“The best in the hills”
Reviewed January 18, 2012

excellent food, homely atmosphere. willing to make changes according to your tastes. The serve western, North Indian, South Indian and Chinese and unlike many restaurants who serve many cuisines each of them was good. They bake their own bread, cookies and cakes which are a bonus.

“Is ok if you stay in the hotel, but no if you have to come just for eating”
Reviewed December 12, 2011

This place is really expensive and if your a guest of the hotel you don't have the choice but to eat here. The food continetal is not so good at all, especially the pasta: really overcooked. The indian food is ok. The only nice thing is the british atmosphere with fireplace and wood. Also there is music in the lobby but beside that I would not raccomend to reach this place (quite far from ooty). Also they have some fake thing in the menu!!! You read "steak", you order it and you find out that what they call steak is actually an Hamburger!!! they do not serve alchol (not even a beer) but we saw some customer drinking vodka and whisky while eating!!! Bleah!

“Great food, but missing cutlery! Yet, loved their food.”
Reviewed November 28, 2011

Try their prawn and chicken dishes, however, reconfirm the order a few times. The waiters struggle with english. But with the yummy food, you will soon forget all that. Dont forget to get some coffee in the outside glass house and enjoy the veiw!
