I went there on a visit to Ernakulam with family. The food is arguably the best in any genre that I've had. The karimeen pollichattu (fish in banana leaf) and the biriyanis are mind blowing. The desserts are topping. They are so confident that you'll come back for more because they don't make them like that any more. So when... More

The Grand has been providing good food for over 30 years, maybe longer. The place to go to for authentic Kerala food - fish in particular. They specialise in Central Kerala recipes. It's the place to take friends to and to go for family dinners. It's fairly large but on account of its popularity you may have to book in... More

We had biryani and fish karimeen which was really delicious and the place is really ambient, one drawback is service which is very poor, servers don't keep up with the request had to remind about our orders which was getting delayed very poor service, food tastes really yummy but with a high cost, all the items mentioned are way too...

Ask for a regular meal and you have a variety of typical Kerala vegetarian delicasies namely boiled rice, sambar, rasam, avial, thoran and payasam and plenty of fied papads and fried hot chillies and buttermilk. Enough for a vegetarian. And if looking for fish; you have karimeen and of course tasty prawn fry too

The must visit place when you travel here for food with great Kerala flavors. Specialty is their Karimeen fish. Crowded by 1pm so try to get in early to ensure you get a table.

If the Grand were one of the run-of-the-mill places with a taste of local cuisine, I wouldn't have taken the effort to review the restaurant. Very ordinary seating arrangement in a spacious hall (yes, that's what it looks like!) only means it cares that much more about what it serves! Every single vegetarian or non-vegetarian dish served here is mouth-watering.... More

If you want to have an authentic big fat Kerala meals, this is the place. I have been to Grand Hotel many times and the taste and quality are very consistent. Make sure you also try "Karimeen Polichadhu". This is their speciality and you can't get a more delicious one outside.

Even though the restaurant has a wide array of food on its menu, you should go here for the kerala food, especially karimeen polichathu. The tiger prawn fry was amazing. The mutton curry with coconut milk was heavenly. The trivandrum style fried chicken wasn't that great. So I would say, try the seafood. It is exceptional. A must visit during... More
