Very limited options over lunch. Quality of food was so so... Over priced and not very healthy too. (am being very polite when i say so). If you can, please avoid this while you are in Kumbakonam. There are quite a few options around for good food.

Special meals which are priced Rs. 185 is not what is stated in the menu and it is a total scam. It is almost the same as regular meals and you don't get all the special items stated under the meals. So, you end up with normal meals and paying 2 times the cost of the meals.
