For food, every hotel has it's own bar and restaurant where one can get food and drinks. Some places need their orders placed well in advance so inquire at the time of checking in regarding the same.
Apart from these, there is only ONE restaurant in the town called "Althaf Cafe". It is an amazing place to dine and is pretty affordable as well. It serves Indian as well as Middle Eastern cuisine catering to the crown which is mainly from Israel. You can get some nice Hummus, parathas, ginger lemon teas and pancakes here. The restaurant has an outdoor seating as well which gives you a complete view of the valley. The soothing trance music playing here is a cherry on the icing. A must visit.
After making the return journey, we checked out from the hotel and proceeded to Kodaikanal from where we had our evening bus back to Chennai. The to and fro trip for 4D/3N(Excluding travelling time) costed us approximately Rs.4000/person all inclusive. The travel time back to Chennai is roughly 12 hours.
PS: For those having motion sickness, keep some medicines handy as the roads steep and curvy on the way back and can give everyone's stomach a hard time. It is preferable to eat less before making the return journey.
