Definitely a must visit, the staff was very helpful in ordering since I didn't know what any of the food was and they attended to my every need. The food was absolutely fantastic. So much flavor in all the dishes. They also had live music performed by local traditional artists. It was definitely worth the $43 price.

The food was beautiful, service fantastic. Thank you Vimalraj for recommendations. We had King-fisher (Indian draft beer), traditional Mangalore chicken curry with different dosais, some starters. Papadams come with chatneys , which are very good. Will be back for Kerala fish curry.
