Prefer to park outside, because getting to park inside the hotel premises is a bit like a driving test. Once inside, the staff are prompt, and the service is quick. Quality of the food is very good.

This is still the place to go to for finest Vegetarian fare in Trivandrum. Located opposite the Secretariat, I have been here as a child with school friends and still the taste lingering in my memories made me go again this time. No difference. Spot on tastes and spot on service. Fast and efficient as always

Food is really good but service is terrible. I visited this restaurant twice. Second time i had to walk out of restaurant because no one was interested in taking order. Ambience is good.

Weekends are a no-no in this lace. You may have to wait a few minutes which may extend up to one hour. The food is terrific and so is the interior. You will be welcomed by a smiling supervisor and depending on the size of members, they will guide you to a comfortable place.You will be greeted by a smiling... More

I have never had such a good onion Uthappam in any restaurant in Kerala before. Spotted Pongal on the menu card but was told that it is... More
