The varied cuisine of North Kerala is influenced by Arabic traditions due to its old trade ties. Visitors can watch the cooking process and all other food preparation activities.

The fruits and vegetables are grown in the organic farm with no use of pesticides or chemicals. Authentic Kerala cuisine is traditionally served on banana leaves without the use of utensils. Let your fingers do the work, and be prepared for a finger-licking good dining experience.
