“A common choice in tvm”
Reviewed 23 February 2014 via mobile

The place is an excellent choice if u want good Kerala Arabian food at rates that would suit your pocket. It is not over priced and will leave u feeling totally content. Their signature dishes are al-fayam and shawaya chicken. Their range of shakes is also good with chocolate chip being a must try.
However the ambience is something that needs to be worked on. It feels like a really dingy place and the service is not quite prompt either. But that could be attributed to the fact that it is always heavily crowded and they might find it difficult to shuttle between all tables.
But all said it is a restaurant every person in trivandrum swears by. For the best food in all of the city this is the first restaurant suggested by all.

“Ambiance a zero but tastes AAwesome!!”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

It is located on a busy main road surrounded by a lot of other eateries and it was difficult to get a parking in rush hour and finally when you enter the restaurant it is not better than a road side dhabba. Had it not been for the food reviews of fellow trip adviser’s I would have given it a miss.
The menu had lot of options so just for a trial sake I ordered a grilled chicken. The service was quick and to my surprise presentable. The taste, it was aaaawesome. I ended up ordering four dishes all which were really good.
All chicken items were good with huge portion size and really cheap.
Vegetarian options are few and need not be tried here

“Relishing taste, Nourishing meals, and flourishing restaurant! !!”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

Since the first time I dined in this restaurant this has been my favourite. The chicken dishes are highly delicious and tasty. The staff is cordial and polite. The greet and welcome you on your entry. The value for money is the best. You can get a full family meal for under Rs. 500 or USD 8. will visit again. ...
