Not typical Kerala cuisine as expected, it was more Tamil Non Veg preparation. They have a large veriety of non veg specialities which is tasty, less oily and of great taste. It's slightly expensive but still worth the try.

Another busy neighbourhood that is a center of trade
and commercial related sctivities is the famous and
popular Royapettah. Apart from being known for its
many tourist attractions, Royapettah is a favourite
shopping and entertainment check in for all budget
travelers. Popular for shops selling home fabrics,
traditional sweets, furniture and house décor, it can
be quite a delight for all those looking at packing in
