If the food quality is improved, and the menu is made a bit made little inclusive, this place has a potential to turn out to be the best hang out place. Out of ten, the nine marks go to the building, which is designed in an amazing way by architect Laurie Baker. The food and coffee got no chance but... More

Indian Coffee House, is undeniably the best local hangout for all those art enthusiasts where they share the ideas, thoughts and emotions over the cup of coffee. ICH in Trivandrum, especially the one near Spencers is the social hub of laureates, where they spend hours in deep discussions. This has been a practice long before and it still continues through...

Since my first visit in the early eighties, I have been here and in a few other recommendable branches of the Indian Coffee House (ICH) in Thiruvanantha-puram several times. Among these, I frequented the ICH near the secretariat quite often. The most well-known however is the ICH, Thampanoor in the middle of the city close to the main Bus Stand... More

By ground shaking i mean the prices for items here is very low. Service is really fast and accurate. Reasons not to skip this place: First, you can get the best egg and cheese sandwiches, juices, bondas and many other tasty items here within no time. Second, prices are really affordable. Third, dude! the structure of this building is amazingly... More

Hats off to the incredible spiral architecture of Indian cofee house trivandrum. the very first thought that rushes to the mind might be " If i slip, won't i go all the way down". But once you get in, all the doubts are laid to rest. the thickly crowded cafeteria is a personal favorite of mine. T you can see... More

The unique architecture of this restaurant from outside would attract any new traveler in Trivandrum, and when one enters, the extra-ordinary spiral-ascending seating arrangement should be the most entertaining factor to experience. Otherwise the interior, service and food is like most other Indian Coffee Houses across India, with decent food that fits everyone's pocket with laid back service.

"If they drop stuff, does it go rolling all the way down?" might be one of the first questions that come to your head as you sit watching the waiters scurry up and down the spiral skeleton of the Indian Coffee House. It's right next to the Thampanoor bus stand and through the small gaps in the red brick wall,... More

Located directly across the street from the railway station, this interesting coffee shop is unique in experience and architecture. We arrived when it was very busy and were directed to share a table. However, the place quickly emptied out and we got our own table. We ordered puri and masala dosa along with juice and coffee. The coffee was acceptable,... More

The Indian Coffee House was started by the Coffee Board, but now it's run by a co-operative society of the employees & so we can say the original pomp & splendour gone. It's a boon for the middle class & the food catered is value for money. The layout o this place is along an upward spiral with each table... More
