Always - for a quick bite

I recommend the delicious and filling mutton omelet and wonderfully poached eggs. For old times sake, I'd try the meat cutlet stuffed with beetroot and carrot. Quick service and humble but clean service.

Managed by the Employees' Society of the chain, this has been a boon to travelers, bachelors and persons staying away from their families by providing clean, tasty items. The most popular items are their Dosa varieties( not too wide a... More

Though the old building is demolished, ICH (as popularly called) is located in the basement of the building which has come up. Located in the main thoroughfare of the city. Taste is good but cleanliness is to be improved alot

Its a nice place for cheap and tasty food and just near the railway station. The building itself is also quite unique. The chicken biriyani at this place was really delicious!

Whenever I'm in Trivandrum this is the place to eat I usually choose because of its proximity to the train station, very low prices and the building itself! Parotas here are great, and sometimes biryani or korma are good too. Otherwise the quality of the food could be improved, and some of the waiters could be more welcoming:)

This isn't for the faint-hearted tourist. The service is slow, the food greasy and the coffee is the traditional weak, sugary type that might not suit the Western palette. BUT, it oozes local charm and is a popular haunt for local Trivandrum residents. The architecture is fantastic and it is certainly very good value.

Indian Coffee house is a network of restaurants you can find in most cities of kerala. Low cost food.The menu and quality of food is almost similar (but not exact) in every branch.That is the advantage for a traveller. The coffee is excellent and is made from freshly ground beans, You can try Masala Dosa also, but is far behind... More
