This restaurant is known mainly for Kozhikodan food. One should like the full spring fry, mutta mala, kadka fry etc..

I was a regular visitor to Zains when I was working in Calicut back in 2003. I was expecting the same finger licking taste when I visited Zains with my family. Even though the food was good, that old secret taste has left the food. Still a good place for an authentic Kozhikkodan Biriyani treat!

It is a decent place. At one time it was really fabulous, but somewhere somehow they have lost the sheen. Still good enough. Not too expensive. The Prawn Biryani is a rarity in other places

Not an high end restaurant. Has a good number of varieties of malabari dishes and snacks. Does not have a parking place. Although the food is okay, the overall maintenance of the place, service, wash area etc is not up-to the mark.
