The backwaters of Kerala are brought to life at this lovely little restaurant in Hoora. Meaning a mini village in Indian, Nattinpuram depicts everything from small grocery shops on the sub-continent to a life-sized house boat on its prettily-painted walls. The decidedly south Indian menu is reasonably priced and offers a vast variety of dishes. There are great starters such as the beef chilli and chicken lollipops, and flavoursome mains like the Goan prawn curry and chicken Chettinad, all served with piping-hot appams (the famous Keralan bread). Meanwhile, the servers and chefs are friendly.
