The Hotel Blue Nest was just down the road from where I was staying, and close to the train station. I came here for breakfast which cost Rs60 for fruit or juice, cereals, 2 eggs, toast, and tea/coffee. Main dishes from their 20-page menu include lots of curry dishes such as egg (Rs25-30), seafood (Rs75), chicken (Rs65), mutton (Rs75), beef (Rs40), veg (Rs30-50) plus many Keralan specialities such as coconut fry. They also do Chinese dishes such as beef (Rs45), mutton (Rs75), chicken (Rs65) and prawns (Rs75).
The Daavat Restaurant was on the rooftop of my hotel - the Hotel Regency (which is about 500m from the train station), and did some very good food with quick service. On the menu are Indian, Chinese, continental and South Indian dishes with soups costing Rs30-40, Chinese beef dishes Rs40-50, chicken dishes Rs65-75, sizzlers, chicken stroganoff, coq-au-vin, spaghetti Bolognese and chicken-a-la-king. Beer costs Rs65.

A very good tandoori restaurant. The restaurant is in the Recidency Tower hotel. You have beautiful views of the city from here.
The food and service = very good.
I would love to go back there!
Favorite Dish: Several dishes
This restaurant was reccomended to me by the hospitality desk at the hotel where I stayed. I had a very good experience here. The service and food = very good.
Not everything on the menu is always available, it seems that 11h00 to 15h00, and then the evenings are the best times to visit. During these periods, most foods are available.
Favorite Dish: Masala Dosa
My visit to Trivandrum was as a tour. We were deposited at this restaurant for lunch, after a morning spent sightseeing
I remember was, there was a strong smell of cinnamon as we drove up to the driveway to the entrance.
This was quite a smart place- we were shown upstairs, into our private dining place, where our guide quickly abandoned us!
5 people left to 'make friends'- 2 couples and me! So it was a bit restrained!
After a while, waiters arrived, and a buffet table was set out- soon the table was heaving with food!
Apparently this is a 3 storey Heritage building. It's the place for more affluent locals to come for a trendy coffee or hot chocolate.
It's in Vellayambalam.
Favorite Dish: Buffet style, so plenty to chose from!
Soup for starter, then a fusion of Swiss/ Indian dishes!!
If you are a health conscious foodie this place is ideal for chicken and mutton biryani (Kerala style). They make it with less oil and spices and is yummy. Also it doesn't burn a huge hole in ones pocket.
for those whom nonvegetarian is a must , the buffet in this restaurant is a value for money.The nonvegetarian dishes especially variety of chicken is less spicy and very tasty.The choice in the salad bar is limited but good.not much variety in desserts either.
They have added a chat and bhelpoori corner quality average.
Favorite Dish: appam and chicken varieties
Just 50 m from the Vazhutacaud Junction is this small restaurant Casa Bianca. This restaurant is a house converted into a cosy little place to eat. I would say this is one of the best places in the town to dine. The menu is mouth watering ..lots of Pizza's, Lasagne... etc The ambience is simple but cosy...the flowers, lights etc adds a touch of elegance too....
Overall one of the best joints...
We first visited this restaurant on a valentines day. One thing that you will like about this restaurant is the ambience and the traditional kerala feel that it gives in a star hotel setting. I was thrilled at the prices too. 245 Rs( (about 5$) a buffet ( A three course dinner). But then I was disappointed with the quality of the food. The soups were really good, but the main course was disappointing. Overall I may go back to the restaurant just for the ambience and to try out something apart from the buffet...
Sindoor Plaza is situated in Kowdiar. This is a nice restaurant with a indoor A/C restaurant. A garden restaurant and a terrace top. I attended a buffet dinner here, it was a mix of Indian and Chinese dishes. There were lots of options and one could chose from the large mix of Vegetarian and Non-Vegetarian food available. The food was delicious, but the place was rather too crowded. My favourite was the non-vegetarian kerala food.
I got into this restaurant for lunch, tired after a long day's work. What prompted me to try it out was that t was situated at the heart of the city near statue. The restaurant is in the Comfort Inn hotel.
The ambience inside the restaurant was pleasant and refreshing, the staff was pleasant , but I was the only customer to service. The menu was passed on to me and it had only vegetarian chinese food. I had no choice but to try it out. Overall the food was good and different, although it was an Indian version of the chinese.
Ambrosia, being the only fast food outlet in the town is always crowded. This is what prompted me to also visit the restaurant. The restaurant is centrally located at the Bakery Junction. The ambience as i entered was pleasant. The service staff were kind enough to show me a table.
I ordered Burgers, Pizza and French Fries. The french fries were soggy, the pizza base was a soft bread, and the burger tasted awful. Overall it was a disappointment. We could'nt finish our order and had to leave and move out.
Considering that ambrosia is the only fast food outlet, i guess it is a nice place to spent some time.
This is a nice place to have North Indian and South Indian Dishes. The restaurant is big, and the ambience is pleasant. It is also very reasonable. I was pleasantly surprised by the service and the helpful nature of the Service staff.
The South Park is situated at Trivandrum, the capital city of the southern Indian state of Kerala. The South Park is just 6 Kms. away from the Trivandrum International Airport and 3 Kms. from the Railway Station and the City Bus Stand. It is just adjacent to the University College.
This restaurant is inside The South Park. I have been to this restaurant twice for lunch in 2006 july. The buffet here is mouthwatering, although most of the dishes are in south indian style. The non vegetarian food is just delicious. The service is really good and the ambience gives you a feeling of comfort and eliteness. What i liked was the non-veg food in kerala style, which was spicy and delicious.
The lunch time is till 3 PM after which it closes.
Favorite Dish: ..any non-vegetarian dishes...
