    We came here twice too. Guess why?... ;o)

    This restaurant has a better write up than Cochin Fort Restaurant on Trip Adviser however I would recommend the latter for food.

    Still, the staff were nice, food was cheap and came out quickly and hubby was able to watch the cricket on TV whilst I played with my camera as you can see from the photos :o)

    The ambience here was nice and it seemed to be popular with the locals. I would recommend that you give it a try.

    Dining at Cochin Fort Restaurant by aussirose

    We ate here twice. It wasn't because the food was fantastic.... it was mainly because we could get a cold beer here! If you didn't know.... you know now.... Not all places sell beer in Kerala. However the staff were very friendly and the wash rooms were clean. The food was cheap.

    I ordered duck the first time around and it was a bit bony. Second time I had the lamb masala...much better. Southern India doesn't really seem to do rice with their meals... more nan, roti and other breads. As you can see here Howie had fresh fish which was really nice. The second time we dined we invited Anas our driver to come and share with us. As is local custom he ate with his fingers... which I found myself doing anyway with the duck previously and moping up the juices with my butter nan ;o)

    Why is Howie looking like that in the last photo.... you say? You'll need to check out my local customs tip for the answer... ;o)

  • CHINA MIRCH KALOOR KOCHI: Authentic Indo-Chinese fusion food at China Mirch

    by mathewj Written Feb 5, 2014

    Freshly prepared tasty Indian-Chinese fusion food has a home in Kochi - and its called China Mirch. Located at the Deshabhimani junction, close to the stadium, this restaurant adds meaningful choice for the foodies in Kochi.

    Several new dishes, like the Chinese Biryani, Thai Pataka and Lettuce Wraps seduce customers with taste and rich texture. The layered spices added to more traditional Indian-Chinese dishes, like Schezuan Chicken or Spicy Chilly Chicken, make for and engaging and eventful experience.

    Added to that is the laid-back, smart-casual décor that appeals as strongly to the middle class as to the upper crust. Very international.

    Abundant parking space makes this easy to visit for families and groups.

    Favorite Dish: Thai Pataka - strong herbs and spices go extremely well with well cooked basmati rice.

  • CHINA MIRCH, Kochi: Modern Ambience, Low Price, Great Food!

    by Foodie234 Written Nov 25, 2013

    Tastefully done interiors serving tasty Indian-Chinese fusion food. First glance, feels very modern, very international, yet understated in a way that makes everyone, foreign tourists and local foodies alike, feel welcome!

    If the ambience doesn't get you, the low pricing definitely will!

    Try the finger licking good 'Spicy Chilly Chicken', the lip teaser 'Veg Manchurian' and if you want to venture towards teh fiery side, the 'Schezuan Chicken' with 'Hakka Noodles'.

    But if there is one item that is quickly becoming the calling card of this modern, upscale joint, it is the tastefully constructed, 'Chinese Biryani'. Layers of spice are artfully hidden within the grains of rise, and bring the fusion of Indian-Chinese cuisine to the forefront.

    Well done. Very highly reccomended.

    Favorite Dish: - Spicy Chilly Chicken
    - Chinese Biryani

  • China Mirch: Fresh, Innovative & Yummy

    by travelsandme Updated Nov 17, 2013

    China Mirch is this Indian-Chinese fusion restaurant with modern, upscale ambience in Kochi. The décor is very well done and feels cozy and warm. The dishes start at 60 and most entrees top out at Rs 149 and that was great for us.

    Favorite Dish: I will recommend their Chinese Biryani. Quite innovative and honestly - have not seen it anywhere else.

    A big thumps up for a new and innovative dish!

  • Inchino Restaurant: Pandunas Chicken - All the way

    by Joshuazac Updated Jun 4, 2013

    INCHINO is a nice stand-alone Chinese restaurant serving generous & sumptuous portions for great value. Their starters were excellent and we repeated our order a couple of times so couldn't really do justice to their main course. Friendly staff too. We had a great time. While Parking is generally a challenge, these folks have plenty. A valet is there to help park your car as well.

    Favorite Dish: The Pandunas Chicken and Shredded lamb at INCHINO were awesome! These are definitely Must-trys! Haven't had such good Mixed Fried rice in Cochin for a long time.

    Cochin Fort Restaurant: Good Food, Nice Atmosphere

    Cochin Fort Restaurant
    3 more images

    We stopped here for lunch after a morning of sightseeing and it was packed - mostly with locals (usually a sign of good food and value). It's a covered open-air restaurant. The menu has both Indian and Chinese selections but the specialty is the fresh seafood. I enjoyed the chicken tikka. The food and service were good and it was reasonably priced. Would eat here again.

