The tourist village of Kumarakom is relaxed and refined, featuring lush flowery landscapes and a multicolored plethora of bird species, best enjoyed at the Kumarakom Bird Sanctuary. Glide along an intricate web of lagoons, lakes and rivers on a fully-staffed private houseboat, or settle in at a cozy B&B for some well-deserved R&R. Don’t miss the famous wood carvings at the peaceful Shiva Temple at Ettuman. Local cuisine will delight your taste buds with fresh, rich flavors and a variety of spices.

Ate here as part of 3 night stay at Abad Whispering Palms and had all our meals at this restaurant. Food quality was good - buffet or a la carte. If staying here, best to book Full Board, due to hotel's location.

The menu is extensive and great food with good portions, the service is excellent and taste quite close to authentic..though it's a bit pricey , but that is what you have to pay for the brand...
we had couple of dinners and breakfast as well...though I feel breakfast needs to improve and one thing is awkward during breakfast ,...as soon as you want to fill in the portions ..your old plate is gone and staff is not waiting to ask ...they just pick the plates ..that's a bit odd...
Overall a great experience and specially the ambience ,..the music, fragrance of atomosphere

Thali

Reviewed By Jatinder M

Stopped by for lunch, place itself is simple and easy to locate on the 2nd floor of the building. We arrived half hour after the lunch menu finished and half hour before the evening menu, the lunch menu only served Thali so we missed out. We went for the special dosa with a side vada. The vada was fresh and probably the best I've had in India. The dosa was delicious, it had a combination of paneer, masala, onions and chilli and was so nice. Worth a stop for sure for there dosa's, just time it right to give yourself more options. I've added the menu to help.

Green Leaf's Restaurants near Toyota showroom, on MC Road at Manipuzha and on KK Road Opposite Seematti, easily qualifies as a perfect highway food spot for the facilities they provide and the food they serve. Lunch and dinner hours are the best time to visit this restaurant which is open from 6:30 am to 10 pm on all days of the week.

I have been visiting this spot ever since i was a little kid. Used to go there with my father, now i take my kids there ;) . They always keep a minimum standard in their dishes as well as their service. Best option for veg/south Indian and a bit of north Indian dishes in Kottayam city.

Lakshmi Hotel and Resorts

Reviewed By PiyushK_Triphill - New Delhi, India

During our stay at Kumarakom, when we ventured out for dinner, we came across the Lakshmi Restaurant. We had roasted crabs,fish and some other dishes. The taste was yummy. We were a group of 8 people and everyone appreciated the food. The differential is, because of partital ban on liquor in Kerala, this is one of the few places that can serve beer.
