We went there for lunch. Ordered prawns biriyani, meals and one ghee rice. Prawns biriyani was too spicy. Karimeen pollichatu was good. Ghee rice was entirely different from the one we used... More

The In-Room dining was bit on the expensive side, so, I bumped into the Kumarakom. The restaurant is quite nice and ambience was okay. The choice of curries for Vegans is quite... More

Fond of fish curries and fish starter / main courses . So had been here , food tasted awesome. And also tried once at Adyar restaurant (some time back) , they were entertaining by singing some songs, which is not usual in this kind of normal restaurants. Loved it!

I had lunch at Kumarakom with my wife while we were returning from a weekend trip. We were eager to have Kerala meals after 2 days of buffet food at the resort! But Kumarakom didn't meet our expectations for a good eat out experience. We ordered seer fish fry and pomfret curry. The fry was ok but the curry didn't... More

I have been here for a number of times just because this was the only restaurant providing Kerala food.. the price I felt too too high comparing our hotels in Kerala.. may be due to their running costs they are priced high.even though they put a sincere effort to set a Kerala mood by giving jeera water, putting malayalam nostalgic...

The lunch was horrible with half cooked uncleaned fish. Complained to manager to which he replied that the fishes arrived late and so couldn't be cleaned properly. Pls avoid. There are lot of good Kerala restaurants around.
