The dinner beagn with Iyer's special and chutneys.Iyer's special is basically Banana dosa and adai.The chutneys were finger licking good.
The non veg thali had a chicken starter Kozhi mundri varuval was small chicken pieces cooked with cashew nuts,mild ting of the cashews made the dish outstanding.Kadamba Varuval of the seafood thali was squid cooked in south indian style,the squids were soft and not rubbery at all.
The non veg thali had a mutton curry,prawn curry and chicken along with other veg dishes.Everything here was so well cooked,the mutton so tender just melted in the mouth,chicken was cooked in Andhara style and was the only spicy dish.
Prawn completely stood out,I have never had such tender prawns anyhwere till now.The quality was superior and cooked perfectly,they melted in the mouth with a crunch.Hats off to the chef for taking such good care of the quality.Surprisingly,that small bowl had around 8 to 10 prawns.
Had an amazing time,enjoyed every dish- a must visit place.
