Raandhal in Malayalam means lantern. The first thing that strikes you as you enter the restaurant is that there is a fair amount of parking in front. There is a security guard at the entrance. The Kerala style building with red-tiled sloping roof looks good. It is spacious inside and the seating is well laid out. There are lanterns placed at several places.

We went there for lunch and the lanterns were not lit. We ordered Nasrani chicken curry, Nadan fish curry and Kerala porottas. Both the curries had a coconut based taste. The fish curry had also probably used Kodampuli (also known as Malabar Tamarind). It had used Kingfish and I liked it better than the chicken curry. The chicken was soft and well-cooked.

Raandhal claims that they have free wi-fi but it did not work when I tried it. Service was good but the waiter forgot to smile.

First thing you notice is the ample parking space and the remarkable construction.But when you enter you become transparent so that the inconsiderate waitors does not see you .during rush hours you and your family will have to run and occupy the table.You will find food as authentic as home made food of malabar houses and this is first time in kannur.slightly overpriced.I was glad to hear that they have started home delivery as it is becoming a painful experience visiting the restaurant.Staff should be trained professionally how to treat customers as we malayalis are arrogant outside even though good at heart..

The newly opened restaurant is in the heart of the city , got ample parking space and has best interior ambience . The heritage look and fountain pool inside is very soothing and relaxing especially on a sunny afternoon .

Though on weekend afternoons and dinner time there would be heavy queue which is quite annoying at times .

The vegetarian food is pathetic ( had chappati and mixed veg curry ) .

The prices are exorbitant and doesn't match up for quality and service .

You can visit it for ambience and ample parking space :)
