Looking for a decent restaurant that serves Kanji and Sadhya in Eranakulam? Arippa Restaurant located close to Palarivattom Flyover has a very nice ambiance and good food. Famous for its Mamanga Sadhya, the restaurant functions between 12:00 noon and 12:00 midnight. Rawther Biriyani and Chatti Kanji are some other specialty dishes that you can find in Arippa Restaurant in Palarivattom.
Food at Arippa Restaurant Ernakulam
I used to receive recommendations about Arippa Restaurant from many of my friends and Food N Travel community. Most of the recommendations were about the one at Mahathma Gandhi Road in Eranakulam. This came as a surprise to me when I saw the signboard of Arippa near to my office on Bypass road between Edappally and Vytilla. We decided to try Mamanga Sadhya there on that day. Mamanga Sadhya was fabulous. With chicken, beef, fish curry, and plenty of vegetable side dishes, it has got a depth of flavours. However, if you look at the price, it can be slightly expensive.
On the next day, we decided to visit the restaurant again for trying their Chatti Kanji and Rawther Biriyani. Well, Chatti Kanji is less expensive and modest, but Rawther Biriyani is rich in flavours. Make a note that in Arippa they make only Beef version of Rawther Biriyani. However, I liked Mamanga Sadhya over the plain Chatti Kanji.
Location and Ambiance
I believe the ambiance is one of the reasons for the pricey meals here. If you are looking for a decent, neat and lavish ambiance with a good service, Arippa (near Palarivattom Flyover) is no doubt your spot. Ample space and good seating arrangements in Arippa Restaurant is a plus point for this restaurant. Some of the wall paintings take us back to the golden eras of Malayalam Movies. While their service is considerably good, I give more score to their ambiance.
