In a nutshell:
Pretty cool south Indian non vegetarian restaurant (veg also available)
Address & other details: Zambar
Meal for 2: Rs. 600 onwards
Short Description – in case u r in a hurry:
The interiors of this restaurant look like a traditional Kerala houseboat……food is pretty cool, serving staff is OK OK……. moody, inconsistent, sometimes very sweet, very cold at other times.
Food is good specially the non veg platter & sea food platter. Rest we found Ok Ok. Few people have written in reviews in diff food sites (tripadvisor & Zomato) that they have fallen unwell after eating veg food here. We have eaten Nonvegetarian few times – Never had any health issues. Just thought wud let u guys know.
Detailed Description – In case u have the time to enjoy reading:
Went to Zambar last week of july after our first visit about 3 months back. Rediscovered the place.Had heard from someone that they have a good nonvegetarian thali. So we went for the Thali & ended up eating something even better + also the thali.
The something else was ‘seafood platter’ – A marvellous lipsmacking subtly spiced curry leaf fishfry, a very good prawn kothmiera (green marination) & a tasty prawn vepudu (red marination)+ a superb fish baked in banana leaf – pearl spot pollichatu. What was great was that each had its own individual taste & flavor, All had very optimally cooked seafood – Excess cooking could have stiffened it up.
Then we went for the ‘seafood thali’ – Apart from 3 non veg curries of very distinct flavors (fish, crab meat & prawns) , there was ponni rice – u cud smell the good coconut flavor in it, plain rice with the flaky red chillies, a very delicious poriyal & a sweet dish. Surely recommended.
There are vegetarian & non vegetarian (meats in place of seafood) thalis also which I have heard good praises from some of my friends. Will update as soon as we revisit to try.
