The place take me back to childhood dad taken me to coffee house in weekends and offered crispy and tasty mutton cutlet and cold rose milk but nowadays i 'm going there definitely not for satiating my hunger pangs most of the times to infuse in the memories of the past. If you are lucky you might get somewhat fresh... More

Indian Coffee house has lost its charm. But the taste of coffee remains the same. The Dosas and snacks are okay. Service needs improvement.

ICH is loved Hotel in Kerala. It is located in many places. Near statue, in Anne's arcade is also good. Food as usual is best. Coffee/ tea is excellent. Not to mention the mind blowing masala dosa added in beetroot. The location is little inside and below the ground floor. Hence the natural lighting is not good.

Fidel Castro will be the subject of conversation at the next table,while not far away a discussion about whether Stalin or Lenin was the better leader may get heated. Only genuine revolutionaries are habitues of Indian Coffee House,a restaurant which obstinately refuses to acknowledge the passage of time,not by botox in the form of renovations,but just being itself sans apology....

First have to say there are many locations for the Indian coffee house in Trivandrum itself. Have visited the one at thampanoor (opposite the central railway station / beside the ksrtc stand) and the one opposite the museum (the canteen behind the mayor offices). Have had chicken biriyani from the latter too. Always have had masaladosa and uzhunnu vada plus... More

The coffee and tea were totally mediocre that we had. We wanted something sweet to eat with our drinks, but they had nothing. Atmosphere was ordinary/bland. Maybe that's the point?

Good place for reasonably cheap food. Neat and clean with assured quality. Local people prefer this place for their regular meal.
