Description: The Cochin, is the first authentic South Indian restaurant in Hertfordshire, which offers the real flavors of south Indian cooking.We offers a good choice of meat fish and vegetarian dishes. Cochin is the most popular city in Kerala, which is one of the South Indian state. Kerala is known as 'Gods Own Country' because of its long coastline,numerous rivers,backwater networks and the availability of numerous spices. We welcome you all to try the best South Indian Dishes cooked by experienced chefs, who learned their first lessons of cooking from South India.

Only said no to the 'one of the best meals question cos I've had some fabulous experiences. This place serves genuine keralan food (we've been there so we can compare). Don't expect tikka masala. Every dish has a distinct flavour, and fish is the speciality, together with dosas and special'bread' rather than always rice. Slightly slow service, but the waiters were very friendly (as are the Keralans in general). Reasonable prices too.

A few years ago The Coachin opened in same place as now. It is not what I was expecting. Food nowhere near as good as other Indian
Restaurant s in Hemel. The place closed. Now it has reopened so thought would try again. Still not good.

Having visited Kerala & really enjoyed the food - we tried The Cochin hoping to revisit the tastes & we were not disappointed.
The service & food were all excellent - we would highly recommend visiting this restaurant if you love good Southern Indian food - especially seafood.
The prices were also good as were the portions.
The only problem was that we couldn't finish all we had ordered - so we will order less next time.
Next time will happen very soon!
