The best place for tandoor in kodaikanal. They start only by 7 pm in the evening for tandoor, but all other items are available.

The Al Baiq restaurant serves mainly Non vegetarian dishes and is one of the few restaurants for having nice non-veg cuisines while in Kodaikanal. We ordered few non veg and veg dishes and all items were rather good. The seating is ordinary style but the quality of the food will make up and the service was also good.

In kodai you have very limited option for non-veg. If you prefer eating outside then this is the best place where you get nice kebabs and grilled chicken. We had ordered naan as well which was very good. We couldn't taste their biryani as we reached late for dinner. There is a wait time for about 20 mins to order... More

I like Al Baiq. The food which is a mix of Tandoori and Chinese items is hearty. All the items on the menu are subject to availability and mood of the chef but what is served is usually pretty damn good. For this reason, the place usually draws a big crowd. It is not a fancy place and everything from... More

The non veg in hilly area is best to be avoided. But surprisingly I found the chicken especially the dry chicken items quite decent and succulent and very much worth the money spent.

The food was ok; nothing bad to say. We were a group of 5 and have ordered Biriyani, Fried Rice, Indian breads, Chicken Kadai and Gobi Manjurian. The quantity and quality was ok. The ambiance was nice. The toilet facility was not good. I feel the price was bit on higher side - One Chappathi was costing Rs. 25 and... More
