Good food but very hot and crowded in May. Although we had a booking we had to wait for some time. The restauraunt was very crowded and hot because of lack of ventilation. The food was very good and as a regular haunt during our school days, this is always a must visit restauraunt during out class get togethers.

The waiters seemed not to want any business. It was almost as though they were on strike.

The quality of food too seemed to deteriorated. We have been eating here over the past 4 decades. It has been our favourite place and I felt very sad to see its downhill slide.

The food here is great, there is just no arguing about that, the service is good but needs a lot of improvement.
i visited this place twice and on the second occasion was made to wait for 45 mins, not just me but a whole lot of others, there is absolutely no sense of first come first serve, you can just keep loitering in and out of the place and grab a seat if you find one first.
they need to have this looked into and have a token system in place.

but hey, the food makes up for it :-).

The multiple rooms on both sides Hotel you see here and at madikere Coorg is a new experience.But the food seems to be Nepali chinese.Only few old waiters have the charm.Location is good and if you are a foodie go for it after you have gone to star places in OOTY for meals.

If you want good chinese food, then head to this place. Another good thing about this place is that you also get Beef and pork along with chicken & fish dishes. Slightly on the expensive side. Its an old place with service staff that have been working for many years. Service is not great. But in the end the food compensates for everything.
