This hotel is basically an extension of the house where the owners of the mess live in. There are- two main dining areas here-one is a small building on the side of the house with few tables and chairs, while the other is on the front side of the house in an open space with a tin sheet roof top. Initially, this restaurant operated just from the building on the side of the house,but now with the increase in the number of customers here, the lawn in front of the restaurant has also been converted into a dining space. The well at the fore of the house is where the drinking water supply for the customers comes from. Overall, a pleasant surrounding gives this place a homely feel from the beginning itself.

‘Ayakoora Fry’ made with Sear fish is the most in demand fish fry item with the meals here. This fish fried with the masala will surely leave you licking your fingers. This dish is prepared in a way most popular in the northern parts of Kerala where they fry the fish really light to retain the juiciness of its flesh. ‘Ayakoora Fry’ is available here everyday.
