Traditional Kerala Cuisine at its best

The Grand Hotel is one of those must-visit places in Ernakulam. It is woven into Kochi's culinary history and is the grand old lady on M G Road. Meen pollichathu (fish steamed with spices in a banana leaf) will probably be their most famous dish. All other cuisines are also available and very tasty

Grand Hotel ranks among my favorites in the city when I am in the mood for some authentic Kerala food in a nice setting. Ambiance is pleasant and relaxing. Their chicken biriyani is one of the best that I have had. Fish is also great! Do make a visit to this place if you are in cochin

Being a Keralite myself I visit Cochin every summer with my family and we make it a point to come and eat lunch/dinner here as often as possible. Grand is one of the few restaurants in the city that has maintained its quality and service (with the occasional hiccup). Yes, lunchtimes tend to be extremely busy and you usually end... More

Known for authentic Kerala style dishes, the restaurant is located in MG Rd & has ample parking. Wonderful place to go with family or friends & have great food. The sizzlers are very well done & is a must try item. If visiting on weekends be ready to wait your turn...

I have been here in 2001; and then now in 2015. Enjoyed a lunch with Family. Being a vegetarian, I was skeptical about this restaurant that is well acclaimed as non-vegetarian must visit. However, I savored my choices and I recommend this to my vegetarian friends too, though they may like to choose separate side table. I am going there... More
