I had been a longtime customer of this hotel. The hotel used to offer wonderful south-indian delicacies, till some time back, when the place was a small time eatery.
After renovation, this family restaurant has been taking people for a ride, with their pseudo-south indian cuisine. Also the rates are not worth the quality of food. I had couple of instances when the ordered dish was way different from it is supposed to be, and I had a feeling that it was something served to me but ordered by some other guy.
The place is crampy, since they have stuffed in more seats, not much free space to sit comfortably. You can extend your hand and share a dish from the next table....
Pricing on the higher side for seafood and surely not worth the food quality. limited family seating, so you might require to wait for some time, esp. on weekends.
For traditional kerala food, in Chembur , i would recommend some other small sized eatery (like Sunny Hotel on Tilak Nagar road) who offer better taste at a reasonable cost.
This guys are charging the customers for their renovation cost... earlier the food was better, looks like now they have even changed the cooks.
