Only 15 persons can dine here in this hotel at a given time. Very tasty food. Food served here are only Chicken Fry, Ghee rice, Chicken liver fry, chicken... More

This restaurant is inside chala market. Difficult to find it as sign board is not visible easily. Ambience is not good for family, better suited for solo visit or take away. Had chappathi and their trademark baby chicken fry. Lime juice is freely provided. The bill is slightly surprising as the ambience and quantity does not match the price. However... More

What do you do with chicks that are 14-15 days old? Yes, they are tiny to eat. That's what we assume until you dine here, and realise things. Like baby corn(which is not actually young corn), baby chickens are different altogether to savour. Kethel's is one of the most visited restaurants by foodies. A MUST VISIT

Any nonveg foodie who visit Trivandrum should never miss Kethel. The real name of this restaurant is 'Hotel Rahmaniya'. Situated inside a small 'galli' in the busy Chalai Bazaar, this place is famous for its unique taste and delicate chicken. If you are lost on the way, just ask for Kethal and every one will route you right. The menu... More

The chicken fried in coconut oil is what this is famous for. The chicken are tender and probably little chicks with their unique masala, is what makes the difference. The joint is not easily visible on Chalai Road, since it is tucked in one of the bylanes. It is small, not known for parking space, ambience and family-friendly. The visit... More

On the Chalai rod, it is a small gully that will take you to Rahmaniya. It is easy to miss it. There is one big hotel at the end of this lane, which is much newer. The one that has been around since 1949 is just next to the big one (and I personally prefer this to the more modern... More
