Food was average though the service was very good. Serving size was alright but the quality did not match the charges.

OPEN is a multi cuisine restaurant within Taj Kumarakom. We had most of our meals at 'Open' while staying at Taj Kumarakom. The crew at OPEN are extremely friendly and take good care of you. You invariably land up over eating.
The setting by the lagoon and the evening local cultural program adds a unique dimension. It makes the dining experience far superior. The crew ensured we got the food we desired and in line with our mood.
Overall a great experience.

I booked a table for 4 for my mom's birthday. We were given a table overlooking the lake. It is beautiful but best enjoyed in daylight.
The service was mixed as one of the employees seemed to be rather unhappy to have us there while another was very serviceable. The first even asked us if we can move our table mid way into our meal. This is not something that I expect from a 4 star hotel. Also it took for ever to clear plates and to have water glasses refilled. Service therefore scores low.
Food was not amongst the best and my mother being born in the region was extremely critical of the fish dishes but I can discount that given the tailoring of food towards tourists. However the dessert which we ordered had an artificial taste possibly because it was made using milk powder instead of fresh ingredients. Overall it had the feeling of a stock dessert they had pulled out of the freezer. So food would be average.
The speed of delivery was good. There are cultural events in the evening that guests can enjoy. Mosquitoes can be a problem despite best efforts of the staff to smoke it out.
Overall!! I am not looking forward to going back there and hope to find a better option when I am there.

Awsome local cuisine, there are continental option as well. If you are a food lover, no need to look beyond this place in Kumarakom. However, remember this is not a budget restaurant; make sure you have enough limit in your credit card!
