Kumarakom has great meals which has brown rice with loads of sambar, avial and rasam. This place is very popular among the keralites.

It is just an everyday restaurant with poor ambience but definitely not for any special day. Fishes served were not very tasty or fresh.

We went there after a tiring day....and believe me, the food refreshed us to the core. The fish was excellent, chicken was succulent, beef was good and prawns were crispy along with superb rice dishes. Service is quick. Must go.......if you are in Chennai

Quality Kerala style food with good fish curry. A good place to dine with family and friends.Fish & puttu (steamed cylinders of ground rice) combination is a must try.

This restaurant is very famous for South Indian non vegetarian food . Beef , mutton , egg , fish curry & parotta , rice , kappa are served here . At peak time one will find the area crowded and one has to wait or the seats. Delicious food at reasonable cost. Recommended
