Quality Restaurant

A good multicuisine restaurant in Coonoor

Reviewed By RamGanesan - Chennai (Madras), India

In the first place there are not much good restaurants in Coonoor that is decent and suits the pocket. That way this place fits the bill. It is also located in the busy Bedford area and is easily accessible. Located in the first floor of a small complex, the ambience is good and the food is also good. But one cannot expect the services that you get either in Ooty or other cities. The restaurant just meets the purpose. And Sunday seems to be off which is quite odd for a restaurant!

La Belle Vie

Reviewed By AjLud - Coonoor, India

Location - Fantastic
Ambiance - Old-Colonial charm
Upkeep - Decent. Could be better
Menu - Limited, classy, exclusive
Food - Fine, as in OK, OK. Nothing to really write home about.
Possibly the only place to get some continental fare.
Exorbitant!
Service - not very quick.
What to eat? Tried their Fettuccine with Garlic Chicken. Bland for the Indian palette.
The sautéed fish platter was nice.
They do not open for Dinner.

Green Field

Reviewed By Steffi S

Very crowded, we (and a lot of other people) had to wait next to a table where people were still eating. Kind of awkward, but seemed like this was the way to go. The food though was very good! We wanted to eat very spicy in India, which was harder to get as we thought, but here they serve the real Indian food with lots of spicier dishes.

Tea Nest

Reviewed By shalinikh - New Delhi, India

Ok I can say ultra peaceful location. Its in the midst of heavens almost. Its a home stay with Very good service. Tho the negative is that all rooms dont have a view. so ask for the specific one. The breakfast is very tasty and all kinds of tea available. Food is good. The common lobby has board games. Mainly plenty of walks around and away from the city.

Hotel Sri Lakshmi

Reviewed By jaintarang11 - Mumbai, India

The place is located in the heart of Coonoor near the bus stand. It is normally crowded and there is no one to maintain the crowd. The food is ok, not that great. The place seemed to be overhyped.
