This is a very well maintained place. There is lots of natural light during the day and the decoration and general theme is excellent. Their pizzas are delicious. I would say that the cheese:sauce:crust ratio is not the best, but still good.

In terms taste and quality of food, this is perhaps the best cafe. It has a limited menu but everything is amazing. We tried Pizza and their ice-cream. Both of them were really nice. People are nice especially Rajesh. Vibes are good with beautiful lights...and posters of old movies. When in Coonoor, must try this cafe.More

I decided on visiting Open Kitchen primarily for two reasons -- one , it had great reviews despite very limited menu. And two, it was run by a Bengali gentleman in faraway Coonoor....so the Bengali in me( I have no regional bias, but was just...curious) took me there. The first thing I was told that the Bengali gentleman has shifted base to Kochi and no longer stays in Coonoor. Why I am saying this is because in most of the videos and articles where Open Kitchen has featured talks prominently about the owner along with the food.... and that's why learning that he is no longer in Coonoor does come as somewhat of a disappointment. Now for the real thing --- I was not too hungry and so settled for their signature Beef Bacon Cheese Burger......and I must say that it lived upto its reputation. The patty was of a very good quality -- fresh and juicy and the bread was great too. No complaints at all. To be fair to the cafe, Rajesh who runs the place now is friendly and good to talk to. The decor is very good and though small, it is great to have a few pics clicked here. The only downside seemed to be the very limited menu. Yes there is a space crunch , but I thought that at least tea and coffee could ne added to the menu. Overall a nice place to be in and those who like pizza and burgers should make it a point to visit this place while in Coonoor.More

I came across this eatery while browsing through the list of restaurants in Coonoor on Google Maps. The interior of the place caught my attention, but the burgers on the menu are what enticed me to visit. I went on a weekday a little after...lunchtime, and the place was empty, which allowed me to have a closer look at the posters that adorn the walls. There are a lot of movie posters that tell me that the owner is a movie buff like me. The sitting area is not very large. There are five tables with benches that give it a dining hall feel. A spectacled man sitting near the cash register was the only person in the room, so I assumed he was the manager. I told him I'd have a beef cheeseburger, and he shouted out the order to someone in the kitchen. Different, but acceptable. Maybe that's why it's called "Open Kitchen." I imagined something else. There is a washroom, which is good, and I noticed it was pretty clean. The burger arrived after some time in a basket with a side of fries. I asked the manager if they served any drinks, and he said they only have Pepsi, which I don't like. I'm a Sprite/Mazza kind of guy. The burger looked great with a layer of cheese and some vegetables. After biting into it, I realized the bun was a bit crispy. The beef patty was not of the highest quality but was juicy and tasty. Eating burgers is usually a messy undertaking, much like egg puffs. The fries were pretty average. While I was there, two people walked in, a young guy and a teenager. It was hard to decide if they were locals or tourists by the way they were talking. I think they settled for a pepperoni pizza. Yep, the tables are close. Easy to overhear conversations. I was full after finishing the burger, but my Italian blood was pining for some coffee. The burger cost Rs. 330. Not bad. I would go back to try other burgers on the menu.More

Open kitchen is a tiny nondescript joint located on the first floor of a building. However, you’ll be quick to change your perception once your enter this place popping with posters of pop culture and an ever smiling owner! We ordered the Margherita and a...side of fries to test the waters and came out completely amazed. The food was freshly prepared and quick to our table. Absolutely loved the cozy ambience and our chat with the owner. If you also loved this place as much as we did, do not forget to leave a small note, the owner can help you with additionally stationery to let loose your creativity. We also opted for both death by chocolate and the salted caramel ice cream for desserts. Personally, preferred the ice cream more :). All in all, an amazing place and great value for money.More

Its a small place. the pizzas are just okayish. The menu said Bell pepper - but they were using capsicum because the bell/red peppers were very expensive!. The menu said Sundried tomatoes, but the tomatoes were oven dried and not sundried.....I needed to add extra...salt and seasonings at I found the taste pretty flat....More

Open Kitchen had the best beef cheeseburger I've eaten in a long long time. Juicy, medium rare beef patties inside brioche buns👌👌. Their desserts are superb too. Especially the brownie and tunisian orange almond cake.
