“Nothing Special”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

This review is for the Malgudi Cafe inside The Green Hotel. We did not eat at the main restaurant.

The cafe was not worth visiting, unless perhaps you are staying at The Green Hotel. We visited while just exploring the outskirts of the city and killing time and were not impressed. We ordered masala chai, a fresh lime soda, and lemon swirl cake. We were the only customers and it was 3pm on a Wednesday, but this simple order took 30 minutes to fill. When it came out, the tea was room temperature and the soda was incredibly sweet. The cake, however, was delicious and had been heated up which was a nice surprise.

The prices were average and the location is not super convenient, though taking the city bus out there was cheap, efficient, and a lot of fun. It is bus 266, which you can pick up at the Central Bus Station behind Mysore Palace. The trip is about 15 minutes, there's a bus stop directly in front of the Hotel, and it costs about 15 rupees per person. It says something that the bus ride there and back was the highlight of our visit.

“Nice setting, very average food. ”
Reviewed 1 February 2014 via mobile

The grounds are beautiful, the staff are well presented but the food is far too expensive for what you get in return. I ate two meals here and while both were pleasant, mostly due to the company and surroundings, the food was distinctly average. If I order a sandwich, I would like for some of the filling advertised in the menu to end up in the sandwich, rather than wonder if I'm eating bread with a hint of something subtlety hidden.

Come here if you want to enjoy a nice ambiance without too much consideration for value or money.

“Breakfast in style ”
Reviewed 26 January 2014 via mobile

We just came for a quick breakfast and were delighted by the food, beautiful gardens, friendly people and quick service. My wife's breakfast omellete was made with cream cheese and my indian semolina was simple and very tasty. Even the toast was nice. The chai masala came in a big pot.

Its not the cheapest place but it's all for a good cause, staff are locally recruited and well paid and all profits go to a good cause.

“Very British”
Reviewed 11 January 2014 via mobile

Lovely place for a nice relaxed lunch or dinner, close to Gokulam which makes it even more attractive. They have a caffe with cakes for afternoon tea. I have visited a few times, and like it.

“Awesome Ambiance average food”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

This could have been stunning if they had served good food. What got me touched was when I was told that the earnings go to charity, then I told myself never mind just eat :) Beautiful place good beer average food. I would recommend this restaurant because this is serving a purpose.
