My favorite is their authentic Kerala style food. Karimeen Pollichathu ( pearl spot fish cooked wrapped in a banana leaf ) is their trademark. Whenever... More

The Grand Hotel is a hotel with a heritage touch and the same can be said about the restaurant. The seafood dishes here are the most popular. Kerala dishes are very good too. Do try their specialties like Ammachi's Chicken. Their Dum Biriyani is also good. Can be crowded and you may have to wait for your turn.

I have been coming to this place for years now and the food quality amazes me every time. But the crowd has dwindled especially after the new liquor law came into place and today was a low day as I saw empty tables and chairs on the bar and the restaurant crowd was just ok. Booze or not you must... More
