We struggled a bit in Fort Kochi. Some of the higher end restaurants including ones in the TripAdvisor Top 10 seem to be more style over substance. Then we found Mary’s Kitchen which was fabulous. The food was definitely the best we found in Kochin,...and some of the best we had in eight weeks in India. We had Aloo Gobi and the Pea & Cashew-nut curry with Naan which was delicious. The restaurant is just across from the Kathakali Centre so good for an after show dinner, but it’s pretty unassuming so easy to walk past. Make sure you don’t, we’re just sorry we didn’t notice it until the last night.More

Really enjoyed it there. Run by a quite nice family. Price for the food was good, too. Paid like 800 rps for three people.

Just round the corner from the Kerala Cultural Centre its a great place to get some before or after show food, it is very simple, home cooked, fresh and piping hot. Nothing fancy and overlooking the main road you can watch the evening unfold on...the road. Definitely not a romantic table for two - but good, cheap, made-to-order eats. My curry was very tasty and the lot was eaten.More

This restaurant is well hidden & don’t be put off- the food here is fabulous & delicious. The restaurant is up a small flight of stairs & all the food is made from scratch, so they can make it to your flavour- if you prefer...it mild (we didn’t!!). All the food was amazing- Prawn molee was yummy, potato dish very tasty & fresh, okra lovely & grilled chicken was juicy & delicious. A hidden gem in Fort Cochin & worth a visit. Service was excellent.More

We went to this restaurant twice, mostly because of the reviews. We were unimpressed the first time, so went the second time because we thought we were ordering the wrong items. Still unimpressed. Average food. Not very clean. Mosquito problem at night. The clientele are...mostly fans who sit at regular tables and are travelers to the in places of India. There is better food and better experiences in Fort Cochi.More

We ate here three times we liked it so much, could really recommend the pea and cashew curry, and prawn masala. The lime soda, and ginger and lemon soda were very refreshing, and we also liked the veg rice. Our meal came to around 600...rupees for two of us, amazing value. The service was friendly and quite quick. Would definitely go there again.More

Travelling with friends we had a cooking lesson from Mary then ate the food we had cooked on her roof top terrace. It was an altogether wonderful experience. Mary herself is charming and showed us how to use simple ingredients and spices in different ways...to produce four dishes that were distinct and delicious. One of the highlights was her puzzlement at our enquiring whether we could substitute different main ingredients, no you cooked that curry a different way. Mary has a small team around her and everything ran seamlessly - thank you Mary it was wonderful.More
