visiting Kochi after years abroad my experience has been exceptional. Manager Syam and his friendly staff Shreeraj, Sneha, and Subri made every effort to make it happen. Onam sadya is traditional with all the vegetarian dishes served on a banana leaf were amazing. Chefs Anoop...and Aneswar pay attention to detail and each preparation is bursting with flavor. Karimeen Pollichathu's presentation and taste are superb. Egg roast masala with Appam was yummy! The unique tastes and textures of Kerala beef preparations were mouth-watering! parathas were flaky, and soft great with the nonveg and veg options.More
