Always great to come back here after traveling. The spiraling tower is a architectual gem by Laurie Bakker. The food is good and it is always busy. So we had to walk to the top to get a table.

Designed by the renowned architect Laurie Baker, the structure is an architectural marvel. The restaurant is run by Indian Coffee house which has 51 outlets spread across Kerala.
