We had a dinner during mid April, the food served was okay. The entry to the Hotel is a bit clumsy, However inside the restaurant its better. The fried rice was pathetic, however the bread and main course were fine.

This place is situated set back from the road serving a mix of Keralan and Eastern foods. Service was quick and the food ok. The ramshackle hut it was situated in was not that attractive though, hence the average rating.

Unassuming and basic building with excellent food and service. They have a tandoori oven and served fish, prawns and chicken. A good menu and very friendly staff.

The food was just amazingly good. Probably the best meal in kerala. They may not have the ambience but they make it up with the tasty food and smiling staff. We ordered garlic prawns, fish with vegetables and chicken fried rice. All three were very very good. Definitely recommend it, would love to go back there.

A bit hidden away near the centre of town. Ate lunch here twice on the recommendation of our Indian driver. Tasty food was quickly provided at reasonable prices. They have a tandori for such menu items.
