Fodor's Review

The intriguing, extensively researched menu draws on the myriad international influences on Kochi's history. Alongside traditional fare you'll find unusual dishes bearing the stamp of the Middle East, Portugal, the local Jewish community, and the days of the British Raj. Some age-old recipes have been passed on to the restaurant by local communities. The lofty, elegant dining room is windowed on all sides, and capped with a gabled wooden ceiling (resembling an upturned

ship) supported by massive wood beams. Live sitar and tabla music is performed every evening. Don't miss out on the railway mutton curry (from the British Raj era) or the chuttulli meen, grilled fish cooked in spices, which is a favorite of local Jewish cuisine. The Padua Duck Moilee is another Kerala dish worth trying. Vegetarians may want to try the bol, deep-fried flat breads made from rice served with lentils. Wind up with the vattalappam, a Syrian Christian version of caramel custard utilizing jaggery and coconut milk.
