Spicy chicken

My dad's favourite chilly chicken corner. Really spicy though. N equal parts bone and onion. The chicken65 n friedrice r good. But I really do miss their chilly beef. Was the best I've had, no beef item on menu now :(

I was on my way to Trivandram station to catch the train on my way home. I was looking to have lunch and then I found this restaurant. They have limited option. But good taste. Try out chilli chicken, black paper chicken, parathas and fried rice. The food is free from South Indian influence. we liked it so much that... More

Open House has the best chilly chicken in town. Other dishes are also pretty good but their chilly chicken tastes the best.

The Open House restaurant, located near the Old GPO, near Ayurveda College, is a good eatery. But finding a place to park your vehicle on the narrow, congested road is a nightmare, as traffic blocks occur in the area, at all times.

Have been savouring the Chilly chicken and Paratha from open house since the time my memories can take me. Have dined inhouse only once with friends and once with family but it was always takeaways for me from Open house. The chilly chicken at Open house is out of the world. The restaurant modified recently has brought the kitchen to... More

Went to the hotel with high expectation to have the so called famous chilly chicken and parotta. But to be frank i didn't find anything exquisite about the dish. Service was also poor.

Used to be the place to go for a unique tasting chilly chicken and parotta :) during my school days. Now the taste is not consistent and they are focusing on all the other dishes which are just average and not upto the mark. The take out Chilly Chicken was the star and its losing its glory. The same old... More

Loved the chilly chicken and fried rice from this restaurant. And its not pricey also. But for a vegetarian there is not much choice.

Been visiting this place since early 90's. The taste of the famous Chilly chicken has remained same. The menu has now been expanded and a you can find a large array of dishes, including sea food. A must visit place in TVM, and you should try their Chilly chicken and Parotta or Chilly Chicken & Chicken fried rice.
