Went there once with my friend. It was not a memorable experience. The food was too costly for whatever we were provided with.

One of the best restaurant in Kochi. It is situated in Vytilla. There is ample parking space is available. This hotel is famous for Non vegetarian Items including sea foods and Biriyanis.

The restaurant near vytilla (fortunately, with good parking space), offers an extensive range of sea food to choose from (if you are customizing your meal). It would unwise to miss their mutton biryani (far better than most Kerala restaurants but not so great as the chettinad cuisine). Slightly overpriced for the average quality and poor service they offer, the food... More

I had lunch from the restaurant at Kadavanthra , Kochi. I had mutton Biriyani. The food was good which is reasonably priced. I recommend this restaurant for non veg food.

The Big Chef is really the biggest in town. His varieties are surely special and one needs to try that when he is a Kochitie. Well served, well catered ad tasty food in the best rates.

As my title suggests, its only in the name. The food is quite good but not what you would expect from Naushad. The restaurant is quite nicely done and very clean. The waiters are very courteous and quick as well. They have ample parking space as well. Good place to go to eat with office mates. *Above average*

Naushad Big Chef, has become a hot spot for good quality food in cochin. It has one of the best biriyani's in the town. The mutton biriyani is worth each and every penny you spent. The only problem with the restaurant is its parking and also the service could be little bit improved.
