Worth a visit due to it's history and quriky building. We had a good meal from the limited menu but did notice that there are cleanliness issues. Even the old time uniforms look as though they have not been cleaned for years. Ongoing construction right next to this historic building provides a persistent order of raw sewage. It is possible...

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.

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.
