we had a quiet lunch. It was too much to eat but good nevertheless. It was interesting to see old time pizza ovens in action. They also sell good home made choclates.

Being in the state of Tamil Nadu, one can expect delicious south Indian food in Ooty. But if you categorise your meal into veg/Non-Veg then Nahar is the place not to be missed. Good food with decent price. Service was not as expected though.

The food is average here, not so tasty; and it is slightly overpriced for the quality it offers. Wood-fire Pizzas are supposed to be its specialty, but the Pizzas are OK. Plus points are ambiance, location, and service.

Of course it is slightly pricy, but worth it, unlike other restaurants that just overcharge you and offer bad food. Plus, the service was nice, as was the menu.

Must've been one of the better restaurants in ooty at one time... When we went, it was partially closed for pest control ( on a Sunday evening ) and the next day they were again closed! The chocolates tasted very average...

We called the restaurant to check if we can walk in for dinner and they said we can. So we went ahead. But there was some sort of function and the whole restaurant was taken for some family function. False info provided and we just wasted our time travelling to this hotel. Staff are also rude.

This is one of its kind cafe in ooty. You get some great wood fired pizza , the menu is quite elaborate and I must say I have been visiting this place everytime I visit ooty. They have even some baked pasta options which is very good. It's a paradise for the Vegetarian's as it serves only vegetarian food. The... More
