Great food and excellent guest management. Tried their seafood and biryani. Both were very well made. You get to choose the fish at their live fish counter.

This will be the worst restaurants that I have ever visited.. Gone to have my birthday lunch at 1.15PM.. they offered a verbal menu, as they are well known for sea food ordered the same based on the menu given.. after 5 minutes of waiting...restaurant guy comes back and tells the items that we have ordered is no more available.. it was a disappointment and needed to leave the restaurant as they only have meat/chicken. A restaurant who runs without the menu provided and no stock available within 1.5hrs of they opening for the day, and a verbal menu with no stock/ no food available… real sad and worse…More

Visited this place for dinner with family. It has an old school charm and a good ambience. Though this place is known for seafood, we had enough of that already and opted for our typical order of North Indian food. Food ordered were: Tandoori chicken-...5/5(yum) Butter chicken- 4.5/5 Butter naan-4/4 tandoori roti- 3/5 Kerala parotta- 4.5/5 Green salad-5/5 Papaya juice-5/5 Food was good, service could have been better but overall worth the money paid. Value for money-4/5.More

Guided by the reviews, we reached this place for a lunch. The place was crowded for a Saturday afternoon and we had to wait about 10 mins to get seated. There were not much options available at that time, and somehow everybody was binging on...Biryani :) so we followed the mandate of the crowd and ordered the Chicken Biryani. The food was pretty tasty and the amazing part was that even after stuffing ourselves, it did not feel heavy (something very unusual). The seating and ambience was traditional and the it looked like a go-to place for the locals. FYI - there is ample parking space.More

Stated to be the best restaurant in Kannur for Kerala style cuisine and sea-food, we were recommended to try its specialities during our recent trip to Kerala. We were primarily interested in the sea food and were thrilled to see the live fish counter kept...at the entrance of the hotel where fish and other seafood items were available for choosing. Customers can decide how the fish is to be cooked. We chose a huge Pompret and requested for it to be barbequed and made adequately spicy. The final product was yum to say the least. We dined twice during our two days in Kannur and only have praise for the food served at Raandhal. The service too was superb and the overall expenditure was absolutely reasonable. The restaurant has adequate parking and is constructed in the form of a Kerala house with adequate seating. A must visit place for anyone who is interested in Kerala style cuisine. Lovely food!More

The restaurant is very large and very lovely and noisy. The menu is absolutely massive with so much choice. Great vegetarian options. Everything we chose was excellent. Reasonably priced.
