a pretty good restaurant,serves you good food at a price.enough parking for vehicles and a few places to visit nearby. You might need a Vehicle to travel for visiting most places fro here. visit Pai dosa nearby for a variety of dosas and Kayees Biriyani for amazing biriyanis.

Great Kerala food. I went here because I have heard so much about their karimeen and I felt nostalgic on a visit to Cochin. Now I remember why I dont remember the karimeen, because it is quite forgettable. Over fried and tasteless. The rest of the food was good and the place has been able to retain a nice oldworld...

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...
