Definitely worth a try!

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.

The taste of chilly chicken and chilly beef is incomparable. Porotta and fried rice are also extremely good.

This small restaurant near the dhanya - ramya theatre complex is probably the only place in town which still serves the unique trivandrum version of chilly chicken since early nineties. The experience can turn out to be quite nostalgic for those who spent their time in tvm in 1990s. Worth a try for everyone else too!

I am a usual visitor of Open House at least once in a week.. The most tastier Chilly chicken I ever had... Also They have a best Service Team who serves food with smiling face... A different recipe of fried rice also.. The Best Restaurant which am suggesting to everyone.

No doubt .. Chilly Chicken and Paratta .. or Fried rice .. Love it then and love it now. They have arranged space for dine in. AC and normal .No soft drinks served.

Used to be one of the best places in tvm for chilly chicken, however over time they have gone a bit too self confident and wavery on the quality. I have waited for close to an hour for take away here in the past and considered it worth. Now, I am happy to enjoy the food for a change though... More

Thinking of a party, this place is the best to order and take hot and spicy food. Have tried this place several times and has been awesome.

When you come to Trivandrum, plesae do not skip having Chilly Chicken and Kerala Porotta from Open House. Though it is a restaurant with seating its best to take a parcel from there as the neatness and service are not commendable. If you want to take a parcel go to the restaurant around 8PM otherwise there are chances of the... More
