Dining here was a rare experience, they know the how to treat guests. Serving dishes according to our tastes in a polite and friendly manner, we were very comfortable having lunch and once in a while we get this experience. All my friends enjoyed the food, the service and the ambiance.

This was a good experience. We had lunch one day and went back for breakfast the next day. Its a good place to spend time just chatting while you are eating. The pace is leisurely. Overall a good experience.

We were looking for a place that serves continental food during our visit to Thekkady. We wanted a quiet place so that our family of four can sit and enjoy the meal, We had Burgers and pasta and both the dishes were delicious.

Came here for dinner one night. Absolutely loved the place. Spaghetti with meatballs... Homemade pasta and homemade meatballs! The chicken salad was beautifully dressed and prepared with fresh veggies. So it was all the more scrumptious. We loved the place so much, we had to come back for an encore. Came for breakfast the very next morning. Their English breakfast... More

Me and my friend came here off the trip advisor recommendation. It was off season so the whole of Tekkady was very quiet. The owner, David, was incredibly hospitable and friendly, turning what could have been an awkward, uncomfortable atmosphere into one where you feel you're just popping round to see a mate. The food was very very good and... More

Our Place is alive and well in Kumily. But it has moved to a better, more convenient location. If you want to find it now then head for Lake Road and the Park Gates from Ambadi Junction. After a short walk you should be able to spot the Coffee Inn on the right hand side. Keep walking a few meters and you will pass the Art Fro gallery which is on both sides of the road. The next building on the right is the new home for Our Place. Go up the stairs on the right of the building and you will come out onto what is now Our Place's rooftop premises. There are glorious views over the Periyar Meadows. The new restaurant will still be small but with a few extra tables. You walk past the kitchen going into the restaurant. This should be very welcome news for all of the many visitors who appreciated the special service offered by Shailee and David. Much as we love Indian food, one always misses the cooking of Europe. One smell or taste of David's bread will have you back in Europe for an instant. Not that you want to go back but simply that the taste bud's feel young again. The food is a touch of home and can vary from day to day, Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all catered for. David and Shailee say that they are opening from 9 am to 10 pm so there should be plenty of opportunities to sample their menu and enjoy the conversation and view. So if Our Place could be better then it is. So here's to the old Our Place and the wonderful memories it left and here's to the new Our Place and the future.
