Good south indian meals. Quick service and tasty.
60 Rs per meal. Unlimited.
Have to climb to 1st floor.
Excellent taste. A must visit for all who like tasty south indian meal. Only rice served here with the meal.
Unlimited subji, Sambhar, Garlic Rasam. They have kept containers with kadi and chass on each table.
We were 5 who went to have a meal here. Since we decided to have very light meal we requested them to keep only 2 plates of rice (very large plates) and told them to charge for 5 meals. But the staff here were kind enough to charge for only 2 meals in place of 5. Really genuine people managing the place here. Please visit this place for a sumptuous lunch / dinner.
Do not confuse this wit another joint nearby in the ground floor. A big and rude mustache toting guard may direct you to the other joint. But this place is in the 1st floor.

We had vegetarian thali meals..south Indian.
When they bring the thali, they bring huge amount of rice but very little vegetable curries( you can say just a tea spoon of each vegetable )
the reason given is they don't want any one to waste and this is monitored by the cashier on video.
there was butter milk in a jar on the table...by mistake we poured in a glass and drank it...hell broke..it is meant to be added with rice only and one should not drink... then we paid extra and got a glass of the same.
Every thing is very strict rules and regulations. Not at all customer friendly
the food is so so.

I tried out this restaurant after reading several positive reviews on TA. We had breakfast here while our stay in Thekkady. This restaurant is situated right at Thekkady Junction and is very hard to miss. The restaurant is situated on the first floor of the building. Decor wise it is a very very ordinary restaurant, but it is compensated by the taste of food.

They serve South Indian breakfast from 7:30 am to 10:30 am. We ordered uttapam, masala dosa and idli wada sambar. All the dishes were excellent. They provide you with unlimited sambar and chutney, and the best part is you don't even need to ask for extra, they themselves will refill your bowl.

There menu spread for lunch is good and would be worth a try. Unfortunately we didn't had time for lunch at this restaurant.The restaurant is very very cheap compared to others at Thekkady. The breakfast for two with above listed items and filter coffee came to Rs.106/- only. For lunch you can expect a cost of around Rs.300/- for two people.

Overall a very nice option for a meal.

this was a pure vegetarian restaurant as my mother dont eat at non-veg places. they have very good taste. nice variety. very quick service. the only thing i dint like is that the breakfast is only from 7:30am to 10:30am. after that you will not get south indian breakfast. do eat at this place if you are vegetarian.
