September 2011

Hurray!
We will be in the 2011-edition of the new Lonely Planet:




Gecko Café MULTICUISINE $$ (www.gecko-web.com; off Othavadai Cross St; mains ₹100-200) Two friendly brothers run this cute little spot on a thatch-covered rooftop above the family home. The menu choices and prices aren’t that diff erent to other tourist-oriented spots, but there’s more love put into the cooking here, and the decor is fun: we liked the wall of goddesses, with Laxmi hanging next to the Virgin and Child. There’s internet and a book exchange downstairs.
