Beware, quality and taste too bad Went to this restaurant to get our lunch packed, as it was in vicinity of our stay. Must say, it was a worse decision. I asked for Beef onion and Masala fish. I repeatedly mentioned that I need to travel and the preparations better be dry. To my astonishment the beef onion was a... More

Though the food quality is good, the location and service are pretty much the ordinary. Its like any other regular joint.

This place is situated set back from the road serving a mix of Keralan and Eastern foods. Service was quick and the food ok. The ramshackle hut it was situated in was not that attractive though, hence the average rating.

Don't be fooled by the humble exterior of this great little eatery! Set back off the street, it's easy to miss. The food is delicious and the service prompt and friendly. My husband had fish curry which he enjoyed and I had the paneer in spicy tomato sauce. It was suggested to us by our driver and it was a... More

Unassuming and basic building with excellent food and service. They have a tandoori oven and served fish, prawns and chicken. A good menu and very friendly staff.

The food was just amazingly good. Probably the best meal in kerala. They may not have the ambience but they make it up with the tasty food and smiling staff. We ordered garlic prawns, fish with vegetables and chicken fried rice. All three were very very good. Definitely recommend it, would love to go back there.

A bit hidden away near the centre of town. Ate lunch here twice on the recommendation of our Indian driver. Tasty food was quickly provided at reasonable prices. They have a tandori for such menu items.

Indifferent service and the food isn't up to much. My garlic naan and my banana pancake were both undercooked. The premises is pretty rundown too. Seems like there are a lot of better options in this town.

We were taken to this place by our driver and, from the outside, wondered where he was taking us as it looks like a run down shack. It is simplistically delightful. However, as you enter there is a clay oven in which the day's tandoori meals are being prepared. The beautiful odours from this set the scene. The menu is... More
