“Best restaurant in Ooty”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

Amazing ambience, great service, nice atmosphere, a tad expensive but an out and out English experience.

Dined out at Earls Secret and it is definitely on my repeat list when I return to Ooty.

“great breakfast in a quaint , warm english setting”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

If you are in Ooty, i suggest you don't miss a visit to King's Cliff Hotel for a relaxed breakfast at the Earl's Secret Restaurant... exactly what we did. Great setting in a 140 year old bungalow a scottish famility has supposedly lived in ... great breakfast in the 'glass house' ... the service could be a wee bit better but wasnt limiting. People were very warm and polite and the food was great .. The experience of the whole visit with family certainly was calming and well worth it. Would sure love to stay at Kings Ciff the next time around....

“Lovely location and super food!”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

I often visit Earl's Secret and have not had a bad meal yet. It is lovely to sit outside in the garden or in the greenhouse area and enjoy the surroundings. The food is reasonable and tasty and it is a peaceful place to relax with a friend. The steak is good and the choice of Indian dishes is excellent.
