As thali places go, this one is a winner. Located between the fort and Jewtown. Good dosa masalas and an available a/c room if you arrive on a scorching day.

Leave the Post Colonial part of Kochi and the tourist restaurant behind and embark on a different Journey: go to Sri Krishna cafe and order a Thali. It will be a rewarding experience and a little taste of "real India". Fabulous!

We came for breakfast and had Dosa which was ok but not more. It was cheap though. So ok if you don‘t want to spend too much money.

I had masala dosa - fresh, tasty and not oily. And...so cheap. Always a good sign when there are lots of customers, many of whom are local. I’ll be back for a few more meals.
