Spent three days in Kochi during a recent vacation..and ate lunch at this place twice! Loved the food. Spicy and delicious, authentic Kerala food. Must try the beef and karimeen polichathu. The rice served here is the Kerala style one, not basmati. So, some may not like it but it goes well with the meals! If you are not picky about crowd and ambience, this is perhaps the best place to have a heavy Kerala-style lunch in Cochin!
*Go early. And I mean by 12 p.m. to avoid the crowd. The second time, I reached there by 1 pm and didn't get a seat for 20 mins! Also, food is not prepared there. You get it only for as long as the supplies last. Most of the food is over by 1:30 p.m.
*You need to fight for a table when you go at the peak crowd time. Don't be nice..get hold of a table and stand next to it, even if someone is still eating. Else, someone else will claim the table, even if you were in the restaurant before they even arrived. There is no orderly system in place for seating here.
*If you don't want the meals, there's always appam and side dishes. Not many options, but all the food items they sell, though few, are delicious.
Walking distance from the Ernakulam boat jetty. You might miss this place as board is in Malayalam. Thanks to the uploaded picture, was able to spot it, else would've walked past the shop for sure :)
