Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

First visit to Cochin. Very impressed with the choice and quality of the food. The service was very good; timely but unobtrusive.

Most authentic Seafood Thaali (Keralan set menu meal with fisherman's soup, 3 seafood items, vegetarian dishes, paratta, rice and dessert) that I have tasted anywhere in the UK. Reasonably priced with a nice manager/owner (Jason). Keep up your standards ☺️👍🏽

If you want a truly unique curry experience, this is the place to come. The Keralan food is second to none, the service exceptional and all for a very reasonable price. Come and pay Cochin a visit, you won't regret it!

We really enjoyed the whole experience of this Keralan Indian restaurant . From the service provided by the particularly attentive and charming waitress Soorya, to the tasty Vegetable thali, accompanied with a Spicy aubergine curry. This is a very decent Indian restaurant and a little...different to the other restaurants in outer London towns like Hemel.More

Hi, I reckon that the area just opposite the restaurant is for Blue Badge holders only - 6 or 7 spaces. Enjoy your meal!
