Hotel Janardhana aka Pazhamkanji Kada as it is popular among its regular customers for its specialty dish, which you won't find even in any five-star hotel. However, for any common Malayali, this is a dish, which brings nostalgic feelings to his mind about the homemade food.

This restaurant, which is almost 25 years old started serving this dish very accidently, some ten years back when their morning dishes got over, and some of their regular customers asked them to serve them something, as there is no other restaurant anywhere near. Janardhanan served them Pazhamkanji, which he kept for him and his family. When the customers liked it, they asked him to include it to their menu, and more customers came every other day asking for this dish.
This small one-room restaurant is located on N.H 47 at Kuriyodu, Nilamel just two kilometers away from Chadayamangalam.

They do not have parking area, but there is plenty of space near to the hotel on roadsides where you can safely park.
