“Nice food, slightly strange setting!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2012

I had the paneer butter masala here, which was lovely (although a quite spicy version - perhaps not the place for non-spice lovers!)
but there are also a good choice of continental dishes here too, as well as Indian ones.

Service was friendly and efficient, the only thing really letting this restaurant down was the setting which felt a little makeshift and dingy. Hotels tend to recommend it though, because it is safe and friendly.

“Fantastic Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2012

Very nice and cosy restaurant in the nice village of Thekkady, near the entrance of the tiger reserve, so it's very well situated. The waiters and staff are very friendly and the food is delicious. Don't missed the massala chai. There and not many tables but you don't need to book in advance.

“Full of character”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2012

If you are staying near the Theklady Road entrance to the Tiger Sanctuary, there are really only 2 places to have dinner, the Bamboo and a rather corporate hotel (which is best avoided). The Bamboo is set back from the road and does not look very appealing - but don't be put off. The food is good - and a serreptitious beer from a teapot is always welcome.

“Best place to eat in Kerala”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2012

Our driver, Prince, recommended this place (they had a restaurant in Cochin for 15 years, I believe). The place doesn't look much but the food is delicious and excellent value.
