“Amazing food and cheap”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

Name of restaurant of a hotel in an old english bungalow tucked away in the hills of Ooty, but once you are there, it is as good as a treasure found. Very well prepared food, cordial staff, and damn easy on pockets.

“Best food experience”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

It is a little tough to locate this little heaven on top of the hills.. if you are driving, but nevertheless.. worth all effort! In this bungalow turned hotel with old English style charm you'd be lucky to find a room reservation, but you still have the restaurant access anytime. They serve good continental menu and with meticulously prepared meals. Its worth a stay, or a meal or two.
We had a french onion soup, cottage cheese with vegetables, Grilled chicken steak with spinach stuffings accompanied by veggies & fries, a chocolate pudding...our bill amount still didn't reach Rs.1000/- Being from bangalore..I was sooo willing to pay more!

“They need to upgrade in some sense. Need to make better use of the lovely heritage property.”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

Very Old and scratched cutlery, really small crockery (for pasta). Congested dining hall. Underutilised Fireplace. Huge ahuja speakers spoiling the decor in drawing room. Food is best in ooty, otherwise barely average. Don't have the soups though, they have the typical cheap soup taste. They have Bose speakers but they were not in use. The fireplace in the dining hall was off and we were shivering.

“Great Food!”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

The last place I expected quality Continental was in a South Indian Hill Station. I could not have been more wrong! Earls Court has great Chinese and Continental fare and the quality is comparable with must city joints. It's a tad expensive though. Service is good and warm.
