Malabar Junction

Top choice international in Kochi (Cochin)

Set in an open-sided pavilion or at candle-lit poolside tables, the outstanding Malabar House restaurant is (almost) Bollywood-star glam. The ambitious East-meets-West menu creatively fuses local and European flavours – the signature dish is the seafood platter (₹3200), or try an elegant 'trilogy' of Indian curries. An impressive choice of Indian wines (Sula, Fratelli, Grover Zampa) accompanies meals.
