    The Swiss Cafe and Bakehouse!: Swiss Bakery- Something unexpected in Kerala!

    by suvanki Updated May 3, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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!!

    MOJO: a fusion of western and eastern food

    This is an extremely busy place which closes late. You may have to wait a bit to get a seat.
    The food is worth it. It is quite a hit among children.My nephews have been going there and ordering the same thing over and over! one nephews favourite lasagna, anothers fried ice cream . My mother ordered a special sizzler had to be shared ..lots of food.

    One disadvantage is the limited parking space. If you go late you can park on the road side but then you may have to book in advance for a seat.

    Favorite Dish: Lasgna

    fried rice

    situated on a busy road next to The Taj vazhuthacaud , this place can be missed easily. It doesn't look like a busy place, inside is crampy and crowded but it serves delicious fried rice and non veg dishes.If you have time to spend go there because there is an inordinate delay in getting served.Three storied but I don't remember using a lift .

    Favorite Dish: fried rice

    Kerala House: Kerala food

    by yumiyun Written Apr 1, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Want to taste what Keralites eat in a decent place? Kerala House has a lunch meal for you. A few items of vegetable dishes (and chicken/fish if you wish) with few selections of liquid curry and rice.

    Kerala House also has a roof top restaurant open in the evenings. But remember, Kerala meals are only served at lunch time.

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).

    Zam Zam palayam: strictly for nonvegetarians

    by 6aruna Updated Feb 8, 2014

    Extremely congested,smoky ,crowded eatery in the heart of the city,Palayam.Always crowded. heavenly aroma for non veg lovers . veggies can be put off by the smell of burned and fried mutton and assorted nonveg.Their pathiri and non veg curries are a hit. Very popular hangout for youngesters with their parked bikes.Must be authentic malabar food guaging from the number of burkha clad muslim families thronging the place.

    I was surprised to find their icecreams yummy and in quantities far more than what is supplied by usual eateries of this standard.

  • Seaface, KOvalam: Succulent Lobster Curry

    by indiaaah Written Nov 21, 2003

    the open-air restaurant by the poolside overlooks the sea. catch a seat by the edge so that you are closer to the sea.

    the seafood is great (usually...). talk to the waiters to see what is good that day. try their lobster and prawn preparations... their thai food is suspect.

    Favorite Dish: a loster curry (forget the name)
