Good food well presented in this little off street destination. Tucked back in a rear space it has the standard dishes expected and food comes quickly. A nice stop for lunch or dinner.

I was surprised by the number of people at this restaurant when we went there for dinner, considering it is down an alley off the Main Street, but it was very busy and we actually got the last table! Food was really tasty and served quite quickly. Recommended.

If you are going by the reviews then pls avoid.. reviews are by foreigners and they don't have taste for Indian food. Uncooked and stinking tandoori fish...horrible butter chicken and dal.. there are many better options available in thekkady... try ambadi next door way better

We went to this place for dinner and liked it so much, we went for lunch the next day. Very friendly staff and owner, good service. The menu is limited and we ordered many dishes, only the fish pieces and bolognaizze was not good but all other dishes were very nice...recommending the chilly chicken, chilly beef, naans, lemon and ginger...

Set back from the road by the giant bamboo groves, don't let the setting put you off because the food is definitely worth trying. As others have mentioned, they have a tandoori oven which equals delicious naan and tikka. We had fish tikka which was lightly charred and flaky coconut naan with prawn masala. Yummy and very affordable. Great lunch... More

Great little place, we noticed it from a distance because of its distinct layout. The food was amazing and total value for money.
