Don't be fooled by the exterior, try everything and especially the fish polichattu! It's delicious, home style food.

No fancy interors or even exteriors. Don't be alarmed. If you are used to the fineries in life, leave them behind for an explosive journey of great traditional Shappu food taste. Things get very serious once the food is served. Piping hot. Screaming spices. Traditional fares. All a fine medley of a great gastronomical extravaganza... I chose a traditional meal... More

It resembles the old toddy shops. Worn out look, no ambience, no luxury seats, but to compensate all this you get good shappu curry preparations. Tasty with reasonable price.

I heard a lot about “Shappu Curry” from my friends. So, when I visited cochin, I decided to have lunch from there. The ambiance will not attract you from outside and inside. But the food is awesome. We ordered Tapioca(Kappa in Malayalam), Pearl Spot (Karimeen pollichathu in Malayalam), Pomfret fish curry(Avoli in Malayalam). The fish was superb and mouthwatering. But... More

Located right behind the Maharaja's college on TD road. Nothing to shout about from the outside. Sort of shouts "Enter at your own risk". Have a seat when your turn comes and the experience begins. Friendly, smiling stewards will serve you a mountain of rice with all the traditional accompaniments. Eat to your hearts content, that's how good the grub... More

Shappu curry may not be your first choice when it comes to places to have a meal at. However it is also the first place you would go to for non veg traditional food if you are very very hungry. The place is right behind Maharajas college, you can park you vehicle on the road. One look at the place... More

First - you need to be ready to accept the "native" environment of this restaurant as it is not one of those tourist standard cleanliness. But food is beyond good in terms of the taste.
