This is our favorite eatery in Ooty. We generally stop here every time we are in Ooty. They serve Indian, Chinese and Continental. Everything we have tried is great. Our favourite dishes are Crispy Lamb and White brownie. A must try for every visitor to Ooty.

Had lunch in the glass house at earls kitchen and the fooood was goooood. The ice cream was exceptionally nice and one could develop a habit taking the ice cream. Only observation was that it appeared to be patronised by mostly europeans but i could be wrong. The ambience was welcoming and the service was efficient though it takes a... More

Earl's secret is the best kept secret at King Cliff - everything is yummy and w tried both Italian and North Indian dishes. But they are super exotic and heavy.

Earl's Secret is the best restaurant in Ooty without a shadow of doubt! Excellent food and great ambiance. Service times can be improved though. You must try the 'Earl's Secret Brownie'! I've been there twice and would definitely go again!

Went for lunch today. The food was great,must try items are- dragon chicken(starter) fried rice and butter roti was nice. They have a seperate counter for mocktails in their outdoor area, pinacolada was good. They always maintain a consistent taste for all their dishes. shahi thukra desert was also good.

This place is a heaven for food lovers. Me and my wife went here for a dinner. We had ordered continental dishes and it was prepared nicely. The ambience was also nice. We were sitting close to the fireplace and it was a beautiful experience. Needless to say that Table reservation is a must! Prices are also reasonable.

We had an option to have our lunch in this glass room or inside the hotel, and we opted for the former. I... More
