menu... More

This is a small cosy restaurant run by a talented, hardworking couple providing an excellent range of Indian or European food ranging from light lunch to more substantial dinner. Those longing for some European style bread will enjoy the home cooked French baguette. The setting is very attractive in a small garden off the road leading up to the nature... More

We had good indian homemade food here with Kerala rice. It is a nice airy cafe when it is hot at midday. The owners are very friendly.

Two of us went there for a lunchtime snack. The manageress was apologetic because she had run out of baguettes and was naot making any more until later. However, my colleague and I both had excellent snacks there.

A small family restaurant located in a decrepit tin shed, it can be a very rewarding experience when it comes to food. A wide selection of baked dishes with an authentic French flavour will satisfy the most exacting palate. Lots of monkeys around, and it is recommended to dine inside.

This tiny restaurant has been existing for over 10 years in Thekkady and deserves it. We hope Reji and Subha will be able to continue making their lives of it: they are very modest and nice people serving really nice and fresh food including pancakes and pizza. We had home made lassi, pancakes, pizza and vegetable masala and everything was... More
