I visited this restaurant for the first time as an independent backpacker from Mumbai city in May last year with my mother, who had told me about her childhood memories at this restaurant. When the day came, when we could finally visit the restaurant, not only did I get to put our taste buds to work, but also enjoyed some excellent service and we could sit most of the day without doing anything at all inside the restaurant. We could also enjoy the city view from the spirally designed restaurant without any hindrances. I could relate to the experiences my mother had shared with me both while enjoying the ambiance as well as while speaking to the friendly waiters about the restaurant. Going up the spiral structure to get a seat near the kitchen at the restaurant was indeed an experience in itself. I had ordered some sweets and some American Falooda as the appetizer, some bhindi masala [okra masala] and a rice plate for the main course and fruit salad for the dessert, though their menu had much more to offer, including different world cuisines at a low price. By the time we decided to get more food, we realized that we wanted the fantastic taste of the American Falooda to linger on. So, we took with us some Russian tortes in a parcel – something I had never tried before in my life - and we also took home a parcel of happy memories with it. It was one day in our Trivandrum trip that we can never forget.

Interesting circular architecture and a popular spot for cheap snacks, full of Indians and backpackers. Coffee is tje thing, obviously, but there's also tea. If the place looks crowded, try one of the tables near the kitchen at the top of the 'tower'. Just don't expect a calm place for a cup of coffee. The

This restaurant chain initiated by Sri AKG is really a common mans delight. The ambience is simple and exhaustive menu is cheap. The major attraction of course is coffee and masala dosa - (which is made red bcz of betroot_). Like coffee day one can be here for a long time without any one asking you to vacate. Hence ICH, as it is called locally, used to be the birth place for many novels, cinemas and all

Visiting an Indian Coffee House is like stepping back in time. The food is served by waiters in uniforms with freshly starched hats. The food and coffee are delicious. I always make a point of visiting ICH when I am near one.