    Seagull Restaurant: Fresh Fish & Cold Beer on the Waterfront

    Pick your fish at Seagull Restaurant

    The waterfront location makes this an ideal place to have some fresh seafood and an ice cold Kingfisher beer. You can sit on the open deck or in the 2nd floor AC room. There is also an open air covered seating area. Both the open deck and the 2nd floor room have wonderful views on the water letting you watch the ships go by while enjoying your meal.

    The waiter brought over a tray of fish for us to select our lunch. We decided on fried pomfret, fish curry (whole fish with the head), and rice. Good choices all around - lunch was tasty.

    Service was good and the AC room was packed at lunchtime with locals. Both sections downstairs were also full.

    Prices were reasonable but be sure to ask the price of the fresh seafood so you are not surprised or overcharged.

    Open Monday - Sunday 8:00 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.

    Cafe Coffee Day: Get Your Coffee Fix

    Mango Tree Growing Through Cafe Coffee Day

    For a coffee-loving foreigner living in the middle of a tea-loving country where the idea of a good cup of coffee was a packet of instant Nescafe, I was very happy when Cafe Coffee Days started popping up all over India.

    Along with capuccinos, lattes, and other hot beverages, Cafe Coffee Day offers cold coffee and other cold beverages, as well as sandwiches (veg/nonveg), and cakes on its menu. It's a great place to stop for a break and unwind.

    What is so unique about this particular location in Fort Kochi is that there is actually a mango tree growing through the building.

    Hours: Open 7 days a week from 9:00 a.m.– 11:00 pm

    Upstairs Italian Restaurant: Excellent Italian Food

    Bruschetta, Upstairs Italian Restaurant
    1 more image

    Yes, the restaurant is "upstairs", on the top floor over some shops. Owned and run by an expat, I thought it had some of the best Italian food I've had in India (and I've sampled quite a bit!). The atmosphere was casual, but nice.

    The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We were there late one night for dinner. The bruschetta appetizer was very good. For our main courses, we had spaghetti, pizza, and lasagne.

    The price was a little higher than other restaurants in the area, but all of the food is made with fresh ingredients (yes, you can tell), the portions are a good size and everything was very tasty!

    I would definitely go back here to eat! There are daily specials and plenty of vegetarian (and non-veg) options. You can also order for take-out.

    Rossitta Garden Restaurant: Nice Atmosphere, So-So Food

    by Donna_in_India Written Feb 27, 2013
    Sizzler, Rossitta Garden Restaurant
    1 more image

    The Rossitta Garden Restaurant is located in a guesthouse - Hotel Rossitta Wood Castle (we did not stay here). As the name implies the restaurant is in a garden, although it's actually more like a courtyard. The tiled courtyard is decorated with potted plants and shrubs. It is not fancy, but nice. It was very peaceful and I could see sitting and relaxing, reading a book.

    We originally went for dinner (it was very near where we stayed), which was okay, nothing very exciting. We went back for breakfast a couple of days and it was again just okay. I always wonder how you can mess up omelettes! Service was a little spotty. Rossitta Garden was very reasonably priced and it was fine for breakfast and I'd stop in again if I was nearby but don't think I'd go out of my way to visit.

    Menorah Restaurant: Dining in the Historic Koder House

    Menorah Restaurant, Koder House

    In years gone by the Koder House has been host to Presidents, Prime Ministers, Nobel Laureates, and prominent dignitaries. Today the three-storeyed Jewish heritage building is a boutique hotel and a landmark for visitors to Fort Cochin.

    While we did not stay here, we had the pleasure of dining in Menorah, the hotel's multicuisine restaurant which not only offers Kerala, Continental, and India cuisines, but is the only restaurant in India to serve Jewish food. With the Chinese fishing nets literally steps away, fresh seafood is prominent on the menu. Main course offerings include Malabar Fish Curry, Alleppey Prawn Curry, Mix Grill Seafood Platter, and my favorite (and what I ordered), Chicken Korma, which was excellent.

    The offerings for dessert included a specialty Jewish pudding (it was okay), a local favorite, Kerala payasam, and other Indian sweets. Wine and beer are served.

    The decor and atmosphere were pleasant and service was good. I'd recommend stopping in here for a "nice" lunch or dinner.
