Malabar Grills

Indian in Kochi (Cochin)

Join feasting Indian families at this sprawling modern restaurant fronted by a barbecue just southeast of Fort Cochin's tourist centre. Breakfasts (₹30 to ₹80) are classic South India: puttu, iddiyappam (a rice noodle dish), dosa, idli with sambar (soupy lentil dish with vegetables). Later, the focus turns to thalis (₹90 to ₹140), biryanis and, especially, grilled meats and seafood.

The signature is the ₹1300 seafood platter.
