“Good & budget restaurant”
Reviewed 23 September 2012

Located near PMG this is a two level restaurant (AC & Non AC ) with 3 car parking slots. Decent Kerala style food and very much on the budget side. Portions also justify the cost. Proximity to my home makes me a regular visitor to this place with family. Pretty decent ambience and can be opted for 10 pax parties with family and friends. Try chicken fried rice, mutton pepper soup, beef coconut fry and also biriyanis. Hotel serves Kerala & north Indian menu but I suggest Kerala menu which is worth trying. Serving time is 20 min from order.

“Pretty Ok.”
Reviewed 21 March 2012

Tharavadu is a two level restuarant situated near PMG in a residential area. I would recommend this place, if you are looking for good Kerala Style food. North Indian and Chinese is also available but its not that great.

You also would need to know that the food is pretty spicy, so incase you are not a big fan - please do mention to the waiter.
Food I recommend is Fish Polichathu, Kerala style chicken dishes. Appams are available sometimes which is good otherwise you would need to order Kerala parathas.

On the negative side, the place looks dead and doesn't have a great ambiance. The music they play is bad and sometimes they don't even play one. You tend to wait and wait for the food to be served because of that.

Overall, its a good place to go for a change.
