Short description- in case u r in a hurry:

We decided to eat out here one evening while at alibaug. We were looking for authentic Marathi cuisine. 


The service was very good


The interiors were beautifully done


I remember the bullock cart outside the restaurant 


Menu card was long with detailed description of the dishes


Loved the food

Detailed description- in case u hv the time to njoy reading:

As we sat, we were given shots of sol kadhi, Aam Panna and buttermilk


Sol kadhi was a bit sweetish than the thali restaurants of mumbai. It was thick and flavourful. The coconut milk was a bit more and that reduced the punch of a regular sol Kadhi. However it was a very nice drink. Rate it 4/5


Aam panna was a bit more sweet than ideal but it was very refreshing. Rate it 4/5

Buttermilk was very nice. Great taste. Perfect balance of sour and salt. Rate it 4.5/5

Then they gave us Fried papad with 4 chutneys


Coconut green chutney was dry, thick, intense and very good. Rate it 4.25/5


Green chilly chutney – we polished off one portion and got a refill!!! Rate it 4.95/5


Tomato chutney was very good but not as good as its other brilliant Brethen. Rate it 4/5


Red chilly chutney was very enjoyable as well. Rate it 4.5/5


We ordered Kale mutton sukke. The meat was full flavoured, bold, soft and chewy. Loved the spices and the way they merged with the meat. Rate it 4.5/5


Waran (dal) was outstanding. Simple, home like, thick, flavourful and just too good. Rate it 4.75/5


Tender coconut and cashew curry was excellent. Both cashew and tender coconut was very soft. The curry was excellent. Rate it 4.5/5


For dessert we had Modak. It was thicker than the best outside but had a very good filling. Not too sweet, flavours of ghee. We were given liquid ghee to pour on top of the modak. Rate it 4.25/5


Overall rating of food at kokum and spices averages out to 4.4/5


Look forward to revisiting
