Grand old place

This is a beautiful restaurant with a quaint old world feel. I visited Cochin with my wife in December 2014 and this was the first place we went to for dinner. Impeccable service, hot delicious food and that lingering Raj era feel. Truly a great place to eat at in Cochin.

This is the place I come for biriyani! I love the food here. Most of my holidays I fly into kochi and Grand hotel is in my list to visit. Highly recommend if you guys want to try some authentic Kerala food.

This is a place I always visit when I am in Kerala. The attraction for me here is the fish curry with rice with Karimeen fry or Karimeen pollichathu. Karimeen is the pearl spotted fish that is available in the back waters if Kerala. Even though it is called fish curry and rice you are served with the normal vegetarian... More

We pre-decided to have anything but Indian food because we otherwise eat that always and a no to chinese - simply because their roadside hawkers do that the best. Since we don't eat beef, and because they don't serve other meats in Continental, that was ruled out too. The only options left in their menu were local Keral cuisine (... More

We are often put off by overly extensive menus because it's unlikely that chefs can do scores of dishes all equally well. Our meal at the Grand, though, was really enjoyable. Best paratha on our trip and interesting dishes. It's calm and relaxing out of the chaos, pollution and filth of Kochi's streets.

This is our 2nd visit to this restaurant and no regret to be here with my family again. They serve good veg and non-veg kerala food. You must try to visit this place for lunch at least. One more interesting part is, you can get beers and Wine while you dine here.

Dismal atmosphere - initially I thought we must be in the wrong place. Like a canteen - no atmosphere, no music, no cables, no plants, few artworks -bright lights and no charm. Service was, at best fair. Soup slopped on the tablecloth, and no attempt to mop it up and no apology. First course OK. Second course fair, but the... More

Amazing seafood as well as veg stuff. Recommended to be had with red rice and eaten with hands! Had Alleppey fish curry and rice along with kareemeen fried. But a very noisy place!

I used to visit this restaurant every 6 months when I come to India. The quality of Karimeen has come down a bit :-( from what it was
