Some of their restaurants are pretty old and the ambience is not very encouraging with the waiters wearing soiled and stinky uniforms. However, all that matters to me is their cup of coffee.. I simply love it !!! The coffee can be accompanied by a Masala Dosa or Cutlets or fried eggs.. I'm sure you'll love it too..

Arrogant staff giving tons of attitude. Eat it or leave it is the underlying theme. I will never ever go there and order even a glass of water. Gone are those old days when ICH was the greatest hang-out joint in town, especially for the young at heart.

I came here just to experience the interesting architecture and interior of the building. Too bad the place is not properly maintained, and could get really hot if you're sitting far from the fan.

If one can judge the popularity by the number of people visiting daily, this comes among the top ten. Some people are regular visitors while many others come often. Coffee is one of the popular items here. I don't miss it whenever I pass through this place.

MLA hostel compound Coffee House is one of the best in the town with quite ambiance even though it is near the main street. It will be busy during breakfast, lunch & evening tea time. Delicious food & clean interior with extremely professional services. And the services offered here is only comparable with another Indian Coffee Houses in the town.

The best part of INDIAN COFFEE HOUSE is that it is INDIAN to the core. One can enjoy true INDIANESS in this place. One of the things to know about it that it is owned by all those who are working there. The staff loves the visitors and that is proved by their hospitality and service provided to its customers...
