Thrissur Food Guide: 10 Must-Eat Restaurants & Street Food Stalls in Thrissur

January 27, 2018 Jasper Kershner

Thrissur is regarded as the cultural capital of Kerala, a beautiful coastal region of southwest India with a history deeply rooted in the spice trade. For an exercise in absolute serenity, schedule an overnight houseboat tour of the local backwaters. If you’re lucky enough to visit during the temple festival of Pooram, you’ll experience lively music performances, fireworks, shadow puppet shows and processionals of beautifully adorned elephants.

Pathans

One of the oldest hotels & pure veg restaurant in town

Reviewed By sreejithenergetic - Thrissur, India

One of the best restaurants to have dosas. The South Indian cuisine is excellent.but I will not recommend dishes like chilly good or gopi Manchurian. They have special dosas like mushroom masala dosas or paneer dosas.. which are excellent. Paper dosas is a special item of this hotel.they serve meals for lunch. The prices are in mid range.

Although you might have to wait a while for a seat at this fast-paced, quick-service hotel, the wait is worth it. The traditional Kerala food served here is some of the best in town; no wonder they have a loyal following!

Royal Court by Joys Palace

Reviewed By labal - chennai

The breakfast spread is rather good, predominantly Indian food. The dinner buffer is priced reasonably. The staff are quite courteous and the seating/ambience is comfortable as well. Service from the live counters during breakfast is rather quick and during the dinner as well, when ordering a-la-carte. Overall, a good place to eat out with family and friends.

Indian Wok

Reviewed By N_Rathin - Thrissur, India

Indian wok is a favorite of mine when it comes to indo-Chinese food. It was located at a calm and peaceful location with limited Seating. Now they have moved to the bustling Shoba City Mall... If u are visiting the mall, I would recommend you to try the food from Indian wok.

India Coffee House

Reviewed By Skumar1974 - Thrissur, India

Located at the Paliam Road, near North Private Bus Stand next to the cinema halls Kairali and Sree.... this place opens very early and breakfast is available piping hot from 7am onwards. Crunchy Meduvadas, crispy dosas..... ghee roast and masala dosas.
The masala in the masala dosas and cutlets are different as beetroot is a regular ingredient used to make masala. Ginger is a forerunner in flavour of the masala too.
With GST gone down, rates have become more affordable But some private restaurants still tend to not decrease the rates by increasing the original price. Thus the final total still remains the same or increases, but never decreases.

A great place to dine with your family. We dined at this restaurant thrice we were staying at Lulu garden hotels and expected to cost a bomb. But surprisingly this place is actually a budget-friendly premium restaurant that does not cut any corners in terms of ingredients or quantity.

With diversified interests in Hospitality, Real Estate, Finance etc. the group had its operations centered in Chennai. The Hotel was established in 1948 in the name “The Oriental State Hotel” on a sprawling 4 acre property in the heart of Thrissur City.
