Small ICH compared to other branches at TVM. But I felt food is pretty good here. May be the impact of being near to and always accessible by MLAs :). Can give a try if you are going to MLA hostel for any purpose.

Only the architectural part is good. Very slow service, average on taste. Had to wait half an hour for Masala Dosa and a cup of tea. The way they take orders is like we pathetic. It's like if you want, have and go.

It's a very weird building for a restaurant It's wallet friendly and the place is perfect if you are in a hurry and doesn't want to spend much for a quick bite. The dishes get served pretty quickly and are tastey, especially the 'Masala dosa' I won't recommend it for weekend dine-outs or for a large group. If you are... More

The main outlet of Indian Coffee House is at Thampanoor near the Bus station and they have another outlet near the M.L.A. Hostel too.

They are an old chain of hotels with lot of variety of food having branches all over India. Many 80s-90s people cherish the memories of old coffee house experience. . . .some coffee and some friends and some beautiful moments. . . .

On a Sunday a traditional Kerala breakfast, that was the wish we had we accomplished at the ICH. Further a lunch at the same place couple of hours later. Nothing extraordinary - but the food was good and the price reasonable.

This is a unique building with a spiral shape inside. The tables are arranged along the spiral. I had coffee, ice cream, pineapple juice and a masala dosa. Everything was good. The waiters are dressed elegantly with headgear. The service was great too. It is located right next to Thampanoor railway station and the KSRTC bus stand. Recommended!

Indian coffee house in Thampanoor Trivandrum was once considered as an identity of Trivandrum. Because of the unique shaped building and the spiral interiors. But as a restaurant it has gone too low considering the importance it had. Food here is just average. It needs a complete clean up and renovation.
