We found shelter in this restaurant during a heavy rain. The family running the place was very nice and the food was delivered quickly despite several power failures due to the lightning storm. The food was very good and inexpensive. Most importantly, they serve actual Indian food and do not try to serve mainly Italien / American cuisine like so... More

We ate there twice on our visit to Fort Cochin, and despite a wait of 40 minutes, it was absolutely worth it. I think the fact that the restaurant was full both times (locals and tourists) just goes to show its popularity. The... More

We decided to abandon the guide book and take a chance on a restaurant on our walk around town. We came upon Talk of the Town and were drawn in by it's bright and breezy look. The menu was simple and with reasonable prices. Between us, we ordered the local fish curry and a Kerala Avial dish. Both were absolutely... More

The food takes really long to be served and it is not that cheap. We paid INR 900 for 2 soft drinks ,... More

We enjoyed our evening at Talk of The Town, and had a very good meal. Lovely mother, grandmother and children. Felt like eating in someone's home, as opposed to a restaurant, which was a plus for us.

The food was alright but service was very slow. We had to wait for a good 45min for a butter chicken. Prawn curry was not available due to lack of ingredients.

Not going to say it's the best food we've have in India however it's worth the money and the owners are really nice. Definitely worth a visit!
