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.

Ordered parcel here and it took them 45 mins to give us the same. 45 mins for 3 items. Staff were giving irresponsible replies. People who came after us for dining had completed eating their orders. Poor service and pathetic staff behavior. Would have preferred to give 0 star but no option

My last visit here was nearly two years ago, in May 2015. I even reviewed it here. This time I found a little improvement in the service and the food. A long way still to go to make it in my books of Good Eating.
