Great buffet lunch restaurant for South Indian food. Always serving up some good curries, I love Kochin for a fast weekday lunch with coworkers. Overall pretty mild spice level, I haven’t seen any vindaloo curry here.

The staff is very smiling and distinguished, yet simple and welcoming. The food was very good with reasonable prices. The place is clean and chic inside, though it does not appear so from the outside.

We enjoyed the Kodanadu Chicken and Paneer Peas Makkhanwala with 4 paratha. Service was friendly and efficient. Make sure to have some sugar-coated fennel seeds a/k/a Mukhwas after your meal as a digestive aid and mouth freshener.

The restaurant is much nicer inside than outside, so don't be put off. The food was really delicious. We had the masala dosa, which was perfectly thin and crisp, the special Kerala chicken (Kodanadu), and the dum biryani, which was delicately spiced and so tasty....More
