Variety is the spice of life. At Quiet by the River, the menu changes daily, making every meal a pleasant surprise as well as a feast in its own right. Go beyond the tried and tested fare and delve into authentic dishes and forgotten recipes that have been unearthed and recreated for our guests. The use of a variety of spices is sure to give your taste buds an experience of Kerala cuisine that you will not forget in a hurry.
Kerala cuisine spans centuries and each region boasts of its own specialties. Great care is taken to create a homely environment and guests are asked for their tastes and preferences during their stay. Many of the ingredients used to prepare the dishes are grown in the organic garden located within the lodge. Proximity to the Periyar river means fresh river fish takes pride of place on the dining table. In addition to the delicious food, we also offer unique dining experiences. Enjoy an unforgettable candlelit dinner right on the banks of the Periyar surrounded by the forest with the spectacular night sky above. You can also ask our chef to pack a picnic basket for you for a unique meal by the riverside or while exploring the forest.
