Once, in Kerala, eating out meant that you’d either been thrown out of the house or your wife was a lousy cook. The outcome was that what the world came to know as 'Kerala cuisine' (parotas, chili fries et al) was actually anything but.
That’s when we decided to use the common ingredients of the Kerala kitchen to serve our guests the most authentic, home-cooked Kerala food on a banana leaf. Expect genuine fish curry with bones in it, tapioca with crushed bird’s eye chili and more... So when you drop into Ayemenem, our lakeside restaurant, come prepared to be surprised. Even if you've had lots of 'Kerala food' before!
At our lakeside grill, we have a fresh approach toward cooking seafood. Thanks to a super hot clay oven that cooks a fish of up to two kilos in seven minutes flat. So it retains its essential juices. Add on innovative marinations like the Bird’s eye chilli and pearl onions and you have an experience that stays on the palate. And in the memory.
The Heron's Pond, our Bar, serves up 6 different coconut cocktails.
Sample one and you'll see that fresh coconut has a taste all it's own, even if you've had your share of Pina Coladas
