I had wanted to come to the spiral Thiruvananthapuram ICH for some months so it was a bit of a dram come true for me.

Good place around the Trivandrum centeral railway station & bus station . Unique for its spiral structure & seating arrangements. Pretty clean and just good food , nothing special though.

This place is not fit for even a comment. Very very ordinary. The taste of food from all coffee are the same. this place is no exception. Not worth giving a try at this restaurant. But a cheapee.

Some of their restaurants are pretty old and the ambience is not very encouraging with the waiters wearing soiled and stinky uniforms. However, all that matters to me is their cup of coffee.. I simply love it !!! The coffee can be accompanied by a Masala Dosa or Cutlets or fried eggs.. I'm sure you'll love it too..

Arrogant staff giving tons of attitude. Eat it or leave it is the underlying theme. I will never ever go there and order even a glass of water. Gone are those old days when ICH was the greatest hang-out joint in town, especially for the young at heart.

I came here just to experience the interesting architecture and interior of the building. Too bad the place is not properly maintained, and could get really hot if you're sitting far from the fan.

If one can judge the popularity by the number of people visiting daily, this comes among the top ten. Some people are regular visitors while many others come often. Coffee is one of the popular items here. I don't miss it whenever I pass through this place.
