Post reading the reviews I went here. Honestly, it is just a small roadside restaurant. The food here is 7/10. Firang tour groups are stationed here for dinner. Service is quick. Price is decent. If there is nothing in Thekkady then go here.

Just down the road from Mahindras, it was more on the lines of a 'Goa shack'. The owner was very helpful, but their dishes seem limited by the same masala, gray, spices. We had prawn & squid,, when we asked for both to be made in different ways..our mistake,!! It seems to cater more for the few foreigners who might... More

Tempted again by reviews on TripAdvisor we went to get a bite in Bamboo Cafe. Despite the opinions, the food there was just okay - nothing special, but nothing disgusting. Me, being spicy food lover, well... I was a bit disappointed, it was spicy just okay. Again. French fries my girl ordered were quite good, though, freshly made on the... More

All freshly cooked to order with a good choice. They are used to travellers so tone down the spices , which was very welcome. Chicken tikka was amazing as were the nan bread

Don't let the external environment put you off. This place was recommended by our homestay manager and we are glad we went in. Food was of a high quality and the service was as good.

Been there last month while on a family trip to thekkady. The restaurant is located a few meters away from the main road. It has got a small parking space too. A small restaurant constructed out of bamboo but it is maintained well. Won't burn the pocket much as well.
