Ariya Nivas

One of the best vegetarian dining establishments around, Ariya Nivas is an attractive restaurant that offers an all-you-can-eat lunch buffet at an extremely low price, and vegetarian thalis aplenty during dinner hours. They also have a typical south Indian breakfast selection to-order.


The state of Kerala is famously referred to as "the land of spices", which is reflected in the local cuisine that makes generous use of turmeric, pepper, cardamon, nutmeg, ginger, and many other. A culinary experience not to miss is the sadya spread: a meal served on banana leaf, traditionally eaten by hand, which consists of rice and a variety of curries, along with dessert. Keralan cuisine is also famously not limited to vegetarian only, with various meats and fish represented across a plethora of dishes.
