If you love Biriyani,you should visit here. Though I am a vegetarian,my husband loved the Mutton Biriyani and Chicken fry. Biriyani rice is more tastier here than the Ghee rice. It's all very reasonably priced as well. It's not a place where you will sit,relax and eat. It's more like eat very tasty food and leave because there are lots... More

We arrived at Kayees, Darbar Hall Road, at late afternoon, and had very little options left. As most of their popular delicacies were finished. So we had to be content with Chicken Biryani, Fish fry and kalamari roast served with tamarind chutney and salad. Though the taste of the biryani is totally different from Awadhi and Irani style Biryani (... More

You should visit the Mattanchery one rather than the Durbar Hall Road one. I liked it very much. Be there by Midday before the rush.

Excellent Biriyani. I would say it is best you get in Kochi. Please go by 12:30 to avoid rush.The dates pickle given along with biriyani is also good.

We are regulars at this place. The mutton Biriyani is absolutely to die for and the small portion of chicken fry makes for an ideal combination. Everything else in the menu is just passable. The Biriyani gets over pretty early so make sure to get there a little early before prime meal time.

Liked: Biriyani is superb. Dislike: the rush. Might need to wait for a seat. But I think, it is worth the wait.

Hopeless biriyani ever had during our stay in Kochi in last July 2014. I felt Kayees, DH Road, lost their traditional biriyani recipe. No recommendation for biriyani lovers.

We arrived at Kayees at 1.00pm and the place was jam packed with the lunch crowed .The restaurant is a 2 storey building with air conditioning on the first floor. As we entered we noticed that there were at least 20 people from all walks of life seated and waiting their turn to get a table. This made me realize... More
