Had dinner here. Looks very basic but the food was one of our best meals since being in Kerala. We had a range of curries with rice and porotta. Delicious.

A nice open restaurant with a rustic feel and friendly staff. Good basic menu that also accommodated some amendments to the menu, like a request for chips! One of the nicest places to eat whilst travelling around Southern India. Well worth a visit.

This place is down some stairs & off the road. It's very small - 20 chairs only. It's also quite basic but the food is excellent & a very good price. The cold beers had all been sold to a group when we arrived so...we had to wait a while for more to be chilled. I would definitely recommend this place for a low cost but excellent mealMore

Yummy food and fun vibe. I was there in a tour group of four. We were welcomed and the beer was really cold. Everything was clean. The owner was very friendly. I’d go again.

Nice enough place and it was good to order beer. My wife's dinner was excellent and my sauce was also excellent however the chicken was really tough. Would give them another chance

Seems to be a place that attracts overseas travellers. Could it be the cold beer? It a nice quiet little cafe that has some decent food options.

We visited Kumily a family with 3 kids. We ended up eating here twice because the food was so tasty! We enjoyed the (western-music) playlist almost as much as the food…

Well curated and prepared food menu. Catered to all kinds of continental / Italian palates. Very little Indian cuisine stuff but that’s not a show stopper. Service could have been a little faster though. Very popular place for the young crowds / coming for small...parties or on a date etc.More
