This is a hotel that exclusively serves traditional Kerala meals, with only vegetarian dishes in it. Hotel Shylaja has a long history of serving customers. In fact, this restaurant was started 65 years ago. In the early days, this used to be a hotel and tea shop. Later, the owners converted it into a restaurant that serves only meals. The restaurant is presently in the hands of the third generation of owners.
Hotel Shylaja specializes in traditional Kerala meals, complete with sambar, side dishes, pickle and papadam. Aviyal is available only on Tuesdays and Fridays.
