A government guesthouse run by Kerala Bhawan, this eatery’s popularity is through the roof.

The delicious Payasam served at the end is a perfect way to balance the spice and end the grand meal on your sweet tooth.

Mani’s Lunch Home does Onam in frenzied passion. With an award-winning ambience (we aren’t kidding), the waiters are clad in the traditional mundu to give that extra whiff of being transported to Kerala. Their Onam Sadhya meal includes three rice courses, each served with parippu (dal), sambar and rasam with a side papadums, buttermilk, pickle and plantain chips and intoxicating gravies such as kaalan, avial, thoran, olan, pachadi. Mani’s Lunch Home will be orchestrating their Onam Sadhya for the next Sunday (September 10) so you have a bit of time on this one.
