If you are looking for a pocket friendly place to eat and love chinese give this place a shot. They have the best noodles and fried rice and everything is so economical. You will love the old school ambience and this place should feature on your must visit and must eat of in ooty.

American chopsuey, sliced pork with capsicum, sweet corn chicken soup, and chilly chicken were delicious. No visit to Ooty is complete without a meal at shinkows.

No visit to Ooty is comlete without dining at Shinkows.. Lunch or dinner at this old restaurant is a must and eagerly looked forward to..Their soups, sliced beef and chilli chicken are perennial favourites.
