Good place, Level of Hygiene is very good. Excellent staff and support by the team at White Gate. Definitely worth staying. Just one suggestion is to have more south Indian dishes on the menu in Ottapura.

White Gate is situated at my hometown Vaikom and we visit their restaurant everytime I go to my village. The best part about their food is that it is always fresh. Very good customer service, pleasant and active staff, hygienic and clean interiors are other highlights to mention.
