I travel often to Kochi for work and always visit this restaurant for my fix of Kerala food. As a visitor to Kochi, whether on work or as a tourist, this is the best place to try out the various delicacies that Kerala cuisine has to offer. On my last visit I had the Kerala prawns curry, karimeen polichatu, prawns... More

If you would like to take a visiting guest to experience Karimeen Pollichathu in Kochi, there is no other place like Hotel Grand you can ever think of; the hotel serves authentic Kerala food, primarily non vegetarian. Hotel serves all sort of dishes including seafood, chicken, mutton, duck, pork etc, all cooked in Travancore style. Started in 1963, the hotel... More

We had gone to Grand hotel for team lunch on the way to airport. And believe you me, we don't regret our decision. The service was prompt and food quality was heaven. Will recommend the Fish Moilee, Nei Meen fry( Surmai fry) and Karimeen Pollichathu was simply fresh and superb.Kerala brown rice with Sambhar was too good. And to close... More

This is an old restaurant and they have been known for good south Indian food , was very much satisfied with the kerala food , to start with there is a complementary basket of papads . But I wish they had to keep a smaller menu with only indian food and have a special section for Chinese food

A hotel with a traditonal grandeur , updated to contemporary style interiors. They serve great food which have made it a very popular restaurant. The Dum biriyani is delicious even though a bit pricey. Many foreigners do come to the hotel and resturant . Beer is also available. But still the ambience is good and decent. Families throng the place... More

Waited 1 hr to get a waiter to attend us. No sign of anybody 30 mins later although there were waiters around doing nothing. When i called someone nicely to give an order, he said they are busy and by busy he meant waiting around a group of foreigners hoping for a bulky tip. When the waiter asked his supervisor... More

I had been to Grand once before in 2011 and was quite impressed by the food, so decided to try it again when i visited Cochin last couple of days back. I was glad that the taste was still the same level, though i cannot say the same for the price. Had some seafood soup, fish and Beef thick roast... More

This is one of the oldest hotels in Cochin and the restaurant is simply wonderful. They have a varied menu with Continental, Chinese, North Indian and South Indian fare. Although I have been here many times over the years, I have to admit that I haven't tried anything but the traditional Kerala dishes, the ones for which they are famous.... More

I'm a foodie and eat out a lot. The only reason I don't go to Grand Hotel is, it is expensive! But if you look at the taste or want to try the authentic food, this is the place to go. Great ambience, ample parking space, lot of choices and very mild colors/spices. Excellent food. I would rate this as... More
