The food quality and taste is just average. The service was quite bad. And when we told them that we would like to complain about their lack of service, they tried to pacify us with a complimentary starter. The view and ambience is great.

Food was average though the service was very good. Serving size was alright but the quality did not match the charges.

OPEN is a multi cuisine restaurant within Taj Kumarakom. We had most of our meals at 'Open' while staying at Taj Kumarakom. The crew at OPEN are extremely friendly and take good care of you. You invariably land up over eating. The setting by the lagoon and the evening local cultural program adds a unique dimension. It makes the dining... More

I booked a table for 4 for my mom's birthday. We were given a table overlooking the lake. It is beautiful but best enjoyed in daylight. The service was mixed as one of the employees seemed to be rather unhappy to have us there while another was very serviceable. The first even asked us if we can move our table... More

Awsome local cuisine, there are continental option as well. If you are a food lover, no need to look beyond this place in Kumarakom. However, remember this is not a budget restaurant; make sure you have enough limit in your credit card!

Open is, as the name suggests, an open air restaurant at the Taj Vivanta, Kumarakom. It is where guests are served the included breakfast, and it is popular for dinner as well. At lunchtime, most people prefer the air conditioned Currymeen, but we chose to have lunch at Open. Surprisingly, it was cool inside, and the view of the hotel's... More

Very good spread. Especially like sumptuous lunch. Do try the red fish curry and curious pickles they have.
