Very good food with eclectic but friendly service. Busy Saturday night that they handled without drama. Would highly recommend the Lamb Kurma. Reasonably priced wine and beer list. Reservation recommended.

Came here for dinner after a long day of travel. Maybe it is better to eat here for lunch with the buffet, but I would say it was about what I would expect from an Indian restaurant. Not bad, but I have had better.

Great buffet lunch restaurant for South Indian food. Always serving up some good curries, I love Kochin for a fast weekday lunch with coworkers. Overall pretty mild spice level, I haven’t seen any vindaloo curry here.
