Thronged by locals for its delicious biryani, rice meals, lemon tea and fish fry, Hotel Sea-Gull in Ponnampet town of Coorg was started and is run by Mr. Somasunder, who left his police job to start this restaurant three years ago.

Hotel Sea-Gull is a no-frill, small restaurant with basic ambiance serving a tasty fare of veg and non-veg breakfast, lunch and dinner coupled with all-day snacks.
