Dravida has to be the best South Indian restaurant in the city by far. There is just nothing to compare it with in the city. The restaurant serves cuisines from all the four Southern states - Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Kannada and Andhra Pradesh. The sheer variety, the quality and the taste of each dish here, is just amazing. The place does not seem impressive when you enter since the restaurant is like a long train but you will also see all the effort taken to make it look opulent. They use wine glasses and have a golden base plate on each setting with gold-plated cutlery and beautifully folded serviettes held together by a silver ring embedded with a large blue crystal. The waiters are all dressed in white dhotis and kurtas and the South Indian music adds to the ambience. But it is the food here that is king here. Start with a soup, for vegetarian the choice is limited but you should go for Kudotho Saru, a mild soup of vegetables, coconut and jaggery. Non-vegetarians have more choice. They could opt for the 'Crab Soup' – Nandu Rasam or Markandam Soup, a mutton rib bone soup. A delicious vegetarian starter one should have is 'Kuzhi Paniyaram', it is a rice batter dumpling eaten along with various chutneys. Non-vegetarians would love the 'Mutton Pepper Fry', it melts in your mouth. The main course has lots of variety. Try 'Nadan Kozhi Curry', a chicken preparation along with many layered Malabar Paratha. You can also try 'Chicken Xacuti', a popular Goan dish or the very popular 'Chicken Chettinadu'. But if you are a seafood lover, the choice is quite a lot. If you are a lobster person, try 'Lobster Ajadina' or 'Malabar Konju'. There is also 'Malabar Fried Prawns' or 'Nandu Pattu', a crab meat preparation.
Dravida Yet another hotel that has great food - with steep prices. If thats the meaning of Fine dine - then that it is. Portions are very limited- however the food is good. Needless to say ambience and service is great too . Avg cost for a table for 2 is 2200-2500/-. The menu is also quite limited although ala carte. So if your going to pamper yourself - go for it.
went for a thali lunch at this place. the decor and service are outstanding. wonderful thali with rice, sambhar, rasam, kootu, stew, non veg curries, flaky parathas, super moru, (buttermilk),appams and other stuff to enjoy. all the stuff tasted yummy and genuinely well cooked. super filling meal though pricey (5 star hotel) still glad we had the thali. we were offered filter coffee which we thought was probavbly nescafe and a rip off at 250/-a cup!!!
This restaurant came with high recommendation from a local and it did deliver! Nice ambience, fantastic service and yummy food, from starters to desserts. No need to book a table as it is an upper end restaurant and thus not crowded, but want every penny. Waiters Vivek and Sourav were professional, with great suggestions on choices from the menu. Chef came out to check on us and offered a very special dessert. All in all, value for money and great experience.
The food at Dravidian is good. Personally I love South Indian food but I am more of a Dosa and Idli person from a non fine dining restaurant! Fried Idli was ok...a little on the dry side. Potato chips were not what I expected and wasn’t anything to write home about (you can miss this one on the menu) Paneer was mediocre Chicken was tasty and full of masala The 7 layer paratha was AWESOME!! Ambience was good and the service was great! I personally would not go again but that said it’s worth going the once to experience it. Don’t go during any South Indian festival as you do not get the full a la carte menu but the special festival one that does not have much choice!
Just finished dinner at this beautiful restaurant. To add to the beautiful and serene ambience, is some exceptional food and an amazing team to give you extra ordinary service. Today's credit goes to Chef Gersome and Riju. Thank you for making it a special evening. Regards, Yemeni Ashish Bhakri
