    Restaurant Muthu

    In a hurry for curry? Drop the worry and head to this humble restaurant to get your craving fixed. The verdant leaf is generously piled with a mound of white rice, accompanied by complimentary vegetables, resoundingly crunchy papadams and curries of your choice. Every additional dish is worth devouring yet the stars are their Boneless Fried Fish, plump cubes of tender fish deep-fried after a rich marinade, as well as mutton gravy, thick and creamy with hearty chunks of meat. What better way to invigorate the spice aftertastes than a glass of lathered tea, their specialty too. Quick service is another noteworthy point.

    Just take some time and admire the picture above, it’s a beauty. To scarf down the mammoth fish head simmering in a scarlet curry, make your visit to this huge establishment. It’s rather an upmarket eatery with authentic Indian decorations and ornaments that set the mood straightaway and ensures grabbing a place in your Instagram feed. The basic banana leaf rice set comes with three wallops of vegetables, crunchy papadam and curries of your choice. Sweeping through the menu would be challenging, you just  desire for everything in it. Yes, we felt that too. Not to be missed is their chicken masala, squid sambal and aforementioned, the fish head curry. The fish is fresh and tender and the spicy curry just enhances the whole dish. Done with the feast, tame down the heat with a refreshing glass of lassi.  Not a surprise why the restaurant is highly ranked among the locals, from breakfast to dinner.
