“Great food at Great location”
Reviewed December 7, 2013 via mobile

If you want to try best food in ooty definitely this is the best place. We stayed at Taj savoy and we want to try some best food outside of our hotel, our local driver suggested the same. Yes restaurant location was some difficult to locate but our driver wqs known to this location.
We were really impressed for this restaurant service, food everything. One more thing this restaurant hasn't bar licence therefore you should be prepared for that.

“Great taste of food..”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

I visited Earl's Secret in November 2013. The ambience is colonial,the food quality is very good.....don't miss the continental fare....its high on quality and taste alike!
We orderd for soups, salads (fresh diced vegetables), some minced meat lasagne, and fish and chips. The desert King's Cliff special brownie with white sauce is a must try.

You can choose to sit in one of the small, cosy dining halls, or in the outdoor glass restaurant, or in the garden area. The food being very popular, the restaurant is most often crowded. So, have patience while your food makes its way to the table.

The staff is courteous.....I highly recommend this place.

“Earls secret-Ooty”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

had been to earls secret for lunch,the location was good but not easy to find.Not many direction boards.We used google maps to get to this place.I guess they want to keep this a secret!!!!
We were seated outside,which was nice.The order taker was too busy as we had to call him to take our order,and after he took the soup and starters order he disappeared.Again after a while he came to take our main course order.
Their gardens were well maintained.Theres a problem with monkeys when you sit outside,and the waiters had to chase them off from time to time.
We ordered the italian food(pasta/lasagne etc) ,which was ok not that great of tastes,but ok.

“Pathetic treatment of guests”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

Though we were staying in Taj Savoy, hearing the great reviews, we went to king's Cliff to have dinner. The property was very good and as we entered, we decided to stay here the next time we visit ooty..But the best part of our trip ended here. We had specifically come here to eat at the glass house they had. As soon as we entered the glass restaurant, and went to sit at a table, the restaurant manager came and informed us that the table was already resereved..so we promptly shifted to another table they gave us. Finally, when we were ready to order and called the waiter, the restaurant manager very rudely came n told us to shift inside. When we told him that we specifically came here to eat at the glass house, he did not even bother and told us to go inside the hotel and find a table, else to come back some other time!!..apparently, they just got a reservation for a table of 8 and hence since we were just 2 of us, they wanted us to move. The way the restaurant manager spoke to us, we were terribly embarrassed, it was as though we were refugees and gone there to eat their charity food.They did not even bother to seat us properly and finally we just came off from there not having our food. These guys should first learn how to treat their guests!! Next time any of you want to visit this place, pls make sure that you are in a group of atleast 8, else you might not even be given a place to sit! They just care for big groups bcoz they would probably have a bigger bill. This is the worst treatment that we've ever got and will never ever visit this place again!!!
