1. Mango TreeWe went here on the first night after a long chilly ride on the scooter. The restaurant sold itself on the first glimpse. It is a cozy place with mattresses on the floor for seating and has charging points at each table. This is one of the few restaurants that serves local cuisine, which could be a heaven for all the cashew lovers. A must try at this place would be the many flavors of lassi. In addition to all of this, they play really soothing music that will put you in a trance.
Last meal before setting off to Bangalore again. This restaurant serves you scrumptious local food. I tried the Meal combo and Mango Lassi. They also serve you continental, chinese and north Indian delicacies.
This restaurant is always brimming with travelers, relaxing after a trek, planning a new one, buzzed out or just lazing around. There's lots of yummy stuff on the menu, with delicious stuffed tomato curry and rotis for an Indian palate, pastas and pancake, Hummus, pita bread, and chips, and hearty breakfast platters.
