“Decent food, extremely nice staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2014

We only discovered this restaurant on the last day of our stay in Fort Cochin, otherwise we would definitely have come more often. The location is really good with a nice view from the first floor down to the bustling street. In the evening the temperature was nice - noo AC but good old vents. Prices were ok as well.

“Tasty, cheap, and nice atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014 via mobile

We had amazing kerela rolls (roti wrapped round fried veg), seafood sizzler and salad. The restaurant had a nice atmosphere and the staff were very friendly. Would highly recommend it. The only negative was food took about 30mins to arrive.

“Good food and friendly service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

Just what you'd expect when going to any of the other restaurants in Fort Kochi. Food prices are very good compared to the other places nearby. When we arrived they didn't have some of the dishes on the menu, but that seems to be common with the other places we've been to because of low season... The waiter serving us was very friendly and helpful, we will come back because of him. Bonus points - Wifi worked fine.

“Great food, great atmosphere, great setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

we have eaten here a couple of times and on both occasions the food has been delicious.

you have to look up to find it as the doorway is squashed between 2 shops but the runway lights show you the way.

It is well worth seeking out however as it has a lovely chilled out atmosphere, great chilled out music, and fabulous food at good value for money prices

the staff are friendly and very helpful too

fo sure we will be back before we leave Cochin

“Great food, great value! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

The staff are polite and friendly, the food is excellent and the atmosphere is relaxed. Can't recommend this place enough to you. The veg curry was delicious and excellently spicy. Free WiFi and lots of open windows to keep you cool. Loved it.
