We happened to visit the mangrove cave restaurant as we did a river safari by them. The servers are rude and not at all polite, we were first not alowed to enter their AC part of the restaurant to order but had to order standing...under the sun. Next after completing the river safari when we finally entered the restaurant although we have orderd our food prior to starting the safari ( 90 mins) but still had to wait for good 30 mins. Once the food came the cutleries took another 5-7 mins to arrive while we kept staring at the food. The manager of the place was using his hands all he while to merrily eat his lunch by the next table ( the restaurant had only us as the guests at lunch). The chefs ( as it was an open kitchen) appeared pretty naive and seemed to be confused even to cook a simple white sauce spaghettis pasta. Finally, when we tasted the food it wsa Horrible!! Overall avoid this place in all possibilities.More

This restaurant is located right opposite the boat ride for the Mangrove. After a 2 hour boat ride, we were looking for a comfortable place to have meal. The restaurant is AC, provided us with a delicious, hot Indian Non Veg buffet at a reasonable...rate at a short notice. With a good seating and helpful staff, the restaurant is a good place to have a meal comfortablyMore
