The menu has a variety of Indian and kerelaian food, and they cater for non-vegetarians and vegetarians. Be careful what you order, as everything that is served on the menu comes with some sort of spice - even the rice!! I ordered Vegetable Biriyani, which is a rice dish with lots of fresh vegetables mixed in, with some spices and chilis! The dish came served on a banana leaf in a round metal dish,and the waiters were very happy to explain what you had ordered and how you should eat the dish you chose.
The menu also has fresh crab and chicken which all come in a spicey hot juice of some kind, a lot of the time it tastes like coconut, which is probably why the name of this place is Coconut Grove.
Coconut Grove also offers a variety of beverages, from the local beer Kingfisher to branded spirits. I opted for water - always make sure you ask for mineral water and the bottle top seal has not been broken when it comes out.
For two main meals and a beer and water, our bill came to rs 300, which is about $7 - so cheap and yet so tasty!
