Went for dinner with my family. They didn’t guide us to family room upstairs which was some what better than the dirty dinning area around the entrance.The staff were so unprofessional,they didn’t understand “wash room and rest room”. There are no indications for family room...or rest room Food was pathetic. Biriyani was pieces of over grown chicken covered by cheap rice. The gravy was raw. No aroma , rice and meat might have cooked separately and serving as different versions Cleaning boy was handling drinking water Wonder how it is rated in google and trip advisor Try never , Try street food in Payyambalam beach, they far betterMore

This place is worth a visit if you like the famous Malabar Biriyani. This biriyani rice is lesser spicier than the other biryanis of India relies more on the flavours than spice to make its statement and is one of the very rare biriyani which...is made from Jeera Samba rice which has its own smell and flavour rather than the Basmati riceMore

Centrally located, small & very busy restaurant. Food is good and fairly priced. There is no AC area available & ventilation is not that good making it a congested place with a lot of visitors. Not an ideal place for small children.

One of the best biriyani in Kannur. Good service, but no parking not available. You will get good gravy that is sufficient for eating porotta😊... Also the Lime tea, I didn't taste such a lime tea from anywhere.

MVK is one of the best and oldest restaurants in kannur. It's famous of biriyanni. This is non AC basic level restaurant with no car park. It's clean and customer service is good. Been to this place for many years. But this time I can't...full marks to the chicken biriyani which I order. I want biriyanni with lots of masala and it should be semi dry. What I got this time is dry, less masala biriyani. I ordered this around 2200 which is almost closing time. Because of this, I am not giving negative marks. Will try this dish next time and hopefully it will get back to his authentic kannur biriyani taste.More
