If you are the types to judge a destination by its food, then Kodaikanal will pass in that exam. It has items from Punjabi, Sindhi, and Gujarati cuisines to chocolates, lemon cakes and brownies for if you are a muncher.

Some of the have to-have to try eating joints in Kodaikanal are:

North Indian

  • Tava: An affordable option for food lovers, this restaurant does not boast a very grand ambiance or any other specialty but still is one of the most loved restaurants in the town. You might ask why. It is because of the delicious food that it serves its guests with. Come here to enjoy Sindhi food at its best along with Sev Puri and Gobhi ka paranthas. Not only that, but a varied range of other North Indian dishes is what makes this place a hit.
    A meal for two would cost you around INR 200, now isn’t that cheap?

  • Hotel Astoria: Come here to enjoy vegetarian food at its best. Now that’s something which is everywhere in Kodaikanal. What makes this restaurant crazily tempting is the ‘all-you-can-eat’ thalis that are served during the lunch time and sometimes during the evenings. The thali has to die for North Indian food with four to five items such as mix vegetable, kadai paneer and paranthas placed on a saucer that is your territory in the food kingdom. Now, because of that and also other items in the menu, this place is almost always full and one has to battle his/her way through for a corner to enjoy the food.
    One spends only around INR 35 to INR 70 for a delicious meal here!
