Topform Restaurant is so famous for its Chicken Biriyani. Though many hotels started business in Kozhikode this hotel remains one of the best options when it comes tasting Biriyani. The ambiance of the hotel is superb. It is neat and clean too. Now they have two hotels one at SM Street and the other one at Mavoor Road. The hotel... More

As a school kid, I used to long for the chance to have Malabari Biriyani from Topform Restaurant. Whether chicken or mutton, these biriyanis tasted special. I became a foodie because of restaurants like Topform, Paragon, Bombay Hotel, Sagar in the 1980s. After college days, left Calicut and had rarely visited Topform thereafter. In a recent visit to my hometown,... More

This one of the famous hotels in Kozhikode. it is situated in the midst of the busy street called S.M Street a.k.a mittayitheruvu. We went there to have traditional Malabari Biriyani as this shop is famous for it. It is close to the Calicut Railway station.

Another great family joint offering fabulous north Kerala cuisine. Service is also very good. We had 3 great dishes.'Kozhi Nirachathu' or a thick chicken gravy is clearly their signature dish. Have it with Wheat Parota or Pathiry which is like flat rice chapati. Next yummy dish was 'Avoli Moli' a white sauce fish dish (Avoli looks a lot like Pomfret).... More

The thing i like most about topform is the kerala paratha and chilly chicken, its a deadly combo. Biriyani is also good, since it is located in sm street, prefer to go there late nights when you cna park at mele palayam road.

It's a 40 year old restaurant, well known for its traditional food items. If you are a biriyani lover you must try their chicken or fish biriyani. Even the other traditional food items like meen mulagittathu, nadan kozhi curry, ari payasam are worth trying. We were delighted with the food as well as the hospitality provided. Thank you

Went there for lunch today and I was so delighted by the authentic Calicut biriyani, mean mulagu ittadhu (A variety of Kerala fish curry) which went well with the wheat paratha, which was no way less in taste when compared with a Malabar paratha.. We finished our meal with a cup of Ari Payasam (Rice porridge). It was a happy... More
