This place is actually a house built in a traditional way which partly functions as a restaurant which is run by the family itself. They have an open kitchen and the food is just amazing. They largely serve all the traditional cuisines of Karnataka. The akki roti and cheese dosa is a must eat!! The entire vibe of the place is very warm and different. A must try if you are in Mysore.

After reading all the reviews and having heard so much about the restaurant, we a group of 12 visited the restaurant on Sunday, the day after Ugadi festival. The ambience of the restaurant set in a farmhouse was pleasant. The menu had many local delicacy options, prices were slightly on the higher side, but we haad great expectations and eagerly placed our order and waited for the food in the relaxing environment.

It was then that our problems started. There is just one word to describe the service and that is PATHETIC!!! Never seen such kind of schokingly poor service. We were made to wait for eons for our breakfast, which was served in bits and pieces. On a table where 6 were seated, only one plate was served and the others were made to wait endlessly.

The food was ok, but the portions small and the chutney served with the roti would have made a miser proud. It was just quarter spoon chutney served. There is no one use asking someone for chutney, because they don't deliver the main order itself, then how do you ask for sides?

The worst part was when we wanted to order something else in advance knowing that they were going to deliver late. The lady refused to take the order! I have never seen my life a restaurant where they refuse to take orders. This is absolutely terrible! Things ended up so pathetic, that we got fed up after a one and a half hour terrible experience and decided to leave. The lady then came with our order and handed it to someone else who were also hungry and gobbled it up.

Our woes were not over. We could not take our vehicle from the SMALL parking lot as someone had parked their car in our way. It took a herculean effort to leave the parking area and the management didn't bother to help us.

I don't know how others had a great experience, maybe it is their good luck that they got good service and our bad luck. Maybe it was wrong to go with so much expectations. Maybe it was the wrong day to visit. Anyway net result, an absolute pathetic experience. Just OK food, nothing great. The toilet door cannot be closed and the sink (arranged in a tyre) was clogged rounding up our sad day here.

It was a total disaster for us. We will never even think of returning to this place. If anyone plans to visit, best of luck with the service. If I could give negative rating for the service I woull do it, but I am forced to give 1.

We had need to this restaurant "Thotadamane" while on our way to Melukote from Somanathapura Temple. We spotted the board and stopped by to have lunch. It is a great place. Very hygienic and well maintained. They have outdoor open dining. Nice village house setup with a nice gazebo, swing, a fountain and also lots of trees. Food is really tasty. Sweet - Ash guard dhamroot was my favorite. Experience was very relaxing. Even the toilets are kept very clean and hygienic. If you are planning a visit to Melukote via Srirangapattana route, you must definitely stop by to have a meal here.

Thoda mane in Kannada means Farm House or House near the field in Kannada. My extended family (2Sr.Citizens, 4 Adults, 2 kids) and self visited this property during our trip to Mysore in December. We had chosen this property after reading the positive reviews in Tripadvisor.

We tried the following items from the Menu.

Chapati Thali-4@Rs.140, Kerala Parota Thali-2@Rs.130, Kerala Parota & Curry, Paneer mushroom fry and Fresh lime soda.

Strengths
1. Nice and clean property with a farm house ambience
2. Friendly and supportive staff mostly women
3. Tasty and hygienic food
4. Ample Car Parking

Area of improvement
Managing the guests especially during peak hours

Points to Note:-

2. They accept Cash & Card
3. Timings 7:45 A.M. - 5 P.M. Monday Holiday

Ambience 4/5
