Beef roast with paratha\chapathi
or chilli beef with chapathi etc...
Favorite Dish: Thattu dosa and Masala Dosa
The staff will ask you what sort of food you like and how spicy you would like it before he actually starts cooking. For us it was a little difficult as my husband an I like our food very spicy, and my parents like it very bland.
The table was laid outside in a lovely setting with fairy lights on the fence and candles on the table. The food was exquisite and there were dishes to everyone's taste.
Favorite Dish: Although all the food was delicious, my absolute favourite was a ginger chutney (served so that we could make the food spicier than my parents). I enjoyed it so much I asked for more, and the chef was delighted!

the open-air restaurant by the poolside overlooks the sea. catch a seat by the edge so that you are closer to the sea.
the seafood is great (usually...). talk to the waiters to see what is good that day. try their lobster and prawn preparations... their thai food is suspect.
Favorite Dish: a loster curry (forget the name)

Thali is a delicious local dish made of rice, fish/meat, vegetables and some sauces. In the villages they serve it on banana leaf, and you are supposed to eat it with your fingers, taking the rice and mixing it with the sauces and so.
If you are in the mood for lobster, just go to the nearest beach and ask the local fishermen. They might have a fresh just caught one ready for you. You buy it, take it to the nearest beach restaurant and have it grilled... delicious!!
In India you can easily find street vendors of many diverse and delicious fruits. They are cheap and very tasty.
