Very good Keralan food

We've eaten at the restaurant on four occasions in the last few months and found it to be consistently good.

The food was great and authentic South Indian cuisine. Been a few time and had takeaway from here that has all been very tasty. Service was a shambles and they forgot our drinks but the food certainly won me over here. Might stick to takeaway on a busy weekend night rather than eating in the restaurant.

A local friend recommended this restaurant during a visit to Cambridge in August 2015. The staff is really nice, friendly and professional and the food excellent. All for a fair price too. Keep up the good work!

I had lunch here with two friends (one of whom had recommended it). I liked it immediately. Unpretentious atmosphere and friendly attentive staff. And the food was wonderful too! I would certainly recommend it and I am looking forward to the next time someone asks me where to eat in Cambridge as I would have no hesitation in telling them... More

Just got a takeaway - Veg bonda, Vada, Jeera chicken etc..please please please add some flavor to your food. It's like eating cardboard! Jeera chicken was with spinach...my grandmom used to tell me that chicken and spinach will end in a bad trip to the toilet...after this I'm sure she is right. I've given them 2 or 3 chances because... More

We had dinner at Cocum once when we moved to Cambridge and have made it our new go to for Indian food in Cambridge since we are lucky enough to fall just at the edge of the restaurant's 3 mile radius for take away deliveries! The food is always excellent, I couldn't recommend it warmly enough. The restaurant itself is... More

Went with my wife and a friend for lunch. I had masala dosa, my wife had a paneer dosa and friend Mike had a prawn dosa. All really pleased with our meals, and vowed to return next time in Cambridge. Good pint of Kingfisher, too, and a fine glass of Merlot. Waiter very friendly - we enjoyed talking cricket as... More

Close to campus. Great food. Very good price (40 GBP for 3 people) and nice atmosphere. We asked the waiter for recommendations and he made a good choice for us.

Really good food. The dosas are particularly lovely. This is a really fantastic place if you are veggie or vegan.

I am a regular in Cocum, but my last two visits were my most enjoyable meals so far. If you enjoy flavourful Indian food, of high quality, and you are vegetarian, then Cocum is a must.
