Kalavara used to be years back one of the premium dine in places in Trivandrum. Having shifted to Kowdiar there is a massive difference in the menu as well as the ambience. It is cramped for space. The tables are not properly places there is an acre space between the seats and the tables. The food seemed okay. We tried... More

Kalavara is quite little place best suited for family and couples. Its located far away from hustle n bustle of traffic. The ambiance is above average, menu options average, food taste average. But the place is damn cheap. You can go here if you dont want to see and endure typical rush n noise of low end fast food joints.... More

Hopeless food. no variety, no taste.. we went twice since it is very close to our work place. Both the times we were so unsatisfied and ended up wasting almost everything we ordered.

We took lunch at the Kowdiar outlet on Christmas Day. They have limited menu, but not much delay in serving the items. The chappathis, side dish, rice items, all tasted good. Looks like this is mostly a take away restaurant. There is limited seating, but ambience is good. Anyone visiting museum/zoo can access this restaurant easily. Not very expensive.

I am not a regular visitor of this restaurant and I was referred by a colleague to visit this place. I would say the place was very nice. The location is very nice and ambiance is superb. The food quality is also very nice. The restaurant has limited number of seats and so you may have to wait little longer... More

We went to order a take away at the Kowdiar outlet. Chicken curry and a few chapaties. They were okay. While we were waiting for our order, we asked for a fresh lime juice without sugar and another fresh lime in soda. We did not protest but we were taken aback that the soda doubled the price of the fresh... More

I stay nearby and a frequent visitor here. The food is very tasty, try the dragon chicken there. Seats a limited, so you might wanna be there before rush hours. For two people average cost will be less than 500 INR
