Food Overview

Dining at Nikki’s Nest

Nikki’s Nest has two unique sea facing restaurants. Hibiscus, our vegetarian restaurant, caters vegetarian food to our Ayurveda guests, while Orchid, the sea food restaurant, takes care of one’s sea food cravings and any orders from our menu for both walk in and live-in guests. At Nikki’s Nest, we take great care of any diet needs, restrictions and concerns our guests may have. Over the years, our kitchen has tenderly dealt with various and unique allergies and diets, including those allergic to onions, garlic, tomato, aubergine, capsicum, pineapple, peanuts and white sugar and guests who require a ‘’gluten free’’ or ‘’vegan’’ diet. Guests are free to email and inform us well in advance before check in, as this will give the kitchen sufficient time to welcome you with healthy suitable dishes.  Whatever ‘’out of the book’’ concerns one may have, our chef and his crew have deep-rooted answers and will try and find ways to create food especially for you, according to your health needs.

Crafting Ayurveda Food at Nikki’s Nest

 With careful consideration to serve food according to Ayurveda principles, meticulous planning and co-ordination between our Chef and the Ayurveda Vaydyars make it possible for our guests to enjoy Ayurveda food, that has been crafted to suit a unique blend of Indian cuisine and International favourites while basking in the warmth of our tropical sun. Very popular for her authentic vegetarian kitchen, the chef and his crew have created a wave, making the kitchen continuously bustle with activity. Following the principles of Ayurveda, and to enhance detoxification, we only serve a vegetarian buffet for all our guests undergoing treatment. But of course, the sea side could beckon someone to indulge in occasional seafood, which our Chef can cater to, with approval and consultation from our Vadyars (Physicians).  As an extra precaution towards healthcare, the kitchen of Nikki’s Nest uses only bronze cooking vessels as this prevents any kind of metal or alloy adulteration.

Nikki’s Promise to Nature’s Food Source

Nikki’s Nest does not believe in the use of artificial food colouring, essence or preservatives, as we strive to serve wholesome healthy meals and we do not wish to adulterate nature for any monetary benefits. In an honest attempt to serve safe and healthy food, all ingredients utilized in the kitchen come from reliable and known sources including our own plantation at Duke’s Forest Lodge, and our family garden. Our kitchen does not believe in storing half cooked food or taste enhancer sauces, as everything is made fresh from scratch. We also do not store chilled aerated, energizing or artificial flavoured drinks, because it has been proved time and again of the high content of sugar and other unwanted chemicals. Being an environment and animal conscious resort, we do not serve meat and any meat products and this concept happens to be complimentary to Ayurveda as well. But being by the sea side, when guests crave for sea food, the Chef serves it on request, and on special occasions. Through the power of vegetarian food, Ayurveda, regular morning Yoga and meditation sessions, we wish to spread the message of good health, and awareness about healthy food and lifestyle through our kitchen and vaidyashala.

Nikki’s Cook Book

With repeated requests for the past many years, Nikki’s Nest has finally released her special cook book, much to the delight of all our repeater guests. Nikki’s Cook Book has been designed and created after a lot of research and consultation with Chef Raj, and the management team, Maria Jacob and Nikita Jacob. In addition to recipes mentioned, we have also included a small section listing out the medicinal value of spices used in Indian cooking, consulting our Ayurveda doctors, Dr Praveen and Dr Geetha. The Chef and his crew has put together wholesome vegetarian recipes from our ancient and traditional Indian kitchen, handed down from mother to daughter for generations. Indian ingredients are now available almost the world over at any Indian store. As promoters of animal welfare and environment concerns, the management of Nikki’s Nest has decided to set aside a portion of the income generated from the sale of our cook book towards animal protection and environmental care, as well as for setting up of a much needed staff welfare fund.
