So yummy!

While the restaurant is nothing to look at and the inside is pretty stale and generic, I found out afterwards it is a chain (saw others in London), this particular Cocum provided us with a delicious dinner.

I chose this restaurant for a cozy dinner for the two of us, whilst visiting Cambridge for a couple of days away. I thought the TripAdvisor reviews sounded promising and their website looked good (especially noting that they have a few restaurants). An interesting point to note is that this restaurant (and brand) is a little different from one's more... More

An uphill trek to Caste mound but within walking distance from the center of town. Simple lime-green interior. Service is fast. Cobra and Kingfisher beers on tap. Kingfisher is slightly more bitter. The menu covers a hundred (or more?) dishes; there is no restaurant that can prepare that many from scratch. Pre-prepared dishes taste bland and acquire a common equation.... More

On the way back from a disastrous meal at the Castle Inn, we spotted this Indian that was new to us. Grabbing a takeaway menu, we had a meal delivered the following week. It was all really delicious, as tasty and as spicy (or not) as the menu promised. Deep rich sauces with fall apart chicken and lamb - definately... More

Went with a group of 10 from work. We pre-booked and all was well, however, when we arrived they seemed surprised that 10 of us had pitched up. They were super polite, but it was all just slow; drinks ordered, then not arriving, then arriving later, then having to ask to order, then it took ages. We were the only... More

Great place- relaxed atmosphere, delicious food and good service. Their light and flavoursome masala dosas are particularly nice. I recommend the paneer dosa. Definitely one of the best Indian restaurants in Cambridge.

I visited here with a large group of colleagues for an evening meal. The service was friendly, the food was very nice and promptly served given the size of the group. Prices were good and the menu diverse.

This is a gem of a place to eat South Indian food. After a hard day working it is great to go and relax with a meal, the Dosa are really good , as it takes loads of practice to get them right. The soups are full of flavour

Not been to this restaurant for a VERY long time. although always meant to! Having travelled to Kerala many times, indeed going again in January, was delighted to find that this is indeed typical cuisine of the area of India I love. I am a strict veggie and my partner a pescatarian. The food was lovely, tempered to the way... More

Took our daughter out for a dosa meal to Cocum. Was pleased with the simple yet elegant decor. The food was good, not great. Friendly staff. Reasonable prices. Would like to try some of the other dishes sometime soon.
