My wife and I along with our driver had dinner at the Spice Garden. It’s a little hard to find, it’s not on the main road but an easy walk from Cardomom County which is the hotel we were staying at.

Don't get too excited as this is not fine dining, this is food from the heart, honest, full on integrity and absolutely delicious. Every time we say what was the best meal the pea masala and the banana leaf wrapped fish get mentioned every time....The chef/owner is lovely and she is cooking her home recipes and giving it her interpretation to create magical flavours as well and just honest well thought out dishes. She was quite happy when we said we wanted it spicy, nope we are not regular tourists we wanted it real. Thanks so much, we are trying to figure out how to replicate the pea masala. Oh and they have beer and wine (thank the Universe) Thank You, Wanitha, Leanne, Victor & JimMore

This is a huge restaurant with good reviews so we were surprised to find it almost empty mid week at 7:30pm.... Food was all cooked fresh to order and very tasty. They serve beer which is an added bonus.... I suspect if the restaurant had...lots of diners it could have a good atmosphere, however other restaurants have a more enjoyable experience. The waiter was pleasant enough. Overall a good meal but not a memorable experience.More

A little gem up a tiny path. The food was lovely and local. When we arrived at 7.30 it was empty (Tuesday night) which freaked us a bit but the food and service was perfect and the price wasn’t bad ... also served beer 😋

Amazing! We have been travelling for 2 Weeks in south India & have just had our best meal yet. Perfect layerings of flavours. We are chefs from Sydney and we can say with confidence this food is done w integrity; from honest home recipes. Don’t...miss the pea masala, fish in banana leaf, traditional Kerala style fish mappas and coconut rice (hand grated coconut). We are so happy. Chef/owner Rajani knows her stuff! Service is warm & efficient.More

Straight up great food cooked from scratch (so don't expect speedy). Garlic chappatis! Lovely setting outside but loads of mosquitos so wear repellant. Worth it though!

Tucked away in a lane this joint offers excellent freshly prepared food . The fried fish was without skin and very well marinated. The place is airy and clean. Credit cards not accepted.

We ordered from the Specials menu and she took time to cook every single dish and they turn out fantastic. The beef reminded me of Singapore's delicious beef rendang. Check out my other reviews I seldom give 5 star, except for Fort Kochi's Oceano restaurant...this was the best restaurant we had in the 10 days Kerala trip.More

The atmosphere is very nice, the food is good but too expensive for the quality and quantity. The beer cost more than everywhere else.

What a great little restaurant. Tucked away down a narrow walkway this is a gem of a find. Very clean with the cooks wearing hairnets and you can watch as they prepare all the fresh ingredients for your meal. Staff are friendly and helpful and...will come and ask you if your meal is ok and if you would like anything more. An added bonus is that they sell ice cold beer. Prices are very reasonable and there is a good selection on the menu.More

We went to the restaurant because of the many good reviews, but it was really dissapointing. First of all they only bring you a expensive western menu and kind off hide that they also serve local Indian food. The food is really bad, not spicey...at all. I got sick in the stomic because of the rubbery paneer, it was not fresh at all and like chewing gum. Also the waiter is arrogant. Go to hotel Central for a real local dish that is so much cheaper and very much worth the price!More
